We are still not happy with Samsung’s foldable phones. But last year the Galaxy Z Flip 3 managed to score 8/10 inches our strict review– It was not perfect, but it offered a fascinating look in the future. And to our excitement, the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4 can give us a deeper look at what’s coming.
Let’s remove one thing; early leaks indicate that Samsung will only make gradual changes to this year’s folding devices. Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 come with some small upgrades and should look identical to their predecessors.
Samsung is expected to debut with the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in August or September 2022. Previous Samsung folders were released in August, and source John Prosser suggests that Samsung will host the unveiling event. on August 10.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 should run together Galaxy Z Fold 4 on Samsung. And as with most versions of Samsung, these phones should go on sale about two weeks after their unveiling.
Pricing is still a mystery. And while the Galaxy Z Flip 3 retails for $ 999, there’s no guarantee that Samsung will keep that price for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Lack of chips, increased logistics costs and other hurdles could affect the price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. everything new smartphones.
However, 2022 is a rather unpredictable year. We won’t be surprised if Samsung slows down its new folding devices.
Early leaks suggest that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will look very similar to its predecessor. However, Samsung may implement a handful of small design changes to make this puppy worth upgrading.
Most distributors agree that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will use a 6.7-inch foldable display, the same screen from last year. But the improved hinge can give the phone narrower gap when closed. And as with previous releases, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 should have a less unpleasant crease.

Yogesh Brar says Samsung will use a 2.1-inch display cover in the Galaxy Z Flip 4. That’s about a quarter of an inch larger than the cover display of the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
And oddly enough, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 may be a little thicker than its predecessor. Experts c 91 Mobile devices expect the phone to measure 165.1 x 71.9 x 7.2 mm when unfolded (that’s 7.2 mm wide compared to 6.9 mm). Information received from SamMobile states that the phone will have a battery greater than 3700 mAh (from 3200 mAh), which could explain the thicker construction.
However, I’m not sure the extra 0.3mm thickness explains this big battery upgrade. Previous leaks point to a 3300 mAh battery, which seems more appropriate. (But we still don’t know much about this phone, so it’s up in the air.)
Oh, and according to the leak Ross Young, Galaxy Z Flip 4 should be available in gold, gray, light blue and light purple. Last year’s model put a lot of emphasis by color and price to attract young buyers so that even if this leak is incorrect, it is safe to assume that the Flip 4 will be available in several colors and will support Samsung’s Custom customization system.
Geekbench result revealed by The icy universe shows that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will probably run the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor (upgrade from the Snapdragon 888 5G) and use 8 GB of RAM (same as last year).
The leaks also point to a larger battery, which is great since the Galaxy Z Flip 3 had average battery life. SamMobile claims that Samsung will upgrade from a 3200mAh battery to a battery with a Capacity 3700 mAh. Again, I question this leak and previous information shows that Samsung will only upgrade to a 3300 mAh battery.
We can also get a faster loading speed. As you dig through a Chinese comparison site, Mukul Sharma found information that suggests a 25-watt charging speed in the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4. Previous models only supported 15-watt fast charging.
Other specifications, including storage configurations, are unknown.
Old rumors say that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have three external cameras, although such rumors now seem untrue. New leaks from Yogesh Brar aim for 12MP main camera, 12MP ultra wide lens and 10MP selfie camera. These are the same cameras we got with last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 3.
It’s a shame because the Galaxy Z Flip 3 didn’t take amazing pictures. The cameras were definitely usable, but they were did not match the price on the phone and does not match the usual quality of Samsung.
Some leaks claim that Flip 4 will use selfie camera under the screen, similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3. While the camera below the screen wouldn’t be a big surprise, a traditional hole-punching lens seems more likely. After all, this should be Samsung’s “affordable” folding.
We expect the Galaxy Z Flip 4 to launch in August or September along with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The price is still unknown, although Samsung will probably aim for last year’s price of $ 999.
