Galaxy Z Fold 6 may be company’s thinnest foldable phone yet with same camera

Published

on


This year, Samsung unveiled their fifth generation of leaflets, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5, which came out as the most anticipated ones. After its launch, things have started to surface regarding the next version of the foldables, which may debut in the second quarter of 2024. For its next leaflet, the Galaxy Z Fold 6, Samsung has plans to use an improved vibration motor. A theory from an article suggests that Samsung may introduce a new vibration motor for the Galaxy Z Fold 6. By bringing this enhancement, haptics can be upgraded well.

The sensation that a touch-based user interface (UI) provides is known as haptics. By communicating and reinforcing information, haptics may improve the user experience as a whole. In order to enhance interactions, they are commonly paired with audio and visual components. It is also claimed that the motor of the Z Fold 6 may not differ significantly from the models MIX Fold 3, Find N3, and Magic V2. Through this change, we can expect better feedback and performance ratios in the future.

Also, there have been rumors that the next foldable will have a slimmer hinge, a more streamlined chassis, and a different screen aspect ratio. As reported by The Elec, Samsung is disassembling the Huawei Mate X5 to gain knowledge about how to reduce the bulk of its next foldable device while increasing its battery life. Whatever the enhancements may be, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has the biggest drawback: thickness. The gadget measures a closed thickness of 13.4 mm.

Compared to the Mate X5, which is 11.1 mm, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3, which is 10.9 mm, and the OnePlus Open, which is 11.7 mm thick, Samsung falls short in these criteria. Another thing to be noted is that the Mate X3 and MixFold 3 from Huawei and Xiaomi have a battery capacity of 4,800 mAh, but the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has a 4,400 mAh battery. Even after sporting a thicker one, Samsung fails to bring a bigger battery. To emerge as a leader in the foldable market, Samsung should make efforts to showcase improvements over this year’s model in their new offering for the following year.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 could come with the same camera setup as Fold 5

Samsung might make the Z Fold 6 better, but it doesn’t look like they’ll improve the camera. A famous source named Ice Universe, says that the 2024 folding phone will keep the same 50MP camera as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Fold 4.

Starting from last year, Samsung has given the Fold phones a 50MP main camera. This was a big step up from the 12MP camera in the Galaxy Z Fold 3. If the gossip is correct, the 2024 foldable will also have this main camera, which Samsung also uses in its S series top-tier phones.

Samsung Galaxy S25’s advanced AI novelties could boost its price

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brightness & Adaptive Color Tone

Samsung started working on the Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to be launched early next year. This forthcoming device is expected to be priced higher as compared to its predecessor. 

Samsung will expand its high-end S series by introducing a next-gen smartphone series named the Galaxy S25. It’s too early to discuss the Galaxy S25, but leaks and rumors are doing their jobs by offering more details about the upcoming Galaxy S25. This upcoming device is expected to cost more than the current S-series devices. 

The reason behind this report appears to be that a Galaxy S25 will be more expensive than a Galaxy S24 due to its higher manufacturing costs. The US chip designer Qualcomm could push the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 into production in the second half of the year. This latest chipset is expected to boost AI processing. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be a truly advanced chip, but its high-end tech advancements might lead to higher costs, which could translate into a price hike for the upcoming Galaxy S25. The report suggested that, according to a recent prediction from industry watcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm might increase the cost of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 by 25–30% compared to the Gen 3 solution. 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be manufactured on the 3nm N3E process by TSMC; it’s the same technique used to build Apple’s A18 Pro chip. This shift will supposedly cause the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to be 25–30% more expensive than its predecessor. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 costs around $190–$200; by this metric, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might cost $260. 

However, Samsung could deal with the higher expenses of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the Galaxy S25 by absorbing the cost or reducing the quality in other areas, such as the battery or display, but this could be risky, such as switching to its in-house Exynos 2500 chip. The upcoming chipset will be fabricated from TSMC’s most advanced process and should bring performance gains to the CPU, GPU, and NPU (AI processing).
