The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 could be shelved in stores sooner than we think if these leaks are anything to go by.
When is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 released date?
As reported by The Verge, all the talk within tech circles is around the Asian tech giant’s mysterious rollout of its staple foldable smartphone.
Driving the hype around the Z Flip 4’s release is phone enthusiast and veteran leaker Evan Blass, who teased a Samsung-branded poster that includes a date imposed over a blurry silhouette many have speculated to be the upcoming smart device.
While Samsung has yet to vet this information, Blass’ image leak, albeit captioned with “this image has been edited to obfuscate certain detail”, suggests that Apple‘s biggest competitor is preparing to host a product launch on Wednesday, 10 August 2022, with a slew of new releases on the cards, including:
- Galaxy Fold 4; and
- Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro
No official release dates for retail have yet been announced, but according to murmurs from Blass and The Verge, the upcoming products, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, could be available on shelves on Friday, 26 August 2022.
