Ugly No More: Galaxy Z Flip 6 Could Finally Remove the Crease

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 (review) arrived with some of the most notable changes in Samsung's clamshell foldable line, such as a bigger cover screen and sturdier hinge. However, one thing that has changed very little from the predecessors is the intrusive crease in the foldable screen. It appears the Galaxy Z Flip 6 could finally solve this conundrum.

How could Samsung improve crease in its foldable?

South Korean news outlet The Elec cited its supply chain sources where Samsung will use upgraded display technologies on the Galaxy Z Flip 6. In particular, the inner flexible AMOLED display is said to be covered by a thicker UTG (ultra-thin glass) panel which measures 50 micrometers, notably up from 30 micrometers in the current Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The most apparent change wth having thicker glass protection is the reduction of the crease in the inner display, which could apply in both actual groove size and appearance when viewed at an angle. In addition, the new panel should also offer better protection from debris and lint that could damage the bottom display.

The new report aligns with a previous finding from a few months back, which mentioned a new “IronFlex” display that will debuting in the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. Hence, both would likely refer to the same technology, with “IronFlex” proving to be a strategically better name.

The publication does not expect the hinge to be improved in the Galaxy Z Flip 6 this year. However, there was mention of an even brighter main screen that would place it further ahead of the Chinese clamshell phone alternatives.

Aside from the display, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is rumored to feature a bigger battery cell that would deliver a longer running time from its predecessor. With Samsung fitting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, battery life should also be stretched.

It's unclear if there are camera improvements this time arund or the addition of a telephoto snapper. What's likely to be in store are new generative AI features that would emphasize its foldable form factor usage.

 Do you eagerly anticipate the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6? Which changes would you wish to see in the device? Let's discuss your thoughts in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
