After introducing the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Samsung should now also have a Galaxy Fold Lite in the works. The company has already been working on S20 Lite for early 2021 launch, the new Galaxy Fold Lite should also be ready for the market next year, even if the required components have become cheaper.
According to various reports and rumors, a cheap variant of the folding smartphone is planned at a price of around $900. As the flagship models of smartphone vendors have become increasingly expensive in recent years, the lite versions from Samsung have found more and more friends. The Lite versions are slimmed down significantly compared to the regular versions, but they are sold extremely well because they only lower the entry price for many customers to an acceptable level. The idea of a Galaxy Fold Lite sounds correspondingly logical. The fold is only available at a price of over $2000, a fold lite at a price of fewer than $1000 would surely strike more customers than before.
However, Samsung would undoubtedly have to make a lot of compromises with a lite variant in order to lower the price to below $1,000. According to Sammobile, the sparrows in South Korea are now whistling off the roof that Samsung wants to boost sales with a cheap Galaxy Fold Lite. It is currently not clear whether the report is based on real information or is just a “fantasy product”. Sammobile still has some doubts, because there is simply too little information available at the moment.
According to another source, Samsung should not only present the Galaxy Note 20 for the upcoming Unpack event on August 5 but also unveil the Galaxy Fold 2, the Galaxy Fold Lite, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. The Fold Lite is still on shaky feet, according to the rumor mill that Samsung has postponed the introduction to 2021 contrary to previous plans.
