Galaxy Z Fold 6 product page leaked, reveals everything before Unpacked

Alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 6, leakster Evan Blass shared the official product page for Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 6. It contains all the key features of the upcoming foldable along with detailed specifications. The Korean firm will launch both devices at its next Unpacked on July 10.

Samsung’s first dust and water-resistant foldable

Samsung was the first company to make a water-resistant foldable. It achieved this feat with its third-gen models in 2021. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 featured an IPX8 rating. The company didn’t improve things with the next two generations. But this year, it has made the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 dust-resistant thanks to an IP48 rating. Not as foolproof as the IP68 rating on other Galaxy flagships, but certainly a big durability upgrade.

Unfortunately, the rumors of a titanium frame don’t seem to have materialized. This leaked product page from Evleaks says the Galaxy Z Fold 6 has an Armor Aluminum frame with Gorilla Glass Victus 2 display protection. That’s unchanged from last year. There have been strong rumors of Samsung upgrading the new foldable to a titanium frame like the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Unless the latest leak is inaccurate, we are in for an anti-climactic end in this regard.

The other big change that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 brings to the table is in its design. The new Fold has a bixier body similar to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Samsung has slightly shortened the device (by 1.4mm) and made it wider (by 1mm) than the Fold 5. It is also significantly thinner. The upcoming foldable is just 5.6mm thick when unfolded and 12.1mm when folded. The 2023 model was 6.1mm and 13.4mm, respectively. It weighs 239 grams, down from 253 grams.

Despite a slimmer and lighter build, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 keeps a 4,400mAh battery. Its charging specs aren’t mentioned but earlier leaks said the new Fold will not charge faster than Fold 5, i.e., at 25W speeds. It will support wireless and reverse wireless charging. Note that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is getting slightly thinner and packing a bigger battery (4,000mAh instead of 3,700mAh). There is no titanium on Samsung’s new Flip model either.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 has a bigger and wider cover display

Thanks to a wider design and slimmer bezels, the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s cover display now measures 6.3 inches diagonally, marginally larger than Fold 5’s 6.2-inch panel. It is wider than before, closer to a regular smartphone screen. The Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel on the outside should boast a 120Hz refresh rate like the main display. The inner folding screen still measures 7.6 inches, though. It supports Samsung’s S Pen and is incredibly bright at 2,600 nits.

Leaks have previously hinted at new AI-powered S Pen features but we don’t see any on this leaked spec sheet. However, Samsung touts enhanced productivity with Galaxy AI features such as Note Assist and Interpreter. The Galaxy Z Fold 6’s large screen makes it a handy tool for live translation and transcription of spoken languages. The Flip model can show translated text on its cover screen. It’s unclear if the Fold has the same feature.

Samsung didn’t change the camera hardware on the new Fold

Unlike the Galaxy Z Flip 6, which is getting a new 50MP primary camera, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 comes with the same camera hardware. We have a triple camera setup on the back featuring a 50MP main shooter, a 12MP ultrawide lens, and a 10MP 3x zoom camera. On the front, there is a 10MP selfie camera, while another selfie camera sits on the inside. It’s a 4MP under-display unit that exists pretty much only for video calls. You won’t want to capture selfies with it.

Samsung says the 50MP primary camera can capture lossless photos at 2x zoom. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 can also record 8K videos, while the Flip is limited to 4K videos. Both foldables are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (For Galaxy) chipset. This Samsung-exclusive SoC also powered the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The new Fold has 12GB RAM as standard and comes in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage variants. The Flip is also getting a 12GB RAM variant this year.

The rest of the setup remains unchanged, meaning that the big foldable misses out on Wi-Fi 7. Like last year, Samsung is limiting it to Wi-Fi 6E. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 boasts stereo speakers, Samsung DeX support, NFC, UWB (Ultra Wideband) Bluetooth v5.3, and USB-C 3.2 Gen 1. It has two SIM slots and also supports eSIM, though you cannot use more than two SIMs at once. Stay tuned for the official announcement next Wednesday, July 10.
