Just hours after we got our first look at Samsung’s potential Z Fold 4 design, unofficial renders of its little sibling – the Z Flip 4 – have also leaked via 91Mobiles and OnLeaks. But while the next Fold might have a redesigned camera bump, the Z Flip 4’s design looks nearly identical to its predecessor. On the outside it still has a two-tone color scheme with a pair of cameras and a small notification screen, while inside there’s still a foldable 6.7-inch screen with a punch-hole selfie cutout. top middle.
This isn’t necessarily a big surprise, nor is it definitely a bad thing. Samsung followed up its first Z Flip with the nearly identical Z Flip 5G a few months later, so it’s already proven that it’s happy to update the insides of its foldables without changing their outward appearance. And since we were pretty impressed with last year’s Z Flip 3 (“the first foldable phone for normal people”), an immediate design overhaul doesn’t seem essential, though we wouldn’t say no to a screen. outer slightly larger.
If Samsung expects its next Z Flip to be a spec bump, we hope its specs get a decent boost. The rear cameras need the most improvement, both of which were 12-megapixels last seen at a time when Samsung’s relatively high-priced Galaxy S flagship devices are getting 50-megapixel-plus primary sensors. Expect an official announcement in August, if Samsung follows the same schedule as last year.
