The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, the popular foldable that unf/tech/33354/samsung-galaxy-z-fold-6-unveiled-with-built-in-google-gemini-at-unpacked-july-2024/urls into a tablet, debuted at Unpacked. No, there aren't any major hardware changes on the next-generation foldable, but as you might have guessed, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is leaning heavily into AI.

Galaxy AI made its big splash at the start of the year with the new Galaxy S24 series (before landing on older devices). And now, Galaxy AI is continuing its domination across the Galaxy universe, injecting itself into the Galaxy Z Fold 6 — and other new devices unveiled at Unpacked, including the Z Flip 6, Galaxy Ring, and Galaxy Watch Ultra.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 is packed with AI-powered tools from the Galaxy AI suite:

  • Note Assist (translation and summaries via Samsung Notes)
  • PDF overlay translation (text translation in PDFs)
  • Composer (generates text for emails and social media apps)
  • Live Translate (translates conversations on Samsung's native calling app and third-party apps like WhatsApp)
  • Portrait Studio (creates 3D avatars based on your portraits)
  • Interpreter (Galaxy AI steps in and translates languages between two participants)
  • Instant Slow-mo (instantly slow down videos)

Interpreter is particularly useful on the Galaxy Z Fold 6, as it comes with a new conversation mode that lets both parties view translations on the main and cover displays. Plus, Interpreter supports one-way translation, so you can have it "listen" to something and translate it for you.

There's also a new Sketch-to-Image Galaxy AI feature, which offers image-based options from your sketches and drawings. You will also get the Google Gemini app built into the Z Fold 6 (and other Galaxy Z series devices). After saying "Hey Google," you can invoke the Gemini overlay, allowing you to get started with AI-facilitated tasks.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 also supports Circle to Search, an Android feature Google announced earlier this year.

However, the minor increase is more noticeable on the outside screen. The 2,376 x 968-pixel AMOLED cover display is now 6.3 inches, up from 6.2 inches. Like its predecessor, the refresh rate can still climb to 120Hz.

There's also a brighter display that can reach 2,600 nits.

Gaming

According to Samsung, some mobile gamers gravitate toward the Galaxy Z Fold 6 due to its 7.6-inch, 120Hz display.

It's a phone that lets you enjoy ample screen estate while gaming. When you're done, you can fold it into a more compact form.

It's also worth noting that Samsung packed a larger vapor chamber inside the Z Fold 6. Plus, the graphics support ray tracing.

Cameras

There aren't any significant camera upgrades on the Galaxy Z Fold 6.

Similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 5, you're still getting the following specs:

  • 10MP selfie camera
  • 4MP under-display camera
  • 50MP wide camera
  • 12MP ultra-wide camera

Of course, with AI being the spotlight this year, you can take advantage of Photo Assist within the Gallery app, allowing you to take advantage of generative AI editing tools like Generative Edit.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 comes in three colors, Silver Shadow, Pink, and Navy, as well as two Samsung.com exclusive colors: Crafted Black and White.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 has a starting price of $1,899.99. It's available for preorder now.
