The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra could make its debut this year alongside the company’s expected clamshell and book-style foldable phones, according to a report. The South Korean tech firm may introduce standard and “Ultra” models in the Galaxy Z Fold series, with the latter offering more advanced hardware specs and features. Like the company’s Galaxy S-series smartphones, the alleged Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra is also expected to debut with a higher price tag than the regular model.

According to WinFuture report (in German), citing sources at the current Mobile World Congress, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and a more expensive Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra model. It is expected to debut as the company’s most premium foldable phone — similar to the Galaxy S24 Ultra model in the flagship Galaxy S-series range.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has been tipped to release two book-style foldable phones this year. A report from January stated that Samsung plans to introduce two models as successors to the Galaxy Z Fold 5, hinting at the arrival of a cheaper variant. In contrast, WinFuture’s report suggests that the company is planning to introduce a premium version of the foldable phone with some notable improvements over the standard model.

According to the publication, the Galaxy Z Fold Ultra model may have a different design compared to the company’s previous smartphones. This model could have a different screen size and a more modern, slimmer look – like the Honor Magic V2, Pixel Fold and OnePlus Open. The premium model can also be equipped with more advanced cameras, more built-in storage, improved battery capacity and S Pen support.

Earlier this week, CAD renders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 were leaked by a tipster. The phone is said to have a new design with sharper edges, similar to the corners of the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The leaked images show the presence of a vertically aligned triple rear camera along with a selfie camera in a centrally aligned punch notch on the outer screen. Notably missing from the renders was the presence of an S Pen stand or storage, which points to the possibility of it being available in the alleged ‘Ultra’ model.
