Samsung holds the majority of shares in the foldable phone market with its Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold lineups. But, as new players are coming, the South Korean giant will have to keep improving its foldable phone to stay dominated. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G launch last year faced a lot of heat from users as the device could not completely hide the under-display selfie camera. While Xiaomi’s under-screen camera solution in Mix 4 is impressive.
According to a reliable tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset inside the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4. It is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 built on TSMC’s 4nm process. The fourth-generation of Samsung foldable phones are expected to carry the same design language with several display tweaks.
