Given the amount of time and effort required for making a foldable smartphone, it comes as no surprise that they are prohibitively expensive. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, for example, came with an eye-watering US$2,000 price tag. However, a new report from Sammobile suggests that its successor, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, could be a lot more affordable.

Sources familiar with the matter reached out to the publication and stated that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 would be 20% cheaper than its predecessor. If the said information is accurate, we can expect the smartphone to retail for around US$1,600. That is within spitting distance of what the maxed-out Galaxy S21 Ultra sold for upon launch. Furthermore, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is slated to debut some never-before-seen tech on a Samsung smartphone, such as an under-display camera and UI optimized for split-screen devices.

Those with tighter purse strings will be pleased to know that Samsung's second foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip 3, could also receive the said price cut. Therefore, one should be able to buy it for as low as US$1,200, as opposed to the Galaxy Z Fold 2's US$1,400 price tag. This sits in line with a report from earlier, which prophesized that the foldable would cost around US$1,000. Thus, it could finally put foldable smartphones with the grasp of many users, especially Samsung enthusiasts looking for an upgrade.
