This year’s most awaited foldables, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, are just a few days away from an official announcement. A lot of details regarding the phones have already leaked online, in the run-up to the official debut, but today we finally get to see real life images of the same.
These images were posted by Noh_tech on Twitter, and they show both phones in their full glories.
Let’s start with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The phone actually looks very similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The phone’s bezels do seem slightly smaller this time around, and the metal hinge at the back also seems smaller. The camera placement, both at the front and the back are completely similar, even the number of cameras, with the Z Fold 3 also sporting a triple-camera setup.
Coming to the Galaxy Flip 4, here too there aren’t many physical changes this time around. The back hinge appears smaller, but that’s about it. Even the camera placement is similar to last year’s Flip 3, including the use of dual cameras on the back.
A while ago well known tipster, @IceUniverse tweeted the following picture, and it clearly shows the reduced crease on the newer phones. While it might not be very evident from the leaked images, users can expect to see the difference on physical viewing.

Apart from that both the phones will come with the latest hardware, including the new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC. You can read our previous coverage here for the full details.
One of the major gripes with both of Samsung’s foldables was the plastic screen and visible crease. As the leaked images suggest, these are likely to stay in the upcoming iterations also, but it is important that Samsung is able to meaningfully improve on both these aspects.
