It seems that the Galaxy Z Flip4 will offer significantly better battery life than its predecessor. Not only will Samsung's next-generation foldable rely on the more efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform, but the CCC in China also appears to have confirmed a notable uplift in battery capacity from the Galaxy Z Flip3.

MyFixGuide has discovered concrete details about the Galaxy Z Flip4's battery capacity. To recap, GalaxyClub previously claimed that Samsung would equip the Galaxy Z Flip4 with the EB-BF721ABY and EB-BF722ABY, two batteries that would yield a 3,400 mAh typical combined capacity. Considering that the Galaxy Z Flip3 struggled in our battery life tests with 3,300 mAh, 3,400 mAh would be a modest upgrade, to say the least.

Subsequently, Ice Universe disputed GalaxyClub's claim. Instead, the leaker asserted that the Galaxy Z Flip4 would launch with 3,700 mAh of battery capacity, matching the Galaxy S22. Now, MyFixGuide has noticed that Samsung has certified the EB-BF723ABY and EB-BF724ABY with the CCC in China. As the screenshot below shows, these batteries offer 2,555 mAh and 1,040 mAh capacities, respectively, or 3,595 mAh combined.

Presumably, that value represents their rated capacities, not their typical capacities. As 9to5Google notes, Samsung is likely to launch the Galaxy Z Flip4 with a 3,700 mAh advertised capacity, a significant upgrade from the Galaxy Z Flip3. Additionally, Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy Z Flip4 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, which should provide reduced power consumption compared to the Snapdragon 888, if the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is anything to go by. Samsung is rumoured to have earmarked an autumn release for the Galaxy Z Flip4, which should debut alongside the Galaxy Fold4.
