The upcoming flagship foldable phones Galaxy Z Fold 4 & Flip 4 has received FCC certificates. The new certificates give a green signal for these phones to enter the US market, which is a necessary step. The Qualcomm-powered Galaxy Z Fold 4 device a few days ago went through the certification site. Now today, Galaxy Z Flip 4 with carrier-locked and unlocked variants has passed through the FCC site.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is carrying model number SM-F936U, which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Gen 2 processor. The Z Flip 4 with both carriers locked and unlocked variants carrying SM-F721U & SM-F721U1 model numbers, respectively.
Unlike Fold 4, the Flip 4 may not have Qualcomm Snapdragon Gen 2 processor. Instead, it may be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Gen 1+ chipset, which has been recently revealed in a benchmark entry a few weeks ago.
In terms of design, both foldable phones will not get major changes. The Bespoke edition for Flip 4 will come with plenty of color options to maintain the success of Z Flip 3. Both devices will run on Samsung’s upcoming Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 software.
There is no confirmed date of launching, but Samsung could announce its next foldable device on August 10. It will be the company’s biggest event, where it will announce smartwatches, earbuds, and foldable phones.
