Samsung Galazy Z Flip

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 are expected to go official at the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. Since their predecessors were already quite expensive, one would expect the upgraded models to come at a premium. But as per a new report from Korea-based ET News, the two upcoming Samsung foldable phones will cost the same as their first-gen counterparts.

The report claims that the price of Galaxy Z Fold 2 has temporarily been locked at $1,990 in the company’s home market. As for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Korean electronics giant has reportedly set the store price of its next clamshell foldable phone at $1,370, which is roughly at the same price point as the first-gen 4G-only Galaxy Z Flip.

As for the upgrades, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will borrow its camera hardware from the Galaxy Note 20 series, and as per a leaked render, the cover display will be larger with noticeably slimmer bezels. Talking about the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, it will reportedly come equipped with the new Snapdragon 865+ SoC and might flaunt a new bronze gold finish.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
