With a price of 1,900 euros, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is a very expensive mobile phone for many. A cheaper version would allow more users to consider getting a foldable



Folding mobile phones are no longer just an experiment, they have become a key piece for many manufacturers. One of these is Samsung, which every year presents a new generation of its two folding devices, the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold. The latter, The largest model is also the most expensive.but in the next generation of Samsung folding devices a more accessible model could arrive.

This is stated in a report from the South Korean media The Elecand the arrival of a cheaper version of the Galaxy Z Fold should not surprise us: the Fold is Samsung’s most expensive mobile, with a base price of 1,900 euros, which makes it a fairly expensive product for many in a market with more and more alternatives, especially in China.

2024 could be the year we see a Galaxy Z Fold FE

China could be one of the big drivers of the arrival of this cheaper Galaxy Z Fold. After all, sales of foldable phones have skyrocketed in China. In fact, have grown more than 90% between the third quarter of 2022 and the third quarter of 2023.

Samsung is a pioneer company in the world of mobile phones with folding screens, but even so it has been moved to third place among the manufacturers that sell the most foldable screens in China, being surpassed by Huawei and OPPO in that territory, one that already has proven to be very important for the mobile market of all typesand not just the folding ones.

A cheaper Galaxy Z Fold doesn’t mean it will be a mid-range model. In the past Samsung has already denied who are working on a Fold with mid-range hardware. However, it is not unreasonable to think that what we would see, if the information published by The Elec is confirmed, would be a Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE, a model with more limited specifications compared to the new generation.

A cheaper Galaxy Z Fold does not mean that it will be a mid-range mobile.

This is what Samsung usually does in the Galaxy S Fan Edition version, or “FE”. For example, the Galaxy S23 FE has the processor of the Galaxy S22 Ultra (Exynos 2200) instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 of the Galaxy S23 Ultrain addition to other differences such as a lower camera system. A Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE could follow the same trend: use the SoC of the Z Fold 5, while the standard Z Fold 6 has the latest generation chip, among other possible differences.

Of course, since this is unofficial information, we cannot be certain that Samsung will launch a cheaper Fold this year, but if it does, the reason would be to “increase the penetration of foldable phones in the smartphone market,” according to the report, and what better way to do it than to launch a foldable that offers a similar experience to the most premium model, for a lower price.
