Galaxy Z Fold 6 leak shows a significant change to the external display

It would not be wrong to say that Samsung is the initiator of the foldable phone segment with the Z Fold series. While the official announcement for Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to be made in the summer months, a new leak It allows you to get more insight into the phone. However, it should be noted that this idea is not one that will please the general public.

The signature design element of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series is its narrow and long outer screen, which is also its most discussed aspect. Although functional, the Z Fold 5's 23:9 aspect ratio outer display makes everyday smartphone tasks cumbersome and awkward. Typing, surfing the web, and even watching videos becomes a somewhat restricted experience.

Famous sensationalist Ice Universe shared images and videos of screen protectors allegedly prepared for Z Fold 6. These protectors signal a marginally wider outer display, going from roughly 57mm wide on the Fold 5 to around 60mm on the Fold 6.

In addition to the increased width, the corners of the leaked screen protectors also look quite sharp, imitating the design language of the Galaxy S24 series. This marks a departure from the softer, rounded corners of the Z Fold 5.

Although welcome, this change is unlikely to be transformative. Although a slight improvement to the 22:9 aspect ratio will bring the Fold 6 closer to usability norms, it will not be enough for the Z Fold 6 to catch up with its competitors. For example, the OnePlus Open's external display already has a 20:9 aspect ratio. This disparity highlights Samsung's seemingly slow approach to overhauling the core usability of the Z Fold series.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 may not make a big leap in terms of camera either

A less-than-optimal external display experience isn't the only concern for Samsung fans. The Z Fold 5's camera system, while capable, falls short of expectations for a premium foldable device. According to current rumors, this trend may continue with the Z Fold 6.

Next July is marked for the launch of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6. The official announcement of the company is expected to be made in Paris, the capital of France.
