It’s no surprise that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a very expensive device. But with 5G, a much bigger outside screen, a refined design, and an upgraded camera system, it’s a little surprising that it costs just $20 more than the original model. After all, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra added $200 to its price compared to the Note 10 .
But if you look a little harder you’ll see where Samsung cut corners to keep the price low: the box. Or rather, what’s not in it. With the original Fold, Samsung included two enticing extras to sweeten the $1,980 price tag: a pair of true wireless Galaxy Buds and a Slim Cover with Aramid Fiber. That’s roughly $150 in goodies that you’re not getting with the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
