The cheaper and thinner Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 may be canceled

As usual, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 in the second half of this year. However, there remains a lot of confusion regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and its possible variants. Some reports claim that Samsung will launch a cheaper (fan edition?) Galaxy Z Fold 6, while others claim that the South Korean company will launch a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra, possibly with better cameras. A new report claims that the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 may be cancelled.

According to a new report from TheElec, Samsung is rethinking its plans to launch a cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 this year. The South Korean company reportedly plans to launch a cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 alongside the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, it is said to lack the digitizer required for S Pen functionality, meaning it lacks S Pen compatibility. The company is said to have recently completed testing of a device with an IPX8 rating and 200,000 fold rating, but it was no thinner than foldable phones from rival Chinese companies. Mass production of Galaxy Z Fold 6 components is set to begin this month.

Due to inadequate product differentiation and market uncertainties, Samsung is reportedly planning to cancel its launch. According to the report, only the standard Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 will be launched.

Cheap Galaxy Z Flip 7 may launch in 2025

According to the report, Samsung is planning to launch a cheaper Galaxy Z Flip 7 version next year. While the company's overall smartphone market share in China is less than 1%, its foldable smartphone market share is in double digits. In such a situation, Samsung is trying to increase its market share through cheap foldable phones.

Samsung MX CEO TM Roh said more than 100 million foldable phones could be shipped annually over the next five years. However, the company has lagged behind in this race. The foldable phones of Chinese companies have big and bright screens, big camera sensors, big batteries and fast charging. The company plans to become more competitive by releasing the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with better cameras, a thinner body, and better durability.
