Galaxy Z Fold 4

Galaxy Z Fold 3 It’s almost a year old, so it’s arguably due for an update — and Samsung’s own Unpacked teasers indicate that one is coming. With that said, we wouldn’t expect the Z Fold 4 to represent a major change. If the leaks are correct, the new model will represent a refinement of the marquee foldable.

the images provided shared by OnLeaks and Smartprix, With all Evan Blass and 91mobilesSuggestions suggest the Galaxy Z will combine the phone-slash-tablet formula of the Fold 4 series with design elements S22 Ultra, You’ll get rear camera bumps and slightly tweaked dimensions like the Ultra, but it will otherwise look very familiar. Not that we would rule out functional changes. leaker ice universe claims For example, the Z Fold 4 will have less prominent display creases.

If predictable, performance upgrades may be more significant. Eminent Licker Yogesh Brar They say Z Fold 4 will use the new Snapdragon 8+ Generation 1 The chip is paired with either 12GB or 16GB of RAM. You’ll notice an upgraded 50-megapixel main rear camera as well as a very sharp 16-megapixel under-display inside the cam. You can expect the familiar 12MP ultra-wide and 3X zoom sensors on the back, and a 10MP external selfie shooter. However, there is controversy regarding storage. While Barr says the Z Fold 4 will start with 256GB of space, Evan Blass has discovered In terms of the 128GB version.

That storage question could affect the price. While YouTuber John Prosser and others to accept With the Galaxy Z Fold 4 arriving in stores on August 26, it is unclear how much the device will cost. The starting price of the 128GB variant may be lower than that $1,800 of his predecessor. Don’t expect a higher capacity than last year when storage options over 512GB are not mentioned.

Galaxy Z Flip 4

There’s even less mystery for the next Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung’s teaser video for the Unpacked event very clearly shows a new version of the clamshell phone, so it’s really just a question of what the Z Flip 4 will offer compared to its predecessor.

Don’t expect a major redesign. If OnLeaks and Evan Blass’s images (as well as a TechTalk TV video removed) are accurate, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is virtually a carbon copy of the Flip 3 with identical rear cameras, a slightly larger external display, and different colors. This is not necessarily a problem, but if you are looking for a brand new look then it can prove to be disappointing. The Fold 4’s less obvious screen creasing could also go further.

According to rumours, the under-the-hood upgrade will be more subtle than the Fold 4. Yogesh Bara claims The Z Flip 4 will make the leap to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, but will still include 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of non-expandable storage, and a 6.7-inch 120Hz display. However, you’ll get a bigger 3,700mAh battery (compared to the 3,300mAh in the Flip 3) and 25W of charging (versus 15W), so the Flip 4 can last longer. The dual 12MP rear cameras and 10MP selfie cameras of the previous phones will be carried over to the new model.

Samsung usually releases new Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold models around the same time, and Prosser has heard that the Flip 4, like its higher-end counterpart, will hit stores on August 26. If so, cost may remain the only secret. There is no certainty that the Flip 4 will live with its ancestor $999 worth. If there’s a 128GB model, though, we wouldn’t expect the latest device to be more expensive, if at all.

Galaxy Watch 4 Marked the revival of Samsung’s smartwatch strategy with its Switch Wear OS more attractive design, The company may be keen to keep that momentum going, as there are indications that it is preparing the Galaxy Watch 5 family with some notable tweaks.

If 91mobiles, shared presenter Let’s be honest, Samsung will abandon its high-end Classic model in favor of the more modern-looking (if still posh) Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. You might not get the sharp bezels of previous smartwatches, but the Pro will upgrade from a steel case to a lightweight-but-sturdy titanium. Samsung Unknowingly Pro name indicated In its health app, however, it did not provide further clues.

The regular Galaxy Watch 5 won’t be as big of a departure. You can expect the same minimalist, fitness-oriented design as before. Sammobile Ongoing There is a rumor that the wristwatch will have a 10 percent bigger battery than its year-old counterpart, but it is unknown whether it will turn into a longer-lasting watch. It is still unclear whether Samsung will implement a new processor or body sensor that could affect the battery life.

You may have to pay more than you expected. Vin BhavishyaK Rowland Quandty heard in june That the regular Galaxy Watch 5 will start around €300 (about $306) for the 40mm Bluetooth mode and top out at €400 ($409) for the 44mm LTE unit.
