As the ‘Galaxyan Pack’, which unveils the next-generation foldable phone Galaxy Z4 series, has been approaching about five days ahead, attention is focused on the evolution of technology and functions of this new product.
The unpack event will be held online and offline (New York) at 10 o’clock (Korea time) and 9 am (eastern time). The foldable phone Galaxy Z4 series will be released in two types of Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.

I will provide a more rich and optimized foldable experience with the no compromise of the details to the details.
Based on the IT foreign media and famous tips, which are familiar with smartphone information, we summarized the expected specifications of the Galaxy Z4 series.
■ ‘S Pen’ built-in, ‘screen wrinkle’ improvement attention
The biggest concern for Galaxy Z Fold 4 is whether the S pen is built in. Galaxy Z fold 3 is the first product of Samsung’s foldable phones to support the S Pen. However, the S Pen is not built into the phone, so it has been considered uncomfortable to carry. This is a general observation that the Galaxy Z fold 4 is likely to be equipped with an internal slot for S Pen. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, which was released in February this year, also received a great response by built into the Galaxy S series for the first time.
However, there is an observation that the S Pen slot will not be built in this Galaxy Z fold 4.
An official in the industry said, The Fold 4, which is released this time, is a mini version and a large version of the mini version and a large version of the mini version, which is slightly smaller than the existing product. I will not.
The external screen aspect ratio of the Galaxy Z fold 4 is expected to be changed from 24.5: 9 to 23: 9 and the internal screen from 5: 4 to 6: 5. The Under Display Camera, which is first applied to the Galaxy Z fold 3, is also applied this time. In addition, this new product is expected to be applied for the first time in the Scratch Super UTG (UTRA-THIN Glass) material. Super UTG is also applied to Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to be similar to its predecessor. The leaked Z flip 4 expected image inherits the design of the previous work, except that the buttons on the side are larger. However, the cover display of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to be 2.1 inches, expanding from 1.9 inches. The main display of Galaxy Z Flip 4 is the same 6.7-inch.
The screen wrinkles, which are pointed out as a disadvantage of foldable phones, are expected to improve than their predecessors. The IT Tipster Ice Universe released a comparison of Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Flip 4 Screen Wrinkles on Twitter at the end of last month.
■ 4 Nano Qualcomm Latest AP… Built-in memory 1TB release observation
The Galaxy Z4 series is expected to be equipped with Qualcomm’s latest application processor (AP) ‘Snapdragon 8+ 1st generation’. The Snapdragon 8+ 1st generation is a chip with a 30% increase in power efficiency, increasing CPU and GPU performance by up to 10% from the previous work (Snapdragon 8 1st generation) installed in the Galaxy S22 series. This AP is produced in the four-nanometer process of the TSMC foundry.
The memory of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be 12GB, and the built-in memory will be released in 256GB and 512GB. Some predict that 1TB of products will also be released for self-sufficiency. Samsung Electronics also launched a 1TB model in the Galaxy S22 Ultra for self-sufficiency.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 has only released 256GB of built-in memory, but Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to be released in two types with 512GB models.
■ Z flip 4, battery capacity increases and charging speed is faster
The existing Galaxy Z series has been pointed out as a disadvantage of battery capacity than low-end smartphones. For example, Samsung’s entry-level smartphone Galaxy A series is over 5000mAh.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to be equipped with a 3700mAh battery, which is 400mAh higher than its predecessor (3300mAh). The battery capacity of the Galaxy Z fold 4 is the same as the previous work (4400mAh).
The battery capacity is the same, but the charging rate is expected to improve instead. The charging speed of the Galaxy Z fold 4 is 25W, the same as the previous work, but the charging efficiency is expected to improve through the rechargeable setting adjustment. As a result, the Galaxy Z fold 4 will be charged 50% in 30 minutes. The charging speed of the Galaxy Z flip 4 will improve from the existing (15W) to 25W.
■ Z fold 4, main camera 50 million pixels… Z flip 4 is the same
The rear main camera of the Galaxy Z fold 4 is equipped with 50 million pixels for the first time. In addition, it is a triple camera with a 12-megapixel dual pixel camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. The remaining cover, the pixel of the camera on the front is expected to be the same as the previous work.
The camera of the Galaxy Z flip 4 is unlikely to change. Like the previous work, the rear is equipped with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera and a 12-megapixel dual pixel camera, with a 10 million pixel camera on the front.
■ Adoption of the first e-sim for the first time in the domestic terminal… 1 Phone 2 number available
The Galaxy Z4 series will support the ESIM for the first time in Korea. When the E-Shim is introduced, the Dual Sim (E Sim+U Sim) will be available. You can write two numbers as one smartph1. The e-sim, which is built into the smartphone, can be downloaded and opened with software. In Korea, the e-service service will be started on September 1.
In addition, it supports the same waterproof IPX8 grade and stereo speakers. The IPX8 grade can withstand up to 30 minutes of fresh water with a depth of 1.5m.
■ Z fold 4 shipping freezing… Z flip 4 slight increase forecast
The shipping price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to be released at 256GB (129,900 won) and 512GB (1,398,000 won). The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to be released at 129,000 won, up 45,000 won from its predecessor (256GB 1254,000 won). This time, the new model, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 512GB model, is expected to be 1,398,000 won.
The new product is likely to raise prices due to the price increase of logistics costs and raw materials. However, the Galaxy Z3 series, which was released last year, has been popular with a 20% lower price than before. Samsung Electronics seems to have frozen the price of the Z Fold 4 and the Z Flip 4 is slightly raised.
Color is expected to have no significant change with the existing 1. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is released in three colors: Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Beige, and Galaxy Z Flip 4 is expected to launch four colors: Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Blue.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was the first to launch the Bispork Edition for the first time last year. This year, the Galaxy Z flip 4 bispork edition is expected to be released. Bispork Edition is a product where customers choose and combine the front and rear and frame colors of the device. Last year, if a total of 49 color combinations were possible, it is expected to combine 71 colors this year.
This year, Samsung Electronics’ foldable phone shipments are expected to exceed 10 million units for the first time. Market research firm Counter Point predicts that the Galaxy Z series (folds, flip sums) shipments will reach 12.5 million units this year.
Kim Sung-gu, Managing Director of MX (Mobile), said in the second quarter earnings conference call on the 28th of last month. I’m planning.
