Samsung Galaxy z fold 6/ flip 6

2 minutes, 51 seconds Read

Samsung is reportedly increasing the display sizes on next year’s Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6. According to display industry insider Ross Young, both upcoming foldable phones from Samsung will feature larger foldable and cover displays.

Unfortunately, Young has only disclosed the size of the Galaxy Flip 6’s cover screen, which is said to be approaching 3.9 inches. That would make it the biggest cover screen on any flip phone to date, even larger than the Motorola Razr Plus’ massive 3.6-inch external display.

Young says he’s mentioned the exact display sizes for the Fold 6 and Flip 6 in the latest foldable report from Display Supply Chain Consultants, but we don’t have access to it.

We don’t know much about the Galaxy Fold 6 and Flip 6 just yet, but we previously heard from tipster Revegnus that the Galaxy Fold 6 would feature a new display aspect ratio. The reason for that could very well be the increase in the phone’s display size.

It was also previously reported that Samsung is “reverse engineering” the HUAWEI Mate X5 to slim down its next foldable’s body while increasing its battery capacity.

Meanwhile, a separate spec leak pointed out that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 could feature a 50MP primary camera, making it the first flip model from Samsung to ditch the 12MP sensor.

When will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 be released?

With the Z Flip 5 less than six months old, it’s safe to say we’re still some time away from the release of the upgraded Z Flip 6 – but we can take an educated guess on when it might drop based on previous releases.

Samsung has always preferred a summer launch for its Z Flip and Z Fold smartphones, far enough from the early-year flagship S releases not to steal their thunder. 

More specifically, Samsung tends to launch the foldables in August every year, suggesting we could see the Z Flip 6 appear alongside the Z Fold 6 at an event in or around August 2024. However, we’ll update this section if we hear differently. 

How much will the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 cost?

As with the release date, we’ve not yet heard much about the potential pricing of the Galaxy Z Flip 6. However, we can see that, over the past few generations of clamshell foldable, Samsung has begun to settle on a $999/£999 price tag. 

Design and screens

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 will look very different from the current Z Flip 5 if rumours are anything to go by.

Samsung started its journey from a small to large cover display on the Z Flip 5, going from 1.9 inches to 3.4 inches, but it’s still not the biggest cover display around. That’d go to the 3.6-inch Razr 40 Ultra.

With that in mind, Samsung has allegedly again set its sights on expanding the cover display of the upcoming Z Flip 6. One rumour from Naver claims that the Flip 6 will have a larger cover display with thinner bezels in a bid to make it even easier to use when fully folded.

That’s not the only source of the rumour either; Ross Young, an analyst with a pretty good track record when it comes to display-related predictions, got more specific with his claims. Per Young, the Z Flip 6 will allegedly measure close to 3.9 inches, a 0.5-inch boost on the current 3.4-inch option.
