The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra could be out of our reach

 

We've been hearing rumors about Samsung potentially working on a cheaper version of the Galaxy Z Fold 6. But it turns out that might not be all. Samsung could also be working on the other end of the spectrum for an even more expensive version of the phone. This is according to a report from Galaxy Club.

 

According to the publication, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra is real. The bad news is that it might be exclusive to South Korea. This is based on the model number they uncovered, where the handset is apparently known as "SM-F958N". The "8" in the model number is what is used to denote Samsung's "Ultra" devices, like the Galaxy S24 Ultra which has the model number "SM-S928".

 

The "N" in the name means that it is a South Korean model. It is possible that Samsung could have other model numbers that have yet to be uncovered, but for now, it looks like it could be a South Korea exclusive. In a way it's not necessarily a bad thing.

 

Samsung's foldables don't come cheap and we'd hate to think how much an "Ultra" variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could cost. Either way, it's still too early to tell, but Samsung is rumored to be hosting a Galaxy Unpacked event this July, so we should have more details then.


One UI 6.1 is about to make your Samsung Galaxy S23 a lot smarter

 

With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S24 phones, Samsung included a new exclusive set of AI tools in the form of Galaxy AI. If you happen to have an older flagship and don't want to upgrade, you won't have to. Samsung has confirmed that One UI 6.1 will roll out to its older phones on the 28th of March which will bring Galaxy AI to these devices.

 

At the moment, One UI 6.1 will be available for the Galaxy S23 phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 foldables, and the Galaxy Tab S9 series. The update will include Galaxy AI features like Circle to Search, Generative Edit that will give users an AI helping hand when it comes to photo editing, Live Translate, and also Chat Assist which you can use if you use the Samsung Keyboard app.

 

Unfortunately, there is no mention of older flagship phones from 2022. This includes the Galaxy S22. Chances are there might be hardware limitations that could prevent the use of AI on these devices. But it's not all bad news. Samsung's mobile chief recently suggested that the company is exploring the idea of a hybrid model that could potentially bring AI to older phones.

 

There's no guarantee yet, but there is some hope. Hopefully this hybrid model also means that we can see Galaxy AI make its way to entry and mid-range phones. In any case, if you own any of the devices mentioned above, watch out for the update on the 28th of March!


Samsung is finally bringing seamless updates to its smartphones

 

Google introduced seamless updates about 8 years ago with Android Nougat. Now it looks like Samsung has finally decided to come on board with seamless updates. Interestingly enough, they are starting with their newly-launched Galaxy A55 smartphone.

 

For those unfamiliar, seamless updates are a way to better manage the downloading and installing of Android updates. It creates a situation where an update is downloaded and installed in the background, while keeping the phone completely operational. This means that instead of sitting around waiting for an update to download and install, you can do other things.

 

The use of an A/B partition system also helps in the event an installation goes wrong. This is done by reverting to the previous build. We're not sure why Samsung took this long to implement seamless updates, but we're glad it's finally here.

 

Now, there is the question of whether or not existing Samsung devices will get it. The bad news is that chances are they won't. This is because this is a feature that needs to be configured ahead of time. So even if you own the latest Samsung flagship, you'll be missing out on this feature.

 

Presumably future Samsung handsets, like the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold and Flip series, will get it. So unless you plan to get the Galaxy A55, you'll just have to wait until your next Samsung phone.


The Samsung Galaxy Ring could be more useful than we thought!

 

From what we know about the Samsung Galaxy Ring so far, it sounds like a pared down version of the Galaxy Watch. It is basically a smartwatch without a screen where users can use it to track their health and fitness. This isn't a bad thing. Smartwatches aren't for everyone, so a smart ring could come in handy. But it turns out maybe the Galaxy Ring could be a useful tool for those looking to diet.

 

In a report from Korean publication Chosun Biz, it seems that the Galaxy Ring can help users with their diet. How this works is that Samsung wants to link the smart ring with Samsung Food and Samsung e-Food Center. For those unfamiliar, Samsung Food is an AI food and recipe service that creates more personalized and intelligent meal planning.

 

Based on the information gleaned by the ring on the wearer, such as their BMR and BMI, Samsung Food will be able to recommend a diet to users. Further pairing with Samsung's smart refrigerators, will allow Samsung Food to potentially analyze the contents of your fridge and come up with meal ideas on what's available.

 

If this is true, it is actually pretty awesome. We're not sure if this will be a Galaxy Ring exclusive or if Samsung can eventually introduce it to its smartwatches as well. Either way, take it with a grain of salt for now. The Galaxy Ring has been officially announced and is expected to potentially launch alongside Samsung's new foldables later this year.


The Samsung Galaxy A55 and A35 are Finally Official

 

After several weeks and months of rumors, leaks and whatnot, Samsung has finally taken the wraps off its newest pair of midrange smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy A55 and A35. While both devices share some similar specs, there are some minor differences once you take a closer look.

 

Take for example the design - at first glance, the Galaxy A55 and A35 look very identical, although the A55 uses a metal frame and Gorilla Glass Victus panels on both the front and rear, while the A35 is built with a plastic frame and back. Both phones do feature a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2340 resolution and 120Hz though.

The similarities also extend to the newly-designed frame around the power and volume buttons, which now features a raised section and does make for a unique design. Additionally, both phones ship with Android 14 alongside the latest One UI 6.1 platform version from Samsung, with a promised four generations of Android OS and One UI upgrades and five years of security updates.

 

This year, Samsung has decided to equip the Galaxy A55 and A35 with different chipsets - the A55 comes with the newer Exynos 1480 chipset, while the A35 comes with last year's 1380 chip, which was also used on other A-series handsets. The Galaxy A55 starts with a base storage configuration of 8GB + 128GB, while the A35 comes with a slightly lower 6GB + 12GB setup.
