The prices of the new Samsung Galaxy foldable phones is a hot topic among the tech community. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 are going to be launched soon, and we all know that they’re going to be north of a thousand dollars when they launch. Following a recent price leak, we have word of another possible price that these phones could launch at.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 might be the least expensive foldable to launch yet
This new leak came from a blog post on the Korean site Naver. It cuts to the chase and shows the prices that the phones are expected to launch at.
Firstly, it shows the price that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to launch at. It estimates that it will cost between 1.9 and 1.99 million won. That roughly converts to $1,657.51 – $1,736.03. That’s a decent price cut from the prices of the previous generations. The prices for the first and second generation were $1,980 and $1,999, respectively.
Folks who want a foldable phone, but don’t want to spend too much money, may want to consider the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The price is predicted to be between 1.2 and 1.28 million won. That roughly converts to $1,046.66 – $1,116.43. The current Galaxy Z Flip launched at $1,499. This is a pretty big price cut.
The expected specs for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3
These two phones are expected to come with specs that are on par with most of the premium phones on the market today. They are expected to be using the Snapdragon 888 SoC with its accompanying GPU.
While the silicon is up to date, the storage ad RAM configuration isn’t. The phones are expected to have 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. We’ve seen phones launch with double the storage and double the RAM this year. However, whatever Samsung can do to keep the price should be done.
Other features include 120Hz displays and 5G connectivity. All of these specs will either be confirmed or debunked when the devices actually launch.
These devices are to be unveiled on August 11th
The date of Samsung’s next Unpacked event has been leaked, and now it’s basically confirmed. We can expect Samsung to hold its next event come August 11th. With this event, we know that the company is going to be taking the wraps off of its Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. While these devices are expected to be showcased, it’s reported that there will be no tablets at the event.
