Smartphone makers that give customers the ability to exchange old smartphones for one of their new devices are not new. But what about trading in two from them? Samsung seems to be formulating a new strategy for the release of its upcoming foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3. Instead of letting you deliver one, the company gives you the option to exchange two of your old smartphones to receive an additional discount.
The information was found in a booking link published by Samsung for the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. As found by Android Police, the website allows users to add two smartphones for exchange, although this offer may be limited to US customers only. By trading two devices, it is expected that one can get one of the upcoming foldable smartphones at a better deal. At the same time, customers can get rid of their old devices, knowing that they will (probably) be discarded through an environmentally safe process. In addition to the trade discount, Samsung also announced that customers booking one of the two smartphones will also have access to exclusive offers, such as 12 months free Samsung Care + and a special pre-order offer.
The Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled for August 11 at 10 a.m. ET / 7AM PT, where Samsung is expected to release the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The two smartphones will continue to be the company’s latest offerings in the fold. space. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC with up to 16 GB of RAM and a 7.6-inch foldable screen. The Z Flip 3, on the other hand, will have a flip design with a 6.9-inch foldable screen. We also expect the company to release the next generation Galaxy Watch 4 series that will run on a new platform supported by Google Wear OS and the new real Galaxy Buds 2 headphones at the event.
