Samsung launched its Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic in August 2021 which means they’re almost a year old today. However, we believe they’re among the top smartwatches that you can purchase right now. As torchbearers for Google’s new Wear OS 3platform, both models, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic had plenty to provide. It’s now 2022, which implies that a new model is in the works – the believed to be Galaxy Watch 5. It’s still a couple of weeks away from an expected launch at Samsung’s ‘Galaxy unpacked Event, but we know plenty about the brand new watch. Let’s go over some reports, leaks and basically all known about Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch.
Although Samsung has offered an unveiled glimpse into its Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ trailer, the company has yet to show off the phone. We’re using leaks and rumors to build a picture and see the way this phone is shaping up. Everything you’re reading is official, unless specifically stated otherwise, so you should take all information with a pinch salt. We’ll be updating this page as time goes on to create the Galaxy Z Fold 4 hub with all the pertinent and correct information after the launch.
The popular tipster Jon Prosser also tipped the exact dates on Twitter several months ago. Pre-orders are likely to begin shipping in the coming days and the phone could be available for purchase from August 26. Now is the time to pre-order the latest Galaxy model and make a big savings on your purchase as it becomes available.
If you’re wondering it’s about the same time that Apple is planning to launch the new iPhone. It’s possible to see a mid-September launch of this year’s iPhone 14 series, meaning that we’ll again have an array of flagships to pick from during the Christmas season.
For price of for the price, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to experience an increase of just a little but it’s not likely to be anything major. It’s only one or two days of an Galaxy Unpacked event now, therefore we recommend waiting for the official price instead of speculate further. It’s the Galaxy Z Fold 3, for those who are curious, has arrived in the marketplace with a start cost of $1,799 for the US with the more storage version costing $1,899. This, again make this Galaxy Z Fold 4 one of the priciest foldables available on the market in addition to being the most expensive. We’re hoping Samsung does not leave any stone left unturned with its Galaxy Z Fold 4. It’s still a significant number on the cost however, it will make it more attractive should Samsung manage to complete all the boxes that are on our wish list. For those looking to save on a foldable are likely to choose between Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip or try finding other excellent foldables.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 or simply Galaxy Fold 4?
There’s probably nothing to talk about, but it’s important to note that Samsung could remove the letter Z from its logo. The company has already made this change in certain European countries for those who aren’t aware. Samsung hasn’t made an formal statement regarding the reason for the change, however there is speculation that it’s because of the unstable geopolitical environment in some parts of Europe. While speculations are fine, we’d like to see Samsung removes its”Z” from its logo “Z” from the brand across the world. Why? It would make it much easier and easier to follow. This “Samsung Galaxy Fold 4” is an incredibly long name, but it doesn’t contain the imposingly introduced letters. Actually, you can name it”the “Galaxy Fold 2022” or”the “Samsung Fold 2022”. We’ll take any name that will allow people to distinguish the phones. The Senior Editor of XDA and a fellow enthusiast of foldable phones, Ben, explains it extremely well through one of his Twitter posts:
Specifications: What is the latest chip?
This is a part that will be updated in the near future with a fully-fledged specifications table. There’s nothing new to add to the table this moment, as Samsung has been able to keep many details about the forthcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 under the hood. Rumors suggest it’s driven by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 (SM8475) SoC that’s built on TSMC’s 4-nm process. The chipset will be more effective than Samsung’s Exynos 2200, and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, that are manufactured using Samsung Foundry’s 4nm process.
Recently an Galaxy Z Fold 4 variant Model number SM-936U has been spotted on Geekbench with it’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. Take an in-depth look at the image that shows that the Geekbench five benchmark score:
Like the predecessor the latest chipset is expected to come with up to 12GB RAM as well as up to the 512GB storage capacity. Its Galaxy Z Fold 4 variant that was spotted at the Geekbench website seems to come with 12GB of RAM and is consistent with the reported figure. The likelihood of microSD cards being able to return is extremely unlikely, which means you’ll need to be discerning regarding the right storage configuration.
There’s no information on the battery in Galaxy Z Fold 4. Galaxy Z Fold 4 too We’re hoping for an upgrade to a battery bigger than the one that’s inside Galaxy Z Fold 3. Galaxy Z Fold 3. Therefore, any battery larger than 4,400 mAh and with the ability to charge quickly could be a good feature. We expect reverse and wireless charging to be part of the specs sheet , too. Other features we expect from Galaxy Z Fold 4 Galaxy Z Fold 4 includes 5G support as well as headphones with stereo, S Pen Fold Editionor S Pen Pro support, and much more.
