Samsung will hold the Galaxy Unpacked 2022 event next week to uncover the new gen foldable smartphones – Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Ahead of the launch, we witnessed several leaks and rumors that exposes smartphones in many ways. Now the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, and Z Flip 4 cases appear online.
It looks like the company has brought back the last generation’s “Silicone Cover with Strap” for the upcoming phones. The Flip 4 cover has a strap that goes from the top portion of the case through a loop at the bottom that allows the fabric to move and tighten when it is closed.
There are two color options for the Flip 4 case – the black one comes with a green strap, while the white version has an orange strap. Both come in around $37.
As far as Galaxy Z Fold 4 is considered, the looks to be introducing a similar strap case for this smartphone as well. Again, it has two color options – the black variant has a green strap, while the white one comes in an orange strap. It comes in around $45.
Aside from these two Starp cases, Samsung also appears to bring Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 cases with Ring, named Flap Leather Cover and the Clear Cover. The Fold 4 also has a Slim Standing Cover, which seems affable for bracing the phone as a tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked August 2022
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be held on August 10. Aside from the new foldable phones, new wearables such as Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are also the main highlights of the event.
We will also see two new custom OS versions – Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 and Wear OS 3.5-based One UI Watch 4.5. Here’s how to watch the event live.
Have early look at future Galaxy Rollable/Slidable by Samsung!
After foldables, Samsung appears to be focussing on an even more futuristic kind of Galaxy smartphone, which can be defined as Rollable or Slidable. This type of flexible display can be rolled inside to reduce the size of the smartphone, while it can also be expanded back to provide a bigger viewing area.
The same Samsung again showcased the recent display exhibition in South Korea, which gives yet another confirmation for its future Slidable or Rollable display smartphone.
Entitled Flex OLED, it is the South Korean tech giant’s most astonishing next-gen product that folds up into an ‘S’ shape or that fold twice inward with two hinges, folding laptops, and slidable expanded from both sides.
In the concept video shared by Samsung, we can see a prototype slidable display smartphone that has an expandable display that can be enlarged vertically, providing a larger viewfinder for the consumers.
Check the video below.

Samsung Display is progressively experimenting and developing the organic OLED display for various display devices such as TVs, computers, Laptops, and present-day smartphones.
As of now, we don’t have any official information regarding Samsung’s plans for rollable/slideable display smartphones. As the company has showcased prototypes earlier, it’s obviously confirmed that there will surely be rollable phones launching in near future.
Samsung Galaxy S23/S23+ to feature old design, camera, and wider bezels
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at its mid-year Unpacked, and all of our eyes are on the next Unpacked which will bring the Galaxy S23 series. Ahead of the release, tipster IceUniverse shared important information that suggests the Galaxy S23 and S23+ won’t get a new design, camera and display.
According to the tipster, the design, camera, screen and resolution of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ smartphones will be identical to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+, respectively. At the same time, the source claimed that the bezels of all three models including S23 Ultra will be a little wider, which doesn’t make sense.
The tipster didn’t talk about the design and camera specs of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is rumored to be packed with a giant 200MP ISOCELL HP2 lens. However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumored to come with wider bezels, which could be Samsung’s durability expansion decision.
Galaxy S22, S22+
The Galaxy S22 features a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with up to 1300 nits (peak) brightness, 87.4% screen-to-body ratio, and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. The Galaxy S22+, on the other hand, comes with 6.6 inches Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with 1750 nits (peak) brightness and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution.
Samsung might launch the Galaxy S23 series smartphones in early 2023, most possibly in February. The lineup will include three models the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. The top variant of this lineup is rumored to feature an unreleased 200MP primary camera sensor.

Samsung confirms 4 Android updates for Galaxy A52s, but, don’t be happy!
Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is undoubtedly a flagship-grade smartphone with powerful performance, thanks to its Snapdragon 778G processor. Similar to the Galaxy A52/A72, Samsung promised 3 major Android updates to Galaxy A52s 5G, however, the manager of its UK Twitter account just confirmed 4 updates, which is not valid.
Twitter user Jon Crawford shared the information that his Galaxy A52s smartphone just got the August 2022 security patch to praise Samsung’s support. Following the Tweet, Samsung UK comes up and thanked the user and further reminded him that the A52s support up to 5 years of security updates.
As a regular Twitter post become a thread of official communication, another user Medbuddy asked Samsung about the Android OS updates support for the Galaxy A52s 5G. Samsung UK didn’t stop and accidentally confirmed 4 generations of Android updates for the Galaxy A52s and embedded the newsroom post of the new policy.
Firstly, we’ve rechecked the software updates support of the Galaxy A52s on Samsung’s website, which still promises 3 updates, then we headed for the 4 OS guarantee press release to check if the manufacturer made amendments in the list of devices, but, it’s the same as day one.
According to the information mentioned in the policy, Samsung won’t bring 4 Android updates to the Galaxy A52s smartphone as this guideline applies to the Galaxy A53/A73 and select models that will launch in the future. At the same time, flagships starting the Galaxy S21 series are also listed for the same support.
Due to a lack of information, Samsung UK appears to be doing fake promises to the consumers which are disappointing. We hope, that this mistake will be solved as soon as our voice reaches Samsung’s ears, meanwhile, we would be happy if the Galaxy A52s 5G becomes eligible for 4 OS updates.
Great question! The A52s will receive four generations of Android OS updates! You can read more about this here: https://t.co/baCrxumW9S ^RR
