Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Z Flip 5 FE

Samsung is reportedly planning to launch a ‘Galaxy Z FE’ that will be a lighter version of either the Flip or Fold. With the Galaxy Z FE, we can definitely expect a more affordable version of Samsung’s foldable lineup. The specifications, features and hardware would be toned down though from the flagship models but it would still give you that flagship-like experience based on what we’ve seen from previous FE models. 

This rumour comes from tipster Revegnus who shared the information on Twitter. But we’re going to have to wait very long for an affordable foldable from Samsung as it’s said to launch only after the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 next year. So there’s at least a year to go for the Galaxy Z FE.

The tipster also mentioned about the Galaxy S23 FE launching soon. There’s been a lot about the Galaxy S23 FE that has been going around hinting at its imminent launch.
