Once is not usual, the next Samsung smartphones will be revealed before the hour by the famous “leaker” Evan Blass. This is how we discover the official renders of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4. The opportunity to learn a little more about these folding models.
In these images destined for the press, we discover the front of the two Samsung foldable phones and their different colors. This is also an opportunity to learn a little more about certain technical features of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4.
Few changes for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4?
Looking at these first images, one is tempted to say that the Korean manufacturer’s new high-end smartphones look like two drops of water compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3. But let’s not jump to conclusions and let’s focus on these images, which only show the front of the two devices.
The larger of the two, the Z Fold 4, is said to be available in three colors: black, gold/beige, and grey/blue. On one of the edges of the phone we can clearly see the power button with the fingerprint reader, as well as the volume controls just above it. We can clearly see the flap on the other edge, in which the SIM card is located.
For its part, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 would be available in four colors: grey, purple, gold and sky blue. We suspect similar positioning for the power button and volume control. Along the bottom edge is the USB-C port, a speaker grille, and two microphones.
Technical data sheets to be confirmed
Aside from these images, previous rumors have mentioned some of the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s features. It would run Android 12 with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 process, 12GB of RAM, and four variants with different storage capacities: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
Battery capacity and charging speed of the Z Fold 4 would not have changed compared to its predecessor (4400 mAh and 25 W). On the other hand, we expect changes on the camera side. In fact, Samsung could switch to a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 10-megapixel telephoto sensor for the 3x optical zoom.
For the rest, we can expect the two phones to deliver connectivity worthy of the high-end smartphones of 2022. We are thinking, of course, of 5G, but also of Wi-Fi 6E, NFC and a certification of IPX8 sealing. On the software side, they should also take advantage of some features specific to the Korean brand, such as Samsung Pay or the very successful Samsung DeX.
See you on August 10 for the official launch of the two phones that are set to be accompanied by the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.
