Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 to get dual-screen translation mode: leak

Samsung has been putting a lot of emphasis on translation in its Galaxy AI suite, and it appears the company is working on a new translation option to take advantage of both displays on its upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6. And if that sounds familiar, that’s because Google did it first on the Pixel Fold.

Last year, Google introduced a new Translate feature on the Pixel Fold called “Interpreter Mode,” which let users translate text and speech on the main display, and display the translation on the outer display. Essentially, users could have a proper two-way conversation without ever turning their phone over. It’s a clever idea, and one that Samsung seems to like.

In leaked marketing materials published by Evan Blass (@evleaks) in an email newsletter, we can see an update to Samsung’s “interpreter” mode that first debuted on the Galaxy S24 series. The update sees two-way conversations appear on both the inner and outer screens of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6, with translations displayed to the other user.

Samsung explains:

Are you traveling and want to talk to locals? Whether you want to express yourself, listen to an international conference in a foreign language or understand your guide, the interpreter translates in real time.

Samsung’s materials and footnotes make it clear that this feature only works in Flex mode (unlike the Pixel, which simply requires the device to be unfolded), and it also specifically states that it only works in “conversation mode.”

Interpreter Mode on the Pixel Fold

Samsung will officially launch the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 on July 10. The devices will feature the same Galaxy AI features as the Galaxy S24 series.

Reservations for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 are Open now on, with a $50 pre-order credit and potential savings of up to $1,500. Pre-orders are completely free and do not obligate you to actually purchase the device. By signing up, you’ll also be entered into a drawing for a $5,000 Samsung credit.
