The main obstacle to the eventual popularity of foldable phones is the current cost of these devices, but a big price drop could make Samsung's latest duo that much more tempting.
Amazon's Prime Day deals have slashed the price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 to its lowest ever price, representing a saving of more than $700 over the price it launched last fall.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is also heavily discounted, with a $300 price drop bringing it down to match (but not beat) the lowest price we've seen.
We imagine these deals will sell out quickly, due to the high-profile nature of the discounts. That said, these are expensive phones, even with the price drops, and there may be other Prime Day phone deals for you if you're on a budget.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a foldable 'book-like', meaning it starts out as a standard smartphone and unfolds into a larger tablet-like device.
The Z Flip 3 is the complete opposite: from a standard phone, you can fold it into a smaller, pocket-friendly device.
Both are tempting for different types of users, and we imagine most people know what's right for them just by reading these descriptions.
