- Samsung will reportedly cut the price of Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 by up to 20%.
- This could result in a ~$400 price cut in the Z Fold 3 as compared to the Z Fold 2.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 3 clamshell foldable and Galaxy Z Fold 3 later this year, and conventional wisdom suggests we may not see a huge price difference compared to the expensive Z Flip and Z Fold 2. needed.
However, Sammobile Now reports that the new foldables could be “up to 20% cheaper” than the previous model. The outlet did not cite a source for the claim, but it generally has a good track record when it comes to Samsung-related leaks.
Still, the Galaxy Z Flip launched at $1,380 and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 had a starting price of $2,000. So the 20% cheaper price tag translates to pricing of ~$1,100 for the Z Flip 3 and ~$1,600 for the Z Fold 3.

If this news is confirmed then it would be a huge price drop for Samsung’s foldable and foldable in general. It will also go towards making foldable phones more popular, though we expect even cheaper foldable phones from Samsung to really deliver mainstream popularity.

In the case of the former, we have a bigger external display, dual rear cameras and Gorilla Glass Victus on the outside.
