Galaxy Z Fold 4 tipped to follow the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a built-in S Pen

Samsung is doubling down on the S Pen this year.

What you need to know

  • A report indicates the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will include a built-in S Pen slot.
  • The report says the display will be slightly larger than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
  • The Galaxy Z Flip 4 may have a slightly larger external display.

Given that we're already six months since the launch of Samsung's best foldable phones, it seems that rumors for the next generation are due. The latest includes some exciting information about the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which will follow after the Galaxy S22 Ultra in the best way possible.

According to a report from The Elec, the upcoming large-screen foldable will feature a slot for Samsung's iconic S Pen, similar to the S22 Ultra and the Galaxy Note series. This would differ from the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which gained support for the S Pen but kept it as an optional accessory you would need to buy along with a case to hold it with.

Given the evolution of Samsung's Ultra lineup adjacent to the Z Fold, it would make sense for Samsung to include a built-in slot on its upcoming foldable. That said, this could risk the possibility of the price remaining similarly high for the Z Fold 4 as Samsung seeks to further improve the device's durability.

Additionally, The Elec reports that the internal display will measure at 7.56-inches, or a hair larger than the Z Fold 3's 7.55-inch display. However, the external display will be ever-so-slightly small at 6.19-inches versus 6.20-inches.

Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, seems to corroborate the display sizes:

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will reportedly have the same internal display as its predecessor. In contrast, the external display will be a bit larger at 1.9-inches, versus 1.83-inches on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

We don't expect to see these devices until later in the year, likely around August, so we should take this report with a grain of salt for now. Still, the idea of a built-in S Pen for the Z Fold 4 is pretty exciting and should significantly improve on an already impressive smartphone.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
