The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra might just be more than a red herring. After months of rumors hinting at the launch of a third foldable smartphone at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event this year, a new report claims that the smartphone is likely to be launched. But there is a twist. The Ultra foldable will reportedly only be launched in South Korea and is not expected to be introduced in other regions. But on the upside, the tech giant is said to be launching two new smartwatches – the Galaxy Watch Ultra and the Galaxy Watch FE.

Information about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra comes from a report by Android Authority, which claims to have spotted the smartphone’s model number in its database. This suggests that the South Korean tech giant is developing a new foldable smartphone with the model number SM-F958N and corresponds to the Ultra variant. The reasoning behind this is that Samsung uses the number eight, as seen at the end of the model number, only for devices with the Ultra moniker. He highlighted that the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s model number is SM-S928x, while the Galaxy S24 has SM-S921x as its model number. The pattern is constant in previous years as well.

Furthermore, the report claims that only one model number of the smartphone has been found, suggesting its limited availability. The letter N in the model number is said to indicate the region of South Korea, and based on this, the publication states that the Fold 6 Ultra may not be released anywhere else.

In a separate report, Android Authority also claims that Samsung may launch the Galaxy Watch Ultra and Galaxy Watch FE soon. If the report is to be believed, these two smartwatches will be successors to the two existing smartwatches — Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic. They are said to be part of the Watch 7 series, which will see the departure of the Classic variant and the entry of the FE and Ultra variants. The report found three model numbers SM-L705U, SM-L705N and SM-L705F for the Watch Ultra. The N, U and F stand for South Korea, US and Global, indicating that the smartwatch will be available everywhere. Similarly, three model numbers for the Watch FE variant are reported to be SM-R866F, SM-R866U and SM-R866N.

It should be noted that the report did not mention when the smartwatches might be launched, but considering that the Watch 6 series was released in August 2023, the next Galaxy Unpacked event could introduce the Watch 7 series. According to the information the event is expected to take place in July.
