Rumors are that both these smartphones will be launched along with the Galaxy Watch 5 on August 10 and the sale of the products will start from August 26.

Phones will be shipped in equal proportion
Samsung expects the same ratio of Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 shipments apart from the 15 million shipment target. The report claims that Samsung shipped more clamshell foldable phones last time, which essentially means that the South Korean company is looking to increase shipments of the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
buying parts from china
The third important point regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 is that Samsung has reduced production of this year’s foldable smartphone and has instead increased the number of Chinese suppliers. The report said that Samsung Electronics is procuring camera modules from Chinese companies like Electro-Mechanics, Partron, MCNEX, Camsys, Power Logics and other Chinese companies. It is being said that both the phones will be mass-produced from the end of June.
