It seems that after a while you will see foldable smartphones in the hands of many people. We are saying this because The Mobile India has claimed in its report that a veteran smartphone maker is working on a very cheap foldable phone. Being economical, it will be accessible to most people. However, most foldable devices available in the Indian market come with a premium price tag – for example, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is even more expensive than the iPhone 13 Pro Max – and this has limited the number of buyers. . The mobile Indian, citing sources, said in its new report that the biggest player in the foldable phone market is working on a relatively affordable version of its foldable device. Let us know what the report says …
Samsung will bring a cheap foldable phone
In fact, market sources have told The Mobile Indian that Korean giant Samsung is actually working on FE variants of both Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Samsung has recently introduced FE (also known as Fan Edition) of some flagship devices in the market. These versions come with specifications and design compromises, but on the other hand, come with a much lower cost than flagships.
Now it looks like even Samsung’s two most talked about foldable devices are going to get FE treatment. This year Samsung has come up with Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold. Fold 3 Rs. 1,49,999, which was much higher than the expected price, but many were surprised by the price of the Flip 3, which is priced at Rs. It started at 84,990, which was lower than expected.
How different is the FE version compared to the original?
Well, these values may come down with the FE version of the device. We have no concrete details on the specifications of any device, but our sources say that both the Flip FE and the Fold FE will come with a dual camera setup with a 48-megapixel main sensor and a 32-megapixel selfie camera. May come.
– Both were planned to come with Exynos processors, but apparently due to a chip crisis, Samsung chose the Snapdragon 870 chips for both phones, one step below the original Snapdragon 888 seen on the flagship.
– A source also says that while the device’s size and design are likely to be the same as the original, some features will be missed in the FE version – The Fold 3 FE may not support the S Pen and our sources say that the Flip 3 FE’s external display Flip 3 will be less versatile.
– In terms of design, both FE foldables are expected to have more funky colors, although they are unlikely to come with dust and water resistance.
When will it be launched, how much will it cost?
Most importantly, this FE version of Flip and Fold will come with a much lower price than the original. Mobile India quoted sources in its report as saying that the Flip FE could be priced around Rs 60,000, but the Fold FE could be really surprising here, with some saying it could be as low as Rs 99,999. No information has been released on their release schedule, with some saying they may arrive in early February and others claiming they are more likely to arrive in June or July.
Of course, we want to reiterate that this is not confirmation or official information, but it would be great if it were true.
