Full Story

Oh, the drama around the Galaxy Z Flip 6! Just when we all thought the rumors couldn’t get any more yawn-inducing, bam! A wild, bizarre benchmark listing appears. It threw us for a loop, contradicting last week’s test on two big points. It hinted at a Z Flip 6 rocking an old Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 but with a hefty 12GB RAM. Cue the wild theories and speculation.

But, plot twist, it was all a big fat nothingburger. No such Galaxy Z Flip 6 model exists, folks. SamMobile did some digging and, without getting lost in the techy weeds, they’re pretty sure what looked like a Z Flip 6 was actually a Galaxy S23 Ultra in disguise. Someone got creative with the model number, trying to stir the pot. Why? Who knows. At the end of the day, it’s just one of those things.

The real kicker? This whole saga doesn’t even involve an actual Galaxy Z Flip 6 unit. But hey, we’re not giving up hope. We’re crossing our fingers for a beefier Z Flip 6, dreaming of a leap from 8GB to 12GB RAM. No solid rumors to back that up… yet. But with Samsung‘s big reveal still on the horizon, who knows?

Not everything’s up in the air, though. Some specs seem set in stone: a 6.7-inch foldable screen, a 3.4-inch cover display, a decent battery, and a shiny new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. But those dual 12MP cameras from the Z Flip 5 making a comeback? Please, no. And let’s not get started on the chipset roulette for different regions.

Now, about that Galaxy Z Flip FE version. Is it happening? Hard to say. There’s been some buzz, but nothing concrete. If it does pop up, don’t expect it to boast 12GB RAM. That’s for sure.

As for what Samsung’s actually planning to unveil? It’s looking like just the standard Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 for now. Any hopes for a Fan Edition will likely have to wait. Maybe it’ll show up later, tagging along with the Z Fold 6 Ultra.
