Samsung's flagship foldable phones aren't due to be announced for another couple of months - but leakers have reportedly already confirmed the specifications of this year's devices.

Ahead of the expected announcement of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 in August, Ice Universe - a reputable provider of advanced information - has shared a rundown of the latter's important features.

Describing it as "100 percent accurate", the leaker said the larger of the two devices was going to be powered by the Qualcomm's new next-gen mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip.

The phone would come in two versions - one with 256GB of storage and another with 512GB storage.

Recent flagship phones don't tend to allow external storage as it can slow down the overall device, so it would be a surprise if these could be extended.

Both versions will reportedly come with 12GB RAM and a 4400mAh battery, with Android 12 and Samsung's own OneUI 4.1.1 as the software.

They'll also have 7.6-inch 120Hz unfolded screens and a 6.2-inch 120Hz screen while folded.

The biggest boost could come in the camera department, with a 50MP main lens, a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 10MP, 3x optical zoom telephoto lens.

Those are similar specifications to the S22 and S22 Plus devices launched earlier this year.

Meanwhile Yogesh Brar, another leaker, has provided a similar overview of the smaller Flip 4.

It would reportedly have a 6.7-inch 120Hz screen when unfolded, with a 2.1-inch screen when folded, making it slightly larger than last year's model.

It would come with 8GB of RAM in two separate versions - one with 128GB storage and one with 256GB storage.

It's likely to be running the same version of Android and OneUI as the larger Fold 4, but will have a smaller battery, at just 3700mAh.

It would have two cameras on the rear, a 12MP main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide, with no optical zoom option.

In February Newshub reported the Korean tech giant was likely to build its S Pen stylus into the next generation of Galaxy Z Fold phones.

On the Fold 3, launched in August 2021 in Aotearoa, there was no room on board for the stylus and users had to purchase secondary storage.

That was widely panned, however, with the official case criticised for its size and how loose it was.
