After the release of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 last year, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will have a challenging task ahead of it. Samsung updated its clamshell-style foldable phone with that model. Continuing to improve across the board and delivering a considerably more affordable $999 starting price. However, there is always an opportunity for expansion, particularly in the still-emerging field of foldable phones. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is far from flawless. Thus, Samsung has many opportunities to improve it when a new version is released later this year. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 might be a game-changer from battery life to ruggedness.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 is among today’s most intriguing gadgets. It lacks the power of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the wow factor of the Galaxy Z Fold3. Nonetheless, it provides a handy foldable experience at a price that isn’t out of the ordinary for a high-end device: $999. The Korean conglomerate already is hard at work on next-generation, which is expected to come later in 2022. Here’s all we know about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

Price & Availability

According to rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will launch with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 on August 10, 2022, before being accessible on August 26, 2022. However, Samsung has not yet verified this. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 & Z Fold 3 were revealed in August 2021 and was accessible for purchase at the end of August 2021. August is typically earmarked for the Galaxy Note series. It seems logical for the Galaxy Z Fold series to fill that spot this year, given that there will be no Note.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 cost $999 / £949 last year, so we could see similar pricing this year. In comparison, the Z Flip 5G costs $1,380 / £1,300. Therefore, the Flip 3 is significantly cheaper. That tendency might continue, making the Z Flip 4 even more inexpensive. Indeed, one rumor implies that a price decrease is on the way and that Samsung plans to sell many of these phones, implying reasonable pricing.

Except for the cover display, the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hasn’t altered much since its first release. Also, we’ll be saying the same thing next year. The overall dimensions may be minor changes and possibly a slightly larger outside display. However, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will look identical to the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

This is effectively demonstrated through a series of renderings. The Z Flip 4 will reportedly have the same size and form as the Z Flip 3. However, with bigger exterior display size. One source claims that the seam in the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s display will be significantly less noticeable, addressing one of the most common concerns concerning foldable phones.

According to the source, the primary screen will also have the same size at 6.7 inches. Although the Z Flip 4 will be significantly thicker than its forerunner, measuring 165.1 x 71.9 x 7.2mm when unfurled. We’ve also heard that the hinge and crease engineering will be upgraded for a more smaller and seamless design. Another report claims a new, lighter hinge and the same screen size as the Z Flip 3. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 received IPX8 water resistance. However, the same leaker claims enhancements. We can only guess that it alludes to the Flip 3’s lack of dust proofing.

There has been some speculation that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 would have a more prominent cover display, with reports claiming it will be at least 2-inches. When opened, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 sports a 1.9-inch cover screen and a 6.7-inch central screen. However, speculations have not yet provided any specifics regarding resolution and other characteristics. The primary screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a Full HD+ quality, which we would anticipate from the Z Flip 4.

There have also been rumors that Samsung is developing an under-display camera for the Z Flip 4, yet nothing has been confirmed. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 does have a UPC, but it’s not great, so we’d want to see some changes before it appears on the Z Flip 4.

As previously said, the revised hinge appears to have reduced the visibility of the screen crease. According to Ice Universe, the new crease is “far shallower,” making it less noticeable and challenging to feel while swiping.

Specifications & Features

The Z Flip 3’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 CPU might be upgraded to the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. However, it appears that the Flip 4 will employ the forthcoming 8 Gen 1+, as anticipated by various leakers. More importantly, we’ve seen that chip emerge in the leaker listing for the Flip 4. This is known by its motherboard codename ‘taro.’

The 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB storage options are expected to stay, while other source forecasts the introduction of a new 512GB storage option – a welcome addition given the lack of a MicroSD card slot on the Z Flip 3. According to other sources, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will retain an accurate fingerprint scanner within the power switch rather than opt for an under-display option this time.

Early this year, the first information regarding the Flip4 began to emerge. While the Galaxy Z Fold4 may include a built-in S Pen, such as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, it does not appear that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will. The previous Z Flip 3 does not accept Samsung’s add-on S Pen Pro. Thus, the Flip4 is unlikely to be appealing to pen lovers.

So yet, no rumors have surfaced regarding the cameras included on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. On the exterior, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G has a dual camera with two 12MP sensors. One is a wide-angle camera with an f/1.8 aperture, and the other is a highly wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture.

There has been a Galaxy Z Flip 4 patent that featured a rotating camera in the hinge – it’s a creative idea, but one that Samsung is unlikely to execute considering how ‘out-there’ it is. Samsung will add an under-display selfie camera, albeit numerous prototypes are in the works, some of which still have a punch-hole camera opening. This means that Samsung is still evaluating the capabilities of the previous technique to see whether it is ready for prime time.

We anticipate the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 to provide at least the same features as its predecessor, but we also expect some enhancements, whether in hardware, software, or both.

Battery Life

In terms of battery, one rumor is that it will be 3,400mAh instead of the 3,300mAh of the Flip 3. However, a recent rumor suggests a 3,700mAh battery, which would significantly boost. Similarly, we’ve heard that the Z Flip 4 would have a 10-20% bigger battery than its predecessor.

Some of us, however, like using our high-priced cellphones and hence require a battery life that lasts a whole day. So we’d want to see the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 have better battery life. So we can use it without worrying about it running out of charge. The regular leaker, is even more confident about the battery, forecasting a more significant bump to a total capacity of 3700mAh, which Brar has now confirmed.

Wireless charging is also anticipated to return at the same slow 10W rate as previously. Because it is very early in the development process, many of these features may change.

Is Samsung coming out with a new flip phone?

Last August, Samsung released the Galaxy Z Flip 3 alongside the Z Fold 3, and it’s predicted that the Flip 4 will be shown alongside the Z Fold 4 this time.

Which is better, Z flip or Z Flip 3?

The Samsung Z Flip 3 and the Samsung Z Flip offer twin 12MP primary cameras and a 10MP front-facing camera for great selfies. The Samsung Z Flip3, on the other hand, is a substantial advance over the Samsung Z Flip, thanks to its bigger front cover screen.


Samsung made considerable advances in increasing the durability of its last set of foldable. We’ve heard Galaxy Z Flip 3 devices fail after only a few months of ownership. While we can’t confirm these allegations with it’s nonetheless troubling to hear of phones not lasting a year. Foldables have a bit of a way to go in this regard as well.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4’s durability and lifespan would ideally increase more. Nobody wants to spend $999 on the phone only to have it malfunction or become useless within a year, much alone a few months.
