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.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
