After the debut of the Galaxy Z Fold in 2019, Samsung had to put up with a lot of criticism for its first own folding phone. As early as last year, the Fold2 appeared to be more mature, and with the new Fold3, Samsung finally wants to reach a broad audience, which isn't only reflected in the build quality, but in the price as well, since this latest addition has become even more affordable starting at an MSRP of 1,799 Euros (~$1,799).
The concept has remained unchanged. The Galaxy Z Fold3 is very similar to its predecessor in terms of looks, but it's available in more color variants, and it's also a bit lighter and slimmer. In addition to a current high-end SoC, the lower-priced version comes with 256 GB of storage. You'll have to pay an additional $100 if you want to double that.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 no longer has any real competition in its device class, since Huawei's smartphone division has been politically eliminated for the time being. Other manufacturers have yet to introduce similar devices.
