Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 leak points to a serious camera upgrade

We're rapidly approaching the expected launch window of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 – some point in August, as far as we know – and a new leak sheds some light on the rear camera setup that we can look forward to from this flagship foldable.

Seasoned tipster Ice Universe says that the phone will come with a triple lens 50MP + 12MP + 12MP setup on the back, with ultrawide and telephoto zoom capabilities. The same source says the 12MP 3x zoom camera will be the "strongest 3x camera ever" as far as Samsung phones go.

In other words it'll beat the 10MP 3x zoom found in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra launched earlier this year – though it's worth bearing in mind that the S22 Ultra has a 10x zoom camera on board as well.

Potential camera setups

To date there's been plenty of speculation on how Samsung might improve the rear camera module of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is made up of a 12MP wide camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 12MP telephoto 2x optical zoom camera.

Some leakers have been spreading the word that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 would come with the same 10MP 3x zoom camera that you can find in the S22 series, which would make sense in terms of Samsung's manufacturing production processes.

On the other hand, it's also been predicted that the upcoming foldable would arrive carrying a 108MP main camera, a substantial upgrade – another of the cameras that can currently be found inside the Ultra edition of the Galaxy S22.

Analysis: the Galaxy Z Fold 4 story so far

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2022, and we've seen plenty of speculation and rumor about it, as befits a handset with such a high profile. It should turn up alongside the clamshell Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

In the last few weeks we've been hearing that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is going to be thinner and lighter than its predecessor, in an effort to make the foldable easier to slide into a pocket. Another rumor has suggested that Samsung is expecting to sell a lot more of its 2022 foldables compared to the 2021 versions.

While support for the S Pen stylus is widely expected, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 isn't expected to have an integrated slot to store it (and nor did the Galaxy Z Fold 3). Meanwhile, the cover display is set to be ever so slightly smaller than the one on its predecessor, coming in at 6.19 inches.

Other leaks we've heard include one suggesting that the battery capacity of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will match the phone it's replacing – so 4,400mAh – and there's been some encouraging news in terms of predictions that Samsung could drop the price of the foldable. In a few months, we'll know for sure.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
