If the Samsung Galaxy Fold is a good phone that is quite impressive in its technology, its big brake on the purchase is obviously its price. What could change… Explanations.
With a price of 1799 euros, the least we can say is that the current Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 is far from affordable. One could even say that it is unaffordable for most consumers. For this reason, the Korean manufacturer would be designing a more affordable version.
Less than 800 euros for a Galaxy Fold?
It’s through the website ETNEWS that we can hear the news. According to the site’s source, Samsung is developing an “entry-level” foldable smartphone with the appropriate quotes because all the same with an estimated price of 1,000,000 won (Korean currency) which corresponds to 737 euros. You can bet on a good 800 euros in Europe.
Samsung will have to make concessions
It remains once again a source report, but to achieve this result, Samsung would be ready to remove premium functions (without giving a name) to keep what makes the charm of the phone, namely a folding screen. We could for example imagine a less expensive processor and a less efficient camera. There are plenty of possibilities to lower the price of this type of product.
The launch of this new folding smartphone Made in Samsung is scheduled for 2024. All this obviously remains to be taken with a grain of salt.
