This year Samsung has been creating quite a buzz around the internet. The release of two anticipated devices, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, are expected to be scheduled in 2022. With an expected release comes many rumors and leaks. Let us check the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 rumors and leaks in this article.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series is an Android mobile series that is foldable. The first phone of this series, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, was released in 2019. With each passing year, Samsung introduced new models in the series. Samsung has made very impressive foldable phones that have taken the market by storm. Even with the high pricing, Samsung’s foldable phones are highly demanded.
This year there is a possibility of releasing a new model in the series- the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. While this is not officially stated by Samsung, there are a lot of new features that everyone is expecting from the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. In this article, we will round up all the leaks and rumors regarding Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 Release Date
There is no official word on the release date of the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. Everyone speculates the date on which the new addition to the Samsung Galaxy Z fold range will be released. Since we have no official word on this rumor, let us look at the previous release pattern.
Galaxy Z Fold: September 2019
Galaxy Z Fold 2: September 2020.
Galaxy Z Fold 3: August 2021
The last two phones in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold range were released in late summer and fall. If the same pattern is followed, then there is a possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be released around 30 August 2022.
We have assumed the last date of August because Samsung would want to stay away from mid-September when there is a possible launch of the iPhone 14.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 Price Expectations
A major Samsung Galaxy Z rumor that has been making rounds is that the phone will get cheaper. Many leaks have speculated that the price of the new Z Fold model will be lower than its predecessor.
If we look at the previous patterns, we come to the same conclusion. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 was priced at $1999 when it was released in 2020. Next year, The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 was released for $1799. This year we expect Samsung to follow the pattern and lower the price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 as well.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 New Design
Another Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 rumor is about the design change possibilities. While there will be no major changes in the design, it is rumored that Samsung may reduce the weight of this phone. Many leaks have speculated that Samsung is trying to make Galaxy Z Fold 4 light by changing its hinge and improving its waterproofing and dust proofing.
There are also claims that Samsung might use a single hinge instead of two, which will make the phone slimmer. However, there is one rumor that worries us. Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Z 4 will not have a slot for the S Pen.
There is no word from Samsung on any of these rumors. We have to wait till they make an official statement to know if any of these rumors are true.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 New Camera Setup
A Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 rumor that has made people very excited is about the new camera it could get. Many leaks have claimed that the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 might have the S22 Ultra’s 108MP main camera.
There is a possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 may have a 10-megapixel 3x optical zoom. Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 can also get the main and ultrawide camera of S22.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 Battery Capacity Rumors
There is a rumor that the battery of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will not change. It will be the same as the previous model in the series, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
This rumor has been an unfortunate one. The foldable phones require a lot of power to work. The screen is large and takes up a large amount of power. However, these phones have the battery life as regular phones.
We cannot make any claims regarding this rumor. Let us wait for an official announcement to clear the news around this subject.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 Tri-Fold Rumors
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series is one of the best foldable phone series available in the market. There is speculation that the Galaxy Z Fold series will also introduce a tri-fold model. However, we cannot be sure about the release date of this model.
However, we can’t be sure if a design that complicated could be developed before the release of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. Let us wait for an official word for this rumor.

Possibility of Name Change for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Range
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold range and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip range may get a new name in certain European countries. This is a possible rumor due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Apparently, in some European countries, Samsung has been selling the current models as The Galaxy Fold 3 – removing the letter Z from it. This is because the symbol Z has been adopted by the Russian officials as support of the invasion of Ukraine.
As of now, there is no official update on this name change. I guess we have to wait till the release of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 to see if these rumors turn out to be true.
What We Would Like to See in Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
While Samsung Galaxy foldable series is amongst the best in the market, there is still room for a lot of improvement. There are a lot of features we wanted to see in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold models. However, as Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is on its way, we can expect to have those missing features now.
Here is a list of features we want to see in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4:
1. Lower Price
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold range is quite expensive. Starting from $1799 this series is unaffordable for many people. However, we can understand the pricing of this product due to the high-end technology used in it. We have already mentioned speculations regarding the price drop for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we want the price issue to be resolved. We expect that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will become more affordable like its counterparts.
2. Better Cameras
If there is one thing most people check before buying a new phone, it has to be the camera specifications. People who are not tech-savvy want to buy a phone only because of the camera quality it provides. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold has been lagging in this race. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 had the same cameras as the previous model, Galaxy Z Fold 2.
For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we expect a change in the camera specifications. While it is rumored that this phone will have a better camera, we will trust it only after testing it.
3. Improved Battery Life
I have already focused on this problem. The foldable phones require a large battery due to the larger screen. However, with the small battery size, you have to keep charging it again and again. This is a hassle.
For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we expect an improved battery life. It would be a problem to charge the phone after every 8 hours. So we wish to see a better battery in Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
4. S Pen Support
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is compatible with the S Pen. However, in the Z Fold 3 model, the S Pen works only with the large main display and not the secondary screen. This is not a huge problem, but there is always room for improvement.
For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we want stylus support for both screens. We want to be able to use the S Pen on the whole screen.
5. Slimmer Frame
We all want our phones to be light and easy to carry around. Our phones carry our world inside them. Every information and every detail is stored in these devices. You have to carry your phone wherever you go. This makes it difficult to carry bulky phones around. It is quite difficult to make a slimmer frame for a foldable screen. But we can atleast try.
For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we want to have a slimmer frame. We don’t want the phone to look bulky when we carry it. It should be light and easy to carry around.
6. Hidden Display Creases
All Galaxy Z Fold users usually complain about the crease between the screen. This is the main side effect of having a foldable display. When you are watching content on a foldable phone, you will get a crease in the middle of the display.
We know it is quite impossible to erase these creases, but there can be an attempt to make them better hidden. For Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, we wish to have better-hidden display creases.
It is time to wrap up! This article has tried to address all the rumors floating around Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, we will be updating these sections as and when we get any new information regarding the new and hyped Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
