Even though the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is now available at $200 below its predecessor's original cost, you can still expect to pay quite a bit of cash for any of the best foldable phones on the market when they're not discounted. Luckily, there are always a few great ways to save on a new phone for those who know where to look. So if you're hoping to purchase the latest device and maybe even save several hundred dollars in the process, you've come to the right place.

Carrier deals will be the most common offers available immediately upon the release of any new device, but lately, they've become even more enticing than usual. Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 deals can be harder to find, though Amazon and Samsung's websites are typically the best options for those looking to buy their new phone outright.

Trade-in up to four eligible devices when ordering the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 at Samsung, and you'll score up to $900 off its total price in the process! That would bring its cost as low as $25 per month. You'll also receive a free cover (up to a $79.99 value) to protect your new foldable phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is available in four colorways — Phantom Black, Phantom Green, Phantom Silver, and limited edition Thom Browne White — and sleeker, thinner, and lighter than the Galaxy Z Fold 2. It's equipped with a 7.6-inch "Infinity Flex" Dynamic AMOLED 2X inner screen and a 6.2-inch cover screen which both feature a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. Inside is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 with 12GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. And of course, there's the stellar rear triple-camera setup with a 12MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 12MP telephoto lens, along with a 4MP under-display camera and a 10MP cover camera. It even features IPX8 water resistance.

Plus, for the first time ever on the Galaxy Z series, S Pen support has arrived along with two new S Pen models: the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro.
