Given that Samsung used to charge a whopping $2,000 for an unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 2 with 5G support, you might find it hard to believe that the same company could price the presumably better Z Fold 3 at “only” $1,600 or so right off the bat next month.
But if you’ve been keeping an eye on the best places you can buy last year’s foldable powerhouse from, you already know a number of major US retailers are laying the groundwork for the commercial debut of a more affordable Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G by viciously (and continuously) slashing its predecessor’s aforementioned price.
Microsoft has proven by far the most generous authorized seller of Samsung gadgets over the last couple of years or so, but if a sub-$1,500 Z Fold 2 5G in brand-new condition didn’t feel cheap enough just a few weeks back, the same handset is now available for only $1,199.99.
We’re talking about new, unused, unopened, and undamaged units sold in their original packaging once again with unlocked support for all major US carriers, as well as a top-notch combination of 256 gigs of internal storage space and 12GB RAM.
Unfortunately, the Mystic Black version is already out of stock and unlikely to come back anytime soon at this crazy low price, with the Mystic Bronze color option listed as available in a limited quantity only at the time of this writing on Microsoft’s official eBay Outlet Store.
By no means a flawless device… at $2,000 or $1,700, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is incredibly hard to beat in terms of bang for buck as part of this outstanding and unprecedented deal.
Capable of rivaling many of 2021’s best phones when it comes to raw power and camera versatility, this bad boy offers truly unbeatable screen real estate and flexibility with a main 7.6-inch foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel and a 6.23-inch Super AMOLED cover display.
