The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 was launched in India at a price of Rs 1,49,999, while the Galaxy Z Flip 3 was launched at Rs 84,999 onwards, a drastic price-cut from previous generation Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold.
This year, however, Samsung is said to hike the prices. Last year’s pricing made a lot of people across the world adapt to foldable smartphones, especially the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which came with the most compact smartphone form factor one can get today.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are said to come with several improvements over their predecessors. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is said to come with a thinner design and an improved camera, while the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is said to come with an improved battery life.
