Samsung Brings Galaxy AI to New Foldable Phones: Galaxy Z Fold6, Z Flip6

Samsung is bringing more AI power to its latest foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galazy Z Flip6, both of which were announced at its Galaxy Unpacked event today. The phones are complemented by the new Galaxy Buds3 and Galaxy Buds3 Pro.

Galaxy AI was already integrated into Samsung’s latest non-foldable phones in the Galaxy S24 series, but the feature offers new opportunities thanks to the foldable designs of these two latest devices. You can leverage Galaxy AI both when using the large screen of the Fold or the smaller FlexWindow in FlexMode.

The Galaxy Z Fold6 is the slimmest and lightest Galaxy Z series phone to date, boasting a symmetrical design with a straight edge. The new cover screen ratio provides a more natural bar-type viewing experience.  

Built with a dual rail hinge structure that is supported by a strengthened folding edge, it is made using enhanced Armor Aluminum and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, which also makes it the most durable Galaxy Z series phone.

The Galaxy Z Fold6 (as well as the Flip6) is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, providing improved CPU, GPU, and NPU performance. The processor is optimized for AI processing and offers enhanced graphics along with improved overall performance. The upgraded cooling system maximizes performance with a larger vapour chamber on Galaxy Z Fold6 and, for the first time, a vapor chamber on Galaxy Z Flip.

The Galaxy Z Fold6 offers a range of AI-powered features and tools that maximize the large screen and are designed to enhance productivity. Note Assist in Samsung Notes offers translation, summaries, and auto formatting for simple and easy meeting notes. A new transcript feature enables transcription, translation, and summarizing of voice recordings directly in Notes. Texts in PDF files can be translated and overlaid through the PDF overlay translation feature in Notes, and it supports both text and images.

A newly added Composer from Samsung Keyboard generates suggested text based on simple keywords for e-mail and supported social media apps. For social media in particular, the Composer creates text that reflects your tone by analyzing your writing style. Additionally, the S Pen experience is expanded with Galaxy AI. There’s a new feature called Sketch to image that allows you to create more sophisticated art pieces by generating image options when you simply sketch or draw on the photos in Gallery or Note screen. 

The Galaxy Z Fold6 affords access to the Google Gemini app, which is fully integrated on the new Galaxy Z series, providing your own personal AI-powered assistant. Swipe the corner of the screen or say “Hey Google,” and you can bring up Gemini’s overlay and get help with writing, learning, or planning. Gemini is integrated with various Google apps, so you can do everything from organize a travel itinerary by getting real-time flight and hotel booking information to exploring famous landmarks and the best routes to get there using Google Maps. When you want detailed information about a music video while watching YouTube on Galaxy Z Fold6’s large screen, you can access Gemini in the multi-window split screen to ask questions. If you’re curious about who the artist is in the video, long press the home button and circle, highlight, or tap on screen and Circle to Search will offer instant search results.

Galaxy AI has also enhanced communication on Galaxy Z Fold6. Maximizing its dual screen form factor, Interpreter comes with a new conversation mode that enables both parties to view translations on the main and cover screens for more natural interactions. It also offers one-way translation, so you can easily understand when listening during lectures or any other type of presentation. Live Translate, which translates phone calls directly on your device in real-time, is also being extended beyond Samsung’s own native calling app to a selection of popular third-party apps. 

Using the AI-powered ProVisual Engine on the Galaxy Z Fold6, you can enjoy the advanced editing experience with Photo Assist on the large screen that helps to create premium content. Portrait Studio creates a variety of different portrait styles such as 3D cartoon or watercolour. Instant Slow-mo allows you to instantly slow a video by generating additional frames while maintaining a smooth viewing experience.

Galaxy Z Fold6 also offers an upgraded gaming experience, anchored by its powerful chipset and 1.6x larger vapour chamber for the ability to game for longer, while still maintaining performance. Vivid, life-like graphics are supported by Ray Tracing and are brought to life on a 7.6-inch screen that offers a brighter display of up to 2,600 nits to deliver more immersive gaming experiences.

The Galaxy Z Fold6 will be available for pre-order starting July 10, with general availability starting July 24. Pricing in Canada starts at $2,565 and the phone comes in Silver Shadow, Pink, and Navy.

The Galaxy Z Flip6 has a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED FlexWindow that has been enhanced, enabling AI-assisted functions without needing to open the device. You can reply to texts with Suggested replies, which analyzes your latest messages to suggest a tailored response. With Galaxy AI, get the most out of the FlexWindow, which provides access to Samsung Healthupdates and notifications and also allows you to select the next track you want to listen to on your music widget. FlexWindow offers more Widgets and allows you to check information from multiple Widgets simultaneously.

With the AI-powered Photo Ambient, a wallpaper can change in real-time based on the time and weather. You can also easily create a unified look and feel with suggested screen layout options by analyzing your wallpaper, such as moving the clock and changing the frame colour to ensure the background image stands.

With the new Auto Zoom, FlexCam automatically finds the best framing for your shot by detecting the subject and zooming in and out before making any necessary adjustments.  

New 50MP Wide and 12MP Ultra-wide sensors provide an upgraded camera experience. The new 50MP sensor supports 2x optical zoom for clear photos, while offering AI zoom for an advanced shooting experience with up to 10x zoom. Nightography, enhanced with video HDR, allows you to capture improved videos, even in dim lighting. The night capturing feature is now available in-app on Instagram, so you can take photos at night and message or share them directly from within the app.

Also available for pre-order today with official availability starting July 24, the Galaxy Z Flip6 comes in Silver Shadow, Yellow, Blue, and Mint color (order direct through to choose from additional exclusive colours like Crafted Black, White, and Peach). It’s starting price in Canada is $1,463.

Galaxy Buds3 and Buds3 Pro

Samsung Galaxy Buds3

Complementing the phones is the Galaxy Buds3 series, which works seamlessly with features like Interpreter in Listening mode on Galaxy Z Fold6 or Flip6. This will allow you to hear a lecture translated directly through your Galaxy Buds. Say two words through Voice Command and it allows you to control functions like playing or stopping music without manually touching the earbuds or a connected smartphone.

Sound can also be intelligently optimized. The microphones in the Buds3 series analyze both internal and external sound in real time to enhance sound and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) quality through Adaptive EQ and Adaptive ANC. If you are listening to music, your Galaxy Buds3 Pro will collect and identify surrounding sound and automatically adjust the  level of noise and sound without manual adjustment through Adaptive Noise Control, Siren Detect, and Voice Detect.

The Galaxy Buds3 series comes with a new computational design boasting a comfortable fit. The premium blade design also targets style-centric consumers with a sleek and modern style complemented with Blade Lights. This new design enables a more intuitive physical experience, says Samsung, by allowing you to control the device by pinching or swiping up or down on the blade.

Galaxy Buds3 and Buds3 Pro offer two design options: Galaxy Buds3 is an open type, while Galaxy Buds3 Pro is canal type for those looking for immersive sound.

The Buds3 Pro also provide a premium audio experience through enhanced two-way speakers with a planar tweeter, and Dual Amplifiers. With Ultra High Quality audio, you can listen to a high-resolution audio source. The Super-Wideband Call feature on Galaxy Buds3 series can recognize your voice to improve the call experience in various sound environments.

Available for pre-order now and on sale starting July 24, the Galaxy Buds3 are $210 and the Galaxy Buds3 Pro $330 in Canada.
