Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series flagship smart machine at its August 5 launch, while the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Fold 2 folding-screen new machines are also expected to be unveiled. We’ve known a lot about the features and specifications of the new Samsung folding screen, but today’s new report says the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Fold 2 will continue the pricing strategy of previous models.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is priced at 2.4 million won (about $1990 / $1.39 million), while the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is 1.65 million won (about $1,370 / 9586 RMB), according to Korean media ETNews.
After developing an internal pricing strategy, the two models will soon finalize more details with telecom operator partners. However, compared to the previous Galaxy Fold model, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will not be bundled with the new True Wireless Headset.
Clearly, Samsung wants to reduce the cost of starting with consumers to promote the popularity of such devices. Unfortunately, the cost of a folding screen smart machine is difficult to come down in a short time due to the use of advanced manufacturing processes and expensive parts such as UTG ultra-thin glass.
Samsung has reportedly set a sales target of 3 million plus for the ultra-high-end Galaxy Z Fold 2 (by the end of 2020) before releasing a relatively affordable model by 2021.
Samsung may also launch the Galaxy Z Fold 2 a month after the Galaxy Note 20, but there will still be an initial increase in the South Korean market.
Finally, it is said to be in talks with brands such as Thom Browne to launch a special version of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, but it has not yet been finalized.
