According to a new report by popular news site, SamMobile, Samsung is planning to unveil a new 256GB variant of the Galaxy Fold with a lower price tag. This appears to be the company’s way of addressing one of the other concerns with the Galaxy Fold – its pricing. For those unaware, purchasing a Galaxy Fold when it breaks cover in September is not going to be cheap. It is estimated that the phone will cost users nearly $2000, which has sparked some credible concerns among prospective buyers.
As for this leak, the main point of contention here is the revelation of the model number SM-F700F, which isn’t on any Samsung device so far. The fact that the current Galaxy Fold bears the model number SM-F900F has given rise to speculation that the company is working on a new variant. Naturally, since Samsung is yet to confirm or deny this, we’re going to take this with a pinch of salt.
It’s unclear if the storage is the only differentiating factor between the two phones. The original Galaxy Fold offers a storage capacity of 512GB, which is pretty spectacular for a mobile device. However, with several issues to address, the company had to go back to the drawing board before preparing for the re-release in September. If you’re a T-Mobile customer, however, you’re out of luck as the carrier has opted out of the relaunch.
