Samsung, a barometer of the foldable smartphone market, wants to bring this new format to a greater number of users. To this end, it is preparing to launch a new model that will fit into the mid-range segment, possibly known as the Galaxy Z Flip SE.
This is not the first time the subject has been addressed, however, a new report from TrendForce offers us more details. According to this document, the most affordable foldable from the South Korean company will be presented in 2024.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 SE could be the brand’s most affordable foldable
Samsung’s plans for this new line of foldable devices are not yet clear. One of the main doubts has to do with the format that the company will select, although the main bets fall on the shell-shaped models.
In fact, the model that the company is expected to debut in 2024 could be known as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 SE. As the name suggests, it will be a humbler version of its clamshell foldable for a wider audience.
To achieve a more affordable price, the South Korean technology company will cut some details and specifications of the product. We therefore expect a device with some compromises both in its specifications and in its construction quality.
Still, it will be an important milestone for the foldable device market. When its rationale still raises some doubts, a more accessible model could entice more users to experience the virtues of this equipment.
Samsung’s mid-range foldable could cost €650
The price will effectively be a major factor in the success or failure of the eventual Galaxy Z Flip 6 SE on the market. And regarding this topic, we already have a prediction from leaker Revegnus.
In one of his latest publications on the social network X, this source states that Samsung’s mid-range foldable will arrive in Europe for €650. A really tempting price for an irreverent format.
Going back to the TrendForce report, this source also points out that Huawei is also preparing to launch a foldable with a more competitive price. In fact, 2024 promises to be the year in which foldables begin to reach the masses.
