European retailers leaked the retail prices of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. To our disappointment, the numbers don’t confirm the previous rumors which stated that Samsung was going to slash the prices this year. In fact, they’re a bit more expensive than their predecessors.
In our Galaxy Z Fold 3 overview, we told you Samsung would likely sell the foldable phone for less money than its predecessor. We were expecting a price tag of £1,440/€1667 for this model but according to LamdaTek, we should rbace ourselves for a €2,038.63 price with VAT or £1,765. As for the 512GB model, that would go for €2,165/£1,869.
To get a clearer idea of what that means, think about this: the Galaxy Z Fold 2 – the 256GB version – is €1,600 on Samsung’s website right now.
The Z Flip 3 is not that overpriced. It’s true the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will likely sell for more than $1000 but you won’t feel the difference as much as in the case of Z Fold 3.
The retailer listing pointed to a Galaxy Z Flip3 of 128 GB at €1,187.98 with VAT or £1,026 and the 256 GB model at €1,250/£1,079. Now, the Z Flip 5G with 256Gb storage sells for €1,350.
Still, it seems that in Europe, both phones are gonna be much more expensive than in South Korea.
