The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 may have a rotating main camera

Points Highlighted:

  • The patent application in question shows us the following Z Flip 3-like phone with said rotating camera idea.

  • But now, thanks again to our friends at LetsGoDigital, we might actually be getting a look at what next year’s Z Flip 4 will have in store for us. Because of a newly-released Samsung patent, which the Korean giant initially filed in January of 2021, we now know that the 2022 Z Flip might have a “rotary camera disposed in hinge part”, as it’s described.

Such a design would negate the need for a holepunch selfie camera, as the higher quality main dual camera module will be able to serve as both the main and the selfie camera.

In addition, the above-mentioned Samsung patent shows plans for a much larger secondary display than we expect it to be on next month’s Galaxy Z Flip 3. So even though the Z Flip 3 is exciting, the Z Flip 4 could be a major leap ahead for Samsung’s clamshell folding phone series. At least if what Samsung is considering in this patent actually makes it into a final product.

We’ve seen various companies tinker with the idea of a rotating camera module like this in patents before, and we’ve also been able to try some out in released products like the Asus ZenFone 7 Pro.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 itself is expected soon, as mentioned, and will pack a 6.7-inch 120Hz main (folding) display, an 1.83-inch secondary display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. According to the latest leaks, it will come in four colors – Light Violet, Beige, Green, and Black.

On its expected August 11 announcement event, the Z Flip 3 will be made official alongside another folding Samsung phone – the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
