You might not like the latest pricing details for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldables. The first will cost the same as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in the local market, according to an exclusive report from the Korean newspaper ETNews, while the second will cost somewhat more than its predecessor. The newest study dashes any expectations for a price decrease this year.
The 256GB and 512GB storage versions of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will, according to the revised report , cost KRW 1,998,700 and KRW 2,097,700, respectively, in South Korea. Last year, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 debuted with the same price tags. This year, Samsung apparently thought about slightly boosting the price because the cost of production has gone up due to rising raw material prices and inflation. To offer the phone a better chance of success in the market, the business ultimately opted against it. Any price increase may have an impact on sales because the Fold series is already pricey.
But according to reports, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will still cost more than its predecessor. According to reports, the 256GB model will cost KRW 1,299,000, up KRW 45,000 from the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Since the clamshell foldable is significantly less expensive than the Fold variant, Samsung has room to raise the price this year in order to cover the higher manufacturing costs. Additionally, Flip devices sell more than Fold devices, thus the business also had to consider their profitability.

Price increases for the Galaxy Z FOLD 4 and FLIP 4 will also be seen in other markets. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4’s pricing structure mentioned above is particular to the South Korean market. However, you may anticipate similar prices in other markets as well, such as the US. There have been rumors that Samsung’s foldables for 2022 may be more expensive than the 2021 ones. The possible costs for both models have maybe already been announced by some European stores. Depending on the model and memory combinations, they predict a price increase of 50 to 100.
We wouldn’t be surprised if the global pricing structure for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 leaked in the upcoming days given Samsung’s struggles to stop leaks. On August 10, the business will formally release all of the details on its foldables for 2022. On the same day, the Galaxy Watch 5 series will also be available.
