Besides the Galaxy Note 20 and Ultra, Samsung also unveiled its latest foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2. However, the price remains a mystery.
Samsung also unveiled its next foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, as well as the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. However, unlike the two new Galaxy Note phones, Samsung is keeping a low profile on some of the important Fold 2 details, including pricing and a firm launch date.
Foldable phones are still a relatively new form of product and they have not been without problems. For example, the original Galaxy Fold phone suffered from a design flaw that ultimately delayed the launch of the device. Less of a technical glitch and more of a barrier to adoption, foldable phones have also proven to be expensive options so far and at the moment there is no suggestion that the cost issue will be resolved with this new Fold phone.
Samsung today announced a number of devices, all of which will be released at different times. For example, the two new Galaxy Note 20 phones will go on general sale starting August 21, with prices starting at $ 999 in the US. While Samsung also used the same Unpacked event to announce the new Galaxy Z Fold 2, the company has not provided any firm information on availability or pricing. As a result, it’s still unclear how much this new foldable phone will cost or when it will go on sale.
More information on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 to come
While it remains to be seen how much the new Galaxy Z Fold 2 will cost or when it will be available for purchase, more information should arrive soon. Several points of sale, including CNET, reported that Samsung is planning to hold another event on September 1, 2020. This event is expected to be more focused on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and therefore pricing and availability information could also be revealed. It’s also possible that pre-orders could also open at or around the same time. In the meantime, Samsung has already launched a page dedicated to the new foldable phone with the possibility for consumers to express their interest.
For reference, the original Galaxy Fold phone cost just under $ 2,000 in the US, which shows how expensive these foldable phones are compared to standard high-end smartphones. Although the company also launched a Galaxy Z Flip device between the two Fold phones, and although it was a cheaper foldable phone than the original Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Flip still cost a little less. of $ 1,400 in the United States. As a result, and although there is currently no firm pricing information, there is no indication that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be any cheaper, when it finally goes on sale.
