What we wish to see

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is formally right here. Individuals who pre-ordered are getting the telephones of their arms, and the remainder of us are fascinated by the longer term. Now we have to imagine that the longer term consists of a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 to additional construct on the folding legacy Samsung has created for itself.

Shockingly, regardless of how not too long ago the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 got here out, there are already just a few rumours in regards to the subsequent mannequin. And out of doors of the rumours, we now have some upgrades we might prefer to see to the following large foldable from Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 launch date and worth

We’re removed from the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 launch, however we anticipate it to return out in August 2024, following the identical launch cadence because the earlier fashions. Summer time is a superb launch schedule for the foldable telephones, so we’re okay with Samsung sticking with that.

What we’re hoping to see modified is the value. Now that Samsung has six generations to iterate on folding shows, we might like to see the telephones develop into extra reasonably priced. A $1,800 beginning worth remains to be doable, however we might like to see it launch nearer to $1,500 to get slightly nearer to conventional telephones. We would not anticipate to see them come down as little as a top-of-the-line conventional flagship just like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which begins at $1,200, however being inside just a few hundred would make the foldable extra attainable.


Rumours in regards to the design have been sparse up to now, however the one factor we have seen talked about is a change to the side ratio of the screens, which might change the general look and form of the telephone. Sadly, we have not heard a lot about how the ratio will change, however we now have to imagine Samsung will make it shorter and wider to align with the design utilized by the Pixel Fold. We might undoubtedly desire this, as the present lengthy and this design is kind of completely different from conventional smartphones, which is the performance the primary display screen is supposed to supply.

After all, we might additionally prefer to see an extra discount within the crease in the course of the folding display screen. Every iteration of Samsung’s foldable telephones has barely lowered how intrusive the crease is, and the Fold 5 made it even smaller. Maybe with one other yr of improvement, Samsung might get rid of the crease utterly, however time will inform.


The identical issues we mentioned in regards to the design apply to the screens. We wish a facet ratio change to make the exterior display screen slightly wider and shorter. In any other case, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 screens are glorious, so there’s not a lot we might change going into the following one. The two,176 x 1,812 decision of the exterior show is comparatively excessive, so it could most likely be unrealistic to anticipate it to go up for the following mannequin.

The dimensions of the shows will most likely stay the identical or related, as it could be impractical to supply a lot bigger ones. Samsung has talked about making foldable tablets and laptops, so the corporate does have bigger folding screens on its radar, however to be a telephone, it must hold a sure degree of portability.

We would not thoughts seeing the refresh rate bumped to 144Hz from the 120Hz at the moment provided, however that is additionally unlikely.

{Hardware} and specs

The specs of the Z Fold 6 might enhance over the Z Fold 5, no less than in choose locations. The telephone has a fantastic processor within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. We might anticipate regardless of the newest flagship chip is on the time to be within the Z Fold 6, whether or not that be a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 or possibly even a Snapdragon 9. The identical is true of the RAM, which is already 12GB within the present fashions. We’ve not seen many telephones pushing 16GB of RAM but, so we would not anticipate to see greater than 12GB of RAM.

Charging speeds may very well be higher. The 25W wired charging is much from industry-leading. Because the telephone has an enormous 4400mAh battery, 50W or better charging would considerably enhance the Galaxy Z Fold 6. There have not been any rumours suggesting that would occur, however we might actually prefer to see it.

With rumours that Apple might supply as a lot as 2TB of area within the iPhone 15 Extremely, Samsung ought to comply with alongside and supply that a lot area within the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Contemplating this system is supposed to function each a telephone and pill, it is sensible to double the storage and let individuals go loopy with their telephones.


Sadly, the primary large leak means that the cameras will stay the identical between the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. The 50MP important, 10MP telephoto, and 12MP ultrawide sensors are superb, however it could be good to see Samsung borrow the lenses from the Galaxy S23 Extremely, particularly the 10X telephoto shooter. Whereas it would not appear to be that’ll be the case, it is early sufficient that Samsung might change its plans.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 rumours: The story up to now

We’re nonetheless very early within the hearsay cycle for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, so not a lot has leaked but. At this level, we’re working extra round what we might prefer to see improved over the present mannequin, however we’ll replace this piece as extra rumours come out concerning the newest foldable from Samsung.

June 20, 2023: Leaker says Galaxy Z Fold 6 might have a unique side ratio, the identical cameras

Famous leaker Revegnus claimed the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 might have a unique side ratio than the Z Fold 4 and Z Fold 5. They did not get into specifics, so we’re left to invest whether or not they’ll make it nearer to the ratio of the Google Pixel Fold or one thing else completely. In the identical submit, the leaker mentioned the Fold 6 may have the identical cameras because the Fold 5, which is disappointing.

July 28, 2023: TM Roh mentioned that we would have to attend slightly longer for mud proofing

The most important sturdiness situation with Samsung’s foldable is the shortage of mud resistance. TM Roh, Samsung’s Cellular chief, is conscious, and the corporate is engaged on it. “We’re effectively conscious of client demand for mud proofing, and we’re making numerous efforts to realize this, however because of the nature of foldables, there are various shifting elements, so mud proofing is tough,” he mentioned to Korean website BizWatch. He particularly mentioned “wait slightly longer,” which might imply it is prepared in time for the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
