Samsung's new partnership with Meta is a deal with the devil

Samsung’s new partnership with Meta is a deal with the devil

The new Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 look like they are great phones. I’m not a big fan of foldable phones, but even I think the Z Flip 4 is probably the “funnest” phone we’ve ever seen, and completely understand its appeal. But there is one thing in particular about both of them that bothers me: Samsung’s new partnership with Meta.

You probably have no idea this is a thing, but at the very end of the Unpacked event, I noticed a slide on the big screen that shows Samsung’s official partners. We see that a lot from every phone company when they release a new product, so it’s not surprising. What did surprise me was seeing Meta there.

We reached out to both Samsung and Meta, and confirmed that there is indeed a special/new partnership between the two with the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4. On the consumer-facing side, it’s a way to use the Flexcam mode — where you fold the phone in a way that acts as a kickstand to use the cameras — in Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp.
