Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5 was launched just this month. However, we have already started to hear rumors about its successor, the Galaxy Z Fold 6, and what it could look like. If everything were to pan out, Samsung's next premium foldable will share the same design language with its unreleased Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Well-known leaker Ice Universe shared a bunch of pictures and a clip of an alleged Galaxy Z Fold 6 mold. Apparently, the device showed off the same flat panels as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (review) in its folded form, but with a slightly improved hinge formation and noticeable fully flat folded panels.

What's interesting is the slightly different aspect ratio that is only shown on the front cover. It appears to be wider compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. This is said to be similar to the upcoming Galaxy S24 Ultra, which is perhaps the most radical change that Samsung has made in its vertical folding lineup.

Apart from the middle frame, the bezels are rather modest on this device. However, the leaker suggested this could still change in the final Galaxy Z Fold 6 design. Furthermore, there is still a centered punch hole that houses the selfie camera. This might disappoint some fans who were expecting Samsung to extend the under-display solution in the inner screen to the cover.

Moving on to the bottom view, the dummy unit presented a radically different design from its predecessor. It is evident that the dummy unit showed off both panels' meeting points in a symmetrical manner, resulting in a flat bottom. The curve of the cross-section is believed to be identical to the Galaxy S24 Ultra as well.

What do you think of the alleged Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 design? Do you prefer the foldable to have a wider aspect ratio or a narrower one? Tell us in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
