Although their launch is a month away, their design, features, and specifications have leaked already.

According to tipster @chunvn8888, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be priced at INR 1,04,999 ($1,257) for the 256GB version. The 256GB version of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will reportedly be priced at INR 1,59,999 ($1,915). The pricing of higher storage variants of both phones will be higher than the base models.

In comparison, the base models of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 were priced at INR 99,999 ($1,197) and INR 154,999 ($1,860), respectively. So, this appears to be a price hike of INR 5,000 for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and the Galaxy Z Fold 6

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 will reportedly continue with the same design as its predecessor. However, it features a better hinge and a less visible crease on the internal display. It has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, 8GB/12GB RAM, and 256GB/512GB. It will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery.

It will reportedly feature a 50MP primary camera, capable of offering 2x optical quality zoom through in-sensor crop. It will reportedly have a 10MP selfie camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. It could run Android 14-based One UI 6.1.1 out of the box and come with a promise of seven major Android OS updates.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 will reportedly have a titanium frame and a more boxy design. It is expected to feature a wider and shorter screen for improved usability. It will use the same cameras as its predecessor. However, it could be powered by a slightly bigger battery and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.

Both upcoming foldable phones from Samsung could have a capacitive fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and an IPX8 rating for water resistance.

Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be a super upgrade for aggressive Galaxy Z Flip 3 users

Samsung’s clamshell Galaxy Z Flip foldables offer customers a user experience that’s mostly on par with other Galaxy flagships. However, the clamshell form factor forces Samsung to make some sacrifices

One such sacrifice is battery capacity. The first two Galaxy Z Flips—the OG Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Flip 3—had paltry 3,300 mAh batteries that necessitated charging twice a day.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was the first phone in the series to get mainstream attention, and there are many who are using it today. Their biggest complaint? Battery life.

A 3,300 mAh battery simply isn’t enough for any smartphone in this day and age. It’s especially low for phones with a flagship processor and high-end features like a 120Hz display.

Samsung brought a larger battery to the lineup with the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The Z Flip 4 sports a 3,700 mAh battery, and so does 2023’s Galaxy Z Flip 5. The larger capacity brought some battery life gains on those models, but the gains were not major enough to entice Galaxy Z Flip 3 owners.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 users will get a huge battery upgrade with the Flip 6
But Samsung is all set to change that. The upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 will feature a 4,000 mAh battery, and with the efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip under its hood, we can expect some serious battery life improvements.

The base Galaxy S24 model has a 4,000 mAh battery under the hood, and whether you get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 variant or the one powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 2400, the Galaxy S24 offers excellent endurance on a single charge.

There is no reason the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be any different. In fact, since the cover screen on Galaxy Z Flip smartphones can be used for tasks such as taking selfies, checking notifications, and replying to messages, those who purchase a Flip 6 will be able to get more mileage compared to Galaxy S24 users, as they won’t have to use the more power-hungry main display for everything.

For Galaxy Z Flip3 owners, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will also offer upgrades like a bigger cover screen, brighter foldable display, 50MP primary camera, substantially faster performance, more storage, and faster charging.

It will also include the full Galaxy AI package that isn’t available on the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Last but not least, Samsung is likely to guarantee seven years of updates for the Galaxy Z Flip 6, which will make its software considerably more future-proof.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 6 at its Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris on July 10.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 is latest Samsung foldable to get June 2024 security update

Samsung was a bit late with this month’s security update, probably because it was busy rolling out the One UI 6.1 update to compatible Galaxy devices. However, after it started rolling out the June 2024 security update to the Galaxy S24, it released the update to many more high-end phones quickly.

The new security update is rolling out to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in Europe and the US.

In Europe, the update comes with firmware version F711BXXS8HXF2. The factory-unlocked version of the Galaxy ZFlip3 is getting the new update with firmware version F711U1TBS7IXF1 in the US. The update is currently available on AT&T, Cellular South, and Dish Wireless networks in the US. Other carriers could release the update soon.

The June 2024 security patch, included in the new update, fixes 59 security loopholes discovered in previous software versions. The update doesn’t include any new features or performance enhancements. The phone received several new features a few weeks ago with the One UI 6.1 update.
