Galaxy Z Fold 4 isn’t even out and Samsung’s Fold 5 specs are leaking


Recommended Posts

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 next month. New rumors claim the Unpacked press conference will take place on August 10th, which is in line with expectations. Everything but the price has leaked, so we know what to expect from the upcoming Samsung foldable flagships. New Galaxy flagships usually leak several months ahead of their launches, including new foldables. But, in an unexpected twist, the Fold 5’s key specs have leaked with more than a year to go until it’s ready for release. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC that should be launched later this year and a 50-megapixel camera.

What to expect from the Galaxy Z Fold 4

It’s easy to speculate on a foldable Android flagship like the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The handset should deliver a familiar design. Moreover, the Fold 5 specs will be on par with other 2023 Android high-end phones.

We don’t expect significant changes for the Fold 5 design, given what Samsung is doing with Fold 4. The handset has appeared in various leaks, and we know it’ll look just like its predecessor.

Samsung is changing the aspect ratio so users can operate the Fold 4 better when folded. The phone should also feature a new hinge mechanism that will help Samsung reduce the overall weight. The Fold 4 will also be at least as durable as its predecessor, despite the weight and size changes.

As for the specs, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will run on Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon System-on-Chip (SoC) flagship, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1.

Thankfully, there reportedly won’t be an Exynos 2200 variant of the phone. Therefore, buyers don’t have to worry about performance issues similar to the Galaxy S22.

The Fold 4 should also deliver an improved camera experience with a 50-megapixel primary camera, 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and 10-megapixel telephoto camera. The Fold 4 will also feature a 4-megapixel selfie camera hidden under the foldable display. A secondary 10-megapixel selfie camera punches through the outer display.

Other specs include 12GB of RAM, 128GB of base storage (going up to 1TB), 4,400 mAh battery, and 25W fast-charging.

The Fold 5 specs leak

With that in mind, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will likely pack the same overall design as its predecessors, although it’s probably too early for design leaks. But a Korean report mentions the phone’s main specs about a year earlier than expected.

According to The Elec, the Fold 5 specs will include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC that Qualcomm will launch later this year. That’s the kind of guess any Android fan can make, however. The report also mentions specs details for the cameras.

The Fold 5 will reportedly pack Samsung’s Isocell GN3 50-megapixel wide camera. The GN3 sensor features 1.0μm pixels. Meanwhile, the selfie camera will feature a 12-megapixel sensor. These should both be upgrades over the Fold 3 and Fold 4 cameras. But this year’s model will also have a 50-megapixel primary camera.

The report doesn’t mention additional Fold 5 specs, focusing instead on Samsung’s overall strategy for the 2023 foldable market.

The Elec says Samsung is aiming to sell 10 million Fold 5 and Flip 5 units next year. Only 2 million of those are expected to be Fold 5 units. That seems like a healthy figure for the company, which continues to be the primary beneficiary of foldable phone sales after the success of the Fold 3 and Flip 3.

But the 10 million figure is actually lower than this year’s expected Samsung foldable phone sales. Samsung apparently wants to sell 15 million foldable phones this year. But the company expects demand to drop significantly in 2023.

Also, the ongoing war in Ukraine will continue to impact the prices of commodities. Plus, the resurgence of COVID-19 is another thing to worry about. Combined with worries about the economy and a recession, these factors might reduce demand for all sorts of goods, foldable phones included.

