Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 leaker just tipped welcome price drop
We now have an idea of the possible cost of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, thanks to leaks from a Twitter user Revegnus.
Although they clarify in the second tweet that this is only “initial plan” which could still change, Revegnus claims that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will see a “slight reduction in price,” while the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will remain the same price as its predecessor.
Samsung would be very wise to lower the price of its foldable, even if only between $100 and $200. For the first time, the Galaxy Z Fold series has a competitor in the US market in the form of the Google Pixel Fold, which sells for $1,799 similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. A lower cut for the newcomer would help users interested in a foldable to buy to draw. Samsung.
The current plan for the pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Z5 series is as follows: The price of the Z Flip 5 will be kept at the same level as its predecessor. The Z Fold 5 will see a slight reduction in price compared to its predecessor.June 16, 2023
Lowering the base price would also help offset a slight upgrade to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 compared to last year. The biggest rumored changes are updated camera sensors (but no change in size or resolution), and a lighter and dust-proof hinge that will reduce the internal display height and fold the phone without leaving a gap in the middle . These seem like a good upgrade, but it would probably be hard to sell the Z Fold 5 on these alone.
Galaxy Z Flip 5: No price drop but more changes
Now back to the claim of no price cut for the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is already pretty cheap for a foldable, retailing for $1,000. Although there is also a new competitor for Samsung in this segment, thanks to the Motorola Razr +, Samsung may be reluctant to lower the price since the rumor mill says that it is making a major upgrade to the external screen of the Z Flip 5.
Various leaks have shown that this new cover display is much more spacious than previous Z Flips. This should increase how many tasks you can do without opening the phone, as we see on the Razr + and other flip covers like the Oppo Find N2 Flip.
A previous rumor claimed that Samsung could price the Galaxy S23 Plus instead of the Galaxy Z Flip 5, since both would otherwise sell for the same price of $1,000. So while you might not be able to get Samsung’s newest Z Flip for cheaper, you might be able to take advantage of it if you decide you want the extra cameras and bigger battery of the Galaxy S23 Plus after the Z Flip 5 come.
Samsung partially announced the next Galaxy Unpacked event at the end of July, which gives us a rough time and location, but no exact date yet. Ideally, we will not only see the launch of Z Fold 5 and Flip 5, but also the Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Watch 6 series.
