Samsung “reconsiders” launching the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 phone

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 was thought to come in two variants, but a new report claims that Samsung has other ideas about launching a cheaper model.

According to new Report from electricalSamsung’s plans to release the affordable Galaxy Z Fold 6 are being “completely” reconsidered.

Why? The report says Samsung is considering product differentiation factors and “industry uncertainty.” The affordable folding model was rumored to cost less than $1,000. Another reason is that, apparently, the cheaper device is now the same thickness as the high-end model, although Samsung aims for the less expensive device to be thinner and better compete with foldable phones sold in China.

This is not the first time that Samsung is expected to launch a foldable phone at a lower price. In 2023, it was reported that Samsung would launch a low-cost foldable phone, but the company almost completely denied this, saying that it would not launch a foldable phone “at a mid-range price”.

But this year things looked different. There have been more sources claiming a cheaper foldable device is on the table, and we’ve heard more specific details including that it will lack S Pen support and possibly have a less powerful chipset. Given this context, it’s hard to believe that Samsung will get rid of the device, but there seems to be a good chance we won’t see it this year.

Samsung is expected to launch new foldable devices – although there will eventually be many more – alongside the Galaxy Ring, Watch 7 and more in July.

Meanwhile, the report claims that Samsung is considering releasing an “entry-level” version of the Galaxy Z Flip 7 for 2025.
