The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been granted a price cut of $200 in the US. The flagship foldable smartphone from the South Korean giant is now selling at $1,799.99, instead of its original $1,999 price. The new retail value still makes it one of the most expensive flagships to buy, but its novelty value of perhaps being the best phone with a foldable display makes it worth it for those with that kind of cash available.
The price drop of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 applies to the unlocked model as well as carrier versions from Verizon and AT&T. Moreover, Samsung is also offering an extended 100-day return policy to users. And then there’s the new referral program that will give you $100 in credit on Samsung’s online store and save the new buyer $100 in their purchase. The only condition is that you should own the device yourself.
Samsung launched the Z Fold 2 in September last year and despite its high price, the phone was praised immensely for the many improvements it bore over its failed predecessor. It comes with a tall outer Super AMOLED display that’s 6.23 inches in size and 816 x 2260 pixels in resolution. The inner display is a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 1768 x 2208 pixel resolution.
The phone runs on the Snapdragon 865 5G+ platform and offers 12GB of RAM as standard. Its rear camera setup includes a trio of 12MP cameras with wide, telephoto, and ultra-wide lenses. And although it does have a 10MP front camera, you can use its rear camera setup for snapping selfies thanks to its foldable nature.
Like we said, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is now being sold in the US at $1,799.99 thanks to the new price drop.
