Samsung makes some of the best smartphones going, especially if you want to use Android or like a more exciting form factor than the iPhone 13 offers. 

And we might have just got a really good look at the forthcoming update to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, one of the most interesting smartphones in recent times, thanks to its retro-esque folding design. 

In a now-removed tweet (via 9to5Google), YouTuber TechTalkTV has posted a gallery of photos of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 in all its glory, roughly one month after CAD renders for the device leaked. 

But it's not just photos: TechTalkTV has also made a hands-on video with the alleged device, giving us a really clear look at what's to come. 

In essence, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a very similar design to the outgoing Z Flip 3, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Perhaps the biggest change is the crease – a necessity given how the phone works – is less noticeable. 

While the crease isn't, and wasn't, a major deal for customers and reviewers, it's good to see Samsung attempting to improve something that could be made better. 

TechTalkTV expects the Galaxy Z Flip 4 to come with 12MP main and ultrawide cameras, alongside a 10MP selfie camera, alongside a larger 3,700mAh battery. 

As The Verge notes, these updates would be fairly disappointing, especially the camera, given the Z Flip 4 is going to be a high-end handset, competing with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro Max
