Everything is getting more expensive
Samsung is now expected to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with a higher price tag in Europe according to frequent leakers Sudhanshu. From the numbers he shared, the folding flip phone could retail starting at $1,100 before taxes for the 128GB base model. This is an increase of about $50 considering the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G was launched for around $999 last year.
As for other variants, the 256GB model could be priced at $1,200, the new 512GB storage option is said to cost $1,350. According to the leak, the 256GB storage option would see a bigger price increase as it would be around $100 more expensive compared to last year’s model. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 was only available in two storage options, thus, the addition of the 512GB would be a welcome addition.
The leaker did not mention if there is again a more expensive Bespoke edition. However, it is safe to say that Samsung could eventually introduce a unique Galaxy Z Flip 4 variant as the brand has been busy skinning most of its smart home devices including some appliances earlier this year.
Pricing of Galaxy Z Flip 4 in other regions
There is no word if the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and upcoming Samsung devices will also get a price hike in other regions or countries such as the US. But considering the recent inflation we’re facing, there could be a reason for the South Korean giant to adjust the pricing for its lineup accordingly.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 will become official along the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Watch 5and Galaxy Buds Pro 2 next month. Both smartphones are powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset with the Z Flip 4 expected to boast a larger battery capacity, 25W fast charging, and a dual camera.