      After the Galaxy S22 series blunders, Samsung assuredly can’t wait to release a traditional smartphone that consumers can actually get excited about. Add to that the incredible iPhone 14 Pro sales and Apple’s manufacturing issues in China, and Samsung has plenty of reasons to launch the Galaxy S23 series as quickly as possible next year.
      A report from Korea says the launch event will take place in the US in early February. But we don’t have an actual date for the event yet.
      We’ve always expected the Galaxy S23 series to hit stores in the first quarter of 2023 after a two-week preorder period. That’s been Samsung’s strategy in recent years. But this is the first time that a more specific launch window has leaked this early.
      According to Korean media, an unnamed Samsung executive confirmed the launch period.
      “The S23 series will be shown during our own Unpacked event in the United States, which will be held in February,” the person said. They didn’t mention a date or city, but local media said the Galaxy S23 launch event would take place in San Francisco in the first week of the month.
      February 1st falls on a Wednesday next year. If the claim is accurate, Samsung will launch the handset by Sunday, February 5th. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S22 on February 9th.
      Galaxy S23 Plus renders reveal redesign. Image source: @OnLeaks/Smartprix The Galaxy S23 could hit stores before the 2023 edition of the Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona on February 27th. MWC was once the home of the Galaxy S launch event. But in recent years, Samsung moved away from the big Spanish mobile show.
      The report notes that the Galaxy S23 series might be more expensive. But the good news is that Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will power all Galaxy S23 models. This should prevent any performance issues similar to the Galaxy S22 series.
      Galaxy S22 issues aside, Samsung’s mobile business isn’t doing great compared to Apple’s iPhone. Samsung handset sales fell 11% last month, according to the report. Apple’s iPhone sales rose by 10% as the company launched the iPhone 14.
      Demand for the iPhone 14 Pro remains high in December, as Apple is dealing with massive COVID-related production issues in China that have further delayed shipments. An early Galaxy S23 launch might help Samsung take advantage of that.
      Samsung has yet to announce anything officially. Invites for the Galaxy S23 media event should go out in January if the early February launch event claim is accurate.

      The Galaxy S23 series that Samsung will launch in the first quarter of next year should feature satellite communications support, just like Apple’s iPhone 14 and Huawei’s Mate 50 series. While a report says that Samsung has been developing the feature for a couple of years, Samsung is still following Apple’s lead in the industry. But if there was one feature every Android vendor should copy, it’s support for satellite communications for emergencies.
      In September, Apple announced support for satellite communications for the entire iPhone 14 lineup, but the feature just rolled out a few days ago. iPhone 14 owners can test the feature to see how Emergency SOS over satellite works. Unlike Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, the iPhone 14’s satellite connectivity will only work in case of emergency.
      Specifically, people in distress who can’t connect to Wi-Fi or a cellular network to call emergency services will be able to text them via satellite. The iPhone 14 lets users share their location with loved ones when they’re off the grid.
      According to ET News, Samsung is working with satellite communication company Iridium, which has 66 low-orbit satellites around the planet. The plan is to provide voice and data communication services.
      Samsung has been developing the feature for a couple of years, looking to overcome the difficulties associated with satellite communications. The company reportedly wants to transmit text messages and low-resolution images over satellite. This would be an upgrade over what the iPhone 14 can do.
      The biggest challenge is miniaturizing a satellite antenna to fit inside a smartphone like the Galaxy S23. Voice and high-speed data communication over satellite require large antennas. These are features that aren’t coming to smartphones anytime soon.

Even though Samsung appears to have bigger goals for satellite communications, it should still replicate the iPhone 14’s primary use for the technology. Adding satellite support to a phone for emergency services would be a welcome first step toward bringing more sophisticated satellite communication to smartphones.
      The report says that Samsung should release its satellite communication products in the near future due to pressure from Apple and Huawei. Therefore, flagship phones like the Galaxy S23 series should be the first to support the technology. Still, it’s too early for Samsung to talk about these initiatives. An official refused to confirm or deny the feature.
      Samsung should unveil the Galaxy S23 series in February or March.

