Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4: Plans, pricing and specs
Samsung may have somehow made the flip phone cool again but this year's iteration is only a slight improvement.
Samsung has officially flipped the lid on its 2022 suite of foldable phones (and a new watch!), revealing the anticipitated Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the more compact fan-favourite Galaxy Z Flip 4.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers a very slight upgrade to the Z Flip 3 but it's still a compelling choice for Australians heading into the fold with Samsung's flippy-flappy phones.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a fairly modest upgrade to the previous generation. There's an almost identical 6.7-inch display and just as many megapixels or an improved optical zoom in the dual-lens shooter (12MP + 12MP ultrawide) but Samsung suggests a larger image sensor in the Z Flip 4 will improve the results of low-light photography.
Besides that, there are a few small design updates (like frosted glass on the rear and steel frame) and a larger 3,700mAh battery that now supports 25W fast-charging.
When does the Galaxy Z Flip release in Australia?
Both of Samsung's new foldable smartphones— the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4— will hit Australia shelves on Friday, the 2nd of September. Australians who can’t wait to get their hands on either handset have until Thursday the 1st of September 2022 to get their pre-order in and take advantage of some of the appealing pre-order deals.
From the 2nd of September onwards, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be available through all the usual retail partners or on a plan through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.
How much does the Galaxy Z Flip 4 cost in Australia?
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is available in three storage variants: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB (the 1TB variant is exclusive to the Z Fold 4 and S22 Ultra). Here in Australia, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 starts at $1,499 for the 128GB, going up to $1,649 for the 256GB and $1,849 for the 512GB model. Here's how that compares with the rest of Samsung's premium range of smartphones.
