Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 4 is now "last year's foldable" — it is getting replaced by the new Galaxy Z Fold 5, which was announced at Samsung's summer Unpacked.

But the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is still around, still a fan favorite, and you can often find a deal on it. Here's everything you need to know about Samsung's 2022 best foldable.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 release date
The Z Fold 4 has been announced at the Samsung Unpacked 10th of August event. Pre-orders were instantly open, and the phone officially launched on the 26th of August, 2022.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 price
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 starts at $1,799 — which is the price-tag the Z Fold 3 launched with. It was expected that the 4th generation of foldables would have some kind of price reduction. However, even if Sammy intended to do that, it ultimately did not happen.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 reviews
(Image Credit - PhoneArena) Hands-on with the Z Fold 4
We've spent quite a lot of time with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and put it through our review process, first individually, then comparing it to its competition and its predecessors:
- Our impressions with the Z Fold 4 show that it's a slightly revamped Galaxy Z Fold 3 with a more usable outside screen and fleshing out of old ideas. After we dove deeper, we loved it. Here is our Galaxy Z Fold 4 review.
- To really dive deeper into what's different compared to 2021, we drew a comparison between the Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Galaxy Z Fold 4.
- Do you even need a foldable phone, or can you manage just fine with the gargantuan Galaxy S22 Ultra? We try to answer this in Galaxy Z Fold 4 vs Galaxy S22 Ultra.
- Which foldable is right for you? The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a booklet-type and turns into a semi-tablet type of phone. The Galaxy Z Flip 4, on the other hand, folds in for a smaller footprint while in your pocket. Make your choice with Galaxy Z Fold 4 vs Galaxy Z Flip 4.
- Finally, what's better — Apple's top-tier device at the time of Z Fold 4 release, or the actual Fold? Here, we have the Galaxy Z Fold 4 vs iPhone 13 Pro Max.
In what colors is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 available?
The Z Fold 4 is available in three main colors — Phantom Black, Graygreen, and Beige. However, if you shop directly from Samsung, you can grab it in a special edition Burgundy, which looks lovely.

What is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 battery capacity?
The Z Fold 4 has a 4,400 mAh battery — just like the cell in the Galaxy Z Fold 3. However, it seems Samsung did some extra optimizing, as the Fold 4 was better at staying on for longer during our battery tests — 9 hours of YouTube streaming, for example, is a pretty good result for a modern smartphone!
Using the Samsung 25 W Fast Charger for 30 minutes will get the Fold 4 from 0% to 50%. See our full analysis of the Z Fold 4 battery life.
What are the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 camera specs?
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 got an upgrade in the camera department, bringing its module in line with what the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ have to offer.
- 50 MP main camera
- 12 MP ultra-wide camera
- 10 MP telephoto with 3x zoom

What are the best Galaxy Z Fold 4 cases?
Samsung is gearing up to offer a richer selection of official Z Fold 4 cases this year — there's a slim standing cover, a classy leather cover, and the S Pen case, which has a slot for the stylus. 3rd party accessory makers are also now used to the new form factor that Samsung offers, and there are already cases available from Ringke, and Spigen, and we expect the list of Galaxy Z Fold 4 cases to grow fast.
What are the best Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals?
Currently, Samsung has a limited deal window open, with generous bonuses and enhanced trade-in discounts if you order the Z Fold 4 from the official store. Be sure to follow our Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals list, which we will update regularly as more become available.
