Samsung may be close to launching a more affordable foldable phone with cheaper production of flexible display panels. These specialized hinges and flexible displays make up a large part of the phone’s cost, due to low yield rates, expensive materials, and equipment. A change in the production process could save manufacturing costs. However, Samsung must ensure that the screens remain reliable. The shift could allow Samsung to introduce more features while maintaining a premium price tag. Competitors have released more affordable foldable phones, and a lower cost device would help Samsung maintain its lead in the market.
