Galaxy Z Flip 4 Rumors: It May Do More Than Fold


Samsung already showed off its flagship Galaxy S22 line and affordable Galaxy S21 FE, but more exciting phones are likely on the way in 2022. This includes the foldable Galaxy Z Flip 4 (and Galaxy Z Fold 4).

Although The Galaxy Z Flip and Fold 4 are both foldable phones, they differ in many ways. The most noticeable difference is that the Z Fold bends like a book, while the Z Flip folds vertically. Last year’s Z Flip 3 was dubbed the “most normal foldable available,” by CNET’s Patrick Holland and the upcoming Z Flip 4 will probably bring some welcome upgrades and refinements.

The 2019 Galaxy Fold and 2020 Z Fold 2 were released in September, while the Z Fold 3 debuted in August 2021. If Samsung plans on releasing the phones as a pair, we can likely expect the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in August or September alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

Rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4’s display suggest Samsung’s making a few small tweaks rather than large sweeping upgrades. According to Korean news site The Elec, the Z Flip 4 will retain the 6.7-inch internal foldable display of the Z Flip 3, but the external cover screen will slightly increase from 1.83 to 1.9-inches.
