Leaked event invite reveals the launch date for Samsung’s next-gen foldables
Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen plenty of leaks about Samsung’s next-gen foldables — the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The leaks have revealed quite a few details about the devices and even given us an early look at the affordable model. While Samsung has yet to make official announcements about the two foldables, a new leak reveals that the company could launch the devices early next month.
The leak in question comes from noted leaker Evan Blass, who recently shared renders of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. It’s an image of the launch invite for the upcoming foldables, confirming that Samsung will host an event on August 10 to unveil the devices. The image includes a silhouette of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, but it doesn’t reveal anything about the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Blass notes that the image has been edited to obfuscate certain details, but we have no info on the removed details.
