Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra Exists, but May Not Be Available in All Markets: Report

Apr1,2024



Various rumors and leaks we've come across so far suggest that Samsung may launch more than one book-style Galaxy Z Fold 6 model this year. Although the timeline of these releases is still quite vague, it is said that Samsung may hold its next Unpacked launch event in Paris earlier than the usual date. There are a lot of rumors not only about a more affordable Galaxy Z Fold model, but also about a more premium model. It is tagged as the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra and is expected to come with better features than the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6 model. Now, a report claims that this new high-end foldable model may not come to all markets.

A report from Galaxyclub.nl suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra is in development. It also says that the device has been developed under model code Q6A. The website reports that Samsung is working on a new device with model number SM-F958, which according to the source is the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with 'Ultra' branding. This is because the last digit of Samsung's model numbering system usually indicates the model type.

According to the report, the number '6' has always been used to describe 'Fold models', while the number '8' has always been used for 'Ultra' models in recent years. For example, the current Galaxy Z Fold 5 is said to be SM-F946, while the upcoming Fold is expected to have the SM-F956 model number. Meanwhile, the model number of Galaxy S24 Ultra is SM-S928.

Indeed, the new model number marks the first time Samsung's foldable has featured the unusual fusion of the Galaxy Z and Galaxy S series with 'Ultra' branding. Samsung currently also uses the 'Ultra' branding for its Galaxy Tab S tablet series and its Galaxy Book laptop series.

However, it is not all good news. As Galaxyclub.nl also points out, only the SM-F958N model is being worked on by Samsung right now. The letter 'N' at the end indicates that this is a variant of the device developed for the South Korean market. The currently available information does not specify device models or variants for other markets. And that's why the source has concluded that Samsung may only release the standard model called Galaxy Z Fold 6 at the time of launch.

Along with the Galaxy Z Fold 6, Samsung is also expected to launch its Galaxy Z Flip 6 model at the upcoming Unpacked, which is expected to be held in Paris, France this year.
