Well, I'm guessing in 5 yrs all flagships will be foldable only. By then, we should also have an $700 foldable with decent specs.If it's around $1600 I'll be very interested. But I imagine we'll be looking at closer to $2k which is a hard no for me even though it probably is justified given the tech.
If thats true...it makes things very interesting. At $1750 they may be able to convince some people that would have been willing to pay ~$1400 for the Note Ultra or Iphone 12 Pro Max.Max weinbach seems to think pricing might be
$1750 for 256GB and 12GB of ram
$2070 for 512GB and 16GB of ram

Also, that would be one hell of a markup for just more storage and ram on the 512gb version.
@The Game 161 Where did you see him say this? I looked on Twitter but didnt find anything.
The more news that gets released on the Galaxy Fold 2, the more interested I get. I figured I would be waiting a few more generations but they seem to have made a big leap forward from the first Fold.
However, the one thing I wanted to check was to see how well the Fold 1 held it's re-sale value, since I switch phones usually twice a year. The results werent great. I found mint condition Fold 1's selling for under 50% of their original price less than a year later. Thats not too far off from the norm on Samsung devices but its still worse. And when that 50% translates to losing over $1k, thats really tough to swallow.
Im not saying that eliminates it for me, but the release, price, and pre-order needs to be really special for me to seriously consider it. Just speaking for myself here. I can totally see why this phone would be appealing to other tech fans.
I think there is some truth in that and also Samsung strategy differs greatly to Apple re trade-in values bundled goodies for early adopters etc etc, or those that wait ~ 6 months for a cheaper sticker price but no bundles.You know, one of the reasons I've gotten iPhones every year used to be resale value. I think it was a 6s that I bought for like 900-1000 and sold for 800 when I got the 7, which was a great example.
I was disappointed to see that the xs max I bought for 1750 or so was actually going for 700-800 when the 11 generation rolled around. Interestingly, it's still going for 700-800 almost a year later.
I think with high priced phones comes poorer resale value, just like with cars. The more expensive, the bigger the hit will eventually be.
