Leaked Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 specs point to big camera, battery, and power upgrades

Just a few days ago we saw a detailed Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 specs leak, and now the same source is back with a near-complete specs list for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 – and this time the leaked specs look quite promising.

The leak comes courtesy of SmartPrix, and unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, which has hardly any listed changes compared to the Z Fold 5, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is said to be getting some big upgrades to its chipset, main camera, and battery capacity over its predecessor.

The chipset is apparently a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which is a generational leap on from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5. This chipset is also found in the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, and it’s what we’d expect this phone to have.

The Z Flip 6 is also listed as having a 50MP main camera, up from just 12MP on the Galaxy Z Flip 5, and that’s a spec we’ve heard leaked before, so there’s a good chance it’s accurate.

Finally in terms of substantial upgrades, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 apparently has a 4,000mAh battery, up from 3,700mAh in the Galaxy Z Flip 5. This too has been leaked previously.

So all that together should make this quite a substantial upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, which is a good thing too, since previous leaks suggested the Galaxy Z Flip 6 might cost more.

Not a complete upgrade

However, while these three key specs could be upgraded, the rest of the phone sounds much like its predecessor. According to SmartPrix the Galaxy Z Flip 6 has a 6.7-inch 1080 x 2640 foldable screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 3.4-inch 720 x 748 cover screen.

It’s also listed as coming in 256GB and 512GB configurations, having a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 10MP front-facing camera, 25W charging, and having dimensions of 85.1 x 71.9 x 14.9mm when folded, 165.1 x 71.9 x 6.9mm when unfolded, and weighing 187g.

That’s all more or less identical to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, albeit the Z Flip 6 would be 0.2mm thinner when folded.

The only other listed differences are the colors, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 colors apparently including Mint, Silver Shadow, Yellow, and Blue, which are shades we’ve heard leaked before.

So if this leak is accurate then the Galaxy Z Flip 6 could be a reasonable improvement on its predecessor, but far from a complete overhaul. Still, it certainly sounds more promising than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, which according to the same source could be more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, and slightly slimmer and lighter, but otherwise basically identical.

We’d take all of this with a pinch of salt anyway, but we should know for sure soon, as leaks suggest that both the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be announced on July 10.
