Some of the greatest foldable phones available right now are part of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series, but each one has a display quirk that not everyone likes. But it appears that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will finally do something about the fold.

When the Galaxy Fold was first released, its folding display was just covered in plastic. When unfolded, that display wasn’t flat; instead, there was a noticeable crease that ran vertically along the hinge. The same was true of following models, including the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from this year, which had a layer of incredibly thin glass on the display.

Samsung’s hinge design is mostly to blame for the wrinkle on the company’s display. It is challenging to avoid the crease because of the small radius, however some other companies have found a solution. For instance, Oppo and Motorola have a teardrop hinge that closes the hinge while expanding the internal space for the hinge, reducing the crease and preventing the hinge from having a gap.

While we still don’t know what Samsung has in store for the Galaxy Z Fold 4, according to Ice Universe , the crease will be somewhat reduced. The screen will appear smoother, but the hinge will still be somewhat apparent. It makes likely that Samsung would use the chance to reduce the crease as the Fold 4 was previously said to have a new hinge design that uses fewer mechanical components.

We weren’t overly critical of the crease in our reviews of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Fold 2 as well. It typically blends into the background when used frequently. We stated:

Although it could appear visible at first, after three months, I’ve very much forgotten about the small divot. I occasionally notice it, but I don’t really care right now. I really hope Samsung finds a solution to this issue eventually, but it shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for anyone.

Nevertheless, it’s good to see that Samsung is now addressing this issue.
