Despite the lack of competition, foldable smartphones are already alive and kicking. So far, Samsung has the segment under its belt thanks to the successful Galaxy Z Flip series and the recently debuted Galaxy Z Fold2. With many reports pointing to the arrival of new players in this segment, and the growing trend of rollable displays, Samsung does not want to leave space for its competitors. Hence, it will bring the next big “foldable” thin sooner in 2021. While the Galaxy Z Fold2 was revealed in later August, the company will bring the Galaxy Z Fold3 in June 2021. However, this info is stated as info from an executive and not from the company itself. So we’re not sure about it anymore. Meanwhile, a new report suggests that the company will bring the next-gen for the exact same price as the Z Fold2.
According to a report from SamMobile, a Twitter user @MauriQHD hints that the price of the Galaxy Z Fold3 will be the same as the Z Fold2. Now, he just tweeted “Z Fold2, same price at the moment”. He hasn’t mentioned it explicitly, but we’re sure he mentioned the phone’s predecessor, current model, Z Fold2.

The Galaxy Z Fold2 launched at a cheaper price stage in India compared to the UK and China. In the sub-continent, the phone costs $2,039. It offers a set of good specifications and its major competitor, the Motorola Razr can’t be compared to it. As aforementioned, Samsung remains the absolute leader of the market. So far, the Galaxy Z Flip is the best-selling foldable smartphone of 2020. The clamshell-like smartphone has a modern design that offers a real smartphone feeling. Moreover, it costs way less than its Fold siblings (Around $1,500).
Galaxy Z Fold3 is bringing a lot of improvements
The company may expand its portfolio in the next year with the arrival of a new, cheaper, Lite variant. This will only help the company to boost its sales in this particular segment. Moreover, the Galaxy Z Fold3 is gearing up to be a solid contender in the market. After all, Samsung is bringing significant improvements like an Under-display camera, improved UTG glass with an AES digitizer, S-Pen support, and more. Of course, we should digest these rumors with a pinch or two of salt. After all, nothing is confirmed or set in stone.
