Samsung plans to expand the price range of foldable smartphones, as per a outline. The company revealed this in its convention call for the quarter, and added that it is going to continue to fortify its portfolio in the foldable category in 2021. Since Samsung’s currently to be had foldable phones are priced at a premium, a wider price range for future foldable phones could cause them to more affordable.
As per a outline by The Elec, Samsung said that even though foldable smartphones account for very little in complete smartphone sales, it is going to continue to grow the category once a year.
The South Korean tech giant also revealed that it is expecting sales and profitability both to drop in the fourth quarter of 2020, because of intensified competition for the year’s end sales. Samsung’s operating profits were reportedly the highest in two years though, and sales were its highest ever for a quarter.
Meantime, according to a recent outline, Samsung’s upcoming foldable phone will come with an S Pen. The outline says that Samsung filed a patent for a similar back in April, and describes Samsung’s plans of making future foldable phones compatible with the S Pen.
The Samsung W21 5G foldable phone however is going to be launched in China on November 4 according to a tipster. It is likely to be identical to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, which was once launched in China earlier but is tied with China Telecom carrier for 5G connectivity.
