A tweet from a Twitter tipster who uses the name "RGcloudS" (via NotebookCheck) says that Samsung plans on revamping its high-end lineup starting as soon as 2025. According to this rumor, Samsung will offer its regular Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip models but will also add a premium "Ultra" variant to each one. That means that there would be a Galaxy Z Fold and a Galaxy Z Fold Ultra, a Galaxy Z Flip, and a Galaxy Z Flip Ultra.
The regular (for lack of a better word) Galaxy Z Fold will feature a QHD+ (1440p) resolution display sourced from China's BOE. The screen on the Galaxy Z Ultra will have a 4K resolution and will be produced in-house by Samsung. The regular Galaxy Z Flip will sport an FHD+ (1080p) display from BOE while the Galaxy Z Flip Ultra will be equipped with a 2K screen from Samsung Display. We can only imagine what kind of price premium Samsung might want for "Ultra" versions of its established foldable models.
The tipster says that Samsung will introduce two new foldable models sometime after 2024. One will feature a tri-fold display and be named the Galaxy Z Flex while the other will be known as the Galaxy Z Tab. There is no information about the latter, but the Galaxy Z Flex tri-fold display might have been teased by Samsung last year along with a slidable phone. If we can put our thinking caps on for a second, perhaps we can see that it's possible that the Galaxy Z Tab will use the slidable display that we saw alongside the tri-fold this past August.
Twitter tipster RGCloudS says Samsung will soon shake up its smartphone lineup
Both the Galaxy Z Flex and Galaxy Z Tab aren't expected to see the light of day soon, but both are expected to feature a display with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits. Both will reportedly be designed by Samsung's Hubert Lee who recently joined Sammy's MX (mobile experience) business after leaving Mercedes-Benz where he was Chief Design Officer.

The tipster goes on to say that Samsung will replace many of its mid-range Galaxy A phones with a Galaxy K line, and the Galaxy S Plus model will be discontinued and replaced with a Galaxy S Premium unit. So sometime after 2024, we could see Samsung release a high-end series made up of the Galaxy S, Galaxy S Ultra, and the Galaxy S Premium every year.

Since Samsung does not yet have any contracts or supply agreements signed with BOE, we should probably take this report with a grain of salt.
