The most exciting Samsung foldable phone this year may not be the clamshell Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 or the flagship Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, but the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE will be a cheaper alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6, so while it may lack some of that phone’s specs and features, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE could be the first truly affordable foldable phone .

The cheaper Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE is all but confirmed to arrive this September, and Samsung is doing everything it can to differentiate the cheaper alternative from the high-end Galaxy Z Fold 6. Like its predecessor, the latter will include S-Pen support, a feature that will be missing from the FE version.

The aspect ratio may also change, but this won’t affect the Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE. We expect the latter’s design to closely follow the regular Z Fold 5, as was the case with the other FE models which are closely related to the previous flagship model devices.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE will use the same shell and main display as the Galaxy Z Fold 5, but may not have a 1-120 Hz dynamic refresh rate and will not be as bright. For reference, the Z Fold 5 comes with a 7.6-inch inner screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, while the 6.2-inch overlay also has the same 120Hz refresh rate.

As for the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE, word is that it will cost less than $800 (approximately £625 / AU$1,210). Now, while that’s not cheap, it’s significantly cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 , which starts at $1,799.99 / £1,749 / AU$2,599.
