Snapdragon 865 powered Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite or Galaxy Z Flip Lite to launch in 2H20 for US$1,099
The Galaxy Fold 2 may well be joined by at least one more foldable Samsung smartphone in 2H20. According to Max Weinbach of XDA Developers and Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the device will be a "Lite" version of an existing Galaxy foldable.
Possibly called the Galaxy Fold Lite or Galaxy Z Flip Lite, Weinbach claims that the device will have a "mix of 2018/19/20 parts". These will not include the ultra-thin glass (UTG) that the Galaxy Z Flip has, but they do include 256 GB of storage and a Snapdragon 865 chipset. Priced at US$1,099, the device will come in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple.
According to Young, the device may be a way of Samsung to rid itself of excess Galaxy Z Flip inventory. Due to be available internationally, Weinbach added that the device would be 4G only. However, a "Flip 5G is happening" too, so we would not rule out Samsung releasing a Fold 2, a Flip Z 5G and a Lite model later this year.
