Image illustrates Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4’s slimmer bezels on the cover display

For the fourth-generation Galaxy Z Fold (coming on August 10), Samsung is reconfiguring the aspect ratios on the cover and the internal screens. The cover display will move from 24.5:9 to 23:9. The company has also found a way to slim down the bezels a bit, judging by this image shared by The ice universe.

It shows the vivo X Fold (top), the new Galaxy Z Fold4 (middle) and the Galaxy Z Fold3 (bottom). Both the vertical and horizontal bezels are slimmer than they were on the outgoing Z Fold.

Another thing to note in this picture – the profile of the hinge is noticeably different and more compact. Rumor has it that the new hinge has been redesigned to make the fold smaller.

Going back to the new image format, here is an illustrative rendering. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 gets more powerful – giving apps a little more horizontal space on the cover screen and making the upper part of the screen a little easier to reach.

The internal screen is moved a little closer to a square, from a 6.25:5 aspect ratio to 6:5. Samsung has promised some official teasers in the three weeks leading up to the Unpacked event, and we expect to see confirmation on the screen and the rumours.

For a look inside, the first official renders of the Galaxy Z Fold4 (and Z Flip4 too) have already leaked. By the way, fans in the US can already pre-order a device and will get $100 in store credit — up to $200 if they also pre-order a Galaxy Watch5 and new Galaxy Buds (both of which will be revealed at the same Unpacked event).
