Samsung shared the rest of the details of its Galaxy Z Fold 2 foldable today, providing both specs and release details. We also know the price, and I feel like I should warn you about it. Sit down, please.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 price and release date
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 costs $1,999.99 in the US and arrives on September 18. That’s a $20 price increase over last year’s original model and I’m not about to sell you on how a $20 increase is a good thing. Good lord, this is an expensive device.
This year, Samsung has partnered with more carriers and retailers on the Z Fold 2, so we are hoping it will be easier to buy. Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile will have it, there will be unlocked models too, and Samsung’s own store will sell you both colors (Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black) once again.
There are trade-in values from Samsung that top out at $800, but it sounds like the likely value you’ll get will be closer to $650. Carriers will offer similar deals that include both trade-ins and gift cards (Verizon), or you could just pay $83.33/mo for one. That should help with that $2,000 price tag some, eh?
Pre-orders open tonight at midnight (or September 2 at 12:01AM Eastern).
Galaxy Z Fold 2 specs tick the boxes
As far as Z Fold 2 specs go, since Samsung didn’t want to share these a few weeks back, the full list is below.
We have the Snapdragon 865+ and 5G, 12GB RAM, 256GB UFS 3.1 storage, big inside display with 120Hz refresh rate, triple rear 12MP camera setup, a couple of 10MP selfie cameras, 4500mAh battery, stereo speakers, and more. It’s got what you need, and it better.
