Last month, it was reported that Samsung is talking with the South Korean network carriers to launch its next-generation foldable screen smartphones in August this year. It is expected that the company will launch two different types of foldables this summer.
Meanwhile, a new report has appeared online that talks about the pricing of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. Recently, our folks over at SamMobile sources revealed that Samsung’s next foldable phones could be around 20% affordable than the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Flip.
However, the company launched the Galaxy Z Flip in February last year with a price tag of $1,380. Later on, it had introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in September that costs $1,999. It means, Samsung fans will be getting around a $400 price cut on the high-end foldable phone.
Apart from this, reports revealed that the company has begun the mass production of the external elements of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and it could be introduced somewhere in August this year, featuring an invisible selfie camera, S Pen support, One UI 3.5 version, and much more.
On the other hand, a tipster exposed that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could come with a 16MP under-display camera sensor – IMXx71, supplied by Sony. However, the under-display camera tech is still under development as the invisible selfie camera is not able to present images as well as the traditional punch hole camera.
