Several rumors circulated regarding a slimmer or higher-end version of the Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, Samsung doesn't seem to be launching that device at its next Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10. According to a new report, the device hasn't been canceled and is coming a few months later.

Slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 is said to feature bigger screens

According to a report from TheElec, Samsung is developing a slimmer version of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with bigger screens. The device reportedly features a 6.5-inch cover screen and an 8-inch internal screen. If this information is correct, both those screens would be bigger than the 6.3-inch cover screen and the 7.6-inch internal screen on the Galaxy Z Fold 6.

This slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 will reportedly be launched in the fourth quarter of 2024. Samsung is planning to make 400,000 to 500,000 units of the device, which will be sold in very few countries. China is one of the countries that will see the launch of the slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6.

Samsung's aim with this device is to show that it is possible to make a thinner device than its current Galaxy Z Fold phones. However, the company reportedly had to remove the S Pen digitizer to reach its target, so it won't be compatible with the S Pen stylus. According to the report, the device features higher-end specifications than the standard version, but it didn't reveal them.

Some reports in the past claimed that the slimmer version of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will come with higher-end cameras, but it isn't clear if the device can match the quad-camera setup of the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

A component manufacturer in Samsung's supply chain reportedly said that the slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 started in the first quarter of this year. Samsung's development process for high-end phones usually takes a year, so it was natural that its launch would be delayed compared to the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6.

If the slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 has bigger screens and better specifications, expect the phone to be costlier than the standard version.
