Read on after the ad.
New Folds and Flips in development
There have been rumors for some time that Samsung is developing several new foldable smartphones. That’s no surprise, as the company launched the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip this year. They will of course receive successors. According to a recent rumor, Samsung will not be presenting the latest Z Flip – a folding phone – along with the Galaxy S21 range and the Z Fold 3 – which unfolds like a book – will be unveiled in the summer of 2021.
The new coverage of the South Korean The Elec claims three other models are also in the works. The site does not write anything concrete about the three devices, but there have been rumors for a long time about a Lite variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Cheaper Samsung folding smartphones
This Lite version would take over the design of the Fold, but have slightly less powerful hardware. Think of a slightly slower processor, less working and storage memory and less good cameras. Samsung, for example, would like to keep the price down and release the Lite variant as a cheaper folding phone.
It is not yet clear how expensive the device would be. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 costs almost 2000 euros. The Galaxy Z Flip is cheaper. It appeared for 1500 euros, but a separate Z Flip is now for sale for about 900 euros.
