This is the Galaxy foldable that won't debut at the Unpacked event today
Wow, that was fast: a wild rumor was debunked even before making headlines!

Apparently, a bold claim was made on social media that a possible collaboration between Samsung and LVMH – don't worry if the LVMH abbreviation feels unfamiliar. I'm certain you've heard about the luxury conglomerate's iconic brands like Louis Vuitton, Moët Hennessy, Tiffany, Dior, Loro Piana, and many others.

However, such a possibility was almost immediately repudiated and we won't get to see a limited edition foldable Galaxy Z Fold 6 with a Louis Vuitton twist. It was said that this collaboration would be in honor of the upcoming Paris Olympic Games. Coincidence or not, it's also Paris that hosts Samsung's July 10 event: the grand Summer edition of the Galaxy Unpacked event.

Samsung has officially refuted rumors about launching the alleged special edition device in collaboration with LVMH at the Unpacked event. A company representative confirmed to The Korea Herald that Samsung is not collaborating with any partner on an "Olympic phone" and declined to comment further on the possibility of an Olympic-themed phone. "But the official declined to further elaborate on the possible launch of an Olympic-themed special edition phone", the report reads.

Samsung often collaborates with luxury brands on themed phones, such as the Thom Browne Editions of the Galaxy Z foldables.
