Co-founder of tech giant Microsoft, Bill Gates, revealed that he prefers to use an Android phone rather than an iPhone. He currently uses the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which he received from Samsung’s boss, Jay Young Lee, during a visit to South Korea.
Gates shared this information in an answer on the Reddit forum themed “Ask Me Anything”. Previously, Gates used the Galaxy Z Fold 3, also produced by Samsung.
“I have a Samsung Fold 4 that Samsung Director JY Lee gave me when I met him in South Korea to update my Fold 3. Of course I use Outlook and a lot of Microsoft software on it,” Gates said.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a cellphone released by a technology giant from South Korea in August 2022. This cellphone is the fourth in a series of folding smartphones from Samsung.
The Z Fold 4 screen panel consists of a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X with a resolution of 2176 x 1812 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. When folded like a book, there is a secondary screen with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a size of 6.2 inches, a resolution of 2316 x 904 pixels, and a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The Z Fold 4 has a capacity of 4,400mAh and supports fast wireless charging and Wireless Powershare. It is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and is equipped with 12GB of RAM.
Gates admits that he is not too focused on cellphones. He prefers large-screen PCs because he “loves sending long emails, reading long documents and research journals”.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 is the perfect device for Gates, as it is widescreen suitable for reading journals. It is priced on the global market starting at US$1,799 (around Rp. 26.6 million).
Previously, Gates had expressed his visionary thoughts about technology in 2062. According to him, at this time cellphones that fit in the pocket are still popular devices in the public as a result of a combination of chips and software.
Bill Gates is a great example of someone who is comfortable with technology and is ready to use the latest gadgets. With the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, he can easily read long documents and research journals, making it the ideal device for him.
