Another leak points to cheaper price for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
- Another leaker has alleged that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will receive a price cut over last year’s model.
- The leak suggests the new foldable will retail for $1,249.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 in the next few weeks or so, and we’ve already heard one report of cheaper pricing for both models. Now, a regular leaker has revealed an apparent price for the clamshell foldable.
Twitter tipster FrontTron has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have a recommended price of $1,249. This is supposedly for the 8GB/256GB variant, which could be the sole RAM/storage option if the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is anything to go on. In any event, this price would be slightly cheaper than the predecessor’s $1,450 price tag. Check out the screenshot of the tweet below.
The leaker does caution us to take this information with a pinch of salt, but a cheaper price would be roughly in line with a SamMobile report last month. The website claimed that the Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 could be “up to 20% cheaper” than their predecessors. So we could be looking at a ~13% price drop from the Z Flip 5G rather than a 20% decrease if the new leak is accurate.
In any event, leaks and regulatory filings give us a good idea of what to expect from the new clamshell foldable. Leaked renders show a two-tone design with a larger external screen and dual rear cameras. Meanwhile, an FCC filing has confirmed a Qualcomm chipset, wireless charging (and 9W reverse wireless charging), and potentially MST support.
