As per reports, Samsung is set to unveil its much-awaited foldable smartphone – Galaxy Fold – on September 6 at IFA 2019. In the meanwhile, the South Korean tech giant is reportedly also working on a cheaper Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone.
The first-generation Galaxy Fold carries a heavy price tag of $2,000 (approximately Rs 144,400). This is not an amount most people are willing to pay, and hence is not accessible to a larger segment of the population. According to SamMobile, this upcoming cheaper Galaxy Fold will cost around $1,000 (approximately Rs 72,200).
The report claims that Samsung will bring down the price by opting for a cheaper design. It will also cut the internal storage to 256GB from 512GB. Other details of this rumored cheap Samsung Galaxy Fold are still under wraps for now.
