We’re only one week away from Samsung’s next Unpacked event on July 10th, where we’re expecting the company’s Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 folding phones — but leaker Evan Blass has just revealed the entire spec sheets and marketing materials with practically everything you’d want to know.

For example, did you know both phones will be lighter, with longer battery life, despite being slightly thinner, and both have slight changes to their screens? Or that the Flip will now let you use Samsung’s language-translating Interpreter Mode on its front cover screen as well, letting you point the text of one language at the person you’re talking to while the other faces you?

Or that the Z Flip 6 will be the first with vapor chamber cooling?

Both also claim IP48 ingress protection, though that’s not necessarily an improvement: the “4” in IP48 is not actually the dust resistance we’ve been waiting for to head off potential long-term hinge damage, but rather protection against solid objects 1mm in size or greater, and it’s possible Samsung simply didn’t bother to claim that rating for previous foldables.

You can find every leaked spec in the galleries below, but here are the highlights we’ve gleaned by checking these specs against last year’s Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, assuming these details pan out:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 (7.6-inch inner screen, 6.3-inch outer screen)

  • The screen has significantly higher max brightness at 2,600 nits, up from 1,750
  • New Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor
  • Claims one hour longer LTE internet battery life, two hours longer video playback
  • 14 grams lighter
  • 1.4mm shorter, 1mm wider, 1.3mm thinner when folded
  • 1.4mm shorter, 2.7mm wider, 0.5mm thinner when unfolded
  • “improved Armor Aluminum frame”
  • Secondary screen is 0.1-inches larger
  • Slightly different main display res at 2160×1856 vs. 2176×1812
  • No change in cameras, battery capacity (4400mAh), or cover glass (Gorilla Glass Victus 2)

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 (6.7-inch inner screen, 3.4-inch outer screen)

  • 50MP main camera, up from 12MP, same f/1.8 aperture
  • New Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor and 12GB RAM (up from 8GB)
  • Secondary display is now IPS instead of OLED
  • 0.2mm thinner when folded, other dimensions and weight are the same
  • Higher capacity 4,000mAh battery (up from 3,700mAh)
  • Claims two hours longer LTE internet battery life, three hours longer video playback
  • No change in cover glass (Gorilla Glass Victus 2)
  • Entire phone now reflects your choice of color, instead of just one panel on the back

We’ve already seen leaked colors for the phones from Blass, including an excellent ice blue Flip. Now, we just need prices, I suppose.
