The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 appears close to taking the floor. It appears that Samsung is actively working on its next generation of foldables. 

Now it’s time for the new upgrade in the foldable industry: the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is on the way. Recent reports are unveiling more about the device, increasing enthusiasm among fans. The reports reveal the exclusive Galaxy Z Fold 6 design renders, as well as presenting a 360-degree video and 5K renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 6. 

The design renders, in collaboration Smartprix & OnLeaks, unveil the 360-degree design of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with completely flat sides similar to the Galaxy S24 series. In the 360-degree video, it appears that the device is in a dark gray color, probably the Phantom Black color. 

It is also noticed that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 has the same boxy frame as the Galaxy S24, plus the same ports housed on the top and bottom, comprising three microphones and a speaker grill at the top, whereas the USB-C port, another microphone, and a speaker grill are on the bottom side. 

The 3D renders also demonstrate the similar Galaxy S24 Ultra-style new speaker grill design on the upcoming foldable. The power button, along with a merged fingerprint scanner, the volume rockers on the right, and the SIM card slot on the left of the device. It appears that it has a triple camera setup and a punch-hole selfie camera on the outer screen. 

It is being speculated by the renders that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 features an inner screen of 153.5 x 132.5 x 6.1 mm while unfolded, whereas the front measures 6.2 inches. It is expected that a more drastic change will arrive with the next generation of foldables. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will be similarly thicker than its predecessor, which is 6.1mm. The brand may also attach a similar droplet-style hinge. 

Expected Key Specs of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 

Since Samsung has not revealed any official specifications yet, expectations are that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will feature a 6.2-inch cover display and a 7.6-inch inner display, which will be dynamic AMOLED with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The cover display most probably features the new Corning Gorilla Glass Armor for protection and can also expect a higher peak brightness of about 2,600 Nits.

Jumping on the camera, it may get a 50MP, a 12MP, and a 10MP camera setup, plus a 10MP selfie camera and a 4MP under-display camera. The memory package will include up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of UFS 4.0 internal storage. The brand may be powered by the Snapdragon 8 G3en 3 and run Android 14-based One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. 

And it is expected that the brand will announce it by the end of July 2024 at a Galaxy Unpacked event.

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).
