Galaxy Z Fold 4 & Flip 4 with exciting design changes

NextPit Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 hinge

Both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 have recently become a hot topic on the internet after the duo’s alleged specs were leaked. While they point to rather lame changes under the hood, the newly surfaced details point to a radical and exciting design update for the two  foldables .

  • Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 could get a new hinge design.
  • The improved hinge could make the device slimmer.
  • Samsung could also introduce a better under-display camera for the Galaxy Z Fold 4

If the older leaks are to be believed, a ” boring” update of Samsung’s new foldable devices awaits us this fall . However, some renders that have surfaced recently suggest an interesting design change. It looks like the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4 , and the Z Fold 4 in particular, is tackling one of the key issues.

Smaller hinge, slimmer device

According to reliable leaker IceUniverse , Samsung is deploying a new hinge for its yet-to-be-announced foldables. The improved hinge will have a significant impact on the aesthetics of both Galaxy Z smartphones as it will reduce the area occupied by the folding mechanism.

A comparison of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 shows that the footprint of the latter is narrower when folded. Also, this design update for the upcoming foldable matches an alleged case that was also previously  spotted by IceUniverse .

Better hidden front camera for the Galaxy Z Fold 4?

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 could also get an upgrade for its UPC (Under Panel Camera). In numbers, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 ‘s current 4 MP camera covers  172 pixels. This is noticeable in use, as these pixels are significantly coarser – you can see this in detail in our test of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 . This value could more than double for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The leaker estimates around 400 pixels, which means that the changed display area is significantly finer in this area.

Of course, we always recommend taking these details with a pinch of salt until the next Samsung event. But regardless of the authenticity of these leaks: Which features of the Galaxy Z Flip or Z Fold 4 are you most looking forward to? Let us know what you think in the comments.
