We haven’t seen much exciting in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 leaks yet, with available information suggesting that it will be very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. But finally, we have seen something that might make it worth upgrading.
Leak @UniverseIce spotted a Geekbench benchmark listing for the phone, and it includes a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset.
It’s a chipset that hasn’t even been announced yet, but it’s an upgrade from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which is currently used by most Android flagships, including including the Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup in some regions.

If it gets this chip, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 could be more powerful than even the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
And in regions like the UK, which arguably has a lesser Exynos 2200 chipset in the Galaxy S22 range, the upgrade will be even bigger – Samsung generally uses the same chipset globally for its foldable phones, we’re sure. so expect the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus to be used worldwide.
That said, not every aspect of performance will be an upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, as the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is listed here with 8GB of RAM. It’s the same starting amount as the S22 Ultra, but while Samsung’s flagship can hold up to 12GB, we might only see one RAM configuration in the Z Flip 4 based on past form. .
It’s also worth noting that while this benchmark is for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, we expect the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 to use the same chipset, so it’s likely to be a very powerful phone too.
Analysis: The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 suddenly became interesting
We’ve been a little behind on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 so far, as the design and screens would be more or less identical to the Z Flip 3. Slight camera and battery improvements have been made. suggested, but nothing too exciting.
That left a possible price cut as the only really notable rumor we’d heard about the phone, as a lower price could really push the foldable into the mainstream.
But if it’s both cheaper than the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and one of the most powerful phones of the year, then suddenly the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a handset worth looking into.
Nothing we’ve heard about it has been confirmed yet, so we’d take all of this with a pinch of salt; but it could end up being one of Samsung’s most impressive phones of 2022.
