With its latest foldables, Samsung proves that it can’t innovate anymore

Samsung is the largest Android manufacturer globally, and it is in a dominant position in the U.S., where it outsells its nearest rival by a sizeable margin. With the brand effectively unchallenged in the region, there really isn’t any need to innovate or come up with differentiated products, so Samsung has been churning out the same phone year over year for the better part of three years.

In Hardwired, AC Senior Editor Harish Jonnalagadda delves into all things hardware, including phones, audio products, storage servers, and routers.

This is the case with its latest foldables; the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 don’t have any meaningful hardware upgrades outside of IP48 ingress protection, and they’re identical to their predecessors — which were similarly identical to their predecessors, and so on. And because Samsung is inherently aware of the fact that it has no rivals, both devices get a $100 price hike.
