An interesting post about Penang.
During the Galaxy Unpacked August 2021 event earlier this week, Samsung has unveiled two new foldables in the form of Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3. While the company has yet to reveal their availability in our market, we believe we may have stumbled upon their local pricing.
Over the years, we would visit Celcom, Digi, Maxis, and U Mobile’s websites whenever there is a significant smartphone launch by major brands including Samsung to search for information regarding local releases. The majority of the time we couldn’t find anything though until the brands themselves revealed such information to the public.
But it looks like things are different for the newly announced foldables. By using “Galaxy Z” as the search keyword on Digi’s website earlier today, to our surprise, the result that we received includes both devices.
According to the listing on Digi’s website, the retail price of Z Flip3 with 256GB internal storage is RM4,199. On another hand, the Z Fold3 256GB is listed as RM6,699 while the 512GB variant goes for RM7,199.
As a comparison, the starting price of Z Flip3 in the United States is US$999.99 (~RM4,238) but that is for the 128GB model. Over there, the 256GB variant of the phone goes for US$1049.99 (~RM4,450) which is noticeably higher than Malaysia.
This also applies to the Z Fold3 as well since the US pricing for the 256GB model is US$1799.99 (~RM7,628) while the 512GB unit is available for US$1899.99 (~RM8,052). Additionally, the launch price of the original Z Flip and Z Fold2 in Malaysia were RM5,888 and RM7,999 respectively, if you want to take their predecessors into consideration.
Of course, we still have to wait for the official announcement from Samsung Malaysia itself regarding the price tag for Z Flip3 and Z Fold3. That being said, the existence of these listings on Digi’s website may suggest that the announcement may take place very soon.
