- The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4’s battery capacity may go unchanged.
- Samsung seems to have kept the capacity the same despite a sleeker design.
Details have leaked about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4, and it’s a mixed back on the battery front.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is already the leading foldable phone on the market, thanks to a solid design, good performance, and excellent reliability, and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to build on those traits. Unfortunately, the latest leak indicates the new model’s battery capacity may go unchanged from the existing model.
According to the Dutch language site GalaxyClub, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature the same dual-battery layout as its predecessor. The first battery’s capacity is reportedly rated at 2,002mAh, while the second comes in at 2,268mAh. This would give the new model the same 4,270mAh capacity as the existing Galaxy Z Fold 3.

While some users are sure to be disappointed, there is a silver lining to the news. All evidence points to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 sporting a slimmer design than its predecessor. If the reports are accurate, it means that Samsung found a way to make the new model sleeker without sacrificing its battery capacity.
Taken together, these details should help reassure users that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is likely to retain Samsung’s crown as offering the best foldable phone on the market — even if the battery doesn’t receive an upgrade.
