Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 price and Review: Samsung has set August 10 as the date for its second Unpacked 2022 event. We may expect to hear about a slew of intriguing new hardware announcements, including the fourth generation of foldables. The Korean phone manufacturer isn’t being shy either, literally shouting from the rooftops that we should be thrilled for the forthcoming Galaxy Z smartphones.
The event on August 10 will expose all we need to know about the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. For a long time, rumours concerning both phones have circulated, focusing on specifications and Samsung’s prospective plans. There’s a lot of speculation about what’s next, from eliminating the Z moniker entirely to maybe cutting pricing.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 price
In fact, I’d like to discuss cost, specifically the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s. Last year, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 was released at an eye-watering $1,799 starting price. Even though it was $200 cheaper than the pricing of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, that massive figure aroused a lot of eyebrows. New technology is expensive, both in terms of hardware and R&D, but $1,799 for a phone is a lot to ask. Many individuals are put off by $1,000
According to one recent report, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could include 128GB of storage. This had caused many people, including ourselves, to think that a price decline would occur this generation. Remember that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost $1,999, while the Galaxy Z Fold 4 costs $200 less. Could the Galaxy Z Fold 4 drop another $200, maybe with less basic storage? (The Galaxy Z Fold 3 comes in 256GB and 512GB capacities; there is no 128GB model.) If this is the case, $1,599 is still a significant fee for a phone, no matter how cool or new it is, but the Fold’s price would be a step in the right direction.
But my question is whether Samsung will simply save $200 by halving the base capacity, or if this reported 128GB variant would save more more. Imagine if the 128GB Galaxy Z Fold 4 started at $1,499 and the 256GB starts at $1,599 to maintain the same $200 price decrease generation over generation with the same storage.
The 10th of August isn’t far away, so we’ll see if my wild guess pays off. I believe that if the price of the Fold continues to fall, more people will adopt it — just look at the success of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 when it debuted at $999.
