Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4: Retailer confirms pre-order dates, form factor change, weight reduction and display specifications
Amazon Netherlands has leaked the Galaxy Z Fold4, presenting the upcoming foldable in two variants. As the screenshots below show, the retailer has listed the smartphone with placeholder prices, both €10,167.05. Setting those placeholder prices aside, the two listings provide several details that have not leaked yet, as well as promotional materials that are reproduced in German, not Dutch.
Specifically, Amazon Netherlands highlights that the Galaxy Z Fold4 will come with 12 GB of RAM, regardless of whether you want 256 GB or 512 GB of storage. If the Galaxy Z Fold3 is anything to go by, then 12 GB of RAM will be the Galaxy Z Fold4's only RAM configuration. Additionally, Amazon Netherlands has not leaked a long-rumoured 1 TB variant, which does not necessarily rule out the release of a higher memory capacity this year. However, other leaks suggest that Samsung will not offer a 1 TB variant in Europe.
Moreover, Amazon Netherlands has confirmed that the Galaxy Z Fold4 will launch with a different form factor than its predecessor. For context, the Galaxy Z Fold3 measures 158.2 x 128.1 x 6.4 mm and 158.2 x 67.1 x 14.4-16 mm when folded. By contrast, the Galaxy Z Fold4 measures 155.1 x 130.1 mm when unfolded and 155.1 x 67.1 x 15.8 mm when folded. Still, the Galaxy Z Fold4 will offer 6.2-inch and 7.6-inch cover and primary displays, respectively. Both will be Dynamic AMOLED 2X displays with 120 Hz adaptive refresh rates, matching the Galaxy Z Fold3.
Furthermore, the listings confirm that the Galaxy Z Fold4 will weigh 263 g, down from 271 g with the Galaxy Z Fold3. Also, a separate image states that the Galaxy Z Fold4 will support the same S Pen Fold stylus as its predecessor. In other words, this accessory will remain unchanged from last year. Separately, Samsung will include a year's worth of Samsung Care+ with pre-orders, along with a €200 exchange bonus against trade-in devices. According to the same image, Samsung will open pre-orders on August 10, with the pre-order window spanning 15 days until August 25. Potentially, the latter date could be when Samsung starts shipping Galaxy Z Fold4 pre-orders, too.
