As MySmartPrice reported today, the Samsung SM-F415F/DS has appeared in the list of Samsung India’s official website. Unfortunately, there is no other information. Apart from this, Sammobile reported last week that Samsung is developing a cheap version of the Galaxy Fold. Its model is SM-F415F. And there is every reason to think the phone will be called the Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite.
Correspondingly, last week a new Samsung phone with the model number SM-F415F/DS (DS refers to the Indian market) passed the WiFi Alliance certification. The certification information shows that the device does not support WiFi 6. This was a clear hint that the machine will use a non-flagship chip. MySmartPrice said that the machine may use Qualcomm mid-range chips (SD7XX).
According to @hwangmh01, the machine will be covered with CPI (colorless polyimide) instead of the UTG (ultra-thin glass) material of the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold 2. CPI is not as strong as UTG. So this screen will be more prone to damage.
In other aspects, according to SamMobile, the machine will provide dual SIM card support, with a storage specification of 64GB/128GB. As for color variants, it will be available in blue, black, and emerald.
The cheapest folding screen phone currently sold by Samsung is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, priced at 12499 yuan ($1820).
MySmartPrice said that the SM-F415F model is highly likely to be officially released before the end of September 2020. And the price is expected to be less than $1,000 (about 6864 yuan)
