Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 get new performance profiles

Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphones have already received a battery boost of sorts with their new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoCs, which the brand claims can deliver a 30 percent boost in battery life. But One UI 4.1.1 has also brought along a new battery-boosting performance profile that is said to enhance the battery life of these foldables even further. The news comes as both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 pre-orders go live in India today.

As reported by 9to5Google, the new Performance profile for the foldables can be found deep in the Settings app of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, where users can now choose between two profiles – “Standard and “Light”. The new profiles seem to replace the earlier one which could be found in Settings> Battery and Device Care> Battery> More battery settings> Enhanced processing on the Galaxy Flip 3.

While the “Enhanced processing” mode would speed up the overall processing of the phone (in terms of apps and smoothness), Samsung's description made it clear that it uses more battery life to deliver the same. The new performance profiles found in the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 models offer the user a choice between “Standard” processing, which according to Samsung's description is recommended for a balance of performance and battery life, or “Light” where the system prioritises battery life and cooling efficiency over processing speed. Compared to the current models, the new phones basically allow the user to prioritise battery life over performance, versus the previous mode which basically allowed a speed boost with the default set to saving battery life.

It isn't clear as to how much of a difference the two performance profiles make. But a Reddit user Dudi4poLFr put up a thread explaining that there is a noticeable impact between the Standard and Light modes, but also concluded that Light mode cuts down on the high-performance core and Adreno GPU, bringing down power consumption when running benchmarks. The user did conclude that even with Light mode on, “the phone feels snappy and responsive” and that it will only impact games and demanding 3D applications.
