Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 BIS, Camera FV-5 listings

  • The BIS certification reveals the upcoming Samsung foldable will have the model number SM-F741B.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6 BIS
  • BIS certification is mandatory for any electronic product to launch in India, so the phone appearing on it does add some weight.
  • Considering Samsung launched its previous generation foldables right from the Galaxy Z Fold in India, the new Galaxy Z Flip 6 is anyway expected to debut in the country but the BIS listing suggests an impending announcement, mostly in July or August.
  • Back in February, the battery cells of the Z Flip 6 were spotted on the BIS platform and this revealed EB-BF741ABE and EB-BF741ABY model numbers.

Separately, 91mobiles also spotted the Galaxy Z Flip 6 on the Camera FV-5 platform. This reveals the foldable has a 12.5MP primary camera on the back but should be marketed as 50MP with pixel-binning. There will be f/1.8 aperture, EIS+OIS, and 5.4mm focal length. There will be other lenses as well but the details of those are under wraps. In comparison, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 features a 12MP primary camera with the same f/1.8 and OIS.

This looks to be the first certification the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 has appeared on but we’re hoping to come across more such listings in the days to come.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6: what we know so far

Recent leaks have suggested the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will have a bigger cover display, improved hinge mechanism and more. The handset is tipped to get a 6.7-inch inner screen and a 3.9-inch outer display. For comparison, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 came with a 3.4-inch outer panel. The foldable is expected to come in six colours: Light Blue, Mint (Light Green), Silver Shadow, Yellow, Crafted Black, Peach and White. 

The foldable is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC paired with Adreno GPU for graphics. For reference, the predecessor came with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The chipset could be paired with 256GB and 512GB storage options. The phone could have a 4,000mAh battery, which is a slight improvement over the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s 3,700mAh battery.
