The democratization of technology is, succinctly, the possibility for any socio-economic stratum to acquire, with a similar financial effort, a certain technological product. Thus, when we are told that Samsung is preparing a Galaxy A mobile phone with a foldable configuration, the optimism of this market-leading manufacturer is added to the surprise.
More specifically, the dominance of South Korean technology in the foldable smartphone market is undeniable, and this is the brand that dared to cross these seas never sailed before (with commercial success). Now, in addition to the millionaires Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, and the more affordable, but still expensive Galaxy Z Flip, we will have a Samsung Galaxy Foldable?!
There’s a new cheap, foldable Samsung phone on the way?!
Incredulity still guides our perception of the new leak of information, as there is too much good news to be true. On the other hand, if there is a manufacturer with the necessary logistical and infrastructure conditions to make such a product happen, Samsung is the first brand that comes to mind.
It should be noted, first of all, that the source of this information, the Twitter user known as “No name”, or @chunvn8888 is not one of the usual sources. However, it has advanced some tips that have proved to be right over the last few months. That said, interpret these possibilities with some criticism.
The cheap folding smartphone will only arrive between 2024 and 2025
As the leaker himself warns, a Galaxy A mobile phone with a folding configuration will still take time to reach the market to be introduced only in 2024, or 2025. That is, it will currently be in the early stages of internal development.
On the other hand, as Samsung expands its dominance in the foldable segment, this possibility is dressed up in lucidity. It is only natural that, after crystallizing its position in the premium segment, Samsung wanted to extend this “trump card” to the mid/high range segment as well.
The forecasts from market analysis agencies contribute to this, which foresee an increase in demand for folding devices in the coming years. Meanwhile, Samsung is increasingly dominant in this sector, with a 74% market share in the foldable segment, according to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC).
In short, despite the surprise when we found out about this possibility, when analyzing the market conditions, it is a hypothesis that turns out to be perfectly plausible. That is, Samsung is likely to put a new smartphone on the folding market, even cheaper than its Galaxy Z Flip.
