Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 features a better camera and battery

On the specs front, the changes are minimum. But the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is still a fashion statement.

Samsung held its Unpacked event today to show off its latest foldable smartphones, including the new Galaxy Z Flip 4. The phone is now available for preorders, starting from $999. Shipping and wider availability start August 26.

So, does the Galaxy Z Flip 4 match the leaks? How different is it from the Z Flip 3?

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 hasn’t changed much from the prior model. The screen is still 6.7 inches diagonally and has a 120Hz refresh rate, featuring Samsung’s OLED screen.

The 1.9-inch cover screen now has a SmartThings widget, so you can use it for smart home control. It’s also got quick reply functionality and access to Samsung Wallet. You can also use it as a selfie screen, which is always cool.

The main camera is now using a bigger sensor. That means better image quality, especially in low-light conditions.

The other improvements include the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor and increased battery size to 3,700 mAh. Samsung also made the rails out of aluminum, the hinge is flatter, and it just feels more refined than last year’s Flip 3.
