Samsung has announced its 2024 foldable lineup, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6, iterative updates to last year's Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. In the past, Samsung has had a relative monopoly on the foldables market, but that's starting to change. Honor's mighty Magic V2 is exquisitely thin for a foldable, the OnePlus Open seriously impressed us with its cameras, and Motorola's new Razr 50 Ultra is upping the stakes for flip phones. So has Samsung done enough with its Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6?

Samsung seems most excited about the AI features its two new foldables are launching with. Its Galaxy AI has been rolled out across 3.2 million devices in the UK since January 2024, and Samsung clearly wants to be the poster child for artificial intelligence on smartphones.
