The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is a great foldable smartphone, but perhaps its main issue is the overly tall aspect ratio of its external screen, which makes typing not a great experience. According to a new leak out of China today, that niggle might get improved in the next generation.
Seen below is a transparent case for the Galaxy Z Fold3, next to a couple of shots of what is purported to be a similar case for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold4. The latter has a bit more width to it, implying that the cover screen’s aspect ratio has been slightly improved, making it less tall than that of the Fold3.

Of course we can’t even be sure that these shots actually portray a Fold4 case, but provided that they do, and the case maker in question was working based on official dimensions from Samsung, this has the potential to make the Korean company’s next foldable much easier to use when closed.
The only other thing the case leak reveals is that the Fold4’s camera island design will be very similar to that of the Fold3’s, with an elongated pill shape housing the multiple sensors.
A couple of days ago we also heard that the Fold4’s foldable display would have a less prominent crease, which is one of the other main niggles people had with its predecessor, so it looks like Samsung may in fact be slowly improving things in all areas. Could this mean we’ll also get a proper flagship camera system in the next Fold? Let’s wait and see what happens.
