Published

Recently in the unpacked event, Samsung introduced its new foldable flagship devices, including Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. The company has introduced many new features for the devices, which make a proper upgrade. However, for safety purposes, the company is still giving the IPX8-certified devices, which are continuing from the third-generation foldable. But soon, it will upgrade and bring the dust-resistant capability to the new Samsung Galaxy foldable.

As per the current certification of IPX8 rating, the Galaxy Foldables are very protected against water, but they lack dustproof capability. However, with the latest generation of foldable, Samsung has introduced a new, improved hinge called flex hinge. It is now way more secure than its predecessor. The newly designed hinge will help not to leave any gap between screens, so it adds extra security for them.

Samsung will introduce dust resistance in foldable as per consumer demand.

As per the report covered by BizWatch, the Samsung MX chief TM Roh stated that Samsung is trying to introduce dust resistance for the foldable phones, but due to several moving parts, it will take time to do perfectly based on consumer demand. The company will introduce it to the foldable soon.

Samsung President’s exact words, “We are well aware of consumer demand for dust proofing, and we are making various efforts to achieve this, but due to the nature of foldables, there are many moving parts, so dust proofing is difficult.” He further said that consumers need to “wait a little longer” to get foldable phones with dust resistance, noting that earlier foldable phones didn’t even have a water resistance rating.

Samsung appears close to introducing its sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6, in July at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. Now the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is spotted on the Geekbench database. Let’s take a closer look at the detailed information. 

Although the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is already spotted on the Geekbench database, Now, luckily, in development, its sibling’s forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 smartphone appeared on the Geekbench 6.3.0 benchmark database with the model number SM-F956U. 

The last letter ‘U’ in the model number points to the fact that this mode refers to a variant for the US market. It scored 1,964 points in the single-core round of the test and 6,619 points in the multi-core round. The listing reveals the existence of an octa-core processor with the codename pineapple, a 1+3+2+2 core configuration, and an Adreno 750 GPU. Apart from these, one chief core is clocked at 3.40 GHz, and the remaining three performance cores are at 3.15 GHz. 

This points out that Samsung could power the forthcoming Galaxy foldable with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3processor. The Geekbench database suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will arrive with 12GB of RAM and Android 14. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 already appeared on the 3C certification website, which suggested support for 25W fast charging, and now it is expected that this device will also visit other certification websites soon.

Samsung Prioritizes Faster Charging in 2024 Smartphones

The first quarter of 2024 is already over; during this interval, Samsung has introduced several Galaxy smartphones of particular belonging, such as the flagship Galaxy S24 series, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35, the mid-range ones, the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy F15, the budgetable ones, and many more. But the fact is, after being the latest smartphones, they have a lack of ‘charging speed.’ 

Undoubtedly, Samsung is leading the tech industry with its top-notch features, design, and larger batteries, as compared to other Android manufacturers, but despite all this, it has a massive lack of charging speed. Samsung usually attaches larger batteries to its Galaxy smartphones to enhance the users’ non-stop-using experience. But a larger battery isn’t worth it unless it has a good charging speed. 

On the other hand, Chinese manufacturers are equipping their smartphones with charging speeds north of 100W, whereas 45W is the maximum speed you can get on Galaxy smartphones. However, even 45W charging is quite rare among Galaxy phones. Samsung has launched most of the Galaxy devices in the last couple of years, including the flagship with support for 25W. 

Here we are making things easy for you if you are looking to buy a Galaxy smartphone that debuted in 2024 with the support of 45W charging speed by mentioning a list of devices: 


The list is quite short, even considering that the Galaxy F55, M55, and C55 are just rebranded variants of the same smartphone for different regions. Now Samsung is setting up to launch its next-generation foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, in July, but it is yet to be confirmed whether these devices will get a boost in charging speeds from 25W or not.
