Leak shows Samsung Fold 4's potentially less noticeable crease
Samsung's next-generation foldable smartphones are likely to be introduced in August. The company is expected to announce the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 models. In the latest development, a leaked image has revealed that the Fold 4 will have a less noticeable crease than Fold 3. The news comes from tipster Ice Universe, who has a good track record with Samsung-related leaks.
Why does this story matter?
- Foldable smartphones have been marred with screen creasing issue wherein a line or ridge develops in the plastic display where the device folds.
- Initially, this was believed to be a trade-off of the in-folding design but OPPO Find N proved it wasn't so, raising the bar for Samsung and Motorola.
- Now, it seems that Samsung has figured some crease-related improvements for its next-generation devices.
