2. Mini-review

In fact, its introductory price of $999 makes is around the same price as a Galaxy S21 Plus, although no one would dare to call the Galaxy Z Flip 3 an 'affordable' device by stretch of the imagination. That said, there are a couple of nifty ways to save some cash on a pre-order with this week's introductory Galaxy Z Flip 3 deals which you can see just below.

Key upgrades include a beefy new Snapdragon 888, an expanded cover screen that's four times the size of that featured on the previous model, and some new camera software upgrades. Samsung has also improved the refresh rate of the internal display so it's zipping along at a speedy 120Hz - which brings it in line with all the latest flagship devices on the market. Pre-orders are open right now, with an official release date penned in for August 27th.

If you'd like to read a bit more about the specs of this device we've attached a mini-review just at the bottom of the page, just beneath this week's best Galaxy Z Flip 3 deals.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3: $200 Samsung Store credit with pre-order
As you probably expect, you can pre-order Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 deals directly from Samsung itself. And, there's plenty of reason to do so as well. Firstly, Samsung operates an excellent trade-in program that offers both unlocked and carrier devices with maximum rebates of up to $500 - even if your device has a cracked screen. Even if you don't trade-in, however, you'll also score a $200 Samsung store gift card to spend on any number of accessories.

Also available is an alternative 'buy-one get-one' promo, which will score you a second device on the house when you purchase the first outright with a new line on an unlimited data plan.

Finally, Samsung has finally managed to do what seemed impossible just a few years ago - produce a foldable device that actually costs around the same as a similarly specced out 'normal' device. Well, relatively speaking - the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 does still costs $999 at launch, which isn't exactly pocket change.

That puts it in same price bracket as the 'plus' sized flagships like the iPhone 12 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus - powerful devices, but not anymore powerful than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, thanks to its new Snapdragon 888 chipset. Put simply, you're not paying that new-tech novelty tax for going with a foldable device, and even getting a few new design improvements too.

While on initial inspection the Flip 3 may look a lot like its predecessor, it's now featuring a cover display that's four times larger, an upgraded internal screen that's capable of 120Hz refresh rate, and a reinforced hinge that feels a lot sturdier than those on previous Fold devices. Samsung has also ditched the glass outer back design for this new iteration, instead opting for a new 'glastic' design. Some may not welcome that change, but it does mean a cheaper device - and one that's more durable.
