For some time now, rumors have circulated that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will cost more than their respective predecessors. Samsung was forced to raise its prices as a result of the rising cost of raw materials. Another noted tipster has already come up with some pricing information regarding the impending foldable duo. It implies that the hike would be much longer than we had anticipated.

THE GALAXY Z FOLD 4 MIGHT COST ALOT. Samsung will price the Galaxy Z Fold 4 at 1,879 and 1,999 for the 256GB and 512GB storage options, respectively, according to tipster Sudhansu Ambhore. Up to 100 more than the previous year. In the European countries, the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s two storage options debuted with price tags of 1,799 and 1,899, respectively.

This report deviates from a couple earlier ones. Most significantly, Steve H. McFly, alias OnLeaks, asserted that Samsung will maintain the pricing of the 256GB Galaxy Z Fold 4 at 1,799. However, the 512GB model would cost an additional $20. (1,919). It came after a South Korean report that claimed the corporation would be willing to sacrifice some of its profit margin in order to maintain the same pricing or at least a slight increase.

Advertisement However, this is only applicable to the Fold lineup. According to both reports, the Flip series would have a greater increase (up to 70 in Europe). The most recent report, however, now asserts that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 also had a 100 percent increase. According to reports, the new clamshell foldable will cost $1,149 (128GB), $1,199 (256GB), and $1,329 at retail (512GB). Keep in mind that the Galaxy Z Flip 3’s internal capacity was expanded to 256GB.

The latest report also states that Samsung would charge 229 for the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. This sum is consistent with some of the earlier rumors. I guess I’ll just have to wait for the confirmation. Thankfully, the wait would only last a couple of days at this point. On August 10, the Korean company will introduce the latest Galaxy goods. We caution you to use this information sparingly until that time.

THESE PRICE INCREASES COULD harm Samsung’s foldable ambition. Unsurprisingly, the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event from Samsung has become the talk of the tech community recently. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldables will be the main draws at the major launch event on August 10. There has been much discussion regarding the enhancements the new models would make to the company’s foldable product range. There are many topics to discuss based on the numerous leaks that have occurred regarding the devices over the past few months.

Advertisement However, despite all the improvements the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 offer, Samsung’s goal of making foldables popular may not receive a significant boost this year due to the cost. Spending by consumers on cellphones is already decreasing. Therefore, it would be difficult to find enough buyers for a 1,799 phone that isn’t as strong or reliable as the far less expensive Galaxy S22 Ultra, for instance. If the Korean company can double foldable sales this year, that will be a success.
