What will the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 be like?
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will not arrive with a radical design change. The company, instead, will bet on keeping the same line that it introduced in the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but with some other improvements to make this a more current smartphone. One of these changes we will see in the aluminum frames, which will have a flatter shape, instead of being slightly rounded.
some images recently leakedIn addition, they show in great detail the appearance of this next folding smartphone, which will maintain exactly the same format as its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 3. That is, it will be a folding “clamshell”, as your screen will be folded vertically. This will allow the Galaxy Z Flip 4 to take up considerably less space when folded.
The leaked images also reveal the external screen, which It will grow slightly compared to the previous version. This panel, remember, allows you to view notifications, the time or even establish widgets with direct access to different system applications.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, on the other hand, will keep a USB C port at the bottom and a camera directly on the screen in its flexible panel. It does not seem that Samsung includes the sensor under the panelas it happens in the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Regarding the colors, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could arrive in a purple tone, a gold color, a classic black and a kind of bluish.
The processor of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Samsung’s strategy with its high-end mobile processors is somewhat interesting. The company, specifically, bet on two different SoC models depending on the market. In Europe, for example, they use Exynos, their own chips, while in the United States they bet on Qualcomm. After all, both processors offer excellent performance and there are hardly any differences between them. But what will happen to the Galaxy Z Flip 4?
In this case, Samsung usually bets on Qualcomm in all markets, including Europe. Therefore, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is expected to have the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, a vitaminized version of the 8 Gen. 1 that the American firm announced a few months ago. The ‘Plus’, in fact, offers a CPU 10% faster than the previous one, as well as a GPU with a 30% improvement in its consumption. It is therefore more efficient than its predecessor.
In addition, a base configuration of 8GB RAMas well as 256 GB of internal memory. Samsung could also market other variants with more storage.
Improvements in screen and autonomy
As we mentioned in the design section, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will maintain the same folding smartphone format. It is expected that this will have AMOLED technology and be 6.7 inches. It will also arrive with Full HD + resolution, and most likely with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The panel will have minimal frames and a hole in the upper area, to house the camera for selfies.
This, however, will not be the only screen that includes the terminal. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will also feature a 2.1 inch small outer panelwhich can be useful to display notifications or relevant information, such as the time or weather.
Regarding autonomy, rumors suggest that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will have a 3700mAh battery; a higher capacity compared to the 3300 mAh included in the battery of its predecessor, the Galaxy Z FLip 3. This, added to the greater optimization of the processor, can bring better battery life.
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will feature fast charging, probably with a power of 25 W, according to rumours. The terminal will also be compatible with wireless charging. However, Samsung is not expected to include the power adapter in the box.
What about your cameras?
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has never been a smartphone destined to compete in camera. At least, not like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra or the rest of the Galaxy S series smartphones. The company, however, does not neglect this area, and includes not only powerful sensors, but also functions that make the photographic section even more versatile.
Regarding the configuration, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to include a dual main camera, with a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor and an ultra-wide-angle camera of the same resolution. The front camera, on the other hand, could be 10 megapixels.
Beyond the lenses, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will also feature different capture modes that are possible thanks to its folding screen and, therefore, to the different positions in which we can place the device. The fact that it can be bent at different angles allows, for example, to use the lower base as a support to take photos without the need for someone to hold the terminal.
That the smartphone has a small screen on the back, also serves to being able to preview what the rear cameras are going to capture, so the user can take selfies using these lenses and, therefore, achieve higher quality results in front of the front camera.
Will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 have S Pen?
The S Pen It is, without a doubt, one of the best Samsung accessories. It allows you to write notes, draw or select any element on the screen in a much more precise way, in addition to allowing different extra functions to improve the user experience with the terminal. Samsung, until a few years ago, only included it in the Galaxy Note, but the death of this family served to include it as an additional accessory in the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and as an accessory available together with the Samsung Galaxy S22.
In the company brochures, only the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is compatible with the S PenAnd it is likely that this year will continue to be the case, as there is no indication that the company will add this accessory to its folding clamshell. In fact, the leaked images do not show any hole for the mentioned stylus.
How much will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 cost?
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is still unknown. Nevertheless, it is likely to be around 1,060 euroswhich is the starting price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
However, we must take into account some factors, such as the increase in the price of components due to inflation and problems in the supply chain, or the increase in new features compared to its predecessor. This could increase the cost of the terminal. So, It would not be strange to see the Galaxy Z Flip 4 announced for 1,100 euros or even more.
This will be the presentation date of the new Samsung folding
When will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 be presented? Samsung has confirmed that the launch of this folding smartphone will take place on August 10. The company, in particular, will celebrate its characteristic launch event: those known as Galaxy Unpacked.
In addition to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung could also announce the Galaxy Z Fold 4, as well as new smartwatches, tablets, and other gadgets.
