Samsung is planning an Unpacked event in July to unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Fold 6. As the launch draws closer, more and more details about the foldable Android devices are leaking out. Today's leak may have revealed the price of the upcoming Flip, but it's not good news.

According to a report posted by Smartprix, Samsung’s upcoming foldable will start at a hefty $1899 for the 256GB model, going all the way up to $2259 for 1TB. For those who keep track, that’s a price bump of $100 year-over-year, which is significant. When we’re talking about a starting price of nearly $2K, we have to hope that Samsung is adding in $100 of value somewhere, but we won’t know for certain until the device is made official.

If the leak is true, it marks Samsung's decision to raise the price by $100. This is a bit of a surprise as there have been rumors that Samsung wants to lower the entry level for its foldable devices.

The outlet also adds that the handset will weigh 187g, have a 6.7-inch display and the same processor as before.

Yesterday's leak also revealed that the Flip 6 will be launched in multiple color variants. These colors are Mint, Silver Shadow, Yellow, Blue, Craft Black (online exclusive), Peach (online exclusive), and White (online exclusive). This means the Flip 6 won't come in the Flip 5's cream, graphite, gray, green, or lavender colors.

Colors were also mentioned, with launch options said to be navy blue, silver shadow, and pink.

The price increase supports the idea that the best time to buy a Samsung phone is during the pre-order stage, as that's how you'll save the most money. Samsung may offer free memory upgrades, promotional trade-in prices, and instant discounts. If the Z Fold 6 is on your shopping list, it should be ready around July 10th.
