Unboxing & First Impression: The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4

Is Samsung really launching the 4th gen of the Galaxy Flip already? In a blink of an eye, another foldable from Samsung is here so let’s get started with my first impression of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4.


Alike the previous generation of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, the phone comes in a simple black box with the word ‘FLIP’ on the top which represents the key feature of this phone, a ‘flip-phone’ geddit?


This version of the Galaxy Z Flip4 comes in 4 base colors - Graphite, Pink Gold, Bora Purple, and Blue. For humans who love to mix&match, Samsung released a Bespoke edition allowing for up 75 color combinations - available exclusively on Samsung’s website. The unit I received is in the color Pink Gold which has a very feminine touch.

Within the box, you will find the following items:


  • The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4

  • Sim-Card Ejector

  • Paperwork

  • USB Type-C to USB Type-C charging cable



Since the phone came in a very very slim box, I was right in the assumption that it doesn’t come with a charging unit like its previous predecessor - as Samsung is encouraging it’s users to reuse their previous adapters.


Now, let’s talk about how it looks. The phone looks similar to the Flip3 however, the back now comes with a more matte finish compared to the glossy one last year. The bar is now shiny and thinner compared to its previous generation.

As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, Samsung applied this saying to the latest generation of flip and fold phones. The phone still comes with an Armour Aluminium Metal and a Gorilla Glass Victus+ to protect the entirety of the phone. To top it off, it still comes with the same IPX8 water resistance.


Aside from durability, Samsung still brought over the same specifications for the cover panel display, retaining its 1.9” size. Not a problem for me as it gets the job done and eliminates the need to flip open my phone just to read my notifications.


The main screen boasts a 6.7-inch FHD AMOLED display and a 120Hz refresh rate.


The volume rocker and the lock button are located on the right side of the phone while the sim-card slot is on the left. The charging port is located on the bottom and this phone doesn’t include a 3.5mm audio jack so you definitely gotta have a pair of wireless buds lying around.


In terms of specifications, my unit comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and a 3,700mAh battery along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There are also 2 other variants that come with 256GB and 512GB of ROM respectively.


And since minmin is super happy with the selection of colors all thanks to the bespoke edition, minmin is also super excited to see if the performance can live up to its predecessor. So stay tuned to my full review that shall be coming, very very soon.
