Galaxy Z Fold 6 & more products pass regulatory hurdles before launch


Samsung is rapidly completing the formalities before launching its new foldables and watches. The company has already put up official support pages for the devices on its website. It has also obtained several regulatory certifications for its upcoming products, including the Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Watch 7, and Galaxy Watch Ultra. The devices have just passed a couple more regulatory hurdles on their way to launch next month.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Watch 7 pass more regulatory hurdles

The folks over at MySmartPrice recently discovered the Galaxy Z Fold 6 on the official website of the Singaporean regulatory body IMDA (Infocomm Media Development Authority). The agency listed the device with the model number SM-F956B/DS, which is the dual-SIM variant of its global version. The US version has the model numbers SM-F956U and SM-F956U1, with dual-SIM variants adding the “DS” suffix to the model number.

Separately, the publication found a similar certification listing for the Galaxy Watch 7 on an Indonesian telecom authority’s website. It mentioned the model number SM-L300 for the upcoming Samsung smartwatch along with its marketing name (Galaxy Watch 7). It’s the 40mm Bluetooth version version. The 44mm variant has the model number SM-L310, while their LTE models bear the identifiers SM-L305 and SM-L315, respectively.

These listings don’t reveal anything new we don’t already know about the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Watch 7. However, they indicate Samsung is closing in on the launch event. It hasn’t officially announced the date yet but there is enough evidence on the internet suggesting a July 10 unveiling of these products. Along with the new foldables and watches, the company may also launch new wireless earbuds and the Galaxy Ring at the event.

Leaks have already revealed a lot about these devices

Samsung’s next Unpacked may still be three weeks away, but there isn’t much left to know about the devices in the pipeline. Leaks have already revealed a lot about them, particularly the new foldables. The Korean firm is making them thinner and wider. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 also gets a titanium frame, while the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is picking up a new 50MP primary rear camera. There aren’t other major hardware upgrades to look forward to.

For smartwatch enthusiasts, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Ultra could be of great interest. It’s the company’s first Ultra-branded watch. The wearable has a titanium body, a big battery, a big and bright display, a new chipset (probably Samsung’s first 3nm chip), and a lot more. Unsurprisingly, it will cost big too, with rumors suggesting a launch price of $700 and above. Stay tuned for the official announcement in a few weeks.
