It’s not really a secret: Samsung is preparing a new generation of foldable smartphones, namely the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Unlike “classic” smartphones, there is still a lot of room for improvement with this format and new indications are pointing suggests that the Fold 4 will be much more successful in certain key respects.

We are already coming to the 4th version of the Galaxy Z Fold, this foldable smartphone that can go from 6.2 inches to 7.6 inches, in a completely different format: closed it is a “classic” smartphone and more elongated, open one it a small tablet. A proposal that appeals to an ever larger audience, especially since the products are getting better every year.

Less wrinkles, more legibility

Regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Samsung should improve an essential aspect specific to this format: the presence of a clearly visible fold when the smartphone is open, which can be annoying when using it and especially when viewing content. But with the 4th generation, that could well change.

Site Phone Arena and leaker Ice Universe have actually published a photo of what the new “fold” of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is said to be and a direct comparison to that of the Z Fold 3. In the picture the difference is quite obvious noticeable: Even if it can still be seen, the line in the middle of the Fold 4 screen looks much more subtle. According to Phone Arena, the improvement in the crease would still be around 20%, which seems little given the image published by Ice Universe. In use, a less visible crease is beneficial for videos and video games, and the black backgrounds make everything almost invisible.

Galaxy Z Fold 4: big ambitions for Samsung

The characteristics of the future Galaxy Z Fold 4 are slowly becoming known: Samsung’s next high-end foldable smartphone is set to be announced in August during an “Unpacked” conference at the same time as the Galaxy Z Flip 4. There’s a good chance there will be a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, Qualcomm’s most powerful at the moment. The photographic part should also be improved, notably with a new x3 optical zoom, a 50-megapixel main sensor and a 12-megapixel ultra wide angle.

The Galaxy Z Flip is also a nice success.

The Korean manufacturer is therefore betting a lot on this new Fold / Flip launch, with commercial ambitions revised upwards: according to several sources, Samsung would have a sales target of 10 million units. As a reminder, the Fold 3 sold 4.6 million units in 2021, while the Flip reached 2.5 million units.

More than ever, Samsung wants to seduce a wide audience with its foldable smartphones, a market in which it is largely a leader.
