However, the outlook for the launch of this high-end model is not optimistic. So far, only one model of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 Ultra version with the model number SM-F958N has been found, and the letter “N” typically indicates that this model is exclusive to the Korean market. Unless more models are introduced, the Galaxy Z Fold6 Ultra version may be limited to the Korean market. In terms of specifications, the Galaxy Z Fold6 Ultra version will come with the S Pen stylus as standard and may feature a built-in slot for storage. Additionally, this model might incorporate some design elements from the Galaxy S24 Ultra, such as the square-edged frame design.
