When announcing the unpacked event for the new Z foldables, a well-known leaker beat Samsung to it. He shared the official invitation, which also shows the date of the event, on Twitter. According to the invitation, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4 on August 10th.
Well-known leaker Evan Blass ( @evleaks ) just couldn't keep the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 launch date to himself. On Twitter he posted an official picture with the date of the unpacked event. A blurred render image of the Galaxy Z Flip4 can also be seen in the image. Samsung has now had the picture removed on Twitter, but that was no longer able to prevent it from spreading quickly.

Sales start probably from August 26th
However, Evan Blass is not the first to reveal August 10 as the date for the unpacked event. Fellow leaker Jon Prosser appeared to have known the date of the event a month ago, Android Authority writes. However, there was probably no official invitation from Samsung at that time.
According to Prosser , pre-orders for the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 should already start at the launch event on August 10th. The two foldables should then come onto the market on August 26th. According to the leaker, the Fold4 will be available in Phantom Black, Green, and Beige colors, while the Flip4 will be available in Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Blue.
Since Prosser was already correct in predicting the unpacked event, his other information could also be correct.
Hardly any details about the hardware of the foldables are known so far
There is currently no officially confirmed information about the hardware of the two foldables. It is almost certain that the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 will be used in both folding smartphones. The Galaxy Z Flip4 is rumored to offer a slightly larger battery than its predecessor. The Galaxy Z Fold4 is said to be available for the first time in a variant with 128 GB of internal memory.
