During this year, foldable smartphones have become more “normal”, although not as many models have been launched on the market as such, they are no longer seen as products taken directly from Scy-Fi films. However, despite the many rumors, we still haven’t seen a foldable smartphone that is really affordable.
It is true that the sales figures for some models ended up exceeding expectations, even with extremely high prices. Therefore, it is easy to speculate that if a model with a considerably lower price is launched, its success will reach numbers never seen before in this segment.
After several rumors point to the possible launch of a Galaxy Z Fold Lite, it seems that Samsung has decided to abandon this project. Information comes through Ross Young, founder of DSCC and regular leaker information about foldable smartphones.
Young recently revealed that he had stopped hearing about the Galaxy Z Fold Lite, indicating that the manufacturer may have abandoned the project. In turn, he confirmed that there is now talk of developing a Lite version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Lite may be the brand’s best bet over the past few years
There is still no unanimous opinion as to which is the perfect design for foldable smartphones. However, there are many who advocate the “flip” or “shell” approach, making smartphones much more practical. On the other hand, other users prefer the versatility of having a tablet-sized screen for multimedia consumption.
Regardless of which approach will be ideal for this segment, with regard to a cheaper model, there is no doubt that the Flip model will be the most suitable.
For a Lite version to achieve the desired success, it must offer the lowest possible price. So it makes perfect sense to bet on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Lite, as it has a considerably smaller screen, automatically reducing your production cost.
In addition, this cut in their cost also allows them to invest in the implementation of a layer of ultra-thin glass (UTG), instead of the controversial plastic present in the original Galaxy Z Fold.
