Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Lite may be on the way

Vlad, 19 November 2020

Foldable smartphones may or may not be the future, but one thing's for sure: they're still very expensive at the moment. In the past, we heard Samsung was working on a Galaxy Z Fold Lite that would be cheaper than the Z Fold 2, but now it seems that project may have been shelved.

The information comes from Ross Young, founder of DSCC and frequent purveyor of foldable-related rumors (with a decent track record no less). He says he hasn't heard about the Z Fold Lite in a while, which may indicate it was shelved.

Not all hope is lost for a more affordable foldable, though. That's because recently Young has been hearing about a Galaxy Z Flip Lite, which would supposedly aim to be cheaper than the Z Flip. Interestingly, the Lite model will keep the Ultra Thin Glass employed in the Z Flip.

This is in contrast to what was rumored for the possible Z Fold Lite - namely that it would just go with full plastic like the first Galaxy Fold in order to save on costs.

If a Galaxy Z Flip Lite ever does appear on the market, and if it is, as one can easily predict, cheaper than the Z Flip, then it also stands to reason that it would sell more. We'll have to wait and see what happens, though, for most of this is just wishful thinking at the moment.
