While Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be the newest in folding phones when it launches, it may be more reasonably priced than you think.
According to Twitter Tech Account FrontTronSamsung’s new flip phone will have a base price between $ 999 and $ 1,099, with a maximum price of $ 1,199. That’s basically $ 300 cheaper than that Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and it could lead to far more foldable sales once Galaxy Z Flip 3 launches.
The current Galaxy Z Flip 5G has an MSRP of $ 1,449. Even with the maximum configuration, the Z Flip 3 costs $ 150 less. With the new price, it also equates to the most expensive conventional phones from Samsung, namely $ 1,999 Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultraand also the newer reduced price for the Z Flip 5G.
Tron’s tweet also indicates the date of August 3rd, a date that fits the rumored launch window for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and late 2021 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. It’s the same month that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G launched in 2020, but a month before that Galaxy Z Fold 2 It is assumed that a phone with the Z Flip 3 booting next to it is starting up. However, Samsung launched its phones earlier than normal this year (for example the Samsung Galaxy S21 The series came out in January rather than the usual March), and the August date fits in with this accelerated launch calendar.
FrontTron is not yet a well-established name for leaks, so it is possible that the leak may not be as reliable as we hope it will be. However, their claims seem to be at least in line with what we already know, which is what encourages the news for their veracity.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 shares the same clamshell structure as the previous model, but with a few key differences as the name “2” is skipped, apparently to stay in line with the Galaxy Z Fold series.
Given the previous leaks, the outer notification display and dual cameras have a new design that brings them together in a large block of glass, with the display being significantly larger than the 1.1-inch screen on the original model. It can also be reinforced with Samsung’s newly patented “.Armor frame“Technology to fix foldable phones’ biggest weaknesses – their durability.
Expect a new 5G capable chipset like that in the Z Flip 3 Snapdragon 888as well as 128 GB and 256 GB storage options. The interior display has not been rumored yet, but we can probably expect a similar one to the 6.7-inch display with a central punch-hole selfie camera found on the original model.
