April Galaxy Themes Submission Window is Now Open
Samsung will host the first Galaxy Unpacked event of 2023 on February 1st, and that’s when we expect the Galaxy S23 series to make its debut. Of course, the new phone has already appeared online in the form of countless leaks, including an especially elaborate leak on Thursday featuring official marketing images from Samsung showcasing the Galaxy S23.
The leak from WinFuture’s Roland Quandt confirms virtually everything that we thought we knew about the Galaxy S23’s design. These images are purported official shots from Samsung — they aren’t mockups or renders from an artist with an inside source.
For now, WinFuture only has images of the base model Galaxy S23, not the Galaxy S23 Plus or Galaxy S23 Ultra. Those images reveal a device that looks strikingly similar to a Galaxy S22, with one significant change. Samsung has ditched the camera hump altogether after cycling through a few styles in recent years. Now, the camera lenses protrude directly out of the rear panel of every S23 model, as they did on the Galaxy S22 Ultra last year.
The leak also spoils the four color options of the Galaxy S23: Mystic Lilac, Cotton Flower, Botanic Green, and Phantom Black. Based on Samsung’s previous launches, we expect to see additional colors for the S23 Ultra and potentially even more down the line.

Image source: WinFuture Providing these are official marketing shots, they confirm the selfie camera will once again be positioned directly in the center of the display. The phone will be encased by a metal frame with a glass cover. The front and back of the phone are also completely flat.
WinFuture didn’t reveal any new details about the phone’s specifications, but we expect the Galaxy S23 to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, a 6.1-inch Full HD display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, a 3900 mAh battery, and Android 13.
Samsung will formally unveil the Galaxy S23 on February 1st at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.

This has been a rather busy week for smartphone leaks and announcements alike. Not only did Google reveal the Pixel 6a and Pixel 7 on Wednesday, but we also saw leaked renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Hours after he shared the Z Fold 4 leaks, Steve H. (@OnLeaks) returned with leaked renders of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4 as well.

Hemmerstoffer teamed up with frequent collaborator 91mobiles to share the Galaxy Z Flip 4 renders on Wednesday. Unlike the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4, which seems to feature a few design changes, the new Z Flip 4 looks virtually identical to its predecessor.
At a glance, you might not be able to tell the difference between these two phones. Like last year’s model, the Z Flip 4 will feature a 6.7-inch flexible display that folds in the center with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. On the back, the small cover screen once again sits next to the dual-camera setup at the top of the device.

The power button sits on the right side (and doubles as the fingerprint sensor) along with the volume rocker. None of these features or design elements are different from what Samsung brought to the table with the Z Flip 3 last August.
The design might be unchanged, but the phone will undoubtedly be more powerful than its predecessor. According to the leak, the Z Flip 4 will ship with Qualcomm’s more recent Snapdragon 888 Plus processor and a larger 3,700 mAh battery. Unfortunately, the two 12-megapixel rear cameras reportedly aren’t getting upgraded this year.
If you want an even better look at Samsung’s new foldable phone, 91mobiles published the following video showing it off alongside the leaked renders this week:
When is the Galaxy Z Flip 4 coming out?
Typically, Samsung hosts at least two Galaxy Unpacked events a year. The first Galaxy Unpacked of 2022 was in January, when the company unveiled the Galaxy S22 lineup as well as the Galaxy Tab S8 tablets. If Samsung sticks to the same schedule that it has for the past few years, the second event should come in August. Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, Watch 4, and Buds 2 last August. We expect a similar showing this August.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is three months from release, which explains why the number of leaks is increasing. And why we already have renders showing the purported Galaxy Z Fold 4 design. The new phone might resemble the previous version, but it won’t be identical to the Fold 3. That’s what several design leaks have told us so far, and the renders put that in perspective.
Even more interesting is a different design leak that indicates the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be a lot lighter than its predecessor. Not only that, but it will be lighter than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which has a traditional form factor.
Don't Miss: Wednesday’s deals: alli weight loss diet pills, rare Nintendo Switch deal, Ninja blenders, more One problem with foldable phones is that they’re thicker and heavier than traditional models. These are understandable drawbacks. A device like the Galaxy Fold becomes a small tablet when unfolded. That explains both the extra weight and the increased thickness when the handset is folded.
Reports so far have claimed that Samsung will employ a new hinge design that helps reduce the phone’s weight. Separately, Galaxy Z Fold 4 design leaks said the new foldable will have different proportions. It’ll be shorter and wider, so that the external display is easier to use.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 weight
Well-known insider Ice Universe has provided most of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 design details so far, and he’s back with new tidbits.
He said on Twitter that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be lighter than the iPhone 13 Pro Max when it’s in a case. That’s Apple’s best and largest iPhone so far, a device weighing 240 grams without a protective case.
In a separate tweet, the same leaker said the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will weigh less than 260 grams, without offering an exact figure. The weight detail implies that Samsung has altered the Fold 3 design to make the Fold 4 lighter.
Last year’s Fold model weighs 271 grams, which is pretty heavy for a smartphone. But, again, the nature of foldable designs forces such compromises right now.

Ice isn’t the only leaker out there detailing Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 design. OnLeaks and Smartprix partnered to release the first Galaxy Z Fold 4 renders (above and below).
Again, the Fold 4 will apparently resemble its predecessor. It’ll feature a large 7.6-inch foldable display and a 6.2-inch cover screen on the exterior. The inner display will have an under-panel camera, while the external screen will have a hole-punch camera.

We’re looking at 155 x 130 x 7.1 mm when unfolded. The Galaxy Z Fold 3’s unfolded size is 158.2 x 128.1 x 6.4 mm. Therefore, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be shorter and wider if these design details are accurate.
Finally, the renders suggest that the rear camera system will get a design change on the Galaxy Z Fold 4. We’re looking at three camera protrusions on the back rather than a single module. The new camera design resembles the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
That said, these are just rumors. No matter how accurate Samsung leaks tend to be, we’ll have to wait until August for Samsung to confirm everything.
