Foldable phones are nice. They're also really, really expensive — for example, Samsung's 2020 foldable flagship, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, was priced $2,000 at launch. But according to leaker Evan Blass, this will change for the better with the next generation of Samsung foldables, due to launch in a week. On Tuesday, Blass tweeted what appear to be official recommended prices for the upcoming devices in Europe.

According to Blass, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will start at €1,899 ($2,256), while another variant — presumably one with more storage — will cost €1,999 ($2,375). The Galaxy Z Flip 3, on the other hand, will start at €1,099 ($1,305), while the variant with more storage will cost €1,149 ($1,365). Prices in euros almost never translate directly to dollars; the U.S. prices will surely be lower. But what's important about the prices above is that they're significantly lower than the starting euro prices of last year's Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 2 — €121 and €260, respectively. If Blass' numbers are accurate, Samsung's new foldables should be way more wallet-friendly than the previous models.

Blass also shared possible prices of other upcoming Samsung devices. According to his sources, the 40-millimeter Galaxy Watch 4 will cost €279 ($332), while the 44-millimeter version of the same device will cost €309 ($367). Then there's the 42mm Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which will cost €379 ($450), and the 46-millimeter Galaxy Watch Wise, which will cost €409 ($486). Finally, the upcoming Galaxy Buds 2 will cost €159 ($189). Again, the dollar prices are just for reference; it's almost a given that prices in dollars will be significantly lower than what you get when you directly convert euro prices. All of these devices will officially be launched on Aug. 11; check here for a preview of what we can expect in terms of specs.
