Based on last weeks poll most people are not interested in a foldable clamshell phone like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip its too expensive, nearly half of the voters think so. And thats even though the Z Flip is significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Fold (it is expected to cost 1,400, down from the hair-raising price of 2,020 for the Fold).
Even though clamshells won a poll as the best foldable form factor, theres a large contingent of voters who want a larger foldable like the Galaxy Fold, not a small one like the Z Flip. The lack of 5G connectivity or Snapdragon 865 chipset was a relatively minor concern all things considered.
Of those that do want a Galaxy Z Flip, most will only part with their money after reading reviews. And a significant fraction of those will wait for long-term reviews. Some issues with the Galaxy Fold were immediately obvious, but it took months to find all problems.
The good news is that while bleeding-edge technology starts off expensive, it comes down in price pretty quickly. And if that proves to be the major hurdle to the path of Samsung Galaxy Z Flips success, it will be resolved in a few years.
