Even Samsung’s current Galaxy S22 series appears to be a step ahead of the next generation of foldables from the South Korean company.
According to recent speculation, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 are expected to be powered by a new “Plus” version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. A S Pen silo is believed to be included in the Fold 4 version of the Galaxy Z Fold, which is expected to remain virtually unchanged from its predecessors.
TSMC has also produced a new version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for the Fold 4 and Flip 4, according to Ice Universe. The new “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+” chip, which is scheduled to be made by TSMC instead of Samsung, is believed to have certain performance gains as a result of this manufacturing move.
In the past, Samsung’s foldables have always used the same chipset as the Galaxy S flagship of the same year. This would be a notable departure from the past few generations.
The Snapdragon 888+ was available at the time of its debut, but it is used in the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and not in the Galaxy S21 series.
However, it appears that’s not all Samsung has planned. In a rumour from Galaxy Club, Samsung is said to be working on a third foldable form factor known as “N4.” The “4” here alludes to the fact that this is Samsung’s fourth generation of foldable devices.
However, the design of this new foldable device remains a mystery. At CES, Samsung showed off a number of innovative designs, including a rollable display and various devices with double-folding screens, but none of them were confirmed for production.
