Just yesterday, SamMobile quoted a report as saying that Samsung is working on a budget foldable model number SM-F415. At the time, SamMobile did not provide any evidence. The handset with model number SM-415F / DS is now Certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The letter “F” after the code number refers to Foldable. For example, the original Galaxy Fold model number was F900, and the Z Flip was F700.
The Samsung SM-415F / DS appears to be running Android 10, which means it will bring a One UI 2.x. It also features Wi-Fi b / g / n / ac dual-band and Wi-Fi Direct. The device’s firmware version mysteriously mentions the codename M315F, which corresponds to the Galaxy M31. However, it may just be a cunning way to hide the true identity of the new Samsung folding.
The South Korean tech giant uses the code name of the SM-FXXX series for its Galaxy Z series of folding smartphones. Following this logic, the SM-F415F must be a low-cost folding device. The smartphone that has gone through the certification process appears to have a dual SIM card slot. The information that has come to us so far points out that the next low-cost foldable phone can even be made available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants.
SamMobile referred to Samsung SM-415F / DS as Budget Foldable, but the Galaxy Fold Lite was postponed to 2021 in late June. In other words, the Galaxy Fold Lite can be expected to be affordable. In terms of price, even if it is budget foldable, it will be around at least $1000. However, for a foldable phone, the price is cheaper. It’s even seen on the Wi-Fi Alliance, so more details will be revealed soon, so stay tuned.
