Galaxy Z Flip 6 Latest News

Updated June 13

  • A leaker expects the Galaxy Z Flip 6 to cost $100 more than its predecessor.
  • The Galaxy Z Flip colors have leaked, and they match up with earlier reports.
  • A leaked promotional image shows off the Galaxy Z Flip 6 alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
  • FCC documents seem to confirm that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will have a 3,790 mAh battery — not 4,000 mAh.

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 this summer, the company is obviously attempting to increase public interest in foldable phones in an effort to bring these gadgets closer to the general public.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5, with its larger cover display, better cameras, and more elegant no-gap design, was a pleasant upgrade over the previous model. However, it had a short battery life and fierce competition from the Motorola Razr+.

With early talk suggesting an even larger cover screen, a more robust folding display, and a far more competent primary camera, the speculations around Samsung's upcoming flip foldable are getting hotter. If Samsung hopes to reclaim the top spot, it will have to make a huge step forward.

Here is everything we currently know about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6. A comparison of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 is also available, which delves deeper into their differences.

Price and release date of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

We had anticipated that the beginning pricing of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 would be comparable to that of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 ($999 / £1,049). particularly when Samsung has made a huge selling point out of providing a foldable device for less than $1,000. Given that the pricing is the same as the Motorola Razr+, it is even more accurate.

OnLeaks is rumored to have stated that the Galaxy Z 6 Flip would cost $100 more than the Galaxy Z Flip 5. That would indicate that the entry-level 256GB model would start at $1,099 while the 512GB model would cost $1,219.

Our estimation of the Galaxy Flip 6's possible release date has improved. Since the prior three Galaxy Flips were introduced in August, it seems sense to assume that this year's anticipated foldable improvements from Samsung, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and the Galaxy Z Fold 6, will also be released in August.

Though it's possible that launch day will occur a little early this year. According to rumors, Galaxy Unpacked Summer 2024 could happen on July 10, which is one day sooner than it did the previous year. Considering that Samsung is a sponsor of the 2024 Olympic Games, which get underway in late July, it would make sense to showcase a new gadget during the competition.

The exact release date is yet unknown, but if previous releases are any indication, it may happen two weeks later, on July 24.

Design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

Although Samsung Display filed a patent application to the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) seeking to trademark the phrase "Ironflex," the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is expected to resemble the previous model. This might indicate that the design will be changing in some way.

Although the exact definition of Ironflex is unknown, we assume it relates to a more durable foldable screen. Dust resistance is one area that Samsung is reportedly investigating. Fans of foldable devices will have to "wait a little longer," but preparations are in action, according to TM Roh, Samsung's president of mobile, who stated as much in July of last year.

a well-known source's leak A 360-degree film and other high-resolution renderings of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 have been unveiled by SmartPrix. The phone looks almost exactly like the previous generation, except it's thicker, which could mean it has a bigger battery. Whether the cover screen will be larger is still up for debate. It appears next to the Z Fold 6 in a newly leaked promotional photo, however it's unclear if the cover screen is any bigger.

According to one report, Samsung could sell the Galaxy Z Flip 6 in light green, light blue, silver, and yellow. Later, leaker Evan Blass confirmed these colors and added that if you purchase your phone from Samsung, only white, black, and peach would be available as exclusive options.

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 could sport the same Corning Gorilla Armor as the Galaxy S24 Ultra, according to a different article on X. Because of this, the gadget would have superior glare and scratch resistance than many of its peers. A new cooling system and the potential for variants with 12 GB of RAM are also mentioned in the leak.

Display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5's larger cover display, which went from a 1.9-inch strip on earlier models to a 3.4-inch screen, was one of the device's main features. According to recent speculations, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 could expand on that capability even further.

Display researcher Ross Young speculates that Samsung may want to make the Galaxy Flip's outer screen larger overall. According to reports, this would have a 3.9-inch external display—quite large in comparison to previous flip foldables. The Razr+ has a 3.6-inch cover screen, compared to 3.4 inches on the Z Flip 5.

A report about the Galaxy Z Flip 6 suggests that the cover display may be increased from the 60Hz refresh rate of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 to 120Hz. Though this is just rumored to be in development, it's conceivable that Samsung won't be able to complete it in time, in which case we could not see this feature after all.

When the internal display opens, it will probably measure the same 6.7 inches, but Samsung is expected to employ a larger version of their very thin display glass. This action would ultimately result in a smaller crease and a firmer surface throughout the interior display.

Cameras on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

According to a Galaxy Z Flip 6 camera leak, Samsung may be developing a Flip 6 prototype, code-named B6, which is rumored to include a 50MP primary camera sensor. Compared to the current Galaxy Z Flip 5's 12MP sensor, this would be a significant improvement. Twitter leaker @Tech_Reve revealed in April 2023 what significant modifications the Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 would see.

The Galaxy Z Flip 6's improved camera is best supported thus far by regulatory filings connected to the device. According to the papers, the Flip would include a 50MP primary camera, as earlier speculations have suggested.

Galaxy Z Flip 6 from Samsung: Performance

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip seen in the Galaxy S24 range is expected to be used in the Galaxy Z Flip 6, while in some regions it may switch to the Exynos 2400 chip. After all, Samsung employed that tactic with the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus models.

But according to further rumors, Samsung will only employ the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the Galaxy Z Flip 6. This could result in an increase in performance as well as longer battery life, because the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra versions that use the Snapdragon chip have all shown significant improvements in endurance.

There could also be a 12GB RAM option available, albeit it might only be available in specific areas. If not, anticipate the same 256GB or 512GB of storage paired with 8GB of RAM found on the Z Flip 5.

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 may contain a 4,000 mAh battery, which would significantly increase the phone's power capacity, according to a leak that was uploaded to X. But according to FCC-sourced regulatory documents, the phone will only have a 3,790 mAh battery. The 3,700 mAh battery of the Z Flip 5 appears to be the most that will be available this year.

OUTLOOK on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

We're getting close to the end of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 rumor season if an early July release is planned. So far, everything we've heard seems good, especially in terms of improved cameras and a bigger external display. In addition to the capabilities offered by the S24 series, we would want to see Samsung include a more potent zoom and unique foldable Galaxy AI functions.

If our desire comes true, we should know rather soon.
