Rumors about a more affordable Samsung Galaxy Fold6 have been going around for a while and it was expected to launch at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July alongside the Galaxy Z Fold6 Ultra, Z Flip6 and Galaxy Ring. A new report from South Korean outlet The Elec suggests that may not end up happening this year as Samsung is reexamining its plans to launch the Galaxy Z Fold6 FE.

The report specifies that the early Z Fold6 FE production units were not thinner than its key competitors from Chinese brands and that the device lacked a stylus digitizer which means it didn’t support S Pen input. Samsung believes these factors combined with market uncertainties are enough to postpone the launch for now. Samsung is expected to continue to work on bringing more affordable variants of its Z Fold and Z Flip series next year.
