You know, in case all those other leaks weren’t enough for you
If you’re like us, you can’t wait for next week’s Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event. We’re not only expecting a brand new pair of professional earbuds, but also new sets of wearables and foldables, perfect for luring you away from the upcoming Pixel 7. While we’ve seen no shortage of leaks surrounding Samsung’s next foldable phone, there’s a big difference between them. official information from Samsung and online rumors. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait any longer for the first one, as an early listing for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is now live on Amazon’s UK website.
While it’s not marked as such in the title, one look at one of the attached press releases confirms the obvious: this offer is for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in all its glory, decked out in a golden beige and with a whopping 512 GB of storage. The folks at 9to5Google first saw the listing Friday afternoon and despite the obvious leak, it’s still live online and available for anyone to browse.
In addition to some new renderings of the phone, Amazon is showing off the exact screen sizes for the Z Fold 4. The outer screen is a 6.2″ display with a 23.1:9 aspect ratio, while the inner screen is a massive panel of 7.6″ measure. inside at 21.6:18. Both screens are technically the same dimensions as last year’s model, but with wider aspect ratios. We also get exact measurements for the phone’s body, so start measuring your pockets now – it’s not much smaller than before. When folded, it’s just as wide as before, and while 15.8mm isn’t quite as bulky when closed as last year’s hinge, it’s still quite thick.
Unsurprisingly, the rest of the images highlight some of the best reasons to buy a foldable: advanced multitasking and large screens. Split screen is specifically shown, as is a new taskbar that runs along the bottom of the screen. While these gadgets are unlikely to ship with Android 13 and One UI 5, it’s clear that Samsung is leaning on some of the improvements Google brought to the table earlier this year with Android 12L for large screens.
This post also confirms S Pen support – no surprise there – and while we’ll have to settle for an external stylus, this year’s case moves the tool to the back of the phone. We’ll have to hold it in our hand to see if that’s any better than last year’s removable hinge slot. It looks like this piece could come off the case just like the previous model, but at the moment it’s not entirely clear how it works. There is one good news here: color matching for the S Pen. Goodbye, boring black accessories. And get well soon.
