With the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked just few days away, Samsung is gearing up and setting up its various market places for the devices. The two most anticipated devices are the two foldable – the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The specifications of the two new Samsung foldable smartphones have been revealed. Even the possible prices of these devices in India has also been leaked. If you’re interested in the devices, you can now reserve your pre-booking on the official Samsung Shop App.
You can now pre-book Samsung’s new foldables in India
From the pre-booking page (see images below), you need to pay Rs 2,000 ($28) to get a ‘VIP Pass’ and this money gets deducted from the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s price when you make full payment.
You also get a free Galaxy Smart Tag that is worth Rs 2,699 ($36). But, for you to get the free object tracker, you have to complete the Galaxy Z Fold 3 when it’s available. Samsung is also promising a 100% refund for buyers in the case of cancellation.
Considering the speculated high price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, paying a total of Rs 4,699 is very small. The price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is speculated to be around Rs 135,000 ($1,820). And paying just Rs 4,699 ($63) as pre-booking fee seems very little.
Also, the $1,820 does not include the upgraded S Pen. The price of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is rumored to be about Rs 90,000 ($1,212). Samsung has been trying to make its two new foldable smartphones appeal to users.
That is why in the US, Samsung is offering 12 months of free Samsung Care+ with Galaxy Z Fold 3 pre-orders in the US, along with a host of yet-to-be-revealed goodies.
Will these new Samsung foldable smartphones be accepted by many given its speculated high price tag? We don’t yet for sure but we’ll have wait and see what happens at the end of the Samsung Unpacked event.
