SamMobile has now obtained images of the two batteries meant for the Flip 4. The first cell has a rated capacity of 2,555mAh, and the second has a capacity of 1,040mAh. That means the phone will offer a total rated capacity of 3,595mAh and the typical capacity will likely be advertised as 3,700mAh. This will likely have a significant effect on battery life, which will also get a boost from the more power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip. The chip will be backed by up to 512GB of storage – double that of the Flip 3 – and 8GB of RAM.
The most common complaint about Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 is that its battery life is disappointing. Earlier speculations claimed that its replacement will only receive a minor battery upgrade, but evidence to the contrary is emerging. Images of the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s batteries have appeared online today, adding credence to reports that the overall battery capacity would be significantly increased. A dual-battery system is included in Samsung’s foldable phones. The total average capacity of the Z Flip 3 was 3,300mAh, which was insufficient for most power users. The Flip 4 was initially expected to have a 3,400mAh battery, however later speculations suggested that capacity will be increased to 3,700mAh.
Other rumored specs include a 6.7-inches main screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz, the same dual rear camera array and front snapper, and an Armor Aluminum frame. Samsung will introduce the phone during the August Unpacked event where it will share the stage with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 duo.

You will also probably be able to pump power into the batteries at a faster rate, as the maximum charging speed is rumored to increase from 15w to 25w. Leaked real-world images and renders suggest that the Flip 4 will largely look the same as the Flip 3 but Samsung will introduce a few much-needed changes that could help the phone become the best foldable phone of 2022. The Flip 4 will allegedly have a less visible crease than the Flip 3. It is also expected to have a smaller hinge and a slightly larger 2.1-inches cover screen.
