According to South Korean publication ET News, Samsung’s Mobile Experience division is planning to launch the low-end versions of the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip foldable smartphones. The report further claims that the company aims to launch these devices with the Galaxy A branding. Hence, it appears that the South Korean tech giant may launch Galaxy A Fold and Galaxy A Flip branded affordable foldable phones.

The report further states that only the core functions will be available on the entry-level foldable phones. Hence, it appears that these devices will lack premium features that are available on Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip devices.

The Galaxy A branded foldable phones are likely to cost under 1 million KRW (Rs 60,800). Unfortunately, Samsung may not release it soon to the market. The report claims that the first Galaxy A foldable phone may arrive in 2024.

Meanwhile, Samsung is working on its next-generation Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip models. Rumours are rife that the South Korean company may hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event on August 10th, 2022. The event is likely to see the arrival of multiple devices, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Galaxy Watch 5, and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
