The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6 have undergone testing for FCC certification and that offers a peek at what’s coming. The phones were tested for compliance with 5G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and wireless power regulations, the Fold also has UWB, apparently.

However, neither phone was tested for Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, only Wi-Fi 6 (ax, including the 6GHz band). The 2023 models arrived relatively early for Wi-Fi 7 support, so the omission was understandable, not so much for the 2024 models.

Here’s something interesting, the lab tested the Galaxy Z Fold6 in closed, half opened and fully opened configurations. This changes the positioning of the MIMO antennas, so it is a necessary check.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6 has two batteries – a main cell with 2,790mAh rated capacity and a secondary one with 1,097mAh capacity. This adds up to 3,887mAh rated capacity. This is more than the 3,591mAh of the Z Flip5 (which has a 3,700mAh typical capacity).

Both phones were tested with 25W wired and 15W wireless chargers. What, you didn’t think that Samsung would increase the charge rates, did you? Anyway, Samsung hasn’t picked a date for the Galaxy Unpacked event yet, but that should happen fairly soon.
