Galaxy Z Flip 6: Latest News, Rumors, and Leaks

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be an iterative upgrade over the Z Flip 5 and will consist of a performance bump and some camera improvements. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 was a massive sales success and got universal critical acclaim. There are very few complaints with the product.

The Z Flip 5 is also one of the most durable and reliable Flip phones in the market. It features an IPX8 rating, and the hinge is really strong. The phone also has Samsung’s signature software experience and a long update promise. While there weren’t many problems with the Z Flip 5, the camera hardware could’ve been better. The battery life is good, but it’s nowhere near comparable slab phones at this price range.

With the Z Flip 6, Samsung might fix many of these issues. The Z Flip 5 already has one of the best outer screens for a Flip phone, and the upcoming one might make it even better and more practical. The Z Flip 6 was spotted on the BIS certification website, and it’s set to launch soon.

News 1: The Galaxy Z Flip 6 might get a new 50MP primary sensor. The Z Flip 5 has a rather small 12MP 1/1.76″ sensor. This is very out of date with sensors, and it doesn’t take very detailed photos. The video recording and low-light photos suffer due to this small sensor size.

Thankfully, Samsung could bring the GN3 or GN5 sensor to the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The  GN3 is a 1/1.56″ sensor, a much higher-resolution sensor at 50MP. This will finally bring the photo quality closer to flagships. Samsung’s S24+ has the 50MP GN3, so that’s a decent camera system for Samsung standards. Some rumors mention a 2X telephoto, but we’re not sure about the accuracy of this.

News 2: Another major upgrade on the Z Flip 6 is potentially to the battery life. The Flip 5 has a 3700mAh battery, which is pretty tiny for 2024 standards. The base S24 got an upgrade in battery capacity to 4000mAh. We expect a similar 4000mAH battery on the Z Flip 6. A larger battery will drastically improve the SOT of the device.

News 3: Samsung is allegedly using Ironflex displays for the Z Flip 6. We’re unsure what this term means, but it could refer to much better durability.

The cover display is getting even larger and more practical with the Flip 6. Leaks from a reliable display supply chain analyst claim that the size is close to 3.9″ now for the outer screen of the Flip 6. Recently, they entered the multiple prototype stage and will enter mass production soon.

News 4: Finally, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will get all the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for the Galaxy chipset. We saw this on the S24 series, which performs very well. It’s an efficient and powerful SOC, and this will improve both gaming and multitasking performance. The new ISP will also enable better photos, which helps with the device’s longevity. The 8 Gen 3 gives a lot of performance headroom to work with.

Expected features

We expect all the Galaxy AI features to make it to the Z Flip 6. The Summarize feature, the photo and video editing suite, Circle to search, live translation of calls and texts, slowing down videos, object removal from photos, etc. All of these will make their way over to the new Flip 6. The entire S24 series gets 7 years of major Android OS updates. We expect the Flip 6 to get the same support.

Expected release window

  • The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is expected to be released in late July 2024

The Flip 5 and Fold 5 were announced at the second Galaxy Unpacked event in July 2023. Samsung’s second event is typically after H1, so the Z series flagships for 2024 will also get their announcements in July 2024, and they might share the stage with the Galaxy Ring and the Galaxy Watch 6 series. This is also when the One UI 7 Betas will begin going live.

Should you wait for the Galaxy Z Flip 6?

The Z Flip 6 seems like a good camera upgrade and fixes everything wrong with the Flip 5. It will have a larger primary sensor for faster capture time, more details, better videos, and better low-light imagery. It will fix the battery gripes with a larger physical battery. It’ll also have the latest chip and a lot more updates. It doesn’t make sense to buy the Flip 5 at full price, and we recommend waiting for the Flip 6.
