The Flip 4 is thought to be constructed of strong aluminium, and have a thinner bezel, a smaller and more compact hinge and a bigger battery to make the most of the high-endQualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, wtih 8GB of RAM.

Also leaked are the images of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series, which is said to improve on all the qualities of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 - and it could even rival the Apple Watch 8.

There are three versions of the watch; two standard and one pro.

It will apparently allow for 50 hours of life in the standard models and up to 80 hours in the case of the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which gives over three days of use before a charge is needed.
