According to SAMOBILE, Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 may be released on July 10, 2024. Previously, it was only a conjecture that the Galaxy Z Fold would be equipped with the third-generation Snapdragon 8. However, subsequent test data confirmed that the third-generation Snapdragon 8 will be equipped with the Galaxy Z Fold6, and the vertically folding Galaxy Z Flip6 of the same series is likely to be the same. The same chipset will be used.
