If the price is more affordable and the equipment is more durable, I believe many users are still willing to try foldable phones. It will still take some time to make foldable mobile phones popular, and as an important driving force of the industry, there have been rumors that Samsung is developing a friendlier foldable mobile phone internally. However, it should be noted that the appearance of this folding phone is closer to the Galaxy Z Flip, rather than the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
First of all, the use of a clamshell design similar to the Galaxy Z Flip can significantly reduce costs. The size of the foldable screen can be smaller, the battery capacity can be smaller, and the camera assembly can be smaller. And in terms of specifications, the machine will not be equipped with a top-level Snapdragon processor but will be equipped with a sub-flagship processor similar to the Snapdragon 765G.
Display Search’s Ross Young said that this friendly foldable device will still use UTG ultra-thin glass for protection. This is the same material that Samsung uses in the latest generation of foldable phones, making them less susceptible to scratches and debris.
However, what is more, interesting is that Samsung’s goal is mass production, since Samsung has now more focus on affordable smartphones, suggesting that this Galaxy Z Flip Lite will be much cheaper than the $1,500 Galaxy Z Flip 5G. However, it is not yet known whether it can drop below $1,000 after listing. More importantly, this price is still too high for ordinary consumers. Even if the Galaxy Z Flip Lite is launched, which is still expensive and novel, how many consumers are willing to buy it?
