Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 comes with some exciting upgrades. The 7.6-inch inner screen now boasts a max brightness of 2,600 nits, up from 1,750 nits, making it much easier to see in bright daylight. The outer screen remains a useful 6.3 inches, with slight improvements in size and resolution for a better overall viewing experience.

Under the hood, the Z Fold 6 is powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, which promises faster and more efficient performance. You’ll also get an extra hour of LTE internet use and two more hours of video playback, perfect for those long days out. Design-wise, the Fold 6 is 14 grams lighter and a bit more compact, making it easier to carry around. It’s 1.4mm shorter, 1mm wider, and 1.3mm thinner when folded, and 1.4mm shorter, 2.7mm wider, and 0.5mm thinner when unfolded. The improved Armor Aluminum frame ensures better durability without adding extra weight. A minor yet noteworthy change is the secondary screen being 0.1 inches larger. The main display resolution has slightly changed to 2160×1856 from 2176×1812. However, the cameras, battery capacity (4400mAh), and Gorilla Glass Victus 2 cover glass remain the same.

The design of the Z Fold 6 also focuses on functionality and portability. Despite its large display, the device is slim and lightweight, making it pocket-friendly. Samsung has improved the hinge mechanism, offering a smoother folding experience. The Z Fold 6 also supports the S Pen, making it a versatile tool for note-taking and productivity on the go.

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 is also getting some cool updates. The main camera is now a powerful 50MP, up from 12MP, while retaining the same f/1.8 aperture for stunning photos. Another significant change is the switch to an IPS display from OLED, which might affect color quality slightly but could improve durability.

Equipped with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor and upgraded to 12GB of RAM from 8GB, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 ensures smooth multitasking and performance. The higher capacity 4,000mAh battery (up from 3,700mAh) extends internet usage by two hours and video playback by three hours, making it a reliable companion for prolonged use. When folded, the device is 0.2mm thinner, with other dimensions and weight remaining unchanged. A notable aesthetic update is that the entire phone reflects your chosen color, not just one panel on the back, for a more unified and stylish look. Like the Fold 6, the Flip 6 is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

Display Comparison: Z Flip 4, 5, and 6

We see some exciting changes when comparing the display sizes across the Z Flip series. The Z Flip 6 has a 6.7-inch inner screen and a 3.4-inch outer screen, consistent with the Z Flip 5, but a significant jump from the Z Flip 4’s 1.9-inch outer screen. This increase provides a more useful and interactive external display, enhancing functionality without unfolding the device. Additionally, the Z Flip 6’s switch to an IPS display for the outer screen, from OLED, indicates a focus on durability and other display qualities.
