Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 4 at its Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event on August 10, alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro smartwatches, and the brand new Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro wireless earbuds.
The new smartphone features a slightly tweaked design, wider and shorter displays, a new hinge mechanism, and a less noticeable crease. The new phone is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, and it’s the most powerful, and best foldable smartphone from the company yet. We’ll be testing out the new devices in the coming weeks, so make sure to stay tuned for our full review.

If you still haven’t decided which case would be the most suitable for your needs, don’t worry. We got you covered. We have a brief summary of our picks, based on each category.
- Rugged cases: If you’re looking for a rugged and sturdy design that provides the most protection and the best bang for your buck, the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle and Unicorn Beetle Pro cases are some of the best on the market. The i-Blason Armorbox also provides excellent protection with similar benefits. Samsung’s Silicone Grip Cover, and Spigen Tough Armor are also great choices, but they lack built-in screen protection and a slot for the stylus.
- Clear Cases: The i-Blason Cosmo Series gets the easy win here, since it offers an excellent transparent case with a screen protector and lets you store and carry the S Pen with you wherever you go. Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid also deserves an easy recommendation, but it lacks the slot for storing the S Pen.
- Slim and Light: The Samsung Slim Standing Cover and Spigen Air Skin are excellent all-rounders, providing great overall protection against scratches and falls.
- Premium: Let’s be honest, most cases for the Galaxy Z Fold series cost twice or three times as much as for standard flagship smartphones, but if you want something that stands out and feels more premium, the Samsung Leather Cover with protect your purchase in style.
