Good news for those who want to switch to a foldable smartphone: the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 would be marketed even less than their predecessors. In addition, Samsung would plan to double production compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3, which would explain this price drop.
In their early days, foldable smartphones were undeniably niche products. Not for their technical specificities, but more for their price, which is not really affordable for the general public. Well aware of this issue, Samsung has redoubled its efforts to bring the figures down to a more acceptable level. Thus, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 caused a stir last year by significantly lowering the price compared to its predecessors. And according to recent information, the manufacturer does not intend to stop there.
Indeed, Samsung would once again plan to lower the prices on its Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4. The information comes to us from analyst Ross Young, who plans a “very solid launch” for foldable smartphones. If the latter does not specify how Samsung intends to go about offering this reduction, another clue could explain this desire. Thus, production would have more than doubled for the month of July, compared to the figures reached in 2021 for the Z Fold 3 and Flip 3.

Samsung expects real success for its Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4
In other words, if Samsung intends to sell its future foldable smartphones cheaper, it also intends to sell more. By lowering the prices, the manufacturer probably wants to address a wider audience and impose its Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 as real benchmarks in the folding sector. Even if it means offering a third, more premium-oriented version? This remains to be verified.
Anyway, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is starting to get people talking. Another clue that could lead to lower prices, the smartphone will be thinner than the previous one and will sacrifice the S-Pen. Less expensive therefore, but also more resistant. In addition to improving the photo part, Samsung would have greatly optimized the durability of the phone.
