Samsung today introduced its newest foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, which compete in a market that they essentially control. There were speculations about Samsung fixing the display fold on the Fold 4 and Flip 4 before to the debut. Has that worked out? Let’s examine.
Since the release of the first Galaxy Fold, Samsung has employed a hinge design that necessitates a small radius for the display to sit in when folded, causing a crease when the display is opened. It’s a problem that irritates some people yet is invisible to most people when they utilize it.
Regardless of how you feel about it, Samsung has a problem that many have wanted to see resolved this year.
Unfortunately, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 still have a noticeable display crease, though it is now less noticeable.
In comparison to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the display crease on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is significantly less noticeable and visible. The difference is clear when you compare the two in the image below, although it’s important to remember that the Fold 3 in the image has been in use for a year, and the crease does become slightly more noticeable with time.
I can see that Samsung has made a few tiny adjustments here, but not as many as some people had hoped. The Fold 4 has so far had the largest effect on me in terms of how the crease feels. Although it’s less obvious than it was on the Fold 3 when you run your finger over the screen, you’ll probably still see more light reflections along that centerline.
There hasn’t really been any change for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my Galaxy Z Flip 3 with me to do a comparison, but there wasn’t really anything to compare. Unfortunately, the Flip 4’s display crease still stands out and is very obvious. I find the crease on the Flip to be far more aggravating than on the Fold.
The hinge hasn’t changed all that much this year either. The phone can’t fully close like rivals like the Oppo Find N do despite the hinge sticking out from the device less and the side bezel having less space.
In any case, Samsung has undoubtedly made some progress in this area, but it appears that, at least for the time being, the company has no plans to completely do away with the crease. As the market for foldable devices grows, only time will tell if that was the right decision.
Additionally, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 offers an improved camera and display for the same $1,799 price as its predecessor. The Flip 4, on the other hand, is essentially the same as the Flip 3 but costs the same $999 and has a significantly larger battery. The information regarding the Fold, Flip, and the rest of Samsung’s new products may be found below. The Flip 4 and Fold 4 are currently available for pre-order.
