With reports that Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite smartphone is in the making and will be rolled out soon, rumour mills are churning one leak after another. Now in a latest series of rumours, Max Weinbach hints that the price of this smartphone could be $1,099. Mind you! This smartphone is rumoured to come without 5G support to fall in the list of budget-friendly devices.
If we believe these rumours to be true, Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite smartphone will run on Snapdragon 865 chipset along with 256GB storage capacity. It seems that this device is line with the original Samsung Galaxy Fold handset.
Weinbach also tweeted, “I’m unsure about that processor but I did find it in the kernel sources of the S20 Ultra. It means they are at least building software for the 865.”
Besides this, the rumours further revealed that Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite will not be equipped with Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) on its internal screen. So let’s wait and find out what Samsung will do about the scratch protection. News is rife that Samsung Galaxy Fold will likely house a smaller external display like the one on the Z Flip handset. As far as the external screen is concerned, will probably be smaller than before (the original Fold has a 4.6” secondary display).
Made up of aluminium and glass on the sides, Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite smartphone will be available in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple colour options.
Meanwhile, Samsung has partnered with Benow to enable millions of consumers to buy Galaxy smartphones from their neighbourhood stores online. The new digital platform will also help thousands of offline retailers become part of the online ecosystem and reach out to a larger base of consumers.
More than 20,000 offline retailers have already signed up for the digital platform that enables consumers to buy Galaxy smartphones online from their neighbourhood stores.
“At Samsung, the consumer is at the core of everything we do. Our partnership with Benow is part of our broader online to offline (O2O) strategy and is aimed to provide benefits of both offline and online platforms to the consumer. With this new platform, our consumers will be able to browse, select, order, pay and receive their Galaxy smartphone from the comfort of their homes. This will ensure that our consumers don’t have to step out to a physical store at a time when Social Distancing is the new normal. At the same time, the new platform enables thousands of physical retailers to connect with local customers online,” said Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
