Samsung foldables could soon include Fan Edition (FE) siblings, a new leak suggests. Blurred and partially obfuscated labels hint Samsung could be developing multiple variants of its foldable Android smartphone lineup.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 is undoubtedly a premium foldable smartphone. However, Samsung is already rumored to be working on an even more luxurious, premium, and consequentially pricey version. A new rumor claims Samsung might offer slightly affordable variants of the Galaxy Z Fold smartphone, presumably under the FE branding.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold FE and Flip FE versions in the works?

A new leak on X (formerly Twitter) from a username “kro” claims Samsung is developing the Galaxy Z Flip FE and the Galaxy Z Fold FE. The tipster claims the specifications of these Samsung FE foldable devices are final.

“I’m developing both the Flip FE and the Fold FE, but it seems only one will be released. I already have the spec sheets, but I’m contemplating whether to share them with subscribers first.”

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip FE reportedly packs 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold FE would ship with 12GB or 16GB of RAM, a couple of blurred images reveal. Buyers would have the option to choose between 256GB and 512GB of internal storage.

Needless to mention, these aren’t impressive specifications for a foldable smartphone, especially considering what the competition is planning. Moreover, the leak also suggests an unknown Exynos 2xxx SoC (System on a Chip) would power the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold FE.

Samsung has remained loyal to the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets for its premium Android smartphones. Hence, it is highly unlikely that the company may opt for an Exynos chipset, even if it wants to keep the costs down.

Is Samsung trying to boost its sales?

Samsung may host its next Samsung Unpacked event in the third quarter of this year, presumably in July. As is the norm, the company would launch multiple smart devices, wearables, and smartphones in a variety of form factors.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip Android smartphones are already in their sixth generation. However, the company has yet to offer a Fan Edition (FE) of these foldable devices. Currently, the company reserves the FE branding for a few of the top-end candy-bar Samsung Galaxy devices.

Galaxy Z Fold6 – THREE VARIANTS!!!

Galaxy Z Fold series is to expand from one variant, to three, those being the FE, base, and Ultra variants.

It is hard to say where the Ultra will all be available in the world, but it is to bring a lot that we have been wanting for a while!…

Although the rumor isn’t from the most reliable of sources, Samsung does need to increase its sales. The company experienced a slight dip in sales last year. Hence, the company may offer one or more aggressively-priced FE of foldable smartphones from the premium Galaxy Z Fold series. These smartphones would undoubtedly offer a decent boost to sales.

As always, you’ll want to take this information with a grain of salt. The source is a little shaky, so we’ll keep you updated on any further developments.
