Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Might Get an Ultra Sibling with Premium Specs

Samsung's upcoming foldable phone lineup might be getting a surprise addition this year. Alongside the expected Galaxy Z Fold 6, rumors suggest a premium "Ultra" variant with top-of-the-line specs and a potentially hefty price tag.

This information comes from reliable tech journalist Roland Quandt, who gathered intel at MWC 2024. Similar to the Galaxy S series, Samsung might be offering two tiers within the Z Fold line. The standard Z Fold 6 would cater to users seeking a high-end foldable experience at a more accessible price point. The Z Fold 6 Ultra, on the other hand, would target those who prioritize the absolute best features and are willing to pay a premium for them.

Speculative Differences: Bigger, Better, Pricier?

While specific details remain unclear, Quandt expects the Z Fold 6 Ultra to differ from its standard counterpart in several key areas. These potential differences include:
  • Display: Larger display size for the Ultra model.
  • Storage: Increased storage capacity on the Ultra.
  • S Pen support: Exclusive S Pen support on the Ultra for note-taking and creative tasks.
  • Camera: Upgraded camera system on the Ultra, potentially featuring a higher megapixel count or additional lenses.
  • Battery: Larger battery on the Ultra for extended use.
  • Design: A slimmer and potentially more modern design for the Ultra.
It's important to remember that this information is still based on speculation. We'll have to wait for official confirmation from Samsung to know for sure.

Expected Design and Specs for the Standard Z Fold 6:

Based on leaked CAD renders, the standard Z Fold 6 is expected to sport a boxier design with flat edges, similar to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It might come in a Phantom Black color option and feature:
  • A 7.6-inch main foldable display and a 6.2-inch cover display.
  • A triple-lens rear camera system, possibly retaining the same 50MP main, 12MP ultrawide, and 10MP telephoto sensors as the Z Fold 5.
  • A 10MP under-display camera and a 4MP cover camera for selfies.
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.


While the Z Fold 6 Ultra remains unconfirmed, it suggests Samsung is exploring ways to cater to different user preferences within the foldable market. Whether the standard Z Fold 6 or the rumored Ultra version appeals to you more, both models are expected to arrive sometime in July 2024.
