Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 launched: IP48, SD8G3 for Galaxy, starts at PHP 105,990

Next Generation Fold

The next-generation Fold features a sleeker and boxier design which reduced its size and weight. The loss in weight is dramatic enough that the new Fold6 is as heavy as the Galaxy S24 Ultra at 239 grams (from 254 grams). Like the Galaxy Z Flip6, the metal frame now has a brushed aluminum finish.

To achieve the sleeker and boxier design, Samsung has used a new Dual Rail Hinge that distributes the physical impact better which the brand claims makes it 2x more resistant to pokes and pressure. 

It is made of a 10 percent stronger variant of Armor Aluminum.

Both the cover screen and the rear glass panel are Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protected.

Inside the phone is the 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy octa-core processor, 12GB RAM, 256GB/512GB/1TB internal storage, and a 4,400mAh battery with 25W Adaptive fast charging via USB-C. It supports Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wireless PowerShare.
