Here’s what we’ve heard about the Galaxy Fold 4 so far in terms of price, new features and possible specs. We will update this story as new information becomes available.
A possible leak from Amazon reports a lot of details of the Galaxy Z Fold 4
Another Samsung foldable phone may have been accidentally revealed in the Dutch Amazon store. Anreported by 9to5Google on Friday, includes mention of a 6.2-inch outer display, a 7.6-inch inner display, a 120Hz refresh rate on both screens, and a new S Pen case.
According to the listing, the phone’s internal screen displays a main panel similar to that seen on Android tablets, which includes app icons and other controls. The listed model also packs 512GB of storage and 12GB of memory.
Design: Galaxy Z Fold 4 may not have an S Pen slot, but maybe a new hinge
There is no doubt that the Galaxy Fold series is a remarkable display of technology and innovation. But there’s only one thing: Samsung’s top-of-the-line foldable devices it isn’t inherently practical such asor even the Galaxy Note series. For example, there was no S Pen slot in the Galaxy Fold 3, and based on rumors, it’s unclear if the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have one.
Twitter leak ice universe, known for publishing Samsung leaks, said in April that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 would not have an S Pen storage slot. But Korean news outlet The Elec previously reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 I would to be Samsung’s first foldable device to include a dedicated S Pen case.
Fingers crossed that the latter is true. Even better would be if the Z Fold 4 supported a way to magnetically attach the S Pen to the hinge of the phone, similar to how the Apple Pencil can stick to the iPad Pro.
Speaking of hinges, the next Galaxy Z Fold may feature a single-hinged design instead of the double-hinged one featured on Samsung’s previous foldable phones. So according to leaker @TheGalox9to5Google says it has decent results. Ice universe also reported similar findings recently where the Z Fold 4’s hinge is said to be actually slimmer. This change would likely result in a thinner and lighter overall design compared to the Z Fold 3.
Expect the screens to remain the same size as those found on the Z Fold 3. Ice Universe says the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a 7.6-inch internal display and a 6.2-inch external screen (identical specs to the reported Amazon leak), each of which it will reportedly have a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The Galaxy Fold 4 could rock a double-sided fingerprint reader
Samsung introduced the fingerprint sensor to its foldable phone with the Galaxy Fold 3, where it is located on the right side of the handset. It is accessible regardless of whether the device is folded or open, and also serves as a power button.
However, that fingerprint reader may be on the move and placed under the screen instead, according to Dutch publication Lets Go Digital. To support this claim, Lets Go referenced a patent that Samsung filed in March last year, saying that the company plans to incorporate a fingerprint reader in such a way that it can be used as a two-sided fingerprint sensor. It would work on the cover screen (when the handset is folded) as well as when the device is unfolded on a tablet-sized device. On the cover screen, the fingerprint sensor would reportedly be used from the center of the bottom of the display. When the phone is unfolded, it will be in the center of the bottom left of the screen, the report said.
Cameras: What to expect from the Galaxy Z Fold 4
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 could get an upgrade similar to the Galaxy S22. According to Dutch blog GalaxyClub, Samsung may adopt the Galaxy S22’s 10-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom for the upcoming foldable device. If this rumor turns out to be true, the Fold 4 will have a better zoom range than previous models of the device.
The leak from Ice Universe also suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will inherit some features from the Galaxy S22’s camera. This means that a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 10-megapixel telephoto lens can be stocked. As for the selfie camera, Ice Universe reports that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a 4-megapixel internal camera and a 10-megapixel external camera just like its predecessor.
The Samsung Fold 4 may also have under-display cameras on the cover and internal screens. The Galaxy Fold 3 also debuted an under-display camera to Samsung’s lineup of foldable devices. It sits below the large internal display and is one of five cameras on the device. The Galaxy Fold 4 is also rumored to rely on five cameras, but this time two cameras will be under the display, at least according to one Korean leak that goes by the handle yeux1122.
This is another rumor that I hope is inaccurate (unless Samsung drastically improves its technology), as the Galaxy Fold 3’s under-display camera was its weakest link in terms of camera. According to afrom CNET’s Patrick Holland, indoor selfies taken with it looked “highly processed,” and outdoor shots in good lighting didn’t look much better.
Processor: The Galaxy Z Fold 4 may have a more powerful new chip from Qualcomm
Samsung’s next foldable phone could run on the newly announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. Ice universe. The is a faster and more energy-efficient version of the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in the Galaxy S22 series. It makes sense that a high-end phone like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 would have a more powerful chip. However, Samsung was not listed among the brands that will receive the new chip that Qualcomm mentioned when announcing the processor.
Otherwise, the Ice Universe leak suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a lot in common with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The new phone will reportedly have 12GB of RAM, options for 256GB or 512GB of storage, a 4,400mAh, 25W battery. fast charging.
Price: The price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is subject to change
Galaxy Z Fold 4 may have a different price than last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 3. According to celebrities Steve Hemmerstoffer phone leakknown on Twitter as OnLeaks, the for its 256GB model and 1,919 euros for its 512GB model. This base price is higher than the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which was launched for 1,695 euros. Pricing will likely vary by territory, but the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s starting price in the US was $1,800 for comparison.
This contrasts with the projection from April to analyst Ross YoungCEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who then announced that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 could see a price drop.
Despite being the most expensive phone Samsung released in 2021, the Fold 3 still saw a welcome drop in price compared to its predecessorand the original . The Fold 3 comes in the US with a starting price of $1,800, a welcome $200 price cut from the launch price of the Fold 2. In the UK, the Z Fold 3 starts at £1,599 for the 256GB variant, while in Australia it’s AU$2,499 . Scallop .
