If you're struggling to find the differences between this bad boy and its best-selling predecessor, allow us to give you a hand. First and perhaps most importantly, the Z Flip 4 (which may or may not lose the letter "Z") has long been expected to upgrade the Z Flip 3's 3,300mAh battery to 3,700mAh capacity.

That still might not sound like a huge juicer by 2022 high-end standards, but it's certainly impressive to hear that Samsung will somehow keep the weight and thickness of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (largely) unchanged.

No, a weight gain of four grams definitely doesn't feel like a problem, and even more remarkably, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is set to trim a little "fat" off its forerunner's length and width for an overall more compact body... with a "fundamentally revised" hinge also in tow to improve robustness and (hopefully) long-term endurance.

The battery gets faster charging capabilities as well (even though the new numbers are still not on par with some of the premium non-foldable competition), and then you of course have a state-of-the-art new SoC.

Galaxy Z Flip 4 pricing and availability

If you're happy with the aforementioned upgrades, you'll be able to pre-order the Z Flip 4 in the same two storage variants as the Z Flip 3 starting this Wednesday, August 10, plus a third one expected to cost €1279 in Europe.

The 128 and 256 gig models, meanwhile, are likely to go for €1099 and €1159 respectively, which is... slightly higher than you may have anticipated based on the Galaxy Z Flip 3's launch structure a year ago.

Stateside, mind you, the same Z Flip 3 versions normally set you back $999 and $1049, so a US price hike to at least $1049 and $1099 (if not $1099 and $1149) is definitely possible as far as the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is concerned.

In lack of an oft-rumored larger cover display and some obvious camera hardware improvements, it's pretty clear that Samsung will try to aggressively promote the revised and refined design and the bigger battery as the key selling points of its "next small thing." It remains to be seen if that will be enough to justify these (slightly) higher prices and meet the company's lofty sales expectations.
