Samsung reportedly orders nearly 60% more display panels for the Galaxy Z Flip4
Another report comes from Ross Young, CEO of Display Suppy Chain Consultants (DSCC). The report, via Twitter, states that Samsung is expecting to receive a much larger initial order of display panels for its successor to the Galaxy Z Flip3.
Samsung Display is expected to begin panel shipments for the Z Flip 4 next month, same timing as the Z Flip 3 last year. But panel shipments are expected to be much larger. Expecting 8.7M panels in 2022 for the Z Flip 4 vs. 5.1M for the Z Flip 3 in 2021.— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) March 15, 2022
According to Young, Samsung Display expects to begin shipping these display panels as soon as April, only the shipment volume is expected to be nearly 60% higher (8.7 million) than Samsung Display’s initial shipment of displays for the Galaxy Z Flip3 in 2021 (5.1 million).Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3
Samsung may be expecting to output even more foldables this year, corroborating with reports from back in November that suggested Samsung expects to ramp up production of both the Z Flip4 and Z Fold4. However, Samsung would focus more on production of the Z Flip4 over the Fold, likely due to its scalability and more accessible price point. The Z Flip3 5G launched with a starting price of $999, significantly undercutting the original Z Flip3’s $1,380 price point.
With every passing year, each subsequent generation of Samsung’s Z foldables has become increasingly popular as the lineup becomes more polished with every new iteration. Remember, the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold 2 featured articulating hinges, and both the Z Flip 3 5G and Z Fold3 are fully water resistant.
