Pricing the undeniably state-of-the-art Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G last fall at an arguably outrageous $1,800 and up, Samsung has certainly left plenty of room for hefty discounts in the run-up to the highly anticipated next month Z-fold 4 (and Start Z Flip 4).
While maximizing your savings on this flexible giant with a primary 7.6-inch screen and a 6.2-inch cover display is a task best accomplished with a device traded in with the world’s largest manufacturer of handsets themselves, the deepest price cuts to date without any strings attached are not surprising among our Amazon Prime Day 2022 phone sales headliners.
Prime members can currently save as much as $710 off the list prices of $1,799.99 and $1,899.99 of the unlocked Z Fold 3 in 256 and 512GB storage configurations, respectively, with no (other) restrictions and no special conditions whatsoever.
By no means “classic” affordable, the Snapdragon 888 powerhouse comes dangerously close the (heavily discounted) price of the conventional Galaxy S22 Ultra flagship today, which was virtually unimaginable a few months ago.
Admittedly, the S22 Ultra is equipped with a newer and faster Qualcomm processor, as well as significantly better cameras, not to mention that the long-term durability is almost certainly superior too, but the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is an absolute marvel of engineering, offering a surprisingly sophisticated look at an exciting (not so distant) future of a mobile industry that has been stuck in an endless loop of repetitive designs for several years now.
That’s far more valuable than a 108MP rear-facing shooter, 5,000mAh battery, or Gorilla Glass Victus+ screen protector, and it’s arguably worth north of $1,100 or $1,200… even with the undoubtedly improved Galaxy Z Fold 4 around the corner.
