Samsung is said to be working on its next-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and the Galaxy Z Flip 6, which are expected to be unveiled in July this year. Rumors about the upcoming Z-series foldable phones have been circulating since November, gradually leaking details about the devices. The latest leak, courtesy of GalaxyClub, reveals that the Z Flip 6 will come with a larger battery compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5.
Galaxy Z Flip 6 to feature a 4,000mAh battery
The Galaxy Z Flip 3, which made its debut in August 2021, was equipped with a 3,300mAh battery. Samsung then increased the battery size to 3,700mAh on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. However, according to the new leak, the South Korean tech giant is testing larger batteries for the Galaxy Z Flip 6.
The leak suggests that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will feature a dual-battery configuration. One of the batteries will have a capacity of 1,097mAh (rated value), while the other will have a capacity of 2,790mAh (rated value), resulting in a combined capacity of 3,887mAh (rated value). To put this into perspective, the Galaxy S24 is equipped with a 3,880mAh (rated value) battery, with a typical value of 4,000mAh. This suggests that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will likely offer a typical battery capacity of 4,000mAh.
Larger displays and upgraded camera sensor
In addition to the larger battery, a recent report suggests that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will feature larger internal and external displays compared to its predecessor. While the exact size of the internal display is not yet known, it is rumored to come with a 3.9-inch outer screen. In contrast, the Z Flip 5 has a 6.7-inch foldable FHD+ AMOLED display on the inside and a 3.4-inch external screen.
Furthermore, it is speculated that the Z Flip 6 will replace the 12-megapixel primary camera of the previous model with an upgraded 50-megapixel camera sensor. Additionally, it is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy and feature the Galaxy AI capabilities.
A major upgrade over its predecessor
Based on the information that has surfaced so far, it seems that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be a significant improvement over the Z Flip 5. With a larger battery, bigger displays, and an upgraded camera sensor, Samsung’s next foldable phone is shaping up to be an impressive device. As we await its official unveiling in July, more details about the Galaxy Z Flip 6 are likely to emerge, giving us a clearer picture of what to expect from Samsung’s latest foldable phone.
