Samsung introduced the new foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold 6. The 2024 model received a few minor improvements: it became slightly stronger, lighter and underwent a few other changes. However, the price of the new product has increased compared to previous models.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 6 is equipped with a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, optimized specifically for Samsung. An enlarged evaporation chamber is used for cooling. The device has 12 GB of RAM and storage options of 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB. The battery capacity has remained unchanged since the Fold 3 and is 4400 mAh, writes ITC.

The phone has become stronger and more resistant to drops thanks to an improved hinge design and improved materials. The inner flexible glass has also become stronger. The device received IP48 protection, which is better than the previous IPX8, where X indicates no resistance to dust. The number 4 means that the device is protected against foreign objects of 1 millimeter and larger.

The external display of the Galaxy Fold 6 has become slightly larger – 6.3 inches versus 6.2 inches in the previous model. The screen has become wider and has an aspect ratio of 22.1:9. The resolution is 2376×968 pixels, and the refresh rate is 120 Hz. The size of the internal display in unfolded form remained 7.6 inches, but it became wider and closer to a square shape – a ratio of 20.9:18 with a resolution of 2160×1856 pixels. The maximum brightness reaches 2600 nits.

Cameras have almost not changed compared to the previous model. Device has a 50-megapixel main camera, 10-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and an updated 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera for improved shooting in low-light conditions.
Galaxy Fold 6 has become thinner. When folded, its dimensions are 68.1×153.5×12.1 mm, when unfolded – 132.6×153.5×5.6 mm. The weight has decreased from 253 g in Fold 5 to 239 g.

Galaxy Fold 6 will receive Galaxy AI artificial intelligence features which first appeared in the Galaxy S24 series earlier this year. A special advantage of Samsung's new folding devices is the ability to display translations on an external display. The S Pen on the Fold 6 will also integrate with Galaxy AI features via Smart Select and Sketch to image, which use generative AI to create images based on rough sketches. Like the S24 series devices, the new product will receive OS and security updates for 7 years.
