Samsung might release a more affordable counterpart to the Z Fold- and Flip-series devices soon. At least, this is what SamMobile has made of some information allegedly gleaned from its sources. It claims to have heard that the OEM is working on a new device with the model number SM-F415.
As this is reasonably close to those of some other recent foldables (the Z Flip 5G is the SM-F707, for example, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold2 is the SM-F916x), the blog believes that it corresponds to an upcoming flexible-display device.
Its sources also claim that the SM-F415 is in line for 64 to 128GB of internal storage. As such specs are rapidly falling into the realms of the unimpressive in 2020, SamMobile hypothesizes that such a foldable might cost less at launch that its pre-existing siblings.
Accordingly, it also now proposes that it may be a clamshell, as it would call for less cutting-edge screen real estate than some budget version of the Z Fold2 at this stage in the form factor's development. Finally, the blog claims that this putative foldable will come in black, green and blue, whereas the recently-launch Z Flip 5G only has Mystic Gray or Bronze options.
