Samsung’s Next-Gen Foldables: Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 7

In August 2023, Samsung released its latest foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, which continue to attract buyers worldwide. However, the company is already preparing for the next generation of foldables. Recently, it registered the brand names for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 7 in South Korea, indicating that the naming convention will remain the same for at least the next couple of years. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 is set to arrive in 2024, followed by the Galaxy Z Fold 7 in 2025.

Samsung’s Future Plans for Galaxy Z Flip Lineup

While the brand names for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 7 have not been secured yet, it is expected that Samsung will do so soon. Rumors are already circulating about the Galaxy Z Flip 6, suggesting that it will receive a significant camera upgrade next year. The primary shooter is rumored to be upgraded to 50MP, a substantial improvement from the 12MP camera found on the 2023 model. It remains uncertain whether the Fold lineup will receive a camera upgrade as well, as the book-type foldables have generally offered better camera performance than the Flip lineup.

Samsung’s Early Trademark Applications for Galaxy Products

Samsung has recently been registering brand names for its upcoming Galaxy products earlier than usual. For instance, it secured the trademark for the Galaxy S24 branding more than six months before the expected launch of its 2024 flagship models. Furthermore, the company filed trademark applications for both its 2024 and 2025 foldable models. This early registration could potentially indicate an earlier launch of the Galaxy S24 series, as rumors suggest Samsung may unveil its 2024 flagships a few weeks earlier than the Galaxy S23 series debuted in February 2023. The production of components starting in November, a month earlier than usual, supports this speculation. More information regarding the Galaxy S24 launch timeline is anticipated in the upcoming weeks.
