UPDATE: If you hurry, you can get the unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 3 for an even lower price than the one(s) mentioned below, as Samsung is now running an absolutely bonkers flash sale saving you up to $1,210... with an eligible trade-in. The company is also matching Amazon's no-strings-attached offers, charging $999.99 and $1,099.99 for 256 and 512GB storage variants respectively with no questions asked but only for a few hours.
If you miss out on this lightning promo, the ones below are likely to remain available for at least a little while longer.
Like the Galaxy Z Fold 2 before it and the Z Fold 4 after, the 2021-released Galaxy Z Fold 3 powerhouse was certainly not cheap, originally setting adventurous foldable fans back $1,800 with 256GB internal storage space, 12GB RAM, and a Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 comes with a refined design and considerably more powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, as well as an upgraded 50MP primary camera, at a substantially lower price than that nowadays (especially during Samsung flash sales), you probably won't be shocked to hear that the Z Fold 3 is also deeply discounted (at the last possible moment) before Christmas.Because the

If you don't have anything (good) to trade in or simply don't want to jump through any sort of hoops, Amazon's hot new deal is clearly perfect for you, improving on all of the e-commerce giant's similar promotions from the past few months to set a new all-time record as far as discounts with no special conditions are concerned.
Meanwhile, digital hoarders should definitely consider opting for a 512GB storage variant sold at an identical $900 markdown on Amazon with no strings attached and up to $1,060 off its $1,899.99 regular price at Samsung.
Compared to Amazon, the Z Fold 3's manufacturer is offering a pretty humble $650 discount on both 256 and 512 gig configurations sans trade-in at the time of this writing, although if that mind-blowing Z Fold 4 flash deal from Monday is any indication, we could see those numbers bumped up at any moment, even if only for a few hours.
