This could be the gateway for many users to enter the world of foldable devices from the Koreans.

Samsung was the pioneer in foldable phones. With its two models, the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold, it has dominated the foldable industry to date.
But as nothing lasts forever, the reign of the Koreans is starting to face challenges. After five generations, Chinese brands have reached the gates with a clear intention to bring it down.
So far, Samsung had no rival, but now things could get complicated
And they have valid arguments. Brands like Honor with its Honor Magic V2 or OnePlus with the OnePlus Open have undoubtedly made an impact on the sales of the Korean giant, who has realized that it cannot rest on its laurels if it wants to maintain its leadership.
That’s why the company with three stars is looking for solutions, and as reported by the specialized media The Elect, one of them would involve launching three foldable models this summer, the classic Flip and Fold in their sixth generation, and a budget-friendly version of the Fold, or at least a much more affordable price.
Indeed, these rumors have surfaced in the past, and this time there is the added factor of fierce competition from Chinese foldables, which offer excellent devices at substantially lower prices than Samsung.
Samsung certainly has its arguments to compete in this battle, from security and ecosystem to update policy. However, undoubtedly, a Galaxy Z Fold 6 “FE” option would be a perfect excuse for a large number of consumers who don’t want or can’t afford the approximately €1,800 price of the current Fold model.
