There’s probably not long to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, as it looks as though both handsets will be unveiled on August 10.
At least, the leaked teaser image shared by Evan Blass (opens in new tab) – a leaker with a great track record – strongly points in that direction.
The image includes what appears to be a blurred picture of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 alongside the August 10 date. It also mentions that this will be a Galaxy Unpacked event, which is what Samsung usually calls its big launch events.

There’s no sign of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 but based on past form we’d fully expect that to land at the same time. It’s also likely that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will land at this event, so August 10 could be a busy day for Samsung fans and tech journalists.
will of course cover the launch event in full whenever it does happen, but you should also be able to tune into a live stream if you’d like. That tends to be the case and this teaser image specifically mentions that the event will be live on Samsung.com.
Analysis: August 10 highly likely looks
If this was the only evidence of an August 10 announcement we’d think there’s a high chance it was accurate. After all, Blass is a very reputable leaker, and the shared image looks convincing enough.
But there are other signs pointing to August 10, as well. For one thing, Jon Prosser – a leaker with a more mixed but generally solid track record – had previously said that would be when we’d see the Flip 4 and Fold 4.
For what it’s worth, Prosser also claims that both of these handsets will hit stores on August 26, just over two weeks after they’re announced – though pre-orders will apparently open immediately.
And that’s not all. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 were unveiled on August 11 of 2021, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 line, so a date sometime around then this year was always likely.
So, it looks like our best foldable phones, best Samsung phones, and best smartwatches guides could all be getting a shake-up soon.