Design: A little thinner and shorter folding version this time around.
There’s a rumor there is a rumor that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a very similar design as its previous. We’ve uncovered some images that have been leaked from a trusted source to show that the new smartphone within the series will appear like the original in style and style, however it’s a little smaller and more compact. Check out the render below at the rendering yourself:
If you look at the images above we can safely say it’s likely that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 might be a bit like its predecessor that was it’s the Galaxy Z Fold 3, with a few minor changes. Samsung seems to have removed the camera island that resembles a pill to bring it more like its Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera lineup. It’s not the best option to judge the look of a device through renderings and we’ll save our opinions until we receive the phone for a test.
We also have press shots from the Galaxy Z Fold 4 from Evan Blass. The renders below are, as you can see, show three different colors of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in three shades: Phantom black, beige and gray-green. These renders focus on the foldable screen, however you can also see an integrated fingerprint scanner on the side and a volume rocker at the right side.
If that’s not enough, then go through these renderings that have been leaked that showcase how the Galaxy Fold 4 from all angles. This is the best view of the phone so far and they leave no room for imagination.
Another aspect worth noting in the design aspect is the fact that Galaxy Z Fold 4 is likely to sport slightly altered aspect ratios, both for the internal and external display. The device will remain mostly tall, however it could change the way you use it most likely in a positive manner.
According to leaks according to the leaks, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will measure the following dimensions: 155 x 130x 7.1mm when folded. Contrary to that, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 measured 158.2 inches x 128.1 x 6.4mm when unfolded. This means that it is likely that the new model to be slightly smaller in width, length, and thickness as compared with its previous. Galaxy Z Fold 4 Galaxy Z Fold 4 will likely be available for purchase in Beige, Black, and Gray colors, however we expect to see some fresh and intriguing color options when it goes to the time of launch. We believe Samsung did an amazing job in colors from the Galaxy S22 series colors and we wouldn’t want to see a different color scheme in this Galaxy Z Fold 4 too.
A side-mounted fingerprint scanner mounted on the side is easy to use if it is placed in the right place and often is much more efficient and reliable than in-display scanners as well. Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 was also a step up from previous models like the Galaxy Z Fold 2 when it is durable. It is also more durable than the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Galaxy Z Fold 3 was Samsung’s first foldable that had the IPX8 rating, which is a welcomed upgrade over the previous model. It would be great to have that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 picking the certification for protection and dust resistance as well.
We also can see the USB Type-C port on the renders as well as speaker grills as well as a plethora of microphones. However, there’s no headphone Jack. The most surprising thing is it appears that Galaxy Z Fold 4 does not appear to have a dedicated slot for S Pen. S Pen too. The ability to use S Pen with the S Pen with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is an incredible experience, but not being able secure it in its place isn’t enjoyable. You can certainly purchase cases to place into the S Pen in, but it’s a bit of an extra feature on an item that costs the same amount than it is. We’ll just have to settle for what we’ve got for now in terms of its design.
Display: New aspect ratios!
Similar to its predecessor as well, as with its previous model, Galaxy Z Fold 4 is also likely to feature two displays , the cover display on the outside and the more spacious inner display, which is revealed when you fold the device. The new foldable like we said earlier, is expected to sport slightly altered aspect ratios for the screens. It might not appear to be something that makes a difference, but we think it’s sufficient that the foldable will appear less bulky in comparison to Galaxy Z Fold 3. Take an in-depth look at:
Note how the Oppo Find N (top) folds flatly, whereas Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 (bottom) leaves a tiny gap between them? It’s due to the differences of the hinge system that is used by these smartphones. This hinge mechanism on the Oppo Find N’s hinge features an incredibly small hole in which the screen slides into. This hinge is also that the main display inside doesn’t have any fold. We’re hoping Samsung has learned from this and is working on improving the hinge on its forthcoming foldable.
Well, that brings us to the conclusion of this rumor round-up/Galaxy Z Fold 4 expectation write-up. We’re still a couple of weeks away from the official unveiling of this particular device but it’s already shaping up to be a solid successor to the Galaxy Z Fold 3. All the leaks and rumors have been promising so far and we hope many of them turn out to be true, so we can finally take them off our wishlist. We’ll constantly update this page with more info in the future leading up to the final release, so be sure to check back for updated specs, features, and more.
