The much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G (with first-ever S Pen support on a foldable) is likely to come to India with a price tag of Rs 1.5 lakh. In comparison, Galaxy Z Flip3 5G will be priced between Rs 85,000-Rs 90,000; reliable industry sources told IANS on Thursday.
Both the devices will be available in India from next month in the premium and uber-premium segments.
Globally, the 7.6-inch Galaxy Z Fold3 will be available for $1,799.99 and the 6.9-inch Galaxy Z Flip3 will cost $999.99.

Available in two variants – 12GB RAM with 512GB internal storage and 12GB RAM with 256GB internal storage — Z Fold3 offers an undisrupted 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display and the first-ever S (Stylus) Pen support on a foldable device. The S Pen will have to be purchased separately.

For the first time ever on a foldable smartphone, Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 are equipped with IPX84 water resistance, so users no longer have to worry when caught in the rain.
