    Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6: Everything you need to know

    Although it may be difficult to believe, Samsung has already introduced four iterations of its flip-style folding phone.

    The most recent of them, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, expanded the size of the cover screen dramatically, but the same flaws remain: mediocre battery life, subpar cameras, and delayed charging.

    Will the next Z Flip 6 fix any of these issues? Rumors say that at least one of these places will be improved. Here’s all we know so far about the gadget.

    When will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 be released?

    We don’t have any concrete information regarding the release date of the Galaxy Z Flip 6. But the release dates of previous generations give us an idea of what to expect:

    Assuming Samsung continues with this schedule, the Z Flip 6 is likely to arrive around July or August 2024. However, there are no rumours to support this specific release date.

    How much will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 cost?

    We currently do not have any confirmed pricing information for the Galaxy Z Flip 6. However, below are the launch prices of its predecessors:

    As you can see, while price in the EU has stayed steady, it has steadily gotten more costly. However, it’s worth mentioning that the Z Flip 5’s basic model featured double the capacity of previous generations.

    Will Samsung raise the price of the Z Flip 5? It is feasible, but it will most likely depend on how big the upgrades are.

    What specs and features will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 have?

    Design & displays

    The Galaxy Z Flip 5 included various design improvements, most notably a redesigned hinge mechanism and a bigger cover screen. Samsung is expected to improve these characteristics, particularly the hinge, since the business has continually focused on enhancing its durability.

    In terms of screens, we anticipate that Samsung will keep the 3.4in cover panel and 6.7in main display from the Galaxy Z Flip 5. In the end, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will most likely resemble its predecessor.

    This is only speculation, but there have been no rumours to suggest otherwise.

    Performance

    The current Z Flip 5 features Qualcomm’s most powerful smartphone SoC at the time of debut, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is currently available, and it will almost certainly power the Z Flip 6.

    But, in some markets, might Samsung’s own Exynos CPUs be used? Qualcomm’s CEO has stated that the forthcoming Galaxy S24 phones would be divided between Snapdragon and Exynos, according to Korean tech blog The Elec (via SamMobile). It’s probable that the same holds true with the Z Flip 6.

    The biggest storage choice for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is 512GB, therefore a 1TB storage option on the Z Flip 6 would be welcome. But any changes to the current 8GB of RAM are unlikely.

    Cameras

    An early prototype edition of the Z Flip 6 contains a significant boost to the primary camera, according to Dutch tech blog GalaxyClub. The lens will reportedly be 50Mp, up from 12Mp on the Z Flip 5.

    There have been no leaks or rumors about the additional cameras. Until we hear otherwise, we may presume that the 12Mp ultrawide and 10Mp selfie cameras will be retained.

    Battery & charging

    It’s unclear whether Samsung will increase the battery size on the Z Flip 6. The 3700mAh cell in its predecessor provided adequate battery life, but charging was where the Z Flip 5 fell short.

    It only reached 40% in 30 minutes with maximum speeds of just 25W (and no charger included). In comparison, the OnePlus 11 charges at 100W in just 26 minutes.

    It’s less crucial, but upgrades to the 15W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging would be excellent.

    Software

    The Z Flip 6 will most likely run Samsung’s One UI 6, which is based on Android 14. The Z Flip 5 has a few flip-exclusive functions, so maybe more will be added to its successor.
