The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 could be unveiled later this year alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 6. The phones haven’t been officially announced yet, but leaked details of the alleged foldable devices have surfaced online over the past few months. They are expected to succeed the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 respectively, which were launched in July 2023. The newer models are said to come with significant upgrades over the current ones. A new report claims that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could be Samsung’s thinnest foldable phone yet.

Car report quoted a post by X (formerly Twitter) user @RjeyTech showing a mockup of the expected Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 compared to the previous model. The image shows the hinge side of the foldable book-style headphones side by side. When folded, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 measures 13.4mm. According to the mockup, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will measure just 11mm.

The report notes that the image is not a render of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, but a modified image of the current Galaxy Z Fold 5 model. But the image helps demonstrate that if true, it will make a huge difference in appearance. It should be noted that the alleged foldable was also previously thought to be a slimmer design.

According to the report, at 11mm thick, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will be the thinnest foldable smartphone ever from the South Korean tech giant. The company could also use a titanium frame similar to that of the Galaxy S24 Ultra to achieve a change in dimensions without compromising the structural integrity of the model, the report added. It should be noted that the Galaxy S24 Ultra is 8.6mm thick, which is thinner than the 8.9mm Galaxy S23 Ultra, which uses an aluminum chassis.

In other news, a recent leak claims that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could come with the same primary camera as the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The latter comes with a quad rear camera setup led by a 200-megapixel primary sensor. It also has a 12-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a 50-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 10-megapixel camera.

Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with larger displays than the previous model, which sports a 7.6-inch main display and a 6.2-inch cover. The company may also launch a more affordable foldable model alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, which could be codenamed the Samsung Galaxy Z FE.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 alongside the Galaxy Tab S9 series and the Galaxy Watch 6 series at its first Galaxy Unpacked event in South Korea.
