Galaxy Z Flip 4 may have a thinner hinge and a less bumpy display crease

The upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4 should feature better internal hardware than the ongoing model. That's a given, considering that the Z Flip 4 will hit the market roughly one year after the Z Flip 3. But reportedly, beyond chipsets and cameras, Samsung is also working on two major design upgrades for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The fourth-generation Flip phone from Samsung could boast an improved hinge design and a less noticeable foldable display crease.

Let's start with the hinge. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 will reportedly have a more compact hinge mechanism and a less visible external hinge. At least, according to a rumor based on a few leaked third-party case designs.

Exactly how a thinner hinge will improve the user experience is unclear, but perhaps the panel gap between the two foldable halves of the phone will be narrower. It may also contribute to making the phone lighter.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a less noticeable foldable display crease

As for the Galaxy Z Flip 4's foldable display crease, it will reportedly be much less noticeable than the Galaxy Z Flip 3's crease (via @UniverseIce).

Less of a crease could be a pretty big deal for foldable phone fans, especially flip phone enthusiasts. The crease on the book-like Galaxy Fold was never a huge issue because it travels across the screen down the middle vertically. As a result, the user's fingertip rarely travels across the crease.

That's not the case for the smaller Galaxy Z Flip series, which has a horizontal crease that's more difficult to push at the back of your mind. The flip phone's display crease is more in the way, and users are reminded of its existence every time they swipe up or down the screen.

It's virtually impossible to determine just how less noticeable the Galaxy Z Flip 4's foldable display crease will be in practice without touching it. But we'll have the chance to try it out in a few months, around August-September, when Samsung should host its next Unpacked event. Until then, stay tuned for more SamMobile news and rumors.
