According to SAM Mobile, these economical foldable phones carry model number SM-F415 and one of these devices will have 64GB and 128GB storage options whereas various color options including blue, green, and black. Right not nothing is known much about the device and as the information doesn’t come from much reputable resource, so there is no confirmation whether it is right or wrong.
Samsung’s second folding device, Galaxy Z Flip costs $600 less than the first one which was launched for $1,980.
