Is it just me, or has the top end of the smartphone market gone completely doolally?

I suppose that it's the equivalent of a Bugatt Veyron. You don't need to buy one, but hell, why not

This device is more of a tablet than a phone, but even so, the price does seem inordinately high.

Prices will tend to tumble as sales rise, and the second generation model comes along. They'll have to tumble a very long way before I would consider buying one.

Building a Phone into a Tablet should not be such a big deal, after all they share about 50% of the hardware

It's also a foldable device, that's a trend that is always currently very expensive.

Im still waiting for SS Galaxy Fold.

That one is also ludicrously expensive and I for one am not prepared to pay the price of being an early adopter. It is also far to early to see if the folding screen is durable.
