A mountain of leaks over the past few weeks have revealed a lot about Samsung‘s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldables. And as we move closer to their launch, the leaks keep piling in. Today, we have live images of a couple of protective cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Shared on Twitter by the ever so reliable tipster Ice Universe, the images show a transparent case and a black TPU case.
The cases confirm that the new clamshell foldable from Samsung won’t see any major design change from its predecessor. But there will be some minor changes. According to the source, the hinge will be a little narrower this time. Leaked schematics recently showed how different the Galaxy Z Fold 4 looks with a narrower hinge and a boxier shape. While the Galaxy Z Flip 4 retains the shape of last year’s model, the changes in hinge size should allow for a sleeker appearance.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we are hearing that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will get a narrower hinge. Unfortunately, we don’t have a side-by-side comparison of the changes, as we saw for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. But with the frequency of leaks lately, we are quite optimistic about getting to see that for the clamshell foldable soon. We will keep you posted.
Samsung is working hard to protect its lead in the foldable market
Samsung has a huge headstart over its rivals in the foldable smartphone market. The company is now readying its fourth-gen foldables while most others have only made one such “unconventional” smartphone. No wonder it occupies a lion’s share in this niche market.
However, with multiple brands entering the foldable industry this year, Samsung won’t be able breath as easily as it did in the past couple of years. The company is working hard to improve its foldable offerings and protect its lead up top. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are touted to bring numerous improvements over their respective predecessors.
Based on the leaks so far, the upcoming Samsung foldables will get improved flagship-grade cameras, more durable flexible screens, bigger batteries, faster charging, and many other upgrades.
