According to a recent leak, Samsung has stepped up its efforts to make the screen crease less noticeable on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 compared to older models. The leaker Ice Universe claims that once unfolded, the screen will be smoother, which corroborates old information on the subject. The manufacturer could thus catch up with its slight delay in the field compared to the competition.
While it is debatable that Samsung produces the best foldable smartphones on the market (at least that’s what the sales figures seem to indicate ), the manufacturer still lags slightly behind its competitors. . Indeed, when the screen of its phones is unfolded, it appears a little less smooth. In other words, the trace of the fold is still visible, even on his Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Still, it’s not Samsung’s fault for looking to improve. Remember: the very first Galaxy Z Fold featured a screen completely covered in plastic; which had the effect of leaving a very visible mark when unfolded. The latest model, on the other hand, has reduced this effect a bit thanks to its ultra-thin glass layer. But the crease is still there.
Samsung again will not be able to get rid of the crease in the Galaxy Z Fold 4
This is all the more embarrassing for Samsung as the competition already seems to have solved the problem. Oppo and Motorola, to name a few, have already developed a hinge technology that completely closes the space between the two parts of the screen, which thus makes the crease almost completely disappear. It was therefore urgent for Samsung to look into the problem.
This will apparently be done on the Galaxy Z Fold. On Twitter, leaker Ice Universe claims that “the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s crease is slightly better than the Fold 3’s “, although you can “still see the crease”. “The screen looks smoother,” he concludes. An old leak seems to attest to this thesis, since it informed us that the manufacturer has opted for a new hinge design which would reduce the presence of the fold on the screen.
In separate news, Bill Gates, the former head of Microsoft does not use the company’s smartphones. Answering a question about his mobile device on the Reddit forum, Bill Gates told what kind of smartphone he uses.
I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3. I try different ones. With this screen, I can get by with a great laptop and phone and don’t need anything else.
Some may emphasize that Gates could use the Microsoft Surface Duo 2; but, like the first generation, this device failed in sales and is inferior to Samsung’s foldable flagship on literally all fronts.
As for other smartphones or the laptop he chose, Gates, unfortunately, did not disclose the details.
