Our focus has been on Google I/O and the upcoming hardware. This is thanks to Google I/O. We shouldn’t forget about Samsung, though, as their next set of devices should be here within the next few months as well.
Two notable leakers provided specs lists for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 over the weekend. These lists are very similar, with some differences that might prove to be more important for some than others.
The first list was compiled by Yogesh Brar, who believes we’ll get the following in the Galaxy Z Fold 4:
- Inner Display: 7.6″ QXGA+ AMOLED, 120Hz
- Cover Display: 6.2″ HD+ AMOLED, 120Hz
- Processor: Snapdragon8+ Gen 1 SoC
- RAM: RAM 12/16GB RAM
- Storage: 256/512GB
- Rear Camera 50MP + 12MP(UW) +12MP (3x).
- Inner Camera 16MP (UD).
- Cover Camera: 10MP
- Software: Android 12 OneUI
- 4.400mAh battery, 25W charging
One day later, Ice Universe chimed in with a “100% accurate” Galaxy Z Fold 4 specs list that featured a couple of tweaks:
- RAM: Only 12GB RAM
- Rear Camera: 10MP3x (not 12MP).
- Inner Camera: 4MP (not16MP)
So to clarify, we’ve got an almost-identical list outside of the potential for up to 16GB RAM and higher resolution inside and rear cameras. These are minor differences to my mind, but perhaps one of yours thinks that 16GB RAM is going make more than 12GB. I think we’d all take higher resolution cameras, too.
Overall, though, these specs look far too similar to last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 3, outside of the change in the chipset to the newest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and a main 50MP camera. Other than that, displays, storage and software are the same.
Here’s to hoping Samsung has slimmed up the body more than we think and found a magic new hinge to win us over. If not, well, I can’t imagine this device changing my thoughts from last year’s model.
