Name & Pricing of Samsung’s Upcoming Foldable Phone
According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap News, sources mention that the phone will be called Samsung Galaxy F. This “leak” further cements that rumor.
Samsung Galaxy F will be launched a month after the phone maker announces the Galaxy S10 in February. The Galaxy S10 itself is rumored to be 5G-enabled.
Yonhap News mentions that the Galaxy F will come at an astoundingly high price of $1,770. But it was quick to say that Samsung hasn’t finalized a price for it yet. Still, you should expect it to cost $1,500 or above, considering that the company’s Note series costs around $1,000 at launch.
