Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra leaks before its official launch

Although the most recent Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the company’s best offering to yet, there are still a few significant drawbacks, one of which is the exorbitant cost than Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra!

Can we anticipate more significant modifications on the forthcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 considering that its enhancements over the Galaxy Z Fold 4 were minimal? According to rumors, that will be the case, and a second model may be released.

Everything we know about the Galaxy Z Fold 6 ultra is shown below.

When will the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 be launched?

SamMobile, a Samsung-focused website, stated in February that the company’s next Galaxy Unpacked event will take place in “early July 2024”. With Samsung releases often taking place on the second Wednesday of each month, the publication identified July 10 as a possible date.

However, in a following article, SamMobile claims that the 10 July 2024 launch date is now “confirmed”. According to GSMArena, a tweet from leaker Evan Blass (which has since been removed owing to a copyright strike) purportedly displayed a countdown timer that appeared to have been obtained directly from Samsung:

Samsung hasn’t verified anything at this point. However, presuming an Unpacked event on July 10th, that would be earlier in the year than Samsung has ever announced a foldable.

  • Galaxy Z Fold: September 2019
  • Galaxy Z Fold 2: September 2020
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3: August 2021
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4: August 2022
  • Galaxy Z Fold 5: July 2023

Furthermore, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will most certainly be accompanied by the Galaxy Z Flip 6, as well as another Z Fold 6 variation.

First, the Dutch tech blog GalaxyClub, which has a strong track record for Samsung rumors, revealed that a brand-new Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra is in the works. WinFuture also reported that Samsung will release an Ultra model. According to rumors, the ‘Q6A’ device described in a prior post will be a higher-end version of the Z Fold 6.

However, Evan Blass denied these reports last month, stating that only ‘Q6’ (Galaxy Z Fold 6) and ‘B6’ (Galaxy Z Flip 6) were under development.


On the other hand, a fresh claim from Android Headlines has reignited speculation that Samsung may produce two successors to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 just appeared on Geekbench with the model number ‘SM-F956’, and another model, ‘SM-F958N’, was also discovered, indicating that it may be headed for the South Korean market.

Additionally, a new IMEI listing for ‘SM-W9025’ associated with ‘Q6A’ has arisen. Typically, the ‘W’ series models, like as the W24 and W24 Flip, are Chinese variations of the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip series that have distinct designs. This hints that ‘SM-W9025’ could be a China-only model, possibly called W25 Ultra. Thus, the speculated ‘Q6A’ smartphone may only be available in China and South Korea.

How much will the Galaxy Z Fold 6 cost?

Pricing is generally one of the final details given about a new product. So it’s no surprise that there aren’t any leaks or rumors about it yet. However, the starting pricing of prior generations provide a useful guide:

  • Z Fold 5 – £1,748/$1,799
  • Z Fold 4 – £1,649/$1,799
  • Z Fold 3 – £1,599/$1,799

As you can see, pricing has stayed stable in the United States, while there has been significant fluctuation in the United Kingdom. It would be surprising to see it get even more expensive, although this is possible if considerable upgrades are offered. If it comes to fruition, the rumored Ultra model will most certainly be substantially more expensive.

According to SmartPrix, Samsung may raise the price of its Galaxy Z Fold series, with the Galaxy Z Fold 6 starting at $1,899.99 for the base 256GB model in the United States. This represents a $100 increase over the previous model, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, which was priced at $1,799.

Other storage options will see price increases, including the 512GB model at $2,019.99 and the 1TB model at $2,259.99. This is a significant shift, given Samsung’s competitors have been cutting foldable phone prices.

What specs & features will the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra have?

While a brand-new Z Fold 6 Ultra model is expected in South Korea and potentially China, most rumors center on the conventional model.

Design

A recently leaked official image of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 (via GSMArena) from Samsung’s Kazakhstan website shows only minor cosmetic differences from its predecessor. The most noticeable change is the reduction in corner rounding compared to the Z Fold 5, which is consistent with recent disclosures by Ice Universe.

The bezels appear to have shrunk down, resulting in a 22:9 aspect ratio on the cover display, a minor improvement over the 2023 model’s 23.1:9 ratio, without drastically altering the phone’s size.

The rear camera system stays substantially intact, with a raised island containing three lenses rimmed in black rather than metallic rings.

According to OnLeaks renders (via SmartPrix), the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6 resembles both the Z Fold 5 and Z Fold 4, with somewhat sharper frame corners and fully flat sides.

The report also states that when unfurled, it will measure 153.5 x 132.5 x 6.1 mm, which is 1.4 mm shorter and 2.6 mm wider than its predecessor. Despite this, there is still no place for a S Pen, and the unchanged thickness indicates a comparable internal design, including the hinge.

This is consistent with an earlier leak by Chun VN, who stated that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 would have a broader but thinner and lighter profile, as well as sharp edges similar to the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Display

SmartPrix reports that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will have a 7.6-inch foldable panel. The cover panel is said to be 6.2 inches with a 120 Hz refresh rate and up to 2600 nits of brightness.

Furthermore, analyst Ross Young predicted that the foldable and cover displays on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 would be larger than those on the Galaxy Z Fold 5, however particular measurements and further information were not publicly published.

According to leaker Yogesh Brar, the cover display of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could measure 6.4 inches diagonally, up from 6.2 inches on the Galaxy Z Fold 5:

Before the Galaxy Z Fold 5 was released, leaker Revegnus stated that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s cover display would have a different aspect ratio. As a result, this form change would have an impact on the internal screen’s aspect ratio, potentially resulting in a slightly more square aspect ratio of 1.08:1 as opposed to the prior 5:6 aspect ratio.

However, the most recent leak from Universe Ice claims that the smartphone will include a 7.6-inch foldable display with a 7:6 aspect ratio and a 6.3-inch cover screen with a 22:9 aspect ratio. This change should provide a more user-friendly experience than the prior uncomfortable 23.1:9 aspect ratio of the Z Fold 5’s cover screen.

Software

In terms of software, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will most likely run Android 14 with the Samsung One UI 6.1 overlay, however Android 15 may be available by the time it ships.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to include the same exclusive features as the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra

The introduction of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 may potentially result in some new innovations, such as Galaxy AI. At this time, however, this is not confirmed.

According to OnLeaks (via Smartprix), the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is scheduled to receive seven major OS updates and seven years of security patches. That would correspond to what we’ve seen on the Galaxy S24 series.

This is all what we have this, but stay tuned we will continue to update this article with more details.
