Samsung Galaxy Fold & Z Flip SeriesSamsung Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung hopped into making foldable smartphones last year with its Galaxy Fold in September 2019. Back then when it was launched, that foldable smartphone had a cost of around 2000$. Since then, a year has passed. In this timeframe, many other manufacturers have tried with their approach to foldable smartphones as well. Samsung has also launched 4-5 foldable devices in a span of 1 year. Precisely 3 foldable if you exclude the variants.
- Samsung Galaxy Fold (4G & 5G Variant)
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (4G & 5G Variant)
- And, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
Though the Galaxy Fold was super expensive at 2000$ (2 lakh INR), the Galaxy Z Flip was a bit cheaper at 1300$. Yes, it was all expected for the Galaxy Fold to be expensive since it was Samsung’s first iteration. Gradually, they reduced the price with upcoming iterations.

Our take on upcoming Samsung Budget Foldable Smartphone
As of yet, there's nothing known about the specifications of the upcoming foldable smartphone from the Korean tech giant. While everyone is touting it as the “Budget” Foldable Smartphone from Samsung, what does it mean? The word budget can also make people expect it a lot cheaper.
Considering the price of the initial Galaxy Fold and Z Flip which was launched later, we expect the so-called Samsung Budget Foldable Smartphone to be launched for 1000$. Well, 1000$ for a smartphone is still a lot expensive. But, for a foldable smartphone from Samsung, it is definitely great.
We don’t really know for what price the newer Samsung’s Budget Smartphone retail. What we can is that, if Samsung wants to create competition they need to price it at or below 1000$. This will create more and more competition among everyone. It is still going to take around a few years for foldable smartphones to actually become in “Budget”. And, that would be the time when the foldable would actually be affordable.
Let us keep our fingers crossed and see what Samsung has to offer for us for a decent price when it comes to foldable smartphones. Well, what do you think about the new Budget Foldable Smartphone from Samsung? What would be its features and specifications? Let us know in the comments below.
