The first time we heard something about a Lite version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 was last year. But we've heard little about it since and some even suggested the Lite mode might have been axed due to the global chip shortage. Yet now The Korea Herald sparks those rumors once again claiming that Samsung is readying a Lite model for the upcoming Unpacked event.
It's clear by now that Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 with the former even getting a solid price cut according to numerous rumors. But introducing an entirely new, cheaper version of the model is something else. We remain somewhat vigilant of the presented information because we haven't heard almost anything about the Lite as opposed to the very detailed leaks for the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3.
On the other hand, the intel about the discontinuation of the Z Flip3 Lite may be partially true and we haven't seen any specs or renders as it's still far from being released. This in turn suggests that the Lite might merely come later in the year rather than being cancelled altogether.
They should have released an z fold 3 lite since its still well above 1.5k and that's expensive. If they put like sd 7xx or dimensity series with 12mp ultra wide camera if not with telephoto and decent camera main. Display idk but mod tlikely it...
I'm all in for Samsung to launch a "lite" Flip model. I like that idea and I hope it starts to catch up
I think Sammy will play it smart and only release the "lite" edition in Q1 2022
