Samsung working on an ‘affordable’ Lite variant of the Galaxy Z Flip: All you need to know

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip earlier in the year and then followed it up with the Galaxy Z Fold 2 just a few months ago. While both phones weren’t a runaway success, the company hopes it can reverse the trend with its next foldable phone which is now set to be a lite variant of the Galaxy Z Flip.

This phone is rumored to be an affordable foldable phone, which, according to whistleblower Ross Young, may just be one of the most foldable phones the company could work on this year. Answer questions about Twitter, the tipster also said that the Galaxy Z Flip Lite will adopt UTG (Ultra-Thin-Glass) like the predecessor.

As a reminder, this is the same glass technology that Samsung used with the Galaxy Z Flip in February. This type of glass has been promised in the past to be more durable and scratch resistant than other materials available.

Aside from that, little is known about the interior of the lite variant of the Galaxy Z Flip. However, it is not expected to stray too far from the original Flip in terms of hardware. Speaking of the phone, it came with a 6.7-inch dynamic AMOLED display on the device with the maximum resolution of 2636 × 1080. There is also a secondary 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display. Under the hood, there’s a 7nm 64-bit Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The phone comes with a foldable phone that supports the One UI 2 version.

For the cameras, there is a dual camera setup inside with a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel one. The phone also has a 10-megapixel selfie lens. The whole package is powered by a 3300mAh battery.

In India, the Galaxy Z Flip is currently on sale for Rs 83,999 on Amazon. However, the Z Flip Lite is expected to retail for a much cheaper price when it finally launches. However, it will still be interesting to see how low Samsung can bring down the price of the phone once it is launched.

The Galaxy Z Flip Lite may have a similar design and specs but at a more affordable price.
