It is expected that 2021 will be the year when foldable mobile devices will break into the mainstream, with more companies than ever reportedly working to refine, strengthen and make these kinds of versatile products more accessible to the masses with lower prices and better specifications.
Originally priced at an arguably excessive $1,380, the early 2020-released clamshell smartphone is currently available for a whopping $530 less than “usual” on Amazon in a factory unlocked variant compatible with all major (and minor) US carriers.
That amounts to a whopping 38 per cent discount, but while we can’t deny the great appeal of this amazing new deal, we’d be remiss not to point out that the unlocked 4G LTE-only Galaxy Z Flip is long past $1,380. Its own manufacturer is asking $280 less than that at the time of this writing, which also feels excessive given the multiple recent discounts that the Z Flip 5G has also received.
Still, the slightly slower Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered Galaxy Z Flip 4G is still cheaper than its brother released in the summer of 2020, with the two devices sharing all their other specs and features, from a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED main screen to a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED cover display, a dual 12MP rear-facing camera system, a 3,300mAh battery, 8GB of RAM and 256 gig of internal storage.
In addition to taking everything that Samsung is tipped to roll out this year into consideration before pulling the trigger here, you may also want to think about potentially purchasing the larger, more impressive, and significantly better-reviewed Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G. Unfortunately, that monster of a foldable phone is once again available at its obscene retail price, although for what it’s worth, you can get a renewed unit backed by a 90-day warranty at close to a $400 discount right now.
