Anticipation is high for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. Luckily, the images of the flagship Android device have leaked.
Samsung was the pioneer when it came to foldable phones. They launched various foldable over the past few years. Even though the devices are pretty pricey, tech enthusiasts have flocked to get the phones. These devices offer a wider screen compared to their similar-sized counterparts, allow multitasking on both screens and usually have a third screen on the front when the device is folded.
The Leaker of these images, 91mobiles and Evan Blass, has released what seems to be the first official-looking images of upcoming Samsung foldable smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
First up, let’s talk about the Fold 4. We don’t see the device from all sides, but the image exposes just enough to give us an idea of the three available colours: beige, phantom black, and grey-green. The names of these colours are according to Blass.
Evan Blass has said that more images are coming soon (including pictures from various angles). In retrospect, the revealing of the Foldable line of Samsung phones will be before the official launch, and most of the things would be already known by then.
A leaker by the name of Ice Universe has posted the full specifications of the Fold 4 series, and he
claims they’re 100% accurate. This provides us with a much better insight into the device. The Specs are:
Galaxy Z Fold4
7.6″ QXGA+ AMOLED, 120Hz
6.2″ HD+ AMOLED, 120Hz
Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
50MP + 12MP (UW) + 10MP (3x)
Inner Cam: 4MP 2.0μm (UDC)
Outer Cam: 10MP
Android 12, OneUI 4.1.1
4400mAh battery, 25W
The phone is speculated to feature a 6.2-inch 120Hz HD+ AMOLED cover panel and a 7.6-inch 120Hz QXGA+ AMOLED foldable screen. Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor is powering the foldable device. This high-performance processor is paired with 256GB/512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.
The rear camera module will have a 50-megapixel primary camera sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 10-megapixel, 3x optical zoom sensor. The inner selfie camera will still feature a 4-megapixel under the screen sensor. The outer selfie camera will have a 10-megapixel sensor.
Samsung has not had a good relationship with batteries (remember those Note 7 batteries spontaneously combusting?). However, the Fold 4 will feature a 4,400 mAh battery capable of 25W charging.
Assuming the data is indeed 100% accurate, there’s no surprise in this list of specifications. The Fold 4 will be on the same level as other flagships coming out in the latter 2022.
Samsung has now confirmed the August 10 date for the launch of new foldable phones. This date has been in the rumours for quite some time now. The company tweeted a riddle with three images: One containing circles and the other containing jumbled characters. The last image displays the circles you need to match with the characters to find the launch date.
Samsung will also likely launch two new Smartwatches at the August 10 event. The Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Also, as is the norm, the new Galaxy Buds 2 Pro earbuds will be launched.
