Yesterday, we reported on the first rumors about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 (opens in new tab) and noted these were even earlier than normal as Samsung had yet to unveil their predecessors.
Well, now it looks like their won’t be long to wait for that, according to a convincing looking leaked teaser image, shared on Twitter by Evan Blass (opens in new tab), who is a leaker with a great track record. The image comprises of an image of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which Blass has blurred out, alongside the August 10 date.

The teaser mentions that August 10 will be a Galaxy Unpacked event, and as these usually see Samsung launch several products, we also expect the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro launch then too. Although the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 (opens in new tab) isn’t pictured on the teaser, from monitoring Samsung’s announcement patterns, we fully expect it to launch at the same time as the Galaxy Z Flip 4. August 10 looks like a big day for Samsung.
Blass isn’t the only leaker to hail August 10 as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 announcement date – last month another leaker, Jon Prosser (opens in new tab), said that would be when we’d see the Galaxy Flip 4 and Fold 4, too.

Prosser also said pre-orders will open immediately and that the new smartphones will hit the shops on August 26. When we look back at the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, these flip phones were unveiled on August 11 2021, making the leakers’ claims even more likely to be true as manufacturers do tend to follow launch patterns.
