While you might be waiting for the next Samsung Galaxy S23, enthusiasts of the best foldable phones are also in for a treat, according to a new rumor.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 (yes, the name is incredibly long) has been on the radar for a while now, following the success of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, which improved on some pretty obvious weaknesses of the first-gen Z Fold. .
And the latest news from South Korea is that Samsung will, starting this year, double down on its Fold and Flip foldables, making news about them even more interesting.
As for the new rumor, according to reliable display analyst Ross Young, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will come in a surprise new color: Dark Red. Well, I think a dark red Galaxy Z Fold 4 is going to look awesome – so premium and luxurious.
As I told my Super Followers yesterday, the Fold 4 will now have limited volumes in Dark Red. Today I told them who the supplier of the Apple Watch 1.99″ panel was…July 7, 2022
Now, Young previously shared that the Z Fold 4 will also be available in beige, black, and gray when it arrives, possibly at Samsung’s Unpacked event, scheduled for August. But now it looks like there will be another color.
Adding a fourth color would be a bit unusual for Samsung, which typically limits its devices to three available colors, but the Z Fold 4 is an ultra-premium device, so it may be making an exception. Also, it’s worth pointing out that the South Korean company’s other foldable, the Flip, comes in a wide variety of colorways.
Where we saw a dark red colorway introduced recently, however, was in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which got a dark red colorway at launch. Is Samsung moving that same colorway to the Fold 4 which shows it’s its flagship device? There is truth in what we think.
If Samsung can now bring its Bespoke Studio functionality to the Fold, the ability to customize the frame and every panel of the phone with myriad color options, then we’ll be very happy here at Q3.
Unveil the future
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to be unveiled next month at a Samsung Unpacked event.
Rumors suggest the Z Fold 4 will be expensive, costing around £1,599 for the base model, but that’s still slightly below the cost of the Z Fold 3 at launch.
The Z Fold 4 is expected to have a 7.6-inch QXGA+ AMOLED primary display, paired with a 6.2-inch secondary display. Camera and battery upgrades are also expected. There might even be a 1TB option this time around too.
We’ll keep you posted over the coming month on any new Galaxy Z Fold 45 rumors, so check back to Q3 soon for more.
