It is said that Samsung is raising the price of the Galaxy Z Flip 4.
If you feel like everything is getting more expensive, you might not be surprised by how much Samsung’s next foldable smartphone will cost. People thought that the company might cut prices even more, but that might not happen.
But if a new leak is true, it’s possible that the new foldable will be more expensive. At most, the price increase would be small, but it could take away a big psychological advantage that helped the Galaxy Z Flip 3 do well.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 might cost more than the one before it.
A leaker says that the 128GB version of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will start at 1080 euros in Europe. The one with 256GB of storage will cost 1,160 euros, while the new one with 512GB of storage will cost 1,280 euros.
Even though it’s small, it’s still an increase. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 with 128GB of storage starts at 1049 euros. This means that the price of its replacement will go up by 31 euros. We can’t compare the price of the 512GB Galaxy Z Flip 4 to the price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3, because the Galaxy Z Flip 3 didn’t come with that much storage.
It’s not clear if this small price increase is just for Europe or if Samsung will also raise the price of the new foldable phone in other places. It would be interesting to see if the Galaxy Z Flip 4 loses its $999 price tag in the United States.
Since August of last year, Samsung has sold more than 10 million Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 phones. Price cuts were a big reason for this. Many people would have thought that Samsung would keep lowering prices to boost sales. This time around, maybe not.
It’s important to note that these aren’t the only upcoming Samsung devices that are expected to cost more than the ones they’re replacing. A leak from before showed that the Galaxy Watch 5 will also cost more than the Galaxy Watch 4. We live in a world like that now.
