Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4: price, technical sheet, release date, news, all to know

Samsung is about to unveil its new folding smartphones for 2022, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. A lot of information has already come out about it: here is everything you need to know.

Of all the foldable smartphones now available around the world, the Galaxy Z Flip are the most popular. Who would have thought, when we thought that the possibility of extending the screen to make our smartphones a mini tablet was the flagship feature of foldable screens! And yet: the style and compactness of the Galaxy Z Flip have made them successful, in addition to their financial accessibility. The new model is coming very soon: the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Here is all information known to date concerning him.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 release date

Samsung is preparing its big annual conference, the Samsung Unpacked. The latter will take place on August 10, 2022, and will be broadcast live on its social networks. For the occasion, we already know that many new Samsung products will be presented. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be part of it, that’s for sure.

As for its actual release date, leaker Jon Prosser revealed in advance that the latter would be officially released. next august 26. Pre-orders would be available as soon as the Unpacked event ends, i.e. August 10. It would be available in 4 different colors, which we present to you below.

How much will the Galaxy Z Flip 4 cost?

At the moment, we don’t have a specific clear source on the price of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, especially in Europe. However, the smartphone was rumored to be sold even cheaper than its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which was available when it was released for 1059 euros.

Will we go below the symbolic bar of 1000 euros? If the shortage of components is obviously a problem, Samsung can favor itself since it is the number 1 producer on the market. What’s more, as foldable smartphones become more and more popular, production costs are lowered since a larger number of panels promotes economies of scale.

Last but not least, Samsung is no longer alone in this market. Vivo, Oppo, Huawei and many others are now on the attack, making the Korean manufacturer to be more competitive. Lowering its most popular model below 1000 euros could be a big blow to its competitors.

Alas, it seems that is not the case. Respected leaker OnLeaks said that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 would be released with a starting price of 1109 euros. This information remains to be confirmed.

What design will the Galaxy Z Flip 4 have?

The design of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 should not change drastically compared to its predecessor… At least, to the naked eye. The most notable element would be a slightly larger external screen, which would increase to 2.1 inches compared to 1.9 inches on the previous model.

Above all, Samsung would have reworked the design of its hinge according to Ice Universe. Thus, it could be more resistant while being thinner than that integrated into the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The brand would take advantage of this to offer a slightly thinner smartphone this year, although the main lines of the range are still retained. The fold would be much more discreet from now on. We also have the 4 colors plannedto see black, rose gold, blue and mauve.

Alas, for those who do not appreciate the spacing between the two parts of the phone when it is folded, it seems that nothing has changed on this point. While Samsung’s competitors have managed to totally flatten their smartphones, Samsung would continue to produce foldable devices that don’t fold flat. It’s a shame, especially since lint and other dust tend to accumulate there very easily.

Galaxy Z Flip 4 specs

The great novelty planned for the new Galaxy Flips, including the Galaxy Z Flip 4 of course, is the integration of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. This is the latest high-end SoC from the American giant, which offers the best performance on the Android market today.

This chip has two advantages. It is not only more powerful than the simple Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but also avoids heating problems. An important fact for a foldable smartphone, which is not as protected as a more traditional smartphone can be. On the RAM side, we should be able to count on 12 GB of LPDDR5 for the first price, and 16 GB for the highest configurations.

But it is perhaps on autonomy that the best surprise awaits us. According to Ice Universe, well known for its information on Samsung products, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 would integrate this year a 3700 mAh battery. For comparison, the Z Flip 3 only integrated 3300 mAh, and was not really considered a champion of autonomy. Such a leap forward should hold some excellent surprises.

Galaxy Z Flip 4 Camera

From the photo, we know that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will continue to only integrate two sensors on the back of the phone. We don’t have much information on these, but it could be that the configuration does not change this year.

It’s a shame, since some rumors seemed to indicate that Samsung was working on a new generation of photo sensor integrated under the screen, whose performance would have been sufficient to offer very good photo quality while freeing up the screen. Alas, it seems that the manufacturer’s plans have finally changed; it will probably be necessary to wait for a fifth device before seeing this new technology arrive.

Name change for the Galaxy Z Flip 4?

And yes: the Galaxy Z Flip 4 might not be called the Galaxy Z Flip 4, but simply the Flip 4. It has been rumored for a long time that the manufacturer is abandoning its “Z”, but this has been reinforced recently with the events taking place in Ukraine. The Russian government using the letter Z as part of its campaign, the Korean manufacturer would have decided to abandon the letter altogether.

It must be said that since the advent of these smartphones, this letter has never really been used. We speak much more easily of the “Flip 3” and the “Fold 3” than of the “Z Fold and Z Flip”. This change would not be a great loss; Samsung has even already started to remove the Z from its online store in some countries, but France is not (yet) affected.
