The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are expected to debut later this year as successors to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, respectively, along with a third entry-level foldable phone. Elec reports (in Korean) that the smartphone maker plans to launch its foldable phones in the second half of 2024. Meanwhile, the South Korean firm is expected to finalize specifications and suppliers for the Samsung Galaxy S25 series of smartphones by May.

According to report, Samsung will begin manufacturing components for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 in early May, allowing the company to launch these foldable phones by mid-July. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 on July 26 last year — its 2022 models arrived in August.

Two months after the expected launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Fold 6, Samsung is also planning to launch a cheaper version of the latter called the Galaxy Z Fold FE, according to the report. This more affordable model will reportedly arrive without stylus support to keep costs low, and will debut around September or October — around the same time Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 16 series of smartphones.

The successors to the Galaxy S24 series of smartphones are expected to arrive in early 2025, and Samsung is expected to decide on product specifications and component suppliers for its next flagship phones by the end of May, according to the report.

Last month, it was reported that Samsung is working on a standard Galaxy Z Fold 6 and a Galaxy Z Fold ‘Ultra’ model that could be released later this year – the latter will be the company’s most expensive foldable phone, like the Galaxy series S, which also has an Ultra model. More details about the company’s foldable phones are likely to emerge in the coming weeks and months.
