Samsung is preparing to hold its next Unpacked event in late July to unveil foldable phones. No doubt, both are going to be pricey phones, but Samsung may slap a $75 (₩100,000) price reduction on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 this year.
According to rumor, Samsung could reduce the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 price by $75 (₩100,000). The lineup is expected to get unveiled in the fourth week of July this year, while the price reduction probably happening because of application processor costs.
Tipster @Tech_Reve claims that the application processor accounts for about 10-20% of the total cost depending on the product. The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s application processor’s cost was $140, while the typical price for premium APs is usually around $80.
Compared to the first quarter of last year, the South Korean tech giant’s expenditure on APs saw a 20% decline in prices in the same duration this year. This would result in a price cut for both upcoming foldable phones, making them more accessible.
There is a possibility that the launch price of Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5, which will be unveiled at the end of July, will be reduced by about ₩100,000 compared to their predecessors.
As a background for such possible price reduction, one can mention the decrease AP
