There’s probably not much to look forward to for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 as it looks like both handsets will be unveiled on August 10th.
At least one leaked teaser image shared by Evan Blass (opens in new tab) – a leaker with a great track record – points strongly in that direction.
The image includes what appears to be a blurry image 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 often calls its big launch events.

There’s no sign of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, but based on the previous form, we’d expect it to arrive at the same time. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are also likely to arrive at this event, so August 10th could be a busy day for Samsung fans and tech journalists.
Of course, will cover the launch event in full whenever it happens, but you can also tune in to a live stream if you wish. That tends to be the case and this teaser image specifically mentions that the event will be live on Samsung.com.
Analysis: August 10th looks highly likely
If this were the only evidence of an August 10th announcement, we would think there is a high chance that it is accurate. After all, Blass is a very respectable leaker, and the shared image looks convincing enough.
But there are also other signs pointing to August 10th. For one, Jon Prosser – a leaker with a more mixed but generally solid track record – had previously said that would be when we would see Flip 4 and Fold 4.
For what it’s worth, Prosser also claims that both handsets will hit stores on August 26, just over two weeks after the announcement – although pre-orders apparently open immediately.
And that’s not all. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 were revealed on August 11, 2021, along with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 lineup, so a date around that year was always likely.
So it looks like our best folding phones, best Samsung phones, and best smartwatch guides might be getting a change soon.
