Samsung already has two foldable smartphones on the market, the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip. Both are available in Brazil for R $ 12,999 and R $ 8,999, respectively. Now, according to information published by the SamMobile website, Samsung’s next foldable smartphone will be sold at a lower price.
Without going into too much detail, SamMobile reports having received “some information about the Galaxy Fold 2”, suggesting that it will be cheaper than the first generation. Remember that ‘Galaxy Fold 2’ is not a name officially confirmed by Samsung.
The Galaxy Fold is sold in a single version with 512 GB of storage (UFS 3.0), which of course is an expensive component. For the next model, the website suggests that there will be “a model with 256 GB of storage at a lower price”.
According to the website, there are two models of the Galaxy Fold: ‘SM-F916’ with 256 GB of storage, and ‘SM-F91x’ with 512 GB. The idea of cutting storage in half may have come up with the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip, which has 256 GB of internal space.
In the United States, the original price of the Fold is $ 1,980, and that of the Z Flip is $ 1,400. The alleged Galaxy Fold 2 does not have a confirmed release date, but rumors say it is expected to be announced in mid-August with the Galaxy Note line.
Rumors still cite that the Galaxy Fold 2 should have an external screen bigger than the current Fold (4.6 inches), and that when folded it will have 7.7 inches. The current Fold, for comparison, has 7.3 “on the main screen.
This movement could happen with the adoption of an Infinity-O screen to adjust the front camera, as in the Galaxy S20, in place of a notch as it was done in the first version.
Other rumors still mention that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have support for the S Pen and cameras similar to the Galaxy S20 +.
