Samsung seems to be expecting great things from the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. The phone is expected to sell much better than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
Ross Young claims that Samsung plans to make 8.7 million panels for its phone by 2022. This is a far greater number than the 5.1 million used for the Z Flip 3 in 2020.
These numbers are not the actual sales expects, but screens. This means that far more units will be manufactured by the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 in its launch year than the Z Flip 3.
Young claims panel shipments will start in April. This is exactly the same time as last year’s Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
This suggests that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will arrive around one year after the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. It is expected to land in August.
Analysis: what makes the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 so special?
This leak does not provide any insight into the reasons why the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will sell so well. However, we can make a guess.
According to Display Supply Chain Consultants, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is currently the most popular foldable phone in the company.
It is easy to see why: you can buy a Galaxy Z Flip 3 with no second mortgage. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4’s success is likely to be determined by its price.
However, this doesn’t mean that Samsung expects it will do better than the current model. We believe that Samsung will not increase the price of its phones each year and instead offer the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 for about the same price as the Z Flip 3.
It could make this an upgrade to the current model. Other leaks indicate that the battery and camera may be improving. However, they’ll only be receiving a slight boost and the overall device could be very similar.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 won’t be the most innovative foldable phone in 2022, but that’s why it may be the best-selling.
