The year is not over yet, but it makes sense to start talking about the future. Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) recently held a virtual conference for corporate clients, at which its analysts shared their outlook for various aspects of the industry. And Samsung's 2021 strategy for its foldable smartphone family was one of the key issues raised at the conference.
South Korea is expected to remain the largest foldable phone market in the world next year. According to DSCC's forecast for 2021, the next Galaxy Z Flip smartphone is expected to cost less than previous models. In fact, all the third-generation foldable smartphones are assumed to be more affordable than their predecessors. It is possible that Samsung will finally release a foldable smartphone with a price tag of less than $1,000 next year.
In addition, it is mentioned that the company will also introduce another form factor for the Galaxy Z series next year, along with the new Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip models. The new device in the Galaxy Z family is likely to have a rollable display, according to DSCC, although previous reports mentioned that Samsung is working on a smartphone with a stretchable screen.
In any case, Samsung is going to improve its Galaxy Z series by making it thinner, lighter, and more affordable throughout 2021.
