Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldable phones in 2024, as successors to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, which were introduced in July this year. The company has not yet officially announced these models. However, judging by previous launch cycles, the next generation of foldable smartphones could be unveiled a few months after the launch of the purported Galaxy S24 lineup. The anticipated Galaxy S24 flagship models are tipped to be introduced on January 17, 2024 in San Jose, US. Meanwhile, a recent tip suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 will feature larger displays than their preceding models.
DSCC CEO Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) shared in a post on X that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will feature bigger displays than what their preceding models came with. Young added that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will sport a 3.9-inch cover panel.
