    Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldable phones may look similar to their predecessors at a glance, and that's because they are. It's been a few years since Samsung realized that drastic design changes every new generation don't add much value, so it should come as no surprise that the new foldable phones don't go overboard with aesthetic transformations.

    Instead, the new devices continue on the path of refining proven design concepts, bolstering durability, and embracing more sustainability efforts. Samsung did a lot to make the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 better than their predecessors in many ways.

    Not only do the new phones have tougher Armor Aluminum frames, better hinges, and less visible foldable screen creases, but they're bound to last longer thanks to an enhanced policy of seven years of OS upgrades and an improved IP48 rating.

    But hand-in-hand with these durability improvements walk other efforts that aren't necessarily as tangible or visible to the naked eye. Durability aside, Samsung also made efforts toward eco-friendliness and reusing materials.

    Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 embrace sustainability more

    Samsung has a long list of things it did in 2023 to improve its sustainability efforts and push the Device eXperience division closer to its goal of achieving zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030.

    One of the things Samsung did earlier this year was to introduce recycled rare earth elements to its smartphone manufacturing process for the first time. The Galaxy S24 series was the first to use these types of rare reused materials.

    Samsung has now extended its recycling efforts to include the latest Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6. They are the first foldable phones to use recycled rare earth elements, such as cobalt, for some of their components.

    Aside from these bits and pieces, the new phones also employ more recycled aluminum, glass, and plastics, for some of their components. To top it all off, both phones ship in a box made 100% from recycled paper material.

    If you want a new foldable phone that could last for years to come, you can grab a Galaxy Z Fold 6 or Galaxy Z Flip 6 through Samsung's pre-order program. Hit the button below for more details.
