Galaxy Z Flip price range narrowed down by new report from local media

The Galaxy Z Flip is expected to hit the shelves for a price of around $850, and while we don’t have an exact figure for you, a recent rumor has attempted to narrow the price range for the device. According to South Korean publication iNews24, the Galaxy Z Flip will launch in South Korea along with a price tag of anywhere between 1 million and 1.5 million won; Or the rough equivalent of $862-$1,293 at today’s conversion rate.

The same publication mentions that the Galaxy Z Flip will only be launched in LTE flavor. As we already know, Samsung’s upcoming clamshell smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset. This strategy of not fitting the device with the latest and greatest components is what will keep the phone’s launch price in the $862-$1,293 range.

New smartphone buysers will have to decide what they care about the most

The Galaxy Z Flip should be unveiled alongside the Galaxy S20 series. Samsung fans looking to buy a new device will have an interesting choice on their hands. They can either go for the true and tested candy bar form factor and benefit from newer hardware components and additional features brought forth by the Galaxy 20 lineup, or they can pay roughly the same price for lesser specs and a more striking clamshell design enabled by foldable display technology.

It’s going to be interesting to see how far the scales will tip in either direction, and how many prospective buyers will be willing to give up on some technical advantages in favor of a striking new design that truly stands out in today’s monotonous smartphone market.
