Folding smartphones are really on track to last at Samsung. Well established in the growing market for foldable smartphones, the Korean brand is preparing to hit hard this year with the successors to its Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 and is preparing behind the scenes for a launch with great fanfare for the end of 2022.

Full production

In any case, this is what analyst Ross Young tells us with a tweet suggesting that Samsung would expect to sell many more units than usual with its future folders. According to him, Samsung intends to produce more than twice as many folding smartphones in 2022.

Samsung’s Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 phone production for July are more than double what it was for the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Pointing to a very strong launch. Might see a price cut.

The hypothesis of a lower proposed price may constitute a plausible explanation for this increase in production. It could therefore be that Samsung is trying to improve its approach to consumers this year with an offer that is more affordable than ever. Especially since the company could also make way for a third version of folding smartphone according to rumors. If the prices of the Fold 4 and Flip 4 were to drop, that could free up some space for an even more premium offering, but we’re not there yet.
