Real life photos of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 leak online

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 have leaked extensively over the last few months, ahead of their official unveiling on August 10, but we now have something new in terms of advance leaks: real life photos of the foldable handsets.

These pictures were posted by @noh_tech on Twitter (via 9to5Google) and give us a decent look at these two Samsung smartphones, from a variety of angles, in what appears to be a blue-gray sort of color.

As we've already had so much information appear about the foldables, these photographs don't actually tell us too much that's new. However, it's interesting to see in-the-hand shots of the devices before they get their grand unveiling on Wednesday this week.

Small refinements

There are some minor design tweaks that are noticeable in the photos, making these handsets slightly different from their predecessors. As has been rumored, the screen creases look smaller this time around, so credit to Samsung for that.

Meanwhile, it looks as though the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is going to get a smaller outer hinge area compared with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 – another sign that manufacturers are getting better at making the complex components that go into these phones.

The big Samsung Unpacked event that is happening in a few days isn't just about foldable phones, because we're very probably going to get some smartwatches and wireless earbuds as well. The event starts at 6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm BST / 11pm AEST on August 10.

Analysis: what we think we know so far

As we mentioned above, these two phones have already leaked extensively. If those leaks are accurate, Samsung isn't going to have much to surprise us with on Wednesday when it's next Unpacked event gets underway.

It sounds as though the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is going to have a 7.6-inch main screen, the same size display as its predecessor has. There's also been talk of an optical zoom upgrade for the rear camera module, while the phone is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset, and could come with as much as 1TB of storage.

As for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the phone is expected to be slightly thicker than the foldable it's replacing, though the screen is apparently staying the same size at 6.7 inches. The hinge is said to be less clunky this time around, while the rumors are that better battery life could be one of the major improvements.

We're not too sure on the pricing of these phones, but don't expect them to be particularly affordable. We've also recently heard that they might ditch the Z part of their names this year, which would at least make them easier to write and talk about.

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
