Officially, Samsung Unpacked will be on August 11, and we’re expecting a lot of devices to be unveiled including the eagerly-awaited Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. Now, a new leak has given us a fascinating list of info we haven’t heard before: what each device will supposedly cost.
Redditor u/FragmentedChicken posted a list of the prices they found on LambdaTek for a few supposed Samsung products that are expected to launch at the event on August 11. Obviously, this leak may not be accurate – either because the listings could be faulty or simply out of date, as Samsung could tweak prices in the weeks left until Unpacked.
First is the most eagerly-awaited device, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, which the LambdaTek listings suggest will be priced at €1673.21 (around $1,970 / £1,439 / AU$2,680) for 256GB of storage and €1777.47 (around $2,095 / £1,529 / AU$2,849) for 512GB of storage. It will supposedly come in phantom black, phantom silver, and phantom green colors.
This price would be around what the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost when it launched ($1,999 / £1,799 / AU$2,999), though we had heard rumors that it would be cheaper. One thing to keep in mind – for this and all Samsung devices – is that the company tends to round off its prices to a nice, clean number, so we’d expect the final price tags to get nudged to the nearest 50 or 100 denomination in all currencies.
The clamshell foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3’s price will supposedly start at €975.04 (around $1,150 / £839 / AU$1,560) for 128GB of storage and cost €1025.95 (around $1,210 / £880 / AU$1,645) for 256GB storage. It will have a more varied color palette, coming in black, white, light pink, dark blue, grey, lavender, cream, and green, according to this leak.
Those prices are far below the original Samsung Galaxy Z Flip ($1,380 / £1,300 AU$1,800), and even the slightly costlier Z Flip 5G ($1,449 / £1,399 / AU$2,599), so we’re eager to see if the Z Flip 3 could have a price tag closer to that of a flagship phone – which could conceivably increase its adoption.
