The 50-megapixel sensor should offer better shots, improved low-light performance and AI-powered portraits compared to the 12-megapixel main sensor in the Galaxy Z Flip 5, while the ultra-wide camera is set to deliver improved low-light and HDR performance compared to the 12-megapixel ultra-wide in the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

However, you’ll have to wait for our full review for our final verdict on the image quality and camera performance. 

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is powered by a newer processor 

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 packs the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy processor found in the new Galaxy Z Fold 6 and the top-end Galaxy S24 Ultra. 

This chipset is an updated version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy inside the Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5. In the case of the Fold, the processor is set to deliver a 14% increase in CPU performance and a 25% increase in GPU performance to the phone, so we’d expect to see similar advantages on the Z Flip 6. 

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 includes useful AI features 

Samsung’s focus for 2024 is undoubtedly AI, and this journey continues with the Galaxy Z Flip 6.

Some key AI features coming to the Flip series this year include Generative Wallpaper, suggested replies in chats based on your previous conversations and two-way, real-time translations using the two displays in Flex Mode and photo editing capabilities to name just a few. 

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 packs a bigger battery 

The battery life wasn’t the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s strong suit – even for a foldable – so the fact that this year’s smartphone is getting a bigger battery is exciting news.

The 4000mAh battery in the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is the largest yet in the Flip series, matching the size of the one found in the Galaxy S24. Most importantly, it’s bigger than the 3700mAh battery that powered the Z Flip 5.
