Galaxy Z Flip 4 carrier and unlocked variants have passed through the FCC


Last updated: July 13th, 2022 at 14:41 UTC+02:00

Samsung plans to release (at least) two foldable devices later this year, i.e., the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. The former device passed through the FCC late last week, and the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is now following on the same path.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 carrying model numbers SM-F721U and SM-F721U1 got approved by the FCC this week. According to the model numbers, these are the Galaxy Z Flip 4 carrier and unlocked variants destined for the United States.

Samsung’s upcoming flip phone should be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chipset. This detail isn’t mentioned in the FCC documents; however, an early benchmark entry revealed the choice of chipset a couple of months ago.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the most successful foldable phone on the market, Samsung or otherwise. And according to rumors, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 won’t be much different in terms of design. The South Korean giant has seemingly adopted the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy for its clamshell foldable phone.

Nevertheless, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 should bring some hardware improvements and could become Korea’s first eSIM phone, along with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. And like the Z Flip 3, the upcoming model will get a Bespoke Edition with dozens of color combinations in select markets.

Samsung is keeping quiet about the next Unpacked event, but leaks and rumors suggest that the upcoming foldable phones will be unveiled on August 10 and go on sale a couple of weeks later.
