The cheaper and thinner Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 could be cancelled

As usual, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 in the second half of this year. However, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and its possible differences. Some reports claim that Samsung will launch a cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 (Fan Edition), while others claim that the South Korean company will launch a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra, perhaps with better cameras. A new report claims that the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 could be cancelled.

The cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 has reportedly been canceled without S Pen compatibility

According to new Report by TheElecSamsung is reconsidering its plans to launch the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 phone this year. The South Korean company reportedly planned to launch the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 alongside the standard Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, it reportedly lacks the digitizer required for S Pen functionality, which means it lacks S Pen compatibility. The company is said to have recently completed testing of the device, which features an IPX8 rating and a 200,000 fold rating, but was no thinner than foldable phones from competing Chinese companies. Mass production of Galaxy Z Fold 6 components is scheduled to begin this month.

Due to insufficient product differentiation and market uncertainties, Samsung is reportedly planning to cancel the launch. According to the report, only the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6 will be launched.
