With each new leak of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, it looks a little less like a smartphone and more like a tablet, and a new leak is further proof of that.

According to SamMobile (opens in a new tab), Samsung plans to release a version of the tablet with 1TB of storage. It's unclear where the site got this information from, but it's double the maximum space the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has.

If a device has a lot of storage space like this, that makes it really useful for professional-level business users: you can store and edit lots of video and photo files, or play around with game resources.

These are things you would normally do on a tablet or other large screen device; very few users are likely to need a smartphone with 1TB of space.

In fact, the plupart des appareils que nous voyons avec 1 To de stockage sont des tablets, comme l'iPad Pro, car il vous permet de stocker des charges de fichiers pour travailler lorsque vous êtes en déplacement, et de télécharger également des charges d 'Applications. So in that way, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could be an iPad alternative, and because it's also likely to be super powerful, with a high-end chipset like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it's more in line with the iPad Pro level.

Unfortunately, a 4TB Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 1 is also likely to be very expensive, giving it another parallel with the iPad Pros.

Analysis: a tablet by another name

There are a few other leaked aspects of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, aside from the ones we've detailed above, that make it look like a small tablet.

First, it will apparently be compatible with Samsung's S Pen stylus, and could even come with a slot for that.

It is also said to have one or even two cameras under the screen, which would ensure that the screen-to-body ratio of the device is higher, giving you a better viewing experience.

Of course, screen size is also a big factor in the tablet-like design: According to leaks, the main screen (when the phone is unfolded) will be 7,6 inches in diameter, only slightly smaller than the main screen. of the iPad mini (2021). . It is much larger than any standard smartphone on the market.

As a foldable phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is sure to be a smartphone for all intents and purposes, but it looks like it could have some popular tablet features too.

That could make it a tempting purchase for those who want a phone that's also a tablet and don't want to spend money on two separate devices. But we'll have to see what the device looks like when it launches around August to be sure.
