Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4: Hands-on photos of upcoming foldable and its two batteries leak
More details about the Galaxy Z Flip4 have leaked online, over two months before the device's anticipated announcement. On the one hand, TechTalkTV has revealed several hands-on images of a prototype unit, pictured below. While it is unclear at what stage of development the prototype is, it is at least a functional unit that has Samsung's typical confidentiality sticker on it.
As expected, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 prototype features the same design as the outgoing Galaxy Z Flip3. Hence, the Galaxy Z Flip4 has three cameras, a small cover display and a chassis that does not fold flush. Overall, the Galaxy Z Flip4 is a refinement of the Galaxy Z Flip3, which Motorola is rumoured to have borrowed from with the Razr 3. Seemingly, the Galaxy Z Flip4 has a thinner display hinge than its predecessor though, along with a larger cover display that is believed to span 2.1-inches.
The now private video suggests that Samsung has reduced the display crease's visibility with the Galaxy Z Flip4. However, we would recommend waiting for independent reviews of retail units to arrive before drawing any judgements on that one.
On the other hand, SamMobile has discovered hands-on photos of the two batteries that will be powering the Galaxy Z Flip4. Shown below, the larger of the two batteries has a 2,555 mAh rated capacity, which Samsung has paired with a secondary 1,040 mAh cell. Although their rated capacities equal 3,595 mAh, Samsung will advertise their combined typical capacities, which amount to 3,700 mAh.
In other words, the Galaxy Z Flip4 will have the same typical battery capacity as the Galaxy S22, albeit with two displays. Still, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 powering the Galaxy Z Flip4 should provide better power efficiency than either the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or the Exynos 2200 in the Galaxy S22 manage. Currently, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Flip4 on August 26 at a dedicated Galaxy Unpacked event, where it should also reveal the Galaxy Z Fold4 and the Galaxy Watch5 series.
