Galaxy Z Fold 6 may not support Wi-Fi 7, FCC certification reveals

Samsung’s next flagship foldable phone is now one step closer to launch. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 has picked up a few certifications over the last few weeks from regulatory authorities around the world, and it has now received blessings from the USA’s FCC as well.

According to the FCC certification, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 doesn’t have support for Wi-Fi 7. That is a little surprising as the Galaxy S24 Ultra is certified for Wi-Fi 7, and Samsung usually keeps its Galaxy S Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold smartphones on an equal footing when it comes to connectivity features. The Galaxy Z Flip 6’s FCC certification doesn’t mention Wi-Fi 7 support either.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 connectivity feature set not as high-end as expected

We have known for some time that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will not be a substantial upgrade over the Galaxy Z Fold 5, but we didn’t expect it to lack features like Wi-Fi 7 that are built into the Snapdragon chip that will power the phone.

Samsung’s decision to keep the list of upgrades on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 limited may have something to do with its plans to launch an Ultra variant with higher-end specs. There’s also a Fold 6 Slim that’s supposedly larger, thinner, and costs around the same as the standard Fold 6, though we’re assuming that model will also be unable to connect to Wi-Fi 7 networks.

Except Wi-Fi 7, the connectivity feature set on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 appears to match that of the Galaxy S24 Ultra. It will feature 5G (sub6 and mmWave), Ultra-wideband (UWB), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/6e, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.3 support.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 at its Unpacked event in Paris on July 10. Samsung will also unveil new smartwatches, its first smart ring, and new wireless earbuds at the same venue.
