Samsung may have popularized the foldable phone segment, but these devices are often more expensive than the most expensive flagships. However, the South Korean giant seems to be shifting its strategy, with multiple rumors hinting at a more affordable fold phone.

With the company expected to announce the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 sometime later this year, a new report from the South Korean publication TimeJournal suggests that we may also see an affordable version of the Fold 6. If true, Samsung might see a huge boost in sales of foldable phones, a segment it has dominated for years.

In the last few years, Samsung has denied that it is working on a cheaper Fold variant, but several leaks and rumors have hinted that the phone maker is considering bringing a cheaper fold model in 2024.

Samsung may have popularized the foldable phone segment, but these devices are often more expensive than the most expensive flagships. However, the South Korean giant seems to be shifting its strategy, with multiple rumors hinting at a more affordable fold phone.

With the company expected to announce the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 sometime later this year, a new unverified report from the South Korean publication TimeJournal suggests that we may also see an affordable version of the Fold 6. If true, Samsung might see a huge boost in sales of foldable phones, a segment that has been dominating for years now.

In the last few years, Samsung has denied that it is working on a cheaper Fold variant, but several leaks and rumors have hinted that the phone maker is considering bringing a cheaper Fold model in 2024. The report by SisaJournal also suggests that the cheaper Fold variant may be priced somewhere around $800 (approx. Rs 66,500) which is less than half the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (review), which starts from Rs 1,54,999.

On the hardware front, Samsung is expected to cut down on specs to bring the price down. The publication suggests that the cheaper Fold phone won’t be powered by a top-of-the-line chipset and that the phone maker may also opt for a cheaper display and battery.

However, one interesting thing to note here is that the affordable Galaxy Z Fold might feature the same camera setup as the normal Galaxy Z Fold 6. Rumors also have it that the phone may not support the S-Pen, which requires a digitizer to work. According to a recent post on X/Twitter by the known tipster RevegnusSamsung might start mass production of components for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Flip 6 in early May, but Samsung might introduce the cheaper Fold 6 between September and October.
