Galaxy-Z-Flip-4

Samsung’s latest foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, are now official. At its Unpacked event this morning, Samsung announced that both devices will be available later this month on August 26, starting at $999 for the Flip 4 and $1799 for the Fold 4. Pre-orders are live beginning today.

Both devices are peppered with upgrades, though, from a macro view buyers may not see too many differences between this year’s lineup and the previous generation. Allow us to fill you in on everything that’s different in 2022.

Spec highlights for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 include a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 1Hz to 120Hz, 1.9-inch Super AMOLED front cover display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB RAM, up to 512GB storage, 3,700mAh battery, side-mounted fingerprint reader, dual 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras (ultra wide + wide angle with OIS and Dual Pixel AF), IPX8 rating, and Android 12 with One UI 4.1.1.

On the spec sheet, there really isn’t much difference between the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The only notable difference is the new processor and larger battery, up from last year’s 3,300mAh. On the hardware side, Samsung has incorporated an improved hinge system, allowing for a more compact design. For software, Samsung highlights its already existing Flex Mode, mentioning that it has worked with Meta (Facebook) to ensure Flex Mode works with its suite of apps, including WhatsApp and Instagram. For content creators, Samsung highlights an improved Quick Shot mode for the front cover display, plus a better camera experience featuring a 65% brighter sensor.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was a huge improvement over past iterations. In our eyes, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is simply a refinement of that already fantastic device. It is priced starting at $999 and is available in Bora Purple, Graphite, Pink Gold, and Blue.

Galaxy Z Fold 4


Much like the Z Flip 4, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 can be seen as a somewhat minimal upgrade over last year’s model. It’s a refinement to an already great foldable smart device, and honestly, that’s not a bad thing.

Specs for the Z Fold 4 include 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate, 6.2-inch cover display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 12GB RAM for all storage variants, up to 1TB of internal storage, triple rear camera system (12MP ultra wide + 50MP wide angle + 10MP telephoto), 10-megapixel front cover camera, 4-megapixel under-display camera for the main display, 4,400mAh battery, 25W wired charging, IPX8 rating, side-mounted fingerprint reader, and Android 12L with One UI 4.1.1. This is technically the first device to ship with Android 12L, so that’s something.

Samsung has also incorporated its reworked hinge system into the Galaxy Z Fold 4, making it weigh a bit less and more compact. For software, Samsung is introducing a brand new Taskbar for the UI, making jumping into apps and multiple tasks at once extremely easy. Users can set apps to the Taskbar or even groupings of apps that will open simultaneously in a Multi Window layout when activated. And thanks to additional work with Google, apps such as Chrome and Gmail now support drag-and-drop, allowing users to quickly copy and paste links, photos, and more content from one app to another. And yes, S Pen support is still included, but it remains a separate purchase.

Galaxy Z Fold 4 starts at $1799 and comes in Graygreen, Phantom Black, and Beige.
