Samsung's new foldable phones come with a price cut, but they'll still cost you at least $1,000

Washington Post - Technology News

The Z Flip 3 has other qualities going for it, too, like a pair of high-quality 12-megapixel rear cameras and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor that helps the phone run as fast as some of the most expensive Android devices out there. There's a 1.9-inch outward-facing screen, too, so you can read incoming messages and control your music without having to open the phone. And it comes with 5G support for the nation's wireless carriers, though you may still be hard-pressed to see the difference most of the time.

Amazon cuts Samsung's Galaxy S20 5G price back to $950 for today only


Samsung's Galaxy S20 5G is one of the best flagship phones you can get, but the $1,200 price tag makes it a big "nope" for many folks. Luckily, as it did last month, Amazon is making it much more palatable with a $250 discount. As before, you can get the 128GB model in Cloud Blue, Cosmic Gray and Cosmic Black for just $950 (instead of $1,200). While it lacks the crazy 108-megapixel camera of Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra, the S20 has the other main features and is lighter and less expensive to boot. Key features include a smooth 120Hz display, a triple-camera setup with a 64-megapixel main shooter and Snapdragon 865 processor with no less than 12GB of RAM.

Samsung might soon launch a $1,100 version of the Galaxy Fold


If the $1,980 price tag on Samsung's Galaxy Fold is too much for you (it is), and you really want a foldable phone, you'll be happy to know that there might be a far more affordable option coming. SamMobile reported Wednesday, quoting Display Supply Chain Consultants CEO Ross Young, that Samsung is going to launch a "Special Edition" Galaxy Fold in July, with a price tag of $1,099. This builds up on rumors that a Samsung Galaxy Fold Lite is on the way, which is probably the same device. According to the report, the cheaper Fold will look like the original Galaxy Fold but it will have last year's components, allowing Samsung to offer it at a greatly reduced price. The compromises might involved a smaller cover display, 4G instead of 5G and 256GB base storage.

Get a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S10 for a fraction of its new price


SAVE 67%: High-end smartphones are rarely on sale, but you can find serious discounts when you buy them renewed. This Samsung Galaxy S10 usually costs $849.99, but as of April 6 you can get a renewed model for just $274.69, which is a discount of 67% and a fantastic deal. Brands like Apple and Samsung come out with new product launches so often that it can be hard to keep up, but that just means that older models of their phones and other tech still boast impressive features. Samsung's Galaxy S line, for example, consistently comprises some of its most high-performing phones, with ever-faster processors and camera upgrades in each new iteration, and prices to match. Though it debuted in 2019, it comes equipped with an impressive Snapdragon 855 chip (a bit older and slower than the newest of chips, but the difference is so minute you likely won't notice), an in-screen fingerprint reader (the pandemic showed us the limits of facial recognition), and dynamic OLED display, which supports HDR10 content viewing and reduces blue light emission.
