Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4: What we know so far


On the 10th of August, Samsung will be officially announcing its new foldable phones, and one of the devices that will be announced is the Galaxy Z Flip 4. While the Galaxy Z Fold was the first foldable from Samsung, it’s safe to say that it’s thanks to the Flip series that really helped Samsung’s foldables take off in a big way.

This is because the Flip series is a lot cheaper than the Fold series, and there’s a nostalgic factor with the flip phone design that makes it so appealing. Also, the fact that these days phones seem to be getting a lot bigger, having a phone that you can fold up to become smaller is something more users are starting to appreciate.

That being said, we’ll have to wait until Samsung’s Unpacked 2022 event to find out more about the phone, but if you can’t wait, here’s a roundup of everything we know about the handset so far. Keep in mind that these are all based on rumors and speculation, so it’s best to take it with a grain of salt.

In terms of design, from what we know so far, the Flip 4 is largely expected to look the same as its predecessor. We would have liked to see something new and different, but to be fair, the Flip 3’s design is already pretty nice, so keeping things the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

We have heard rumors that Samsung is working on a more comprehensive Bespoke Edition that would offer customers around 1,000 different color combinations to choose from. So while the overall design will remain the same, at the very least customers who opt for the Bespoke Edition will be able to customize it to something that’s truly unique to them.

Samsung is also rumored to be making some changes to the hinge of the phone and that the handset could sport better water and dust resistance, but overall the outer appearance of the phone shouldn’t be all that different from the Flip 3.


For the display of the Flip 4, the inner foldable display isn’t expected to change. The Flip 3’s inner display measures 6.7-inches with an FHD+ resolution, and that is expected to be the case for the Flip 4.

The main change in the display would be on the outer display. According to the rumors, the outer display could see a slight increase in size where instead of measuring 1.9-inches, it could be over 2-inches. Exactly how much bigger is unclear, but the rumors are claiming it will be at least 2-inches, if not bigger.

Seeing as how Motorola recently confirmed that its Razr 2022 smartphone has also received an outer display upgrade, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Flip 4 were to receive a similar upgrade as well.


Seeing as how the Flip 4 is launching in the second half of 2022, it’s almost a guarantee that the handset will launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset under the hood. Benchmarks leaked back in June revealed that the Fold 4 would be powered by the chipset, so it stands to reason the Flip 4 could also receive similar hardware.

The RAM is also expected to be at least 8GB, but we wouldn’t mind seeing more, although there doesn’t seem to be any indication that will be the case. In terms of storage, we’re most likely looking at 128GB and 256GB configurations, but once again, seeing larger storage options would be nice. A report back in June suggested that the max storage option for the Flip 4 could be 512GB, so that’s something to look forward to.

As for the battery, the Flip 3 comes with a 3,300mAh battery so it would be great if Samsung were to offer up a larger battery for the Flip 4. Some rumors claim that we could see a jump to 3,700mAh, but once again, we’ll have to wait for the official announcement for confirmation.


Interestingly enough, not much has been said about the cameras on the Flip 4. This would suggest that Samsung won’t be changing much on that front. For context, the Flip 3 has a dual camera setup on the outside with two 12MP sensors, one of which is a wide angle and the other being an ultrawide angle.

This kind of pales in comparison to the company’s Galaxy S22 series which packs more impressive cameras, but then again, the company’s foldables aren’t exactly marketed as being camera beasts. An upgrade would be nice, but considering we’ve heard nothing about a potential upgrade so far, we wouldn’t get our hopes up just yet.

As for the selfie camera, it is expected to remain at 10MP. There have been talks about Samsung maybe going for an under-display camera, but that feels like a bit of a stretch.


On the pricing front, there might be some bad news for would-be customers. This is because the recent rumors have suggested that the price of the Flip 4 could see an increase over its predecessor. Thankfully, it doesn’t appear to be a massive jump, but it is still an increase nonetheless.

This could be chalked up to the current global economic situation where we’re seeing inflation rise quite steeply across the board, so Samsung is most probably trying to cover the increase in costs. It is possible that had the economy been better, the prices would have remained the same.

It is a bit of a bummer seeing as rumors earlier this year actually pegged the phone to be cheaper than the Flip 3, but it is what it is. The good news though is that Samsung is offering customers $200 in Samsung Credit if they were to go ahead and reserve the handset now, so if you’re more or less certain that you will be buying the phone, that’s one way of saving some money.
