Fujifilm X-t4 Confirmed With Flip-out Selfie Display

Fujifilm X-T4 Confirmed With Flip-out Selfie Display

According to a recent report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that the upcoming Fujifilm X-T4 could come with a flip-out selfie display. As it stands, Fujifilm’s X-T series comes with a display that can only tilt one way, but it looks like with the X-T4, Fujifilm might introduce a flip-out display that can also double up as a selfie display.

If you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, it is because this seems like a feature that Fujifilm will be introducing to more than just one camera this year. Previously we had heard a rumor that the upcoming X100V could also sport a two-way flip-out display, and with this new rumor, it seems that this is a feature Fujifilm wants to bring to more of its cameras this year.
