Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 case leak highlights potential design change
We expect the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 to appear sometime in August, and now we have a new leak from a reliable source that points to a design change for the Galaxy Z Fold. 4 foldable.
Regular tipster ice universe (opens in a new tab) posted some photos of a case that’s supposedly designed with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in mind and there’s one key difference from the Galaxy Z Fold 3 version – when the case is closed it’s slightly wider.
One of the minor user complaints about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 was that the external display (the one you see when the phone is closed) was very tall and narrow, so it looks like the new model could go somewhere. . to fix that.

What we’re not getting here are actual screen measurements or even a whole lot of detail – we’re straying from the tweet text and image visuals so this might not be the leak the strongest point about Samsung’s next foldable.
However, this suggests that Samsung is heeding the Galaxy Z Fold 3 reviews and is ready to address as many of them as possible with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. We’ve already heard that the new model will have less visible crease in the center of the case. screen, for example.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 has also been said to be thinner and lighter than its predecessor, as even foldable phones sometimes have to fit in a pocket. We should know exactly what Samsung is working on in the next few months.
Analysis: Samsung keeps trying to perfect the foldable
We are fast approaching the launch of the fourth iterations of Samsung’s foldable phones and, as you would expect after four years, these devices are moving from innovative experiences to phones you can rely on for everyday use.
While companies like Apple and Google keep their foldable phone plans a secret, Samsung is moving forward and improving all the time. If the Galaxy Z Fold 4 does indeed come with a more user-friendly aspect ratio in terms of the external display, then that’s another step in the right direction.
There will likely be many other welcome improvements as well. The phones are expected to be faster than those that came before them, the folding mechanisms are expected to be even more reliable, and there have also been rumors of rear camera upgrades.
As with all smartphones, much of the appeal of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will also depend on the price points Samsung is able to secure for them. Another benefit of being in the foldable business for many years is that manufacturing processes should become cheaper – or so we hope.
