(Pocket-lint) – Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 4 alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro at an event on 10 August.
We covered how the Galaxy Z Fold 4 should compare to the Z Fold 3 in a separate article, but here we take a look at how the Z Flip 4 might compare to its predecessor, the Z Flip 3.
If you’re wondering if the upgrade is worth it or which foldable phone you should buy, here’s a rundown of the Z Flip 4’s specs compared to the Z Flip 3.
Z Flip 4 design compared to Z Flip 3
- Z Flip 3: 86.4 x 72.2 x 15.9-17.1mm folded, 166 x 72.2 x 6.9mm unfolded, 183g, IPX8
- Z Flip 4: to be confirmed
The Samsung Galaxy Flip’s design has remained largely the same since its launch, with a few minor tweaks here and there. The Z Flip 3 brought a larger cover display to the foldable device and rumors suggest the Z Flip 4 could see that increase continue.
Other differences would come in the form of squarer, flatter edges, more prominent buttons, slightly more protruding camera lenses, and a redesigned hinge. Otherwise, it looks like the design will be similar to the Z Flip 3, which isn’t a bad thing.
The colors on offer for the Z Flip 4 are Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Blue, but Samsung is also expected to offer the Bespoke Edition option, which offers plenty of customization options.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is available in Cream, Lavender, Phantom Black, and Green. It is also offered as a custom edition option.
Z Flip 4 and Z Flip 3 display
- Z Flip 4: 6.7-inch main screen, Full HD+, 120Hz refresh rate, 2-inch flip?
- Z Flip 3: 6.7-inch main display, Full HD+, 120Hz refresh rate, 1.9-inch flip (260 x 512).
As we briefly mentioned, it has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will offer a larger cover screen than its predecessor. Reports suggest that the Z Flip 4 will have at least a 2-inch cover screen compared to the Z Flip 3’s 1.9-inch screen.
When unfolded, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a 6.7-inch main display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, and there’s no suggestion that this will change with the Z Flip 4.
The only rumor that could affect things is that the Z Flip 4 adopts an under-display camera, like the Z Fold 3. If true, it would mean that the Z Flip 4 has an uninterrupted screen compared to the Z Flip 3 which It has a central hole-punch camera at the top of its main screen.
Z Flip 4 and Z Flip 3 Hardware and Specifications
- Z Flip 4: Qualcomm SD 8+ Gen 1, 8GB RAM, up to 512GB storage, 3700mAh battery?
- Z Flip 3: Qualcomm SD888, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, 3300mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is rumored to run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and reports suggest it will offer 8GB of RAM. The Z Flip 3, by comparison, runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform with 8GB of RAM, so there’s definitely an upgrade in that department.
As for storage, the Z Flip 4 is expected to come in 128 and 256GB models like the Z Flip 3, but it has been suggested that the Z Flip 4 will also come in a 512GB option, which would be a first for this device.
Battery capacity is also expected to increase for the Z Flip 4, from 3,300 mAh to 3,700 mAh for the Z Flip 3.
As for other hardware, reports suggest the Z Flip 4 will retain a physical fingerprint sensor on the side power button, like the Z Flip 3, instead opting for an under-display option.
Z Flip 4 and Z Flip 3 cameras
- Z Flip 4: dual rear camera
- Z Flip 3: Dual rear camera (12MP main + 12MP ultra wide), 10MP selfie
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G sports a dual camera on the outside with two 12-megapixel sensors, one of which is a wide-angle lens with an f/1.8 aperture and the other an ultra-wide-angle lens with an f/2.2. opening.
There’s also a 10-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.4 aperture.
So far, no rumor has indicated whether or not the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will bring any changes in this section, although we would expect some improvements, even if it is at the software level rather than drastic changes at the hardware level. Based on the leaked renders, it appears that the Z Flip 4 will continue to offer dual rear cameras.
Based on rumours, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will offer internal upgrades rather than design upgrades. We’re expecting a similar, if perhaps more refined, design, and it looks like the processor and battery will be upgraded.
It remains to be seen if the Z Flip 4 will opt for an under-display camera, a larger cover display, and camera upgrades as well, but we’ll update this feature as soon as we get all the official details.
