A wise man once said, “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em.” He was, of course, talking about Samsung’s foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Introduced back in September 2020 with a price tag of $2,999, the Fold 2 has recently received a permanent $500 price drop and is now available for $2,499.

As its name suggests, the Galaxy Fold 2’s major gimmick is that you’re able to fold it out from a standard smartphone display into a tablet-like display.

In her review of the phone, Gizmodo Australia’s editor Tegan Jones praised the Fold 2’s cameras, improved display and the multi-tasking possibilities of the unfolded screen. While there are plenty of good reasons to pick up this phone – outside of the novelty factor – its original price point was quite steep.

If you’ve been sitting on the fence about picking up this smartphone, or you’ve been waiting for a price reduction, now’s your time to strike

If you have a few grand currently burning a hole in your pocket, you’re able to buy the foldable smartphone outright. If not, we’ve also included the cheapest 24-month and 36-month phone plans for the Samsung Fold 2.
