The wait is probably not long for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, as it looks like both devices will be unveiled on August 10.
At least, a 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 features what appears to be a blurry photo of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 next to 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 forms, we’d fully expect it 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.
GadgetMasti will of course cover the launch event in full when it happens, but you should also be able to tune in to a live stream if you wish. That is usually the case and this teaser image specifically mentions that the event will be live on Samsung.com.
Analysis: August 10 seems very likely
If this was the only evidence of an August 10 announcement, we’d think there’s a good chance it was correct. After all, Blass is a very reputable leaker and the image shared looks convincing enough.
But there are also other signs pointing to August 10. For starters, Jon Prosser – a leaker with a more mixed but generally solid track record – had previously said we’d be seeing the 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 they were announced – although 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, 2021, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 line, so a date somewhere around that time was always likely this year.
So it looks like our best foldable phones, best Samsung phones, and best smartwatches guides will all be getting a shakeup soon.
