    $1,980 Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    Apple by like you just reset the bar and they want in on those type of prices.

    Did you hear the crowd swallow their tongue when the price flashed. I almost did as well. That gasp said it all.

    Crazy price. I also bet most apps won't support it for a bit -- hence why they only showed 3 apps.

    Yeah, I’ll never pay $2,000 for a phone, no matter how earth-shatteringly cool it is. Hard pass.

    Time will tell how popular this device will be.

    Wonder what networks will supply it and at what tariff costs.

    Wouldn't want to smash the screen on one of those.

    Its a little pricier than I thought i'd be but Samsung put the R&D into this so I am not surprised. It'll come down way in price 2-3years as more companies bring their own version and the tech becomes cheaper.

    I like it but I like it at $1100, 1200 top! I'll wait till the fold 2 which inevitably will drop the price as the materials and tech to build it gets cheaper.

    After seeing the 2K price tag on the foldable model, I don’t think it’s going to sell like hot cakes? I know it’s a niche device, but I would have thought 1500US would be the top end of the spectrum for it? But, who knows in this crazy market, now it’s wait and see.

    They don't plan on selling it in big numbers or to the everyday person. The phone will be the ultimate status symbol this summer for people who think their phone is a status symbol. I doubt Samsung even plans to break even on selling the device.

    True all this device is is just a big ego trip for Samsung that they finally were able to get a foldable phone out before anyone else.

    I wouldn’t pay for a phone that cost more than a MacBook Pro. That’s just dumb.

    The phone was never intended for the masses. It's a toy for the rich.

    I think everyone needs to relax on the price. It's a beta phone that we actually have access too. Not for everyone but a great step in the direction for a mass made one years down the road. After seeing what previous companies did with their folding phones this one is heads and tales better. Samsung is the leader in screen tech and they showed it off big time yesterday.

    12gb ram.
    4,380maH battery.
    That's what upping the price.

    Also on the other post, I mentioned that phone prices are not going down. Look at the "S" series, Note and even Apple. The next gen may even cost more.

    Apps may only play on part of the screen or have to be tablet mode.

    The phone is certainly intriguing, but 2K is a lot. Normally I'd be all over the new tech, but in part due to the price I think I'm going to wait and see what the others (Huawei, Xiaomi, etc.) come out with.

    This is exactly the problem. It’s a prototype phone that shouldn’t even be released in this form at all.

    The idea of a phone/tablet is ideal for me based on the way I use both technologies. But, I'm not going to pay $2000 for a first generation version. I might be willing to pay a high price later but right now I think $2000 is too high and likely this first version will be showing up a lot of kinks and quirks that will be eliminated from future iterations.

    But that's exactly the reason for the high price. They're only going to make a thousand or so of these phones. They're not for the average consumer yet. They're for rich tech people who will give them the feedback they need going forward.

    The price is insane. But all of the flagship smartphones are trending that way. Makes me feel even better about my Moto X4 that I paid $149.99 for. The interesting thing will be too see how it changes the way consumers use their smartphone. There are some features of the Galaxy Fold that would be problematic for me.

    You are not the target for this device. This is a device for the price insensitive market. I am not the target either, but I have friends who would not have any problem paying $2K for a fun new item. The Fold is a test bed for Samsung. They don't plan to sell a lot, but it helps them establish a leadership position among major vendors.

    BTW, if you Lenovo is going to release a cheap screen folding Moto Razor think again. My guess will be the cost won't be that much cheaper than the Samsung.
