The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to be announced in the coming months. The hardware of the phone remains a mystery, but at the bare minimum, it is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 which is the chipset of choice for high-end flagship phones of 2022.
The good news is that it won’t be and will be powered by something a little bit more powerful. According to a recently discovered Geekbench 5 listing, it seems that the Fold 4 will instead be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. This is the latest chipset that Qualcomm announced not too long ago and is a slightly improved variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
In a way this shouldn’t be too surprising. In fact, recent rumors have suggested that this could be the case. Other rumors that we have been hearing include how the phone’s inner foldable display could actually feature a less noticeable crease, and how it could also feature a more durable display.
Some rumors have also suggested that the price of the phone could be lower than its predecessor, and that a 1TB variant could also be offered. In any case, it’s probably best to take these benchmarks with a grain of salt for now as they could have been faked, but hopefully Samsung will have more news to share in the coming months.
