Just hours after we bought our first glimpse on the potential design of Samsung’s Z Fold 4, unofficial renders of its smaller sibling — the Z Flip 4 — have additionally leaked via 91Mobiles and OnLeaks. But whereas the subsequent Fold may get a redesigned digital camera bump, the Z Flip 4’s design seems virtually equivalent to its predecessor. Externally it nonetheless has a two-tone colour scheme with a pair of cameras and small notification show, whereas inside there’s nonetheless a 6.7-inch foldable show with a hole-punch selfie cutout within the prime center.
That’s not essentially a lot of a shock, neither is it undoubtedly a unhealthy factor. Samsung adopted up its first Z Flip with the almost-identical (*4*) simply months later, so it’s already proved it’s glad to replace the internals of its foldables with out altering their exterior look. And since we have been pretty impressed by last year’s Z Flip 3 (“the first folding phone for normal people”) an instantaneous design overhaul doesn’t really feel important, even when we wouldn’t say no to a barely bigger exterior show.
If Samsung is planning for its subsequent Z Flip to be a spec bump, we hope that its specs really get a first rate increase. The rear cameras are in most want of enchancment, which have been each 12-megapixel final time round at a time when Samsung’s comparatively priced flagship Galaxy S units are getting 50-megapixel principal sensors and better. Expect an official announcement in August, if Samsung follows the same schedule as last year.
