The mother of all Galaxy Z Fold 6 leaks claims to reveal the foldable's full spec sheet

The pretty much complete list of features and specifications purportedly revealed by the typically reliable folks over at Smartprix today is certainly not disappointing in and of itself, looking however way too familiar for Z Fold 5 and even Z Fold 4 owners.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 vs Z Fold 5: what's new, what's the same

Unfortunately, essentially all the rumors from the last few months seem to be gaining (further) credence today with an almost totally unchanged spec sheet. Yes, it appears that the Z Fold 6 will come with the exact same camera specifications, main display size, battery capacity, storage options, and RAM count as last year's Z Fold 5, making it mighty difficult for Samsung to justify that $100 price increase multiple trustworthy sources are anticipating.

The only upgrades featured on the above list are the undoubtedly welcome but also very predictable jump from the Z Fold 5's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor to a state-of-the-art new Gen 3 SoC and a slightly larger cover screen with a revised resolution count.

What those numbers do not include are all the cutting-edge AI technologies the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is otherwise widely expected to "borrow" from the Galaxy S24 family and possibly improve and optimize in a few different ways. The next-gen foldable powerhouse is also all but guaranteed to come with an all-new, sharper, and boxier design that will allow Samsung to reduce the Fold 5's thickness (both in folded and unfolded form), as well as the total product weight.

According to this hot new leak and older ones like it, the Z Fold 6 is quite a bit wider than its predecessor, as well as a tad shorter, so at least there's that to separate the two otherwise very similar foldable phones.

When will the Z Fold 6 be released and how much will it cost?

That first half of the availability equation is not yet etched in stone, with a few industry insiders predicting a glamorous Unpacked announcement on July 10 while others say the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 (and the Z Flip 6, and the Galaxy Watch 7 family) could take place a little later.

As far as the pricing aspect is concerned, we almost have no doubts anymore that the Z Fold 6 will be more expensive than the Z Fold 5, most likely fetching $1,899.99 in the US in an entry-level 256GB storage configuration, $2,019.99 with double the local digital hoarding room, and an exorbitant $2,259.99 in a top-of-the-line 1TB variant.

Are those price points justified? You will obviously have to decide that for yourselves when the Galaxy Z Fold 6 actually comes out, but before you do, make sure you also consider lower-cost alternatives like the OnePlus Open and Google Pixel Fold.
