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.

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

iPhone 15 Pro Rumored to Feature Ultra-Thin Curved Bezels

The iPhone 15 Pro models will have thinner, curved bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models, potentially resulting in an Apple Watch-like appearance, according to the leaker known as " ShrimpApplePro ." ShrimpApplePro clarified that the next-generation "Pro" iPhone models will still have flat displays, since only the bezels are to be curved. According to a source speaking to the leaker, this combination of slimmer bezels and curved edges could result in a look similar to the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8. The curved front glass will purportedly also be present on the ‌iPhone 15‌ and ‌iPhone 15‌ Plus's design, but these devices will not have thinner bezels compared to their iPhone 14 predecessors. ShrimpApplePro added that the ‌iPhone 15‌ lineup will feature the same display sizes as last year's ‌iPhone 14‌ lineup. Last year, the leaker was among the first to say that the ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro models will have a titanium frame with curved rear ed

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.
