The live translation function of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 is part of Galaxy AI. However, Samsung skips Wi-Fi 7.

Samsung today confirmed, not surprisingly, that the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 will feature its own Galaxy AI. Won-Joon Choi, Executive Vice President and Head of Mobile R&D Office and Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung, wrote a blog post on the topic today, confirming that the company plans to “further optimize the Galaxy AI experience for the upcoming foldable devices”.

He said: “Our foldables are the most versatile and flexible form factor in Samsung Galaxy and when combined with Galaxy AI, these two complementary technologies will together unlock all new possibilities”. Samsung wants to revolutionize mobile experiences “with a hybrid AI approach.” In their opinion, this is “the most practical and reliable solution” to meet consumer needs and “put Samsung ahead of the curve”.

Hybrid primarily means the contrast between privacy and on-device AI features and the versatility of cloud-based AI. Through open collaboration with industry-leading partners, Samsung wants to offer a variety of features. This includes Samsung’s Live Translate AI feature. Samsung plans to extend this to third-party messaging apps to support voice calls. Live Translate will also be integrated into Samsung’s on-device AI language translation model.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6 without Wi-Fi 7

The upcoming flagships will have to do without another feature. According to a new FCC certification, neither the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 nor the Galaxy Z Flip6 will have Wi-Fi 7 support. Instead, only Wi-Fi 6 ax including the 6 GHz band is on board. 5G and apparently UWB are also installed.

The FCC had previously certified the battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6. There are two cells – a main battery with a nominal capacity of 2,790 mAh and a secondary battery with a capacity of 1,097 mAh. This gives a nominal capacity of 3,887 mAh, which is more than the 3,591 mAh of the Galaxy Z Flip5. Samsung specifies the latter as having a typical capacity of 3,700 mAh.

Both Samsung smartphones were tested with wired 25 watt and wireless 15 watt chargers. The charging rates remain the biggest point of criticism, even for the Korean company’s top products. Samsung has not yet announced an official date for the Galaxy Unpacked event. Rumor has it that it will take place on July 10.
