Major leak reveals all the Samsung gadgets that are launching next week

The next eagerly awaited Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for August 10, with the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Galaxy Watch 5, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, and the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro on the agenda – and we now have an early look at all of that hardware.

Over at 91mobiles they have a whole host of leaked renders showcasing the phones, smartwatches and wireless earbuds that are due to be officially unveiled next week. What's more, all the products in the pipeline are revealed from a variety of angles, and in a variety of different colors.

We're even treated to a look at some extras and accessories – the charging case for the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, for example, the S Pen case that will be available for the Galaxy Z Fold 4, and some of the additional straps on the way for the Galaxy Watch 5.

Color choices

These renders match up with previous leaks that we've seen for these products, but we haven't seen such a comprehensive dump of pictures in one go until now. It should be enough to keep you going until Wednesday at 6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm BST / 11pm AEST.

One detail that's noticeable here is that there's a lot of Bora Purple around: that's the new shade that just got added to the Galaxy S22 range, and it has been talked about in rumors around the new devices too. There are also plenty of more conventional color choices here as well, so there should be something for everyone.

We will of course bring you all the news and announcements as they're made on Wednesday, so make sure you stick with TechRadar when the day comes. After that, the next major Samsung product launch should be for the Galaxy S23.


Analysis: Samsung's big day

We're used to product launches here at TechRadar, but the Unpacked event that Samsung has lined up for August 10 is undoubtedly in the top tier in terms of expectations and scale. We've already seen official teaser trailers for the upcoming showcase.

While most of the attention might be on flagship phones – iPhone vs Galaxy vs Pixel – here Samsung has a chance to improve on its head start in terms of foldable phones. Neither Apple nor Google has a folding device on the market yet, whereas Samsung is about to unveil its fourth-generation model.

In the other categories, Samsung is playing catch up to Apple: its Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds product lines are still some way behind the Apple Watch and the Apple AirPods in terms of sales and brand recognition, but that could start to change once these new devices go on sale.

What is certain is that Samsung is apparently pulling out all the stops: with two foldable phones and two smartwatch models on the way, it can't be accused of a half-hearted effort in its 2022 product range.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr
