    I know, I know... the Z Fold 3 is just 3 months old! Well, Samsung moves fast and rumors are already flying out there about its successor. So let's get started!

    First are the rumors that the Fold 4 may fold up & down, creating a horizontal crease on the same size main display. Uh... okay, but Fold 3 owners can get the same effect by turning our screens 90 degrees... but I guess they need something to talk about.

    (rant coming)

    What's on my nerve today, though, is that virtually every tech site blog is running the same headline about the Fold 4 getting the Fold 3's "worst feature": the under-display camera. I suppose they're all iPhone people who seethe at the thought that we can watch videos with a screen uninterrupted by even a punch-hole camera... let alone a notch.

    Guess what, fanbois? We don't have to use that camera! We can use the main cameras and front panel in preview mode and it works just fine. If we are using that camera, it's probably because we're in a videoconference - and the last time I checked, no one is doing Zoom calls in 4K and counting their colleague's nosehairs.

    (end rant)

    I've also seen a few speculating the improvement of the UDC. I like early rumor threads.;)

    Today's rumor is that the Fold 4 won't have room for an onboard S Pen. Yeah, okay, whatever. They have to talk about something!

    I told Samsung in the Members app that there is no reason why such a simple S Pen as the Fold Edition can't be reduced to regular S Pen size; and housed in the Fold 4. It can be just outboard the camera module. A new 3nm processor will sip battery (I haven't run this battery low yet), so there is no reason an S Pen can't go into the device as a folding Note.

    Most tech blogs post total rubbish (being polite here) about selfie cameras anyway. They'll praise a phone for having a 40MP selfie camera, even though diffraction broadening will be limiting the real resolution (the diameter of the Airy disc will be > 4 pixels for such a small, high resolution sensor) and in any case the images will be viewed on a screen with 4MP resolution and at a distance where the human eye wouldn't come close to resolving 40MP anyway. But they are very good at repeating marketing messages.

    I read about that on a UK website, which referenced a German article, based on Chinese reports, quoting a South Korean tech blog. It said anonymous sources cited a pending Samsung patent application for a "visual focal sensor" on each folding panel. Combined, the device will know exactly where your eyes are focused... and various patterns of eye-blinks will control the phone's functions (including S Pen features). Our very eyes, then, will BE the S Pen!

    (Do you think I have a future writing tech rumor blogs?)

    :D
