Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G are expensive to say the least. But as part of the company’s efforts to take foldable smartphones, Samsung plans to plan huge price cuts for Fold 3 and Flip 3.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 prices
SamMobile reports that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be up to 20% cheaper than their predecessors, which means users can save up to $ 400 on the most expensive device. Here’s how much the next Galaxy Z folders can cost:
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 – $ 1,599
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 – $ 959
It is worth noting that the leak says that the new collapsible will be ‘up to 20% cheaper’, so the prices listed above may be a little higher. But it is still good news and should make collapsible products much more accessible.
An earlier report suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 could costs under $ 1000 at launch. It seemed a bit sketchy at the time, but this latest price information apparently confirms the previous leak.
It is also worth pointing out that the price of $ 959 for Galaxy Z Flip 3 is based on the Galaxy Z Flip 5G’s current price of $ 1,199. If the 20% discount is applied to the original Galaxy Z Flip price of $ 1,380, you get $ 1104 for the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
It’s still impressive in terms of technology and the fact that it will still be cheaper than Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra, but it’s not as impressive as the potential price below $ 1,000.
The exact retail prices should be revealed as the announcement event approaches. Prices will vary by market, as usual, and Samsung is reportedly planning generous pre-order incentives to entice customers.
What do Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 have?

Samsung’s Fold 2 replacement will retain the same overall design, which means there will be a large folding screen on the inside and a smaller secondary screen on the outside. The biggest differences this time are under the screens.
As for the remaining specifications, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 will lead. A 4,275mAh is also part of the package, and it seems very likely that 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage will be offered as standard.

The smaller and cheaper Galaxy Z Flip 3 is set to build on the foundation of its older siblings. The 6.7-inch screen remains, but this time it will apparently be paired with slimmer frames.
