For context, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 launched for 2,398,000 WIN, so that’s a significant drop, and the leaked price is around $1,745 / £1,255 / AU$2,330 (using the highest of the two leaked numbers). gets converted into.

It’s a similar story with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, which will reportedly cost between 1,200,000 won and 1,280,000 won, but will apparently be closer to the bottom of those two numbers. A conversion from that number comes to $1,045 / £755 / AU$1,400, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G costs $1,449 / £1,399 / AU$2,599 at launch.
While we take these numbers with a pinch of salt, we’ve heard several times that these foldables will be cheaper than their predecessors, so a lower price tag seems likely.

You may also find some attractive extras for the money, such as @GaryeonHan has tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 could either be thrown away when buying one of these foldables, or could be offered at huge discounts.
We wouldn’t count on it, given that the leaker doesn’t have much of a track record, but it’s not unbelievable, as Samsung often bundles it for free with expensive phones. If it ends, we’d expect these to be limited to pre-orders, and assume the Galaxy Watch 4 will be included with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Buds 2 with the Z Flip 3.
The wait to get all these gadgets should also be almost over, as it is rumored that Samsung will unveil them along with the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE on August 11.
