The Galaxy Z Fold6 is thought to be the first device of its premium foldable line to lose its status as a Samsung flagship to a new Ultra variant in 2024. Now, more tantalizing signs of this new, allegedly top-end Android handset may have surfaced courtesy of a leak that also hints at confirmed international availability for the upcoming smartphone.

The Galaxy Z Fold series is tipped to go Ultra for the first time in its upcoming 6th generation, a rumor with  (nearly) consistent traction as Galaxy Unpacked draws ever closer. Now, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has reportedly yielded another potentially compelling sign of the new top-end variant's existence.

The BIS' decision to certify 2 new Samsung batteries at once might be a sign that they are for a new foldable smartphone. Furthermore, their model numbers differ from those most recently linked to the Galaxy Z Fold series: EB-BF959ABE and EB-BF959ABY, whereas those of the Z Fold6 reportedly have an EB-BF956 prefix.

They do not, admittedly, correspond exactly to the Ultra's alleged model number (SM-F958), yet are considered too similar to ignore with the prospect of another all-new, higher-tier foldable flagship making its way to India in the near future.

On the other hand, the new BIS registration fails to ascertain whether the Z Fold6 Ultra will have a larger battery compared to its newly vanilla counterpart or not.

Meanwhile, the Z Fold5 still starts at INR 139,999 (~$1,678) on Amazon.in
