Less than a week to go until Samsung’s big foldable device launch event, where the Korean company will showcase its brand new flagship phones and some new wearables. But there is no shortage of rumors about these gadgets, as we are still receiving a consistent wave of leaks and reports. The latest comes from France, revealing the alleged price for the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
The bad news is that some of these gadgets may be more expensive than you expected. The good news is that the price may not change much from last year, especially for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 models.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 price continues to leak
We have already seen several reports detailing the pricing of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4. They covered the European Union and Korea and painted a similar picture.
The price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 may be similar to that of the Fold 3 in those regions. This means that Samsung will not raise prices for its most expensive foldable phone in some of its major markets. Therefore, the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could remain at $ 1,799 in the US.
However, these rumors indicated that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 may cost more than the Flip 3. The leaks from Europe and Korea painted the same picture, teasing a price increase of less than $ 50 for the cheaper Flip 4. If Samsung plans to raise the Flip 4 slightly across all of its markets, the price in the US could exceed $ 1,000 before tax.
None of this is official, though. And while Samsung can’t keep any secrets about its Galaxy flagship phones, we won’t have any confirmations for these prices until next week.
The new escape
French popularizer @OnLeaks published a price list for most of Samsung’s upcoming gadgets. This includes Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Here’s what he learned about France / EU pricing for these devices
Galaxy Z Fold 4
- 256GB: € 1,799 ($ 1,835)
- 512GB: € 1,919 ($ 1,957)
Galaxy Z Flip 4
- 128GB: € 1,109 ($ 1,131)
- 256GB: € 1,169 ($ 1,192)
Galaxy Watch 5 40 mm
- Bluetooth: € 299 ($ 305)
- 4G: € 349 ($ 356)
Galaxy Watch 5 44 mm
- Bluetooth: € 329 ($ 336)
- 4G: € 379 ($ 387)
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro 45 mm
- Bluetooth: € 469 ($ 478)
- 4G: € 499 ($ 509)
As always with EU prices, we will emphasize two things. First, EU prices for gadgets like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 tend to be uniform, although there may be some small differences. Second, they include sales tax. Therefore, the above conversions do not necessarily reflect the pricing structure in the US for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the other gadgets.
If the above figures are accurate, the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will match the Fold 3. The Flip 4 will be slightly more expensive than the € 1,049 ($ 1,070) Flip 3. Don’t forget that you can still save up to $ 200 on Fold 4 and Flip 4 before the pre-order offers even begin. All you have to do is register your interest.
