As we get closer to the expected announcement of Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Z Fold and Flip phones, more and more details are emerging about their designs and specs. New leaks point to a thinner, lighter footprint to make the Z Fold 4 more user-friendly and practical.
A well-established Ice Universe leaker post about the size change on Twitter, also noting that the phone would have a squarer display than previous folds. The change also comes with a slightly narrower bezel.

Other tweets from the industry insider include a retweet from the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultant Ross Young which says production of the Z Fold and Flip would double what they produced for the Fold and Flip 3. This rumor would imply that Samsung has high expectations for sales of both devices, and possibly a price drop to further incentivize of sales.

Previously we have seen Z Fold 4 camera rumorsand other information pointing to the usual spec bumps we’ve come to expect from a generational upgrade. Some sources claim the phone will include an S-Pen, but Ice Universe claims otherwise.
Dutch tech blog Galaxy Club complaints that the battery capacity will be 4270mAh split between two batteries, which as we know is great for battery longevity and helps keep the devices pretty slim.
All the details we see in the leaks are yet to be confirmed, as there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but the buzz the phone is generating four months ahead of its scheduled announcement is a good sign.
The Z Fold 3 is still a bit… beefy
As long as battery life remains decent, a slimmer profile is more than welcome in a giant foldable device like the Z Fold series. No one wants to carry around an elusive brick that they will inevitably use to take photos and videos.
We quite liked the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but its thickness and weight were a sore point in an otherwise state-of-the-art device. At 271g, it’s a big two-handed phone, and while the Z Fold 4 might be a lot lighter, it will no doubt be a two-handed phone as well.
There are plenty of conflicting leaks about it, but if the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has an S-Pen built in, it’s going to be one of the most versatile phones out there, which makes us excited for the future of the growth. collapsible doghouse.
