Samsung unveils new foldables packed with AI-powered tools

The tech giant has brought the Galaxy AI suite of tools to its foldable phones for the first time, and also introduced its first smart ring.


The Korean tech giant announced the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Flip6 will go on sale later this month. They will come with what Samsung calls Galaxy AI, its range of generative artificial intelligence tools which were launched in January to help users edit photos, take notes and transcriptions, summarise documents, write emails and even translate languages in real time. Speaking at the launch event in Paris, Samsung’s mobile division president TM Roh said AI was “supercharging our latest foldables”.

Generative AI has become a key innovation area in the tech sector, with the biggest firms launching AI-powered features and virtual assistants to help users with creative and productivity tasks. The firm says some of the tools have been enhanced for its foldable devices, in particular the communication tools, such as the Interpreter feature. It comes with a new conversation mode which uses both the main and cover screens on the Galaxy Z Fold6 so both parties in a conversation can see translations on a screen.

James Kitto, Samsung UK and Ireland’s head of mobile, said: “Samsung is driven by a relentless focus on innovation. It’s embedded in our DNA, and this launch is a testament to that, bringing to our customers the next generation of foldables – our slimmest, lightest and most durable yet. “This is the next frontier of Galaxy AI, supercharging this unique form factor with enhancements across features such as Circle to Search with Google – optimised for the ultimate use.