      The iPhone’s A-series System-on-Chip (SoC) is the mobile processor that sets the tone in the mobile industry. We’ve been waiting for years for rivals to come up with a decent alternative, and we might finally have one. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that will power 2023 Android phones like the Galaxy S23 series might deliver a great challenge to the A16 Bionic inside the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
      Qualcomm’s newest flagship processor will power every Samsung Galaxy S23 variant. Moreover, the silicon Samsung is getting might be exclusive to the S23 series. Whatever the case, the base Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip already looks impressive. The first Geekbench 5 benchmarks indicate that the processor can almost match Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro.
      Geekbench 5 is a popular benchmark tool that provides scores for single-core and multi-core CPU performance. The benchmark tool also covers GPU performance. We’ve been looking at these scores for years, and brand-new SoCs appear on the benchmark site long before the launch of commercial products.
      The iPhone 14 Pro Max scored 1884 (single-core) and 5431 in a recent test. That might be a modest but notable performance bump over the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 and affordable iPhone 14. But it’s still well above what other 2022 flagship smartphones can offer. For example, the Pixel 7 Pro is no match for the iPhone 14 Plus.
      The Galaxy S23 launch might be several months away, but we’ll see other Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered phones before then. The Vivo X90 Pro+ is one such device. Well-known Samsung insider Ice Universe posted Geekbench scores for the handset, revealing the new SoC can reach 1462 in single-core tests and 5182 in multi-core tests.
      The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 can almost match the iPhone 14 Pro’s performance in single-core and multi-core tests. The future Galaxy S23 chip outscores the iPhone 14 Plus in multi-core performance but still can’t match the single-core scores.
      Geekbench 5 benchmark scores: Vivo X90 Pro+ Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 vs. iPhone 14 Pro Max A16 Bionic. Image source: Geekbench With that in mind, the same leaker also teased the Galaxy S23s massive performance and efficiency gains.
      Ice Universe noted that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powering the Galaxy S23 will deliver 45% multi-core gains over the Galaxy S22’s Exynos 2200 in European and Korean Galaxy S22 units. When it comes to GPU performance, he teased 60% improvements over the Exynos 2200, plus energy efficiency gains of up to 88%.
      It’ll be interesting to see the actual Galaxy S23 benchmarks, which have yet to leak. If rumors are true, the 2023 Samsung phones will get an exclusive SoC variant that’s optimized even better. That means the handsets might score even higher in benchmarks than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 variant in the Vivo phone.

      Qualcomm confirmed the Galaxy S23 series would run on its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor even before launching the new System-on-Chip (SoC). The processor is now official, as Qualcomm unveiled the next-gen flagship SoC that will power future Android devices this week.
      While we’ll have to wait until next year for the Galaxy S23, an exciting rumor is already swirling. An insider claims that not only will every Galaxy S23 model have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, but Samsung might receive an exclusive version of the chip for the S23.
      Well-known Samsung leaker Ice Universe said on Twitter that the Galaxy S23 series might have a different Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip than flagships from other Android vendors.
      The move wouldn’t necessarily be surprising. After all, Qualcomm and Samsung inked a massive chip deal a few months ago after the Galaxy S22 chip disappointment. Samsung’s Exynos 2200 turned out to be a colossal failure that forced Samsung to change its chip strategy.
      But Ice Universe looked at early benchmark results for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. He discovered that Samsung’s Galaxy S23 chip might run at a higher frequency than other Gen 2 SoCs.
      Furthermore, he found different model numbers for the same chip. This indicates that Qualcomm might be making several Gen 2 variants that would meet the needs of various clients.
      Finally, the leaker said it’s confirmed that the Galaxy S23 will feature an exclusive Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor next year, posting another Geekbench score.
      Like Korean Samsung Galaxy S-series buyers, Europeans always used to get the Exynos-powered version of the latest flagship. It’s what happened with the Galaxy S22 series this year. The Exynos 2200 throttling problems were discovered in Korea but also impacted buyers in the EU.
      It doesn’t matter if Samsung gets a custom Gen 2 chip inside the Galaxy S23. All the new Snapdragon 8 has to do is offer performance, efficiency, and stability that’s slightly better than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus that powers Samsung’s 2022 foldables to be a winner.
      The Samsung insider also noted that his Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 specs leak was accurate. But you don’t need leaks any longer to understand what the next-gen flagship SoC can bring to mobile phones. We’ve covered Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 launch at this link.
