  • Images of alleged screen protectors for the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s outer display have surfaced online.
  • The images suggest the Z Fold 6 features a slightly wider outer display compared to the Z Fold 5.

Samsung’s Z Fold series single-handedly launched the foldable smartphone segment. While the Galaxy Z Fold 6 isn’t expected for a few more months, recent leaks offer a glimpse into what the upcoming foldable might look like — and it’s not a good look.

A signature design element of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series has also been its most controversial — the narrow and tall outer display. While functional, the Z Fold 5’s ~23:9 aspect ratio outer display makes everyday smartphone tasks cumbersome and awkward. Typing, web browsing, and even watching videos feel frustratingly constrained.
