Samsung has already unveiled the flagship Galaxy S22 range as well as the more cheap Galaxy S21 FE, but more intriguing devices are expected in 2022. The foldable Galaxy Z Flip 4 is one of them (and Galaxy Z Fold 4).

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 are both foldable phones, however they differ in several aspects. The main distinction is that the Z Fold bends like a book, whereas the Z Flip folds vertically. 

We’re compiling all of the rumors about the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s release date, pricing, new features, and specifications, and we’ll keep this post updated as more information becomes available. So far, here’s what we’ve heard. Please keep in mind that while these are rumors, Samsung has not verified any of the specifications.

It’s possible that the film will be released in August or September.

There are no valid speculations about the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s release date.However, based on the history of the foldable phone (and its Galaxy Z Fold sister), we can estimate when the new handset will be released.

The initial Galaxy Z Flip was unveiled in February 2020, and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 was released in August 2021, therefore there doesn’t appear to be a pattern to the Galaxy Z Flip’s releases. With the Galaxy Z Fold, Samsung appears to have softened the device, which is why the Z Flip was renamed from version 1 to 3 to match the Z Fold’s naming conventions.

The 2019 Galaxy Fold and 2020 Z Fold 2 were revealed in September, with the Z Fold 3 set to arrive in August 2021. If Samsung plans to release the phones together, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will most likely be released in August or September with the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Could Be Less Expensive

We also haven’t heard anything about the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s likely pricing. However, we might get some clues from reports concerning the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

The upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be less priced than the Z Fold 3, according to Korean leaker yeux1122. Despite the fact that the tipster did not supply any other information, that guess is consistent with the phone’s pricing history. In comparison to the Fold 2 ($2,000), the Galaxy Z Fold 3 ($1,800) has been reduced in pricing. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was cut in price to $1,000 from $1,380 for the original Z Flip last year.

Design: A larger cover screen and a display that can be extended

According to rumors, Samsung will make a few minor changes to the display on the next Galaxy Z Flip 4, rather than a major overhaul. 

The cover screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is four times larger than the original Z Flip’s, and Holland praised the change as a “step in the right direction.” Reading alerts and swiping widgets would be a little simpler with a slightly larger cover screen.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 might get more than just a new cover screen, according to a patent Samsung submitted with the World Intellectual Property Office. The patent, which was first revealed in March by Dutch site LetsGoDigital, depicts a Galaxy Z Flip with a foldable and extended screen that can be pushed out to produce a display that is twice as large.

Rotating Lenses in Cameras?

The camera hardware of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 was not upgraded, although the future Z Flip 4 might bring some upgrades. According to reports, the upcoming foldable phone would include a rotating camera and a superior under-display camera.

As LetsGoDigital revealed in July, Samsung submitted another patent application with the World Intellectual Property Office for a clamshell phone featuring a revolving camera. The foldable’s camera, which is housed on the hinge, has two lenses and can rotate to be utilized while the phone is closed, open, or at many angles in between. This implies the camera might be used to snap selfies and other types of photos.

While a one-size-fits-all camera may sound appealing, it might result in the foldable’s hinge being substantially larger, making the phone itself larger and thicker.

Samsung has tested variants of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with an upgraded under-display camera that can also be utilized on the cover screen, according to speculations from Korean leaker yeux1122. However, it is also rumored that the company has tested phone models with a perforated, punch-hole cutout display.
