Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 tipped with next level upgrades


There may be an improvement in Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 performance in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.

The anticipated Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor may be found in Samsung’s next Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, according to leaker IceUniverse. This would give Samsung’s upcoming foldables a performance boost.

A Plus version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 had already been reported, but we’d expected it regardless. In recent years, Qualcomm has debuted Plus versions of its flagship processors halfway through their lifetime, which gives phones that launch later in the year a minor performance edge over those that launch earlier.


Samsung’s decision to use Snapdragon Plus CPUs in its foldables has received mixed reviews. The Snapdragon 888 processor is not found in the Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Galaxy Z Flip 3. In contrast, the Snapdragon 865 Plus was used in the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, while the original Galaxy Z Flip used a Snapdragon 855 Plus.

A few months ago, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S22 series, which utilises the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the United States and China, as well as the Exynos 2200 in other countries. Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus-powered foldables might exceed even Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra, depending on how much RAM the company chooses to utilise.

It’s also worth noting, though, that we don’t anticipate a considerable increase in daily performance beyond a few strenuous jobs, such as visually demanding gaming. However, given that foldable phones have the potential to be productivity engines, it would be a positive development if Samsung did really include the most powerful CPUs in its next-generation foldables.


In addition to the new silicon, there are a number of fascinating rumours about these devices. When folded, the Z Fold 4 might benefit from a new aspect ratio that makes the phone’s screen squarer. Considering the Z Fold 3’s $1,600 list price, it’s possible that it’s also becoming cheaper. The Z Flip 4 is expected to gain a bigger cover display for alerts and widgets, as well as a slightly larger battery that would extend the phone’s daily life.

Until Samsung releases the devices, these rumours will remain unverified. Like the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3’s introduction last year, we anticipate that to happen in late June or early August. The Snapdragon 8 Gen Plus is expected to be unveiled in late June or early July based on prior announcement dates, but the rumour we discussed previously suggests that it might be unveiled sooner than that.
