Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 officially announced with a heftier price tag

0

At the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event today, Samsung has officially announced their latest flip smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 6. This will be the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip 5 from last year, and yes, there will be upgrades. Unfortunately, it seems that the upgrades might not be as substantial as we would have liked, at least not enough to justify a hike in price.

Starting with the display, things remain unchanged. The foldable display measures 6.7-inches and uses a Dynamic AMOLED 2x panel with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. It maintains the same 2640×1080 resolution. The external display also remains the same at 3.4-inches and uses a Super AMOLED 60Hz panel. In a way this is good.

There were rumors suggesting Samsung could downgrade to the use of LCD, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. Samsung has also apparently made the display more durable with the use of Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

In terms of performance, this is where most of your gains will be seen and felt. The Galaxy Z Flip 6 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the same chipset found in the flagship Galaxy S24 series. It comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but there is an option to go to 512GB. It also packs a 4,000mAh battery with 25W wired charging.

As for its cameras, the phone will feature a dual camera setup on the back. This includes a 50MP wide-angle with Dual Pixel AF, OIS, and an aperture of f/1.8. It is accompanied by a 12MP ultrawide with an aperture of f/2.2. Lastly, there will be a 10MP selfie cam.

On the software front, as expected, Samsung will be bundling Galaxy AI with the phone. You can expect all the main Galaxy AI features, which includes features like Suggested Replies, Photo Ambient, and more. If you’re interested in picking up the new Galaxy Z Flip 6, it is available for pre-order starting today with a price of $1,099, about $100 more expensive than the previous model.
