Is the market prepared to receive a foldable smartphone with all the features it brings? Such a sensitive screen, does it convince consumers?
Well, Samsung thinks so and besides having opened the pandora box with the presentation of the expensive Galaxy Fold, now wants to bring a cheaper one, but it won't be cheap! According to some information, the Galaxy Fold Lite is coming.
Alleged information leaks account for some specifications of this which will be the most affordable model in the Samsung Fold series. But it may not excite the consumer!
New Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite may appear soon
A few days ago, it was reported that Samsung is developing a cheaper version of the Galaxy Fold. Subsequently, there were some rumors that showed the specifications of the phone, known as Galaxy Fold Lite (also referred to as Galaxy Fold E).
According to Max Weinbach of XDA-Developers, the Galaxy Fold Lite 4G, codenamed “Winner2”, will have 256 GB of storage and a Snapdragon 865 processor. 5G is not supported, as you can see in the device name . There is also no mention of RAM, but it is expected to be 8 GB or 12 GB.
This new foldable will have a flexible screen without UTG (ultra-thin glass). This means that the screen will be covered with plastic. Therefore, the external screen will be smaller with a size similar to what we can see on the Galaxy Z Flip.
I have some info on the Galaxy Fold Lite.
-Galaxy Fold Lite 4G
-Mirror Black, Mirror Purple
-Display has on UTG
-Will be equipped with a mix of 2018/19/20 parts
-outside will probably have a smaller display (not like on Fold, but more like the Z Flip)

Galaxy Fold Lite: Price and availability
According to rumors, the structural line will not change much, at least at first sight. Thus, this device will have a mixture of aluminum and glass, on the outside. It is also said to feature a combination of specifications from 2018, 2019 and 2020. The Galaxy Fold Lite will arrive in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple, will be priced at $ 1099 (about 930 euros) and will be available globally.
Although there are some rumors with some credibility, given the current market, it is said that, until a final version comes out, the specifications may still change. Therefore, the phone can be marketed with different specifications.
As for availability, if at this time the market is complicated in terms of historically scheduled launches, the worst will be for these intermediate launches. There are no dates on when this equipment will be finalized or when it will reach the market.
