This year, Samsung may have already revealed upgrades to its flagship Galaxy S series, as well as updates to its Galaxy A mid-range smartphones, but we are still waiting for updates to its foldable Galaxy Z series.
Both the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4 have been the subject of rumors. In a separate post, we looked at the book-style Z Fold 4, but today we’re looking at the horizontal folding flip phone, the Galaxy Z Flip 4.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are highly anticipated by Samsung fans. Last year, the business significantly improved its foldable cell phones. It will be fascinating to see how they progress even further in 2022.
Samsung is expected to release these gadgets in the second part of the year. Given how close that date is, it’s hardly surprising to learn that the business has begun mass-producing major components for its upcoming foldable series.

The mass manufacture of finished devices is scheduled to begin next month.
Samsung has reportedly begun mass production of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4’s key components. The devices are likely to go into mass manufacturing next month or in early July.
Samsung is expected to deploy over 10 million copies of its revolutionary foldable smartphones, according to reports. Because the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is the more popular gadget, it will likely account for the majority of these units. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 are expected to ship 70 percent and 30 percent of the time, respectively.
If the business can ship 10 million new foldable this year, it will be the first time that foldable smartphones have a 1% penetration rate in the worldwide smartphone market. It will be a watershed moment because foldable are still a small part of the overall market. Samsung has been attempting to promote foldable cell phones.
According to reports, Samsung opts for a 15% profit margin on the foldable instead of the typical 20% profit margin on the Galaxy S series to keep prices within reach of consumers.
We anticipate the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be priced similarly to its predecessor, which started at $999 in the US and £949 in the UK. There has been talking that the device may be reduced. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 smartphones are one step closer to becoming a reality in price, which we welcome. But nothing has been verified as of yet.
