Samsung's new trade-in policy will make switching to foldable smartphones easier3

rumors, and prices in the neighborhood of $1,599 for the Fold 3 and $959 for the Flip 3 seem like a very real possibility.The Z Flip 5G got a similar treatment, with the price reduced to $1,199 from $1,450. Factor in
Is Samsung's new trade-in offer a sign that the new foldable phones will be as expensive as their predecessors?
For the first time, Samsung will let you trade in two phones or tablets and this makes us question the company's motives. Samsung allegedly knows that foldable sales will be nowhere near Galaxy Note levels. As you may already know, there won't be a Note phone this year.
The new trade-in offer could be a way for the company to entice more users to switch to a foldable device. Prior rumors have already said that Samsung will be going big on marketing and promotions.
Or, it could be that the new phones will not be any cheaper than their predecessors and Samsung wants to make it easier for people to upgrade by letting them turn in two phones. A pre-mature retailer listing has already thrown cold water on reports that the new foldable devices will be around 20 percent more affordable than last year's devices.
