The Galaxy Z Fold 4 to have a smaller hinge and slimmer cover screen bezel?


No tech news cycle would be complete without some speculation regarding Samsung foldable lineup. This time around, the star of the show is the bulkier Galaxy Z Fold 4. With the release date of the device drawing nearer, the thirst for rumors is growing even stronger.

Luckily, Twitter is here to save the day – user IceUniverse, to be precise. This particular tipster has a proven track record when it comes to leaks, which makes the information shared by him via Twitter especially interesting. According to IceUniverse, the new design of the Fold 4 will feature minor tweaks to bezels of the cover screen and a narrower hinge.

According to the leak, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature a much more compact hinge. Furthermore, the bezel on the cover screen facing the hinge will also be somewhat trimmed down. This means that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could finally be addressing one of the biggest problems of the Fold lineup as a whole – their incredibly bulky form-factor, when folded. While many could treat these design changes as incremental, it should be noted that the Fold 4 should also be seeing some additional tweaks to its aspect ratios. We discussed them in a dedicated article some time ago.

The combination of a slightly shorter (or at least, slightly less tall) cover screen, smaller outer screen bezels and a less bulkier hinge are sure to add up and make the Galaxy Z Fold 4 much more usable when folded. That is not to say that the Fold 4 will suddenly become a compact device. The foldable will likely remain on the far-side of the spectrum when it comes to thickness and weight.

Nevertheless, users will not be buying a Galaxy Z Fold 4 to use primarily as a normal smartphone. The highlight of the series has always been the foldable display, regardless of the trade-off that it requires. The only difference is that in its fourth generation, the compromises will be much easier to stomach.
