LATEST GALAXY Z FOLD 4 NEWS
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, was one of Samsung’s best foldable phones yet. It brought meaningful improvements with features like water resistance and support for the S Pen.
Samsung fans have high expectations from the Galaxy Z Fold 4. They expect improved cameras, better displays, more powerful internals and an S Pen that can be stored inside the device itself.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 design may not be that different compared to its predecessor. However, the company is expected to make some minor improvements in this department. There have been reports that the device will have an internal slot to store the S Pen. That’s going to require some tweaks to the design.
Samsung will likely retain the IPX8 water resistance certification for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 that it introduced with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. It would be good to see the device picking up certification for dust resistance as well but that hasn’t been rumored yet.
There haven’t been a lot of rumors or news so far about a change in display size for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. As it stands, we can expect the device to have a 6.2-inch Infinity-O cover display. The internal 7.6-inch foldable display could get further durability improvements.
Even if it doesn’t store the S Pen inside it, the device will certainly support it. Samsung is reportedly going to introduce a Super UTG panel that will deliver a much improved S Pen experience.
Word on the street is that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature Qualcomm’s as-yet-unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor. Much like its predecessor, the chipset may be paired with 12GB of RAM with up to 512GB of onboard storage. We may not see the return of the microSD card slot for external expansion.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 isn’t expected to get an in-display fingerprint sensor. It might just be mounted on the home button like last time. The device is also likely going to have stereo speakers.
Samsung fans are definitely hoping for a battery larger than the 4,400mAh one found in the Galaxy Z Fold 3. An upgrade to 45W charging speeds will also be a welcome addition.
The camera setup of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 wasn’t as great as it could have been. A much more capable setup is at the top of the wishlist for many Samsung fans who are waiting for the company’s next high-end flagship phone. It’s not known at this point in time precisely which sensors will make up this new camera setup.
There’s a chance that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will come with Android 12 out of the box. While fans hope that it stops releasing its second wave of flagships with outdated Android, that may not change this yet.
A new iteration of One UI may ship with the device with additional enhancements for the foldable form factor. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 will most definitely be on the list of Samsung phones that get four Android OS upgrades.
Price and Availability
Expect Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the second half of this year. There’s no expectation of a price cut as yet. If Samsung decides to maintain status quo, then the Galaxy Z Fold 3 may cost the same $1,799 as the model before it.
