Additionally, Samsung has already said that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will have more than 70 color combinations as part of its bespoke program. So you can definitely stand out in the crowd.
Another device we’ll see today Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2. How confident? Well, leaker Evan Blass has shared what he says are renders of the new ‘budsAnd they’re definitely real – so let’s say we’re sure about this one, too.
We haven’t seen many leaks of the Buds Pro 2 on Samsung’s phones or wearables, but we expect them to feature active noise cancellation (ANC), slightly longer battery life, and support for 24-bit audio. We think it will be the three colors that Mr Blass displayed above.
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the most exciting of the new models. We’ve seen quite a few leaks about it, the biggest (and most recent) being One from the German site WinFutureIt claims to come in at 45mm with a large 450 x 450 1.36-inch AMOLED display and a super-tough build, thanks to sapphire glass on the front and a titanium casing.
It is also said to have a beefy 590mAh battery – which should give you up to 80 hours of runtime on a single charge. Aha!
So far, we’ve focused on Samsung’s two new foldables — but expect more non-mobile devices to be introduced at Unpack today. That is, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 range and Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2.
Let’s start with the Watch 5. We consider last year’s Galaxy Watch 4 Best Android SmartwatchBut with Google Pixel Watch Come October, the new model will have to be even better to stay ahead of the competition.
Or, new Samples We expect three of them to be launched today in the form of the Standard Edition, the Classic and the new ‘Pro’ variant, as more should perform well.
Samsung has made a big deal about cameras over the past couple of years, so we expect that to continue with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. The Fold needs better camera hardware to help justify its higher price and the Flip. Needs some work on software and night photography.
Fortunately, Samsung has come a long way lately. We don’t expect the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Galaxy Z Flip 4 to make it to our list. Best camera phonesBut the Korean phone maker may surprise us this year.
Then there’s the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which has a lot of room for growth. First and foremost on our mind (again) is its battery life. In Tom’s Guide Battery life test, Galaxy Z Flip 3 Couldn’t even manage 6 hours at 5 hours 43 minutes. It is very sad.
We expect a bigger battery this year and will be more energy efficient Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. Together, these two make for a long-lasting Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Where should the Galaxy Z Fold 4 improve? Galaxy Z Fold 3? The first thing that comes to mind is battery life. our Custom battery life test, Galaxy Z Fold 3 Only managed 7 hours, 52 seconds. Smartphones average 10 hours.
Durability is a concern for foldables, so let’s hope the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is even more durable this time around. We’d also like to see improved camera hardware; It would be nice if the Galaxy Z Fold 4 was at least the same size Galaxy S22 Ultra.
What about the Galaxy Z Flip 4? It also has a leak. Standout specifications include a 6.7-inch foldable Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of 2640 x 1080 and a density of 425 pixels per inch and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Those are the same specs as the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but from the images it looks like the bezels around the screen are a little slimmer.
The external display is again expected to come in at 1.9 inches, with a resolution of 512 x 260. For durability, the cover panel uses Gorilla Glass Victus Plus. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 battery is set to be a 3,700 mAh cell (up from 3,300 mAh in the Flip 3).
What do we know about the Galaxy Z Fold 4? Well, thanks to the last-minute leaks, the lot. We fully expect the foldable to use the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor (say five times faster) and we’ve heard a new 50MP main camera. But A Amazon listing leaked 155.1 x 67.1 x 15.8 mm (or 6.1 x 2.64 x 0.62 inches) when folded (130.1 mm or 5.1 inches wide)
The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s front display is listed at 6.2 inches, the same as last year, but with an aspect ratio of 23.1:9 (slightly wider than the Z Fold 3) and the main 7.6-inch display is 21.6. :18. Both panels are said to have a 120Hz refresh rate.
