Although the Fold 3 and the Flip 3, the two expected folding smartphones from Samsung, are not bad, they do not come close to flagship quality because of weak cameras and the basic concept.

Because of this, Samsung seems to be adjusting its strategy a bit. According to rumors, the two foldable smartphones will start selling more cheaply than their predecessors. However, there is currently no official information on prices or release.
