No tech news cycle would be complete without some speculation about Samsung’s foldable lineup. This time, the star of the show is the bulkier Galaxy Z Fold 4. As the device’s release date draws closer, the hunger for rumors grows even stronger.
Thankfully, Twitter is here to save the day – user IceUniverse, to be exact. This particular tipster has a proven track record of leaks, which makes the information he shares via Twitter particularly interesting. According to IceUniverse, the new Fold 4 design will include minor changes to the bezel edges and a narrower hinge.
The combination of a slightly shorter (or at least slightly less tall) bezel, smaller outer screen bezels and a less bulky hinge will definitely add up and make the Galaxy Z Fold 4 much more usable when folded. That does not mean that the Fold 4 suddenly becomes a compact device. The foldable will likely remain at the other end of the spectrum when it comes to thickness and weight.
Nevertheless, users will not buy a Galaxy Z Fold 4 to mainly use as a normal smartphone. The highlight of the series has always been the foldable display, regardless of the trade-off it requires. The only difference is that in the fourth generation, the compromises will be much easier to bear.
