Although we are still definitely several months away from The next big Unpacked product launch event from Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone maker, doesn’t seem to have done a much better job than usual of keeping the party’s stars under wraps.
Of course, you can never be 100 percent sure of anything related to an unreleased device like the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 until their makers actually make a formal announcement, but those recently leaked renders and a newly revealed benchmark clearly falls into the “99.9 percent confirmed” category.
Yes, boys and girls, today we finally have the (unofficial) confirmation of one of the The most significant updates to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 over its predecessor, as well as one key advantage the next-gen foldable flagship is expected to have over all best phones available right now, Galaxy S22 Ultra included.
So much… a lot… brute… speed
Compared to the model number SM-F721U, the ultra-high-end phone we’re looking at today is surely the Z Flip 4, following in the footsteps of the SM-F711, also known as the Z Flip 3. Just like the actual phone it’s powering, the SM-F721U “motherboard” lurks under a seemingly cryptic “taro” codename, though it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out exactly which processor we’re dealing with here.
With its octa-core CPU made up of a quad cluster clocked at 1.8 GHz, three 2.75 GHz cores, and a final single 3.19 GHz core, this ARM-based bad boy is clearly aiming to upgrade the configuration. 1.7 + 2.4 + 3 GHz from Qualcomm. Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is found inside the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra.
Naturally, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is practically guaranteed to share this cutting-edge silicon with its Primo Z Fold 4, similar to how last year’s Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 came with the same processor. But that was the “regular” Snapdragon 888 rather than the Plus version, which matched the S21 family spec.
While we can’t trust Geekbench scores to give an accurate picture of a phone’s actual performance (especially when it comes to Galaxy devices), Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is widely rumored to bring significant improvements to the table compared to the non-Plus processor, partly thanks to the aforementioned CPU clock speeds and partly due to a TSMC replaces Samsung itself as the chipmaker.
All other Galaxy Z Flip 4 specs in one place
By no means surprising, today’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus “confirmation” is joined by some even less surprising data, including Android 12 and the same amount of 8GB RAM used in the Z Flip 3 for cost savings compared to 12 gig memory pack Z-fold 3.
Of course, the Z Flip 4’s display, battery, and camera information remains up in the air… if you choose to rely solely on this pre-release performance evaluation, with numerous credible reports and leaks over the past few months, no However, it leaves very few questions. unanswered.
Basically, we already know that the design of the Z Flip 3 won’t change much, with the Z Flip 4 gaining just a bit of girth to accommodate a Considerably larger 3700mAh battery than last year’s 3300mAh cell. Both the 6.7-inch main screen and the 1.9-inch secondary screen are not likely to change much, and unless Samsung reconsiders at the last minute, any kind of S Pen support seems out of the question.
Super UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass) technology bent to It is also unlikely that bolstering the Z Fold 4’s durability will be integrated into the Z Flip 4, which may not get any results. big camera upgrades either. All of that sounds a bit underwhelming, which makes improving processing power that much more crucial to the overall success of this device, especially if a (somewhat vague) rumor about a lower price than the Z Flip 3 ends up materializing.
