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.
