Samsung's official Galaxy Z Fold 3, Flip 3, and Watch 4 model prices leak, cheaper indeed

Samsung's official Galaxy Z Fold 3, Flip 3, and Watch 4 prices leak, cheaper indeed
UPDATE: The UK prices leaked out via 91Mobiles, too - £1599 (~1880 EUR) for the Z Fold 3 and £949 (~1117 EUR) for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 - pretty much confirming the pricing info below and the lower-than-predecessors price tag overall.

By now, we know almost everything there is to know about next week's Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 announcement. Heck, both Samsung 2021 foldables leaked just yesterday in gorgeous high-res official renders with the specs to match.

When it comes to that all-important detail, however - the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 pricing - the tips are all over the place. They range from more expensive than their predecessors to much less expensive but when Mr Evan Blass from @evleaks posts what seems to be official pricing from a Samsung website, and tacks on the Galaxy Watch 4 prices, that's as good as it gets. 

If you are wondering what's "B2" and what's "Wise" in the pictures, these are Samsung's internal codenames for the Z Flip 3 and Watch 4, respectively, and that's what leads to the thought that these were scraped off directly from a Samsung website.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Z Fold 2 price

  • 1899 vs 2020 EUR (256GB model)

The pricing for the most souped-up 512GB model of the Z Fold 3 is disclosed as 1999 EUR, while that, and in some European countries even higher, was the starting price for the basic Z Fold 2 last year. The 256GB model is 1899 EUR, and that is cheaper by a hundred from the basic Fold 2 already. 

Last year, those European prices directly converted to dollars, rather than their equivalent, and some indications show that Samsung may be making a PR move by lowering the Z Fold 3 price in the US even further, so we wouldn't be surprised if the heretofore $1799 rumors are confirmed upon launch.

While a Benjamin or two off the Z Fold 3 pricing compared to the starting tag of its predecessor may not seem much, remember that you are getting a much more powerful handset with S Pen support and two high refresh rate displays this time around, not to mention the novelty of the under-panel camera on the main display.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 vs Z Flip 5G price

  • 1099 vs 1359 EUR (128GB)

With the Z Flip 3, Samsung is cutting prices even more significantly, it seems. Instead of the OG Z Flip's €1359 starting price in Europe, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 blasts off from just €1099 for the 128GB, making it the cheapest foldable of 2021. 

The 256GB Galaxy Z Flip 3 version comes in at €1149, again a large drop in pricing from its predecessor. You, however, will be getting a much more powerful processor, tougher foldable glass, and larger external display.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic vs Galaxy Watch 3 price

  • $349 vs $379 (42mm)

Samsung's Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic pricing has also been leaked here, and the tips confirm they will be cheaper than their predecessors, too. The 46mm Watch 4 Classic, which is the equivalent of last year's 45mm Watch 3, will cost €409, whereas the Watch 3 started north of €450 in Europe. The 42mm Watch 4 Classic price is pegged at €379, again lower.

While last year the Watch 3 started at this leaked Watch 4 Classic price, but in dollars, the $379 price in the US will be lower this year, claims leakster Snoopytech, by $30. We'll see if this claim pans out, but if the Watch 4 Classic starts at a $349 price for the smaller 42mm version indeed, this will lend further credence to Samsung's reduced pricing trend of 2021, a very welcome one.

The Watch 4, which will be the Watch Active equivalent, or, nudge, wink, the Apple Watch SE - a cheaper, sportier version - starts from just €279 for the 40mm version, and €309 for the larger, 44mm model.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 vs Galaxy Buds Pro price

  • 159 vs 199 EUR

Last but not least, the €159 price tag of the upcoming Galaxy Buds 2 - active noise cancellation, long battery life and all - actually measures up lower than the launch price of the Buds Pro there, for instance. 

Of course, Europe is Europe, and some countries sell the same phones more expensive than others, yet all in all it seems that we'll be getting more for less with all Samsung devices that will be announced during the August 11 Unpacked event, sweet!
