Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4 equipped to support swipe for Split-Screen feature

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 have been on the rumour mill for quite some time now. The brand is expected to unveil the latest foldable phones in August this year. Ahead of the launch, a rumour suggests that Samsung will add a swipe for split-screen feature on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 for multitasking. This functionality is expected to allow users to enter the split-screen mode by just swiping on the screen. Other major players in the foldable phone market, Oppo and Vivo, also introduced similar features on their devices earlier.


It is being expected that Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will have swipe for split-screen function which could open apps in split-screen mode with a simple swipe. In the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 models, the split-screen mode can be accessed through the Multi window tray or the Recents apps menu. The addition of this new feature in upcoming models will let users quickly switch between apps.


Oppo and Vivo smartphones offer a similar quick feature to access apps on split-screen. On Oppo Find N foldable device, the split-screen mode can be used by swiping down on the unfolded screen with two fingers, while on Vivo smartphones this can be done by vertically swiping up with three fingers.
