Therefore, any reduction in either thickness or weight that puts the Galaxy Z Fold 4 more in line with other big smartphones is welcome. Even if 17 grams do not seem like a big deal, they are bound to make a difference when the device is being handled for prolonged periods of time. Given this latest rumor, we cannot help but ask – is there anything we don’t know about the Galaxy Z Fold 4 at this point? Thus far, leaks have uncovered the supposed design changes, aspect ratio tweaks, crease improvements and even the full technical specifications.
It’s possible that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be lighter than its predecessor. IceUniverse, a well-known tipster with a solid track record when it comes to Samsung goods, disclosed this information via Twitter. Ice Universe says in the original tweet that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 would weigh roughly 254 grammes. This is a net reduction of 17 grammes when compared to the previous-generation Fold (which weighed around 271). While this may not appear to be a significant adjustment, the Galaxy Fold has long been known for its clumsiness, especially when folded. The thickness of the foldable, along with its large weight (far beyond that of handsets like the iPhone 13 Pro Max), makes the Fold one of the bulkiest smartphones available.
Of course, all of the information above still falls into the realm of speculation and should be taken with a pinch of salt. Nevertheless, the rumors up to this point paint a very interesting picture of what we can expect from Samsung’s next big foldable. We are still some months away from the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s official announcement, which is expected around August. Given that the device has already entered mass production, it is quite possible that most of what we know thus far holds true. Eventually, all will be revealed – in time.
