Earlier, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 debuted as Samsung’s third-generation foldable screen smartphones. At the same time, other OEMs are also working to enter the foldable phone market and Google is one of them.

A few days ago, the US tech giant announced that its upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices will launch with a custom-developed chip called Tensor. Meanwhile, a recent report revealed that the Android 12 source code revealed that Google’s first foldable – Pixel Fold is coming soon with the same Tensor chip.

According to the info via AndroidCentral, the source code found in the Android 12 beta, a device code-named “Passport” was disclosed. This code name may be the rumored Pixel Fold folding screen phone, and Google may be preparing to unveil it before the end of the year.

Apart from this, in the cstark27’s tweet, four devices using unannounced Samsung Exynos modems were mentioned. The model of this modem is “g5123b”, which will be consistent with Samsung’s current processor “5123A”.

It is reported that two devices mentioned in the source code of the Android 12 beta are “Oriole” and “Raven”, which represent the code names of Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Meanwhile, “Passport” has appeared in previous leaks, as well as the previous Android 12 beta and developer preview.

If it’s true, we can easily speculate that Google’s Tensor chip won’t be exclusive for the upcoming Pixel 6 series, but may also be used for Pixel Fold folding screens. It is rumored that Samsung is the manufacturer of the Tensor chip, so it is reasonable to use this modem, so this is mentioned in the source code.

Google claimed that the Tensor chip will put the Pixel 6 into the ranks of the best Android phones and at the same time make it one of the safest smartphones in the world. It gives Google complete control over the way the hardware and software communicate, which may lead to better image processing and so on.

Galaxy S24 FE: Samsung’s budget flagship under development

Samsung Galaxy S24

Samsung is reportedly working on the development of the Galaxy S24 FE. Earlier this year, the company released the Galaxy S24 flagships, which are selling well globally. Now, the company has started work on its next budget flagship, with a release expected later this year.

GalaxyClub reports that Samsung is developing the Galaxy S24 FE with the R12 codename. The codename aligns with Samsung’s previous releases as the S20 FE was codenamed R8, the S21 FE was R9, the S23 FE was R11, and the R11 (S22 FE) was in development but hasn’t been released.

It was reported that Samsung might launch the S24 FE in the summer. As the development starts late, the release may be pushed to later this year, as testing and production aren’t finalized yet. The latest report also has no other details than the device’s codename.

Galaxy S23 FE has the hardware specs of the S22 series, however, the S24 FE might bring the latest. If it happens, we might see a price hike in the next budget flagship. New Galaxy AI features are also expected to debut with the S24 FE, before the S25 series launch next year.

Samsung is also working on an affordable Galaxy Z Fold 6, which would be the first Fan Edition foldable. Judging from the 2023 release strategy, it’s expected that the Galaxy S24 FE might launch alongside the Galaxy Z Fold FE, new FE tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 US model packs Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

The US variant of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. There were reports that Samsung may expand the Exynos chipset to its foldable lineup, which doesn’t seem to be happening, at least in the United States.

Recently, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 US variant was spotted on Geekbench with Snapdragon chip. It isn’t surprising as the company is following its conventional chipset strategy. We expect that it will be the same chipset used in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy.

The Flip 6 smartphone scored 15084 points on Geekbench’s GPU test. Due to its foldable form factor, the device may miss a Galaxy S24-like larger cooling technology. Still, its impressive 15000+ points in the GPU test indicates that Samsung has greatly optimized the software.

The company still has three months remaining in the launch event. More performance improvements will likely be achieved before the Unpacked. The South Korean tech giant will likely unveil the next-gen foldable phones in mid-July.

This year, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra would join the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6 and the Galaxy Z Flip 6. In addition, an affordable variant of Fan Edition branding is also in development. However, the cheaper foldable would miss some pro-grade specs to maintain the price.
