Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 to Miss Out on Wi-Fi 7 Compatibility

Samsung’s sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, are close to taking the floor at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July. Maybe the Galaxy Z Flip 6 won’t support Wi-Fi 7.

Despite leading the foldable market, Samsung’s Galaxy foldable devices still lack a few features, and it’s the same case with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6. The report says the forthcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 reveals that the phone will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra is the first and only Galaxy smartphone that supports Wi-Fi 7 facilities. 

Since the brand has already introduced Wi-Fi 7 on the existing Galaxy S24 Ultra, it was expected that the upcoming foldable device would also bring the same Wi-Fi support, but unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore. This is being speculated by the FCC certification, which hinted that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. However, the device potentially has Wi-Fi disabled at a firmware or software level, as we have already seen on the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. 

All Galaxy S24 variants arrived with the essential hardware on the Snapdragon variants, but since the Exynos chip that powers them in most countries tops out at Wi-Fi 6E, Samsung chose to artificially restrict Wi-Fi 7 on all the Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ units regardless of the chip inside. The Galaxy Z Flip 6 might have lower specs as compared to other Galaxy flagships, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to support future Wi-Fi 7 for better futureproofing.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

Samsung Galaxy S23’s May Security Patch Cause Unknown Error on Google Wallet

Published

By


Samsung has delivered this month’s May 2024 security patch for the Galaxy S23 device. Now, users of the device from several regions are reporting that after installing the patch, their Google Wallet isn’t working seamlessly. 

A couple of days ago, Google officially released a statement saying that from June 10th, Google Wallet will only be compatible with devices that at least run on Android 9 or above. Now the report is saying that Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S23, users are facing issues while using Google Wallet. 

A recent report suggest that a lot of Samsung Galaxy S23 users have reported through the Korean manufacturer’s community forums that, after installing the May 2024 security patch, they cannot use the Google Wallet seamlessly and flawlessly as before. These users have claimed that right after downloading the latest Android security patch, the Google Wallet app displays an unknown error message indicating that the phone does not meet the required security standards, causing them to be unable to make contactless payments. 

Galaxy S23 users are not even able to access the cards that were linked to the platform. Noticeably, a huge percentage of reports come from Galaxy S23 users belonging to Europe; however, this issue has also been detected in other regions, including Australia, the US, or the United Arab Emirates, and other devices like the Galaxy S22 or the Pixel 8 Pro. 

If you are going through this inconvenient issue, here’s a temporary solution. You can uninstall the application updates in the Google Play Store. This will help you in a way; the error message will still appear in the app, but it will let you make payments with it again.
