Samsung decided to go with a titanium frame for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, and now it looks like the company is thinking of using the same material for its next folding phone.

As per leaker @Tech_Reve on X (formerly Twitter), the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is rumored to ditch the aluminum frame of the current Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and opt for a titanium one instead (via Android Police).
