Galaxy Z Flip goes on sale in Brazil today at a $550 premium
Samsung is launching the Galaxy Z Flip in Brazil today, March 11, and if the device will be as successful as the original Fold was in the country then prospective buyers should prepare to deal with dwindling stocks and more demand than Samsung can cover.
Likewise, the Galaxy Z Flip will hit the shelves in Brazil for a higher-than-usual price of R$8,999 ($1,928), or roughly $550 more than the device costs in most other markets. It’s the same story as with the original Galaxy Fold which sold in Brazil for the rough equivalent of $3,000, while customers in other markets had to pay ‘only’ $2,000.
But if you are a prospective buyer in Brazil and you’re excited about Samsung’s second approach to foldable devices in clamshell flavor then you’re in for a treat. The Galaxy Z Flip is a surprisingly well-balanced device, as you can learn from our recent review, and it really is a bit special in today’s relatively bland mobile landscape.
Samsung Brazil is launching the Galaxy Z Flip in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple. There’s no information regarding the availability of Mirror Gold so the flavor will likely elude the Brazilian market. The black and purple variants are available for purchase today in a total of 12 stores across the cities of São Paulo, Campinas, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, and Rio de Janeiro.
