Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim: Higher Price Than Regular Fold, No S Pen

Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim: Higher Price Than Regular Fold, No S Pen

We've been hearing rumors about a new addition to Samsung's foldable lineup, but the name—whether it will be Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim or Ultra—remains uncertain. A typically reliable leaker, Ice Universe, seems to have provided some clarity on the topic.

The tipster revealed on Weibo that Samsung is developing a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim, not an "Ultra" variant. The Weibo post translates to "It's not called Ultra because it’s not Ultra, it’s just thin." This implies that the Fold 6 Slim won't offer upgraded specs compared to the standard Fold 6. Instead, it seems to be a thinner version aimed primarily at enhancing portability.

No Upgrades, No Downgrades

Ice Universe supported this claim while responding to a user's comment about the Slim's configuration. The tipster clarified that there won't be a downgrade, but there won't be any upgrades either.

The trade-off for a slimmer design appears to be the lack of S Pen support. Ice Universe confirmed, while replying to another user's comment, that the Fold 6 Slim won't be compatible with the S Pen. Apparently, Samsung is making the foldable thinner by removing the digitizer needed for pen input, which means no S Pen for this model.

Higher Price Point

Perhaps most surprisingly, even without any upgrades or S Pen support, Ice Universe suggests the Fold 6 Slim will be priced higher than the standard Fold 6.

Samsung has yet to officially confirm the Galaxy Z Fold 6 or Flip 6, but these devices are likely to be launched at the Unpacked event rumored for July 10.

Future Launch Plans

According to a previous report, the Fold 6 Slim will not be part of this launch event. Instead, Samsung plans to release the slimmer Z Fold 6 alongside the Galaxy S25 series in early 2025. The rumored Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE and Z Flip 6 FE are also in development, targeting a more affordable foldable market.
