The story of the TENAA certification of the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 earlier in the day comes from a price leak in Samsung’s home market. The Galaxy Fold3 would cost between KRW 1,900,000 and KRW 1,999,000 ($1,655 – $1,741), while the Z Flip3 will cost between KRW 1,200,000 and KRW 1,280,000 ($1,045 – $1,110).

The latest pricing information comes from an article on the South Korean Forum Naver Blog and corroborates previous rumors of a 20% price drop compared to the previous generation of Samsung foldables. For reference, the Z Fold2’s launch price in South Korea last year was KRW 2,398,000 ($2,088) while the Z Flip started at KRW 1,650,000 ($1,435).
Another interesting piece of information from the new report is that Samsung will actively push customers to trade in their old devices and switch to the new foldable devices. These benefits will further increase the price of its incoming foldable phones. Current owners of Fold and Flip will likely get the best rates to upgrade. The report also mentions that Samsung considers this year’s folding duo to be a mass popularizer for foldable form factors.
