As South Korean tech giant Samsung is all set to roll-out its much-awaited foldable smartphone ‘Galaxy Fold’ on September 6, a new report now suggests that a cheaper Galaxy Fold device for $1,000 is in the works.

The current Galaxy Fold handset is priced at nearly $2000 which is not an amount most people are willing to pay and is not accessible to a larger segment of the population.

The company is planning to use a cheaper design for bringing down its price with just 256GB of internal storage, half of what the current Galaxy Fold offers at 512GB, SamMobile reported on Friday.

The Galaxy A51 also comes with a long-lasting battery that lasts for up to 19 hours of video play back time, according to the company, thanks to the 4000mAh battery with 15W fast charging.
