Samsung Readies Cheaper Foldable Phone
Samsung is reportedly preparing an affordable counterpart to its premium Galaxy Fold smartphone, with the later tipped to re-release internationally next month after initial technical issues.
The Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s first foldable smartphone and is tipped to launch in Australia for nearly A$3,000.
According to Bloomberg, the launch of Samsung’s affordable foldable phone could be cancelled should the Galaxy Fold not sell well.
The cheaper device will reportedly feature a 6.7-inch display screen which would fold into a “pocketable square.”
Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the handset would closely resemble a traditional phone when open, rather than a large rectangle.
The news comes as Samsung further ramps up its affordable premium phone portfolio, expanding its A Series with a new 5G variant which is confirmed to release in Australia.
