With Samsung's next Unpacked event set for 10 August, we can now expect leaks related to the company's upcoming devices to intensify ahead of the launch event. Over the past few days, there have been a few new leaks revealing an interesting design detail of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4, along with the pricing details of Z Flip 4 and the next generation of the company's Buds Pro TWS earphones. The company is also tipped to introduce design changes with the purported Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, while pricing details for the company's next-generation smartwatch models have also surfaced online.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 had bigger cover displays than the original Galaxy Z Fold. With the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4, Samsung is expected to opt for finer refinements to its existing Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip designs, instead of a design overhaul. A new leak has now revealed that the cover display may appear wider with narrower bezels and this seems to be down to a more compact hinge design on the upcoming Z Fold 4.
An image shared by tipster Ice Universe, shows the top end of what is claimed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. The cropped image of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 (middle) is compared to the existing Galaxy Z Fold 3 (bottom) and Vivo's recently launched X Fold (top), which appears to have the slimmest bezels among the three.
While it seems hard to tell whether the Z Fold 4's cover display bezel has gotten narrower, one detail that does stand out is how much Samsung has managed to trim down its hinge mechanism over the Z Fold 3, which should also make the phone easier to hold for one-handed use. An earlier image by the same source also pointed out the slightly narrower bezel of the cover display of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4.

Samsung's purported Galaxy Buds 3 Pro have been spotted on a European retailer's website priced at EUR 213.89 (roughly Rs. 17,400), ahead of the upcoming launch event, according to a report. However, it is worth noting that there is currently no word from Samsung on plans to launch the next generation of its Galaxy Buds Pro TWS earbuds.

Meanwhile, the tipster also claims that Samsung's soon to be announced Galaxy Watch 5 Pro may replace the Galaxy Watch Classic entirely.
