Specifications

The Galaxy Z Flip4 features some impressive hardware specs. It draws power from an upgraded Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which is currently the most powerful chipset you can find on an Android device. The chipset is paired with the same 8GB RAM. Storage options include 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

On the software front, the phone runs Android 12 with One UI 4.1 on top. The device is expected to receive an Android 13-based One UI 5 update very soon. The update policy on the device is also pretty solid. Samsung claims the Flip 4 will receive 4 years of major updates and 5 years of security updates, that’s more than what any other OEM offers.

The device is carrying decent upgrades in terms of battery. It packs a larger 3700mAh battery. For reference, the Flip3 had a 3300mAh battery. The Galaxy Z Flip4 supports 25W wired charging, as well as Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and reverse wireless charging.

Camera

The Galaxy Z Flip4 houses a dual camera setup on the back. The main camera is 12-megapixel with 1.8µm pixels and OIS. The main sensor is accompanied by a second 12-megapixel sensor with a 123-degree field of view. The camera department is the same as the Galaxy Z Flip3, however, Samsung claims that the main camera can click 65% brighter images. On the front, the device has a 10-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls.

The primary camera can now snap photos in normal and portrait mode in low light thanks to Samsung’s Super Night Solution technology. The Galaxy Z Flip4’s AI lighting and stabilization capabilities have also been improved, which should make photography and videography on the new Flip substantially better.
