There have been a lot of CAD renders going around on social media from Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Flip 4. These CAD renders piqued the interest of many people and have been vital in creating hype around the deviceeven though these CAD renders showed a design that was virtually identical to Galaxy Z Flip 3.
A tipster has now leaked the first unofficial images of the actual product that Samsung could send to buyers. TechTalkTV posted on Twitter a gallery of images showing the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in person. The device in question was the black variant. The leaked image suggests that the device has a matte glass top panel with glossy glass over the display part. The screen appears to be about the same size, but we can’t see the edges in any of these shots. Matte glass in particular wouldn’t be new to the series, as the Flip 3’s black variant was also matte, as were a few other colors.Image Credit: TechTalkTV Leaked images also suggest there will be a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. An interesting thing about the Galaxy Flip 4 is the newly designed hinge mechanism. Samsung is rumored to be tweaking the hinge design, but there doesn’t seem to be any visual changes to the side of the device. What we do see is that when fully open, the two halves of the Galaxy Flip 4 appear closer together than they do on the Galaxy Flip 3. The metal edge is also considerably thinner. In another video, some more details are touched upon. On the one hand, the crease of the screen is shown and, in this shot, it looks much improved over the existing model. It is thinner and much less noticeable.Image Credit: TechTalkTV The Galaxy Flip 4 is expected to run on a newer Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and will have more storage options compared to the Flip 3. The Flip 4 is also rumored to have a fold less noticeable on screen. The biggest update to the Galaxy Flip 4 will probably be the battery, which is expected to increase from 3,300 mAh to 3,700 mAh. Like the Flip 3 before it, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will likely arrive sometime in August 2022, and the price should be in the same $999 range. Via: FirstPost
