Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 6 to launch with 12GB RAM globally


A fresh Geekbench run for Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 6 confirms the rumored RAM boost. The global version of the upcoming foldable (model number SM-F741B) showed up on the benchmarking platform with 12GB of RAM. We previously saw the US version (SM-F741U) with the same amount of RAM.

The 12GB RAM variant of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be available globally

Samsung has limited its Flip series clamshell foldables to 8GB of RAM since the first-gen model in 2020. That’s rumored to change this year with the Galaxy Z Flip 6. The upcoming model has always been rumored to come in a 12GB RAM variant. We now have another piece of evidence supporting this rumor.

The latest benchmark entry for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 confirms that the 12GB RAM variant will be available globally. Well, Samsung may not sell the higher RAM unit in every country, but the company certainly won’t keep it limited to select markets. After all, both the US and global versions are getting a RAM boost.

The standard model will feature 8GB of RAM. Storage options will include 256GB and 512GB. We may get the following three configurations:8GB+256GB, 8GB+512GB, and 12GB+512GB. Or maybe Samsung will also throw a 12GB+256GB option into the mix. We shall find out soon—the Galaxy Z Flip 6 launches in the first half of July.

There is no other major takeaway in this Geekbench listing. We already know that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will ship with Android 14-based One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (For Galaxy) processor. This chipset also powered the Galaxy S24 Ultra globally. Samsung should debut new AI features with the upcoming foldables—the lineup also includes the Galaxy Z Fold 6.

As far as the benchmark scores are concerned, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 achieved a single-core score of 2,321 and a multi-core score of 7,233. These scores are up to 5.5% higher than what the device achieved a month ago. This shows Samsung is at work optimizing the new clamshell foldable’s software experience. This is still a pre-production software version, so there is room for further improvement.

The launch date is all but officially confirmed for July 10

Samsung has yet to officially confirm the launch date for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, there are strong indications that the event will take place in Paris, France on July 10. The next Galaxy Unpacked will also bring the Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Watch Ultra, Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Buds 3 Pro, and more. We will let you know as soon as Samsung makes things official.
