Over the past few weeks, we've been hearing  about the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and its possible   design change. Many tipsters came forward to say  that the aspect ratio of the handset is changing   a bit to make it wider, and the handset will  adopt the Galaxy S22 Ultra's camera system. 

Even though we had all the details, we didn't know  what they might actually look like upon release.   Well, that changes today as On leaks has shared  the first look of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 that   reveals everything we've been hearing  about the handset has been indeed true.  

These are based on official CAD  renders, so expect them to be 99%   accurate. As you can see, the Z Fold 4 looks a lot  like its predecessor, but there are some key design   changes.Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 - FIRST LOOK First the rear camera, the design looks  like the one on the S22 Ultra, except the sensors   appear to protrude more. Well, that's because  Samsung is finally using a flagship-grade camera   system on the Z Fold 4. The three cameras are  directly taken from the S22 Ultra, 108MP main   camera as well as its 10MP 3x telephoto unit. When  unfolded, the Z Fold 4 measures just 7.1 mm thick,   and that's the reason the camera sensors  are protruding more than the S22 Ultra.  

The change in dimensions confirms that the Z  Fold 4 is indeed getting shorter and wider.   The cover display, although as not as wide  as the one from Oppo's foldable phone,   it does indeed look wider, though. Ice Universe  says it's as wide as the iPhone 13 mini   and if that's indeed the case then people  should not have any problem with that.  

Also, the phone looks boxier this time compared  to the Z Fold 3 and interestingly, Samsung has   actually increased the thickness from 6.4 mm on the  Z Fold 3 to 7.1 mm on the Z Fold 4 when unfolded.   We're not getting any battery size increase, but most probably it has to do with the new   and bigger camera sensors.

But despite the  thickness, Ice Universe says the Z Fold 4 will be   significantly lighter than its predecessor. In fact, he says the Z Fold 4 will be lighter   than the iPhone 13 Pro Max with a case on. As  you can see, he says it will weigh less than   260 grams which would be awesome if indeed true. 

The Z Fold 3 weighs 271 grams by the way.

Onleaks mentions that Samsung has indeed made  a change in hinge design. Although he didn't   mention what exactly are the changes going to be  we know already that they are using a single hinge   instead of two. Samsung will offer the handset in  three color options — Beige, Black, and Gray.   With that said, the charging speeds of the Z  Fold 4 and Flip 4 have been revealed.

The Z Fold   4 will have a 25W charging standard same as its  predecessor but we're seeing an upgrade for the   Z Flip 4. It will also have a 25W charging speed  up from just 15W on its predecessor. Coupled with   a respectable 3700mAh battery, 400 more than its  predecessor, the Z Flip 4 will see a big upgrade   in its charging and battery department. Samsung will keep an Unpacked Event in late   July or early August to launch these  handsets.
