Galaxy Z Fold 6 Leak Hints at Samsung’s Slimmest Foldable Yet

The Galaxy Z Fold 5 weighs around 250g and is very light and comfortable for a foldable phone. At its slimmest point, Fold 5 is 13.4mm thick when closed. When opened, it’s 6.1mm thick. This is already impressive, but the Z Fold 6 is apparently pushing the boundaries even further.

The new Z Fold 6 will pack many upgrades, possibly Samsung’s slimmest smartphone yet. According to a report, the thickness will just touch 11mm when you close it. This is extremely impressive since it could be under 6mm thick when opened.

Renders online show the Z Fold 6, though it’s not official. It’s an edited image of the current Z Fold 5 to make it appear like the upcoming Z Fold 6. Multiple sources have stated that the Fold 6 will get a slimmer overall design language. A render from a post on X (via RjeyTech) shows that Samsung is making the Fold 6 much thinner.

There’s a chance that Samsung could use Titanium for the frame, following the footsteps of the S24 Ultra. The previous Aluminium chassis makes it a bit thicker. The mockup from the post shows how it might look. Titanium theoretically makes the Fold 6 slimmer and is the more premium material for their flagship phone.

Since Samsung allegedly launched a cheaper FE model for the Fold 6, they might want to differentiate on the more expensive model with more premium materials. We expect the Fold 6 to launch in July at the second Galaxy Unpacked this year. However, if the Fold 6 is this thin, we can rule out that it’ll come with a stylus inside. That is not possible.

The cheaper model will mostly cut costs with weaker cameras, a weaker chip, no stylus support, and no under-display camera. The cheaper model might not get the battery upgrades either. The Fold 6 will get better camera hardware and battery capacity, too.
