If the rumors are true, it means there's less than a month until Samsung's next big hardware launch. The company is set to hold its Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris, France on July 10, where it is expected to showcase the Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Watch Ultra, Galaxy Buds 3 Pro, Galaxy Ring, and other products. In anticipation of this, the South Korean company has started opening official support pages for the devices. The upcoming foldable device now has a support page on Samsung's website.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 release official support page
Samsung has released support pages for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 on its official websites in India and the UAE. In both regions, the foldable device is listed with the model number SM-F956B/DS, which is the dual-SIM version of the global version of the device. The US version has the model number SM-F956U. The listing on the Samsung UAE website also mentions the product name Galaxy Z Fold 6. As expected, the support page is not fully developed and no further information is provided.

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 is no different, with an official support page now up and running on the Samsung UAE website. The listing is for the global version (SM-F741B/DS) and includes its name. These pages usually indicate an imminent launch of the device, and Samsung starts developing the site early so that it's ready when the product officially launches. These foldable devices are expected to get similar support pages on the company's website in other regions, including the US, soon.

As mentioned above, Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked may take place on July 10 (official confirmation is still pending). This year, the Korean company will be in Paris, as France will be hosting the Summer Olympics. This mega sporting event will start on July 26. Samsung is one of the biggest sponsors in the world. The company has been sponsoring the Olympics for decades. With the city flooded with Olympic spectators, the company wants to make the most of the advertising opportunity for its new products.

Prices are likely to rise for both new foldable devices
Leaks have revealed a lot about the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6. The new foldable devices won't have many major hardware upgrades (the Fold is likely to have fewer notable upgrades than the Flip), but they will likely cost more than their respective predecessors. There are rumors that Samsung will raise prices by $100 across the board, although it's unclear if the rumored price hikes will apply globally. We should have a clearer picture as the launch event next month approaches.
