After the success of Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is now working on two new smartphones namely Galaxy S10 and Galaxy F. The Galaxy F will be company’s first foldable smartphone which might be unveiled by March 2019. Although, the brand hasn’t revealed the official launch date. According to a report that just surfaced, the upcoming Galaxy F or Galaxy Flex could cost as much as USD 2,000.
Samsung Galaxy F might become the most expensive smartphone of 2019
When it comes to pricing, the much-awaited Galaxy F will no doubt arrive with an expensive price tag. The device will be a lot more expensive than the current premium smartphones. If a recent report is to be believed, the Galaxy F will be a mega expensive smartphone priced between USD 1,925 (roughly INR 1,36,011) and USD 2,565 (roughly INR 1,81,231). A person that works for Samsung confirmed the price range to Gizmodo UK. The device might cost even more in some markets. There’s a high chance that Samsung will introduce more than one variants of foldable Galaxy F, but even the starting price might hit an all-time high.
The very same source also confirmed that the popular UK carrier called EE is in talks with Samsung for an exclusive deal. Under this deal, users will be able to purchase Galaxy F in monthly installments. The operator will offer the smartphone on two conditions: Contract and SIM-free. In the contract variant, UK customers will have to switch to the operator. Although, there is still no solid information on this exclusive deal. It is worth noting that Samsung Upgrade Program also offers the smartphone in easy payment schemes with 10% to be paid upfront and the rest of the amount in 24 monthly installments. If EE manages to get an exclusive deal from Samsung, the Galaxy F might not fall under the company’s upgrade program.
