For Samsung’s foldable enthusiasts, especially those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, here’s a small glimpse for you. 

Leaks and rumors always spoil the surprises regarding upcoming Galaxy devices that Samsung hides for its big events, such as Galaxy Unpacked. The same case has happened for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 unit since rumors unveiled a small glimpse of what looks like a real Galaxy Z Fold 6. A leaked image showcases the actual look of the device. 

However, in the image, only the top of the smartphone is visible, so there’s not enough to guess more here, but something is better than nothing, as this image confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s design will be flatter and also have sharper edges and corners as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It seems that the phone has a wider cover screen. That could just be a result of the angle at which the photo was taken, but there have been tons of indicators that Samsung is putting a certain extent of a of a larger cover display on the next Fold, and now the image appears to confirm that.

The Korean giant is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim that will have a fair measurement of larger displays on the inside and outside while also having a thinner profile. This variant is expected to arrive by the end of this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are on their way to make their debuts at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.

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.
