The flagship Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G smartphone has not yet really gone on sale, and the first details about its likely successors have already appeared on the Web.
Samsung is working on three devices in the Galaxy Z Fold line for next year
According to a source with reference to an insider, next year, Samsung will release as many as three models of the Galaxy Z Fold line, and all of them, of course, will receive flexible screens. We are talking about the Galaxy Z Fold Lite, Galaxy Z Fold S and Galaxy Z Fold 3 devices.
There are already some technical details. Thus, the Galaxy Z Fold Lite will receive a colorless polyimide screen, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will use ultra-thin glass. A stylus will also be attached to the flagship of the line. Moreover, the introduction of the stylus in a smartphone with a flexible screen makes this model potentially the most expensive in the Samsung lineup. But the most expensive does not mean the most interesting. The Galaxy Z Fold S, supposedly, will unfold both outward and inward.
The new devices will be released next year and the cost of the base model Galaxy Z Fold Lite will not exceed $1000. While the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will definitely exceed the $2000 mark. As for the veracity of these data, they are still classified as rumors, but the insider who published this data was one of the first to predict the development of the Galaxy Fold 5G last year, so he probably has some sources close to the company.
Samsung’s new foldable phone gets WiFi certification – Galaxy Fold Lite?
South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, already has a couple of foldable phones. However, as one of the pioneers of the foldable screen technology, the company will still release more foldable devices. Recently, a new Samsung phone passed the WiFi Alliance certification, the model is SM-F415F/DS. Unfortunately, the WiFi Alliance listing does not reveal the details of Samsung’s new foldable phone. Nevertheless, the model number indicates that this is a Galaxy foldable smartphone.
For reference, the model number of the first-generation Galaxy Fold is SM-F900. In addition, the model number of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is SM-F700. It appears that Samsung’s foldable phones have model numbers starting with “SM-Fxxx”. The newly certified SM-F415F/DS model is considered a cheap version of Fold because it is part of the F400 series. There are also reports that this phone may be called Galaxy Fold Lite.
