Samsung Malaysia has revealed the local pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6! Now retailing from RM7,299, the starting price of the foldable phone is up by RM500, though you do get more for the money.

The RM7,299 starting price is for the 12GB + 256GB base model of the Galaxy Z Fold 6. If you want more storage, you can opt for 512GB model for RM7,899. Want even more storage? Then there’s the whopping 1TB variant for a cool RM9,099.

Compared to Galaxy AI on the Galaxy S24 series, the Z Fold 6 gets even more features. These include Composer to generate text based on simple prompts, a new conversation mode in the Interpreter app, and Sketch to Image, which can generate AI images from…well, sketches.

Hardware wise, there are no radical changes to the Galaxy Z Fold 6 beyond the usual upgrades. It is now powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, and as mentioned, the sides are now squared-off for a more ergonomic design. Unfortunately, the S Pen is still not built into the phone.

Other specifications of the Z Fold 6 include a 7.6-inch 2160 x 1856 Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, a 6.3-inch 2376 x 968 Dynamic AMOLED 2X cover screen – also with 120Hz adaptive refresh rate – a triple camera system (50MP primary + 12MP ultra-wide + 10MP telephoto), a 10MP selfie camera, a 4MP under display camera, and a 4,400mAh battery.

Oh, the phone is also rated IP48 now; an upgrade over the IPX8 rating of the Z Fold 5.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 is now available for pre-order in Malaysia from RM7,299. Early birds who purchase the foldable phone by 30 July can get up to RM2,329 worth of freebies, including a RM500 e-voucher, a 1-year Samsung Care+ protection, and up to RM500 enhanced trade-in value.
