Flat and Boxy Frame

The sensation of holding the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is more comfortable as the phone’s frame is completely flat and its corners are more squared. The frame and back of the Samsung Z Flip 6 feature a matte finish, giving the phone a more premium look.

In terms of design, Samsung has revamped the design of the rear camera on this foldable phone. Now, both rear cameras of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 within the cover screen (secondary screen) are coated with a color that matches the back of the phone. This makes the camera lenses of the Samsung Z Flip 6 stand out more. From a distance, the cover screen of this phone appears to have two eyes. In previous generations, Samsung only provided a silver or black trim on the rear camera lenses.

Less Noticeable Crease

One of the things that caught our attention was the screen crease of the Galaxy Z Flip 6, which is now significantly minimized. We could hardly see the crease of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 when viewing its screen for the first time. Only when we touched the middle of the screen did we feel a slight crease.

This less noticeable crease adds value to the phone, as it sometimes disrupts the aesthetic of the display.
