Galaxy Z Fold 2 launch details for AT&T and Verizon in the USA revealed
Samsung has launched the Galaxy Z Fold 2 at Unpacked Part 2 and the new foldable will be available for pre-order in around 40 markets starting today. The USA is one of those markets, but the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will also be released stateside by a couple of US-based carriers including Verizon and AT&T. They’ll offer the device on pre-order terms starting September 2. Here’s what we know so far.
Verizon will offer the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on a 24-month agreement for $83.33 per month. The carrier can slash up to $550 off the foldable phone’s price when adding a new line and trading-in your old smartphone. Existing customers on a premium unlimited plan can get up to $250 when trading a device. Switching to Verizon when buying the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on a 24-month agreement will also grant you a gift card worth $150 which can be used towards the purchase of other products from Verizon.
You can pick the color of the hinge only when buying from Samsung.com
Meanwhile, AT&T will sell the device on a 30-month payment plan for $66.67 a month. Both carriers will offer the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on pre-order terms starting tomorrow and the foldable phone-tablet hybrid is expected to ship to customers beginning September 18. When pre-ordered from Samsung without a carrier agreement, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a full retail price of $1,999. Keep in mind that although the custom hinge service is available in the USA, it’s only accessible when buying the Galaxy Z Fold 2 directly from Samsung.
This is a developing story and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more about carrier availability and pricing. Stay tuned.
