First Galaxy Z Fold 6 Render Reveals a Boxier Frame, Retaining the Same Overall Design

Samsung’s next foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold 6, is expected to arrive in the second half of this year, possibly around August. However, as the gap between the release schedule closes in, leaks have started to make their way online, and one of the first CAD renders for the device has been published by Smartprix in collaboration with tipster OnLeaks.

Samsung Goes Flat with the Fold 6

The renders don’t show any major design changes, except for the fact that the sides and the hinges are completely flat now. The phone opens up to a full flat surface, not just on the inside, but on the outside too. This “boxier” design also minimizes the panel gap between the two halves when folded.

On the flip side, however, there is nothing much else. The camera layout, outer design, and aspect ratio are more or less the same. There were some expectations that Samsung may adopt a similar design to that of, say OnePlus Open or the upcoming Pixel Fold 2, but it didn’t.

That is not to say that there are no changes in the overall dimensions. The inner screen measures 7.6″ diagonally at 153.5 x 132.5 x 6.1 mm, 1.4 mm shorter and 2.6 mm wider than the Z Fold 5. Meanwhile, the outer display maintains its predecessor’s size at 6.2 inches.

The Hardware

At this point, there are only a few credible sources that share the internals of this device. We can, however, predict that it’ll use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, 12 or 16 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

Samsung has also promised 7 years of OS updates for the S24 series, so it is highly likely that the same pattern will flow here too. Not only that, but at the second Unpacked of this year, there is a huge possibility that the Galaxy Ring will also be released alongside Samsung’s foldable lineup.

This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
