Samsung smartphones with flexible screens traditionally come out together, so today, along with Galaxy Z Fold 4 debuted and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Here, too, there were no revolutions, and, unlike the older brother, the camera did not change at all.

The main camera of the smartphone uses 12-megapixel sensors. The main one is with a wide-angle lens with F / 1.8 aperture and optical stabilization system, the additional one is with an ultra-wide-angle lens. Exactly the same scheme is used in the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
