Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 6 continues to experience extensive leaks a couple of months ahead of its rumored launch in July. Among the major changes expected in the fully foldable smartphone are a new wider ratio and flatter build, which have been spotted in a fresh leak.

Over on X, prolific leaker Ice Universe shared an image of the purported third-party film protector for the cover display of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 which confirms those rumored vital changes in the external display and the Samsung device itself.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6's wider ratio

First, the protector depicts a wider cover display measuring 60.2 mm from side-to-side compared to the elongated panel in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (review) at 50.4 mm. Furthermore, it showed significantly thinner and uniform bezels around the flat display alongside less rounded corners.

It was also specified last month that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 carries an outer display with a 22:9 ratio as opposed to last year's Galaxy Z Fold 5 with a 23.1:9 ratio. With this new Galaxy Z Fold 6 shape, it will most likely make the handling slightly unwieldy but should provide a more conventional smartphone experience with more content shown.

The wider cover display indicates the device's main folding screen and overall form factor are evolving. This is supported in a separate render shared by the same source, revealing a near-square form with sharper corners.

Beyond the viewing real estate, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is tipped to introduce flatter edges and sides that are comparable to the Galaxy S24 Ultra (review). There was also a report of it utilizing a titanium chassis similar to the brick flagship counterpart and with an improved flex hinge. The redesigned exterior could also result in a lighter build for the premium foldable.

What about the inside? The Galaxy Z Fold 6's internals will be headlined by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. This is touted to be paired with an unchanged 4,400 mAh battery capacity and 25-watt charging rating.

There is consensus that hinted at Samsung hosting the next Unpacked event on July 10, which is earlier than the 2023 schedule. The South Koreans are expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 then. The Galaxy Buds 3 Pro and Galaxy Watch 7 will most likely to break cover as well.

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.
