    Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 has just been announced for the world and there are a couple of changes over the previous models. The Flip 4 was announced alongside the Fold 4, Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds Pro 2 earbuds. Samsung seems to have not changed the design theme majorly this year and instead focused on meaningful changes for the Flip 4. Those who are coming from the original Galaxy Z Flip or the Flip 3 have a couple of upgrades to look for. Sadly, Samsung is yet to announce the prices for the Flip 4 in India.

    Hence, if you are planning to buy the Flip 4, you should wait until Samsung drops the price for the Indian market. Currently, the Flip 4 comes with a starting price of $999 in the US. While the design looks largely the same, here are a couple of changes in comparison to the the Galaxy Z Flip 3 from last year.

    Faster and efficient chip

    The Galaxy Z Flip 4 gets the latest 4nm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset based on the TSMC process. Compared to the Snapdragon 888 on the Flip 3, this chip is theoretically more powerful and power efficient.

    Better Battery life

    With a larger 3700mAh battery, the Flip 4 has the biggest battery in the Flip series phones from Samsung. The Flip 3 with its 3300mAh battery could barely survive a single day but we expect the Flip 4 with the larger battery and more power efficient chipset.

    Faster charging speeds

    Yes, the Flip 3 had a slower 15W wired charging solution and Samsung upgrades the experience with the “faster” 25W wired charging.

    Better cameras

    The Galaxy Flip 4 may seem to have older 12MP cameras but these are the newer image sensors that Samsung uses in its Galaxy S series phones. Plus, Samsung has also added Nightography for improved low light photography, which is aided with these larger image sensors.

    More useful Cover Display

    The Cover Display may still measure 1.9-inches but it now offers more device controls as well as customisation features (GIFs, videos).
