Samsung's Z Flip line is the most popular foldable lineup ever which is responsible for most of the company’s foldable phone sales.
Samsung is, of course, working on a new Z Flip phone and today we have some exclusive hands-on images and video of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 as well as information about its battery life, camera, and more.
At first glance, you would say it looks identical to its predecessor, which for the most part is true but there are some changes, though.
The first one is of course the crease. We've been hearing about the Flip 4 getting a shallower crease and turns out the rumors were indeed true.
It looks much better than the one on the Flip 3. The bezels look marginally thinner too, more like hairline thinner.
The size of the hole cutout for the front camera remains unchanged and keep in mind that since the frame of the phone here is black, it is adding to the overall thickness of the black bezels. It would appear thinner if the frame is not black.
Moving on, another big change is the size of the hinge. As you can see it looks significantly thinner than the Flip 3 adding to the overall aesthetics of the phone.
By the way, there’s still a visible gap in the hinge when the phone is closed which I don't think is a big deal because with my usage of the Z Fold 3 so far, I haven't had any issue with dust collecting from the pocket into the display.
The cover screen is also marginally bigger this time but unless you compare it side by side, I don't think you're going to even notice.
The fingerprint scanner is still at the side and the number of cameras also remains unchanged.
The cameras perform similar to the Flip 3 which means it will sport the same 12MP main + 12MP ultra-wide camera configuration on the back with a 10MP front-facing selfie camera.
Now coming to the battery life, the phone has performed great so far as the battery life is concerned, and this is likely the result of two things, a bigger battery, and a more efficient chipset.
The Z Flip 4 will have the same battery as the S22 which is 3700mAh and the charging speed has been increased as well to 25W from 15W on its predecessor which is certainly a welcome upgrade there.
Battery life has always been a problem for Flip users but that will not be the case with the Z Flip 4.
