Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Official Price is PHP 109,990 But There Are Installment Options

When I first wrote about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, I placed my Philippine price guesstimate for it at PHP 100,000 given the device's SRP in the United States.

Last September 15, 2020, I learned at Samsung PH's NDA session that the local price is actually more expensive than that, which frankly didn't really come as a surprise given the model's ultra-premium proposition.

For those who've been asking me about the official SRP of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 in country, I can finally share that it's PHP 109,990.

I know. It's super pricey and it might not be a practical purchase given the pandemic -- but hey, if you have the money for it and you're the type of techy guy or gal who always wants to be at the forefront of innovation, then go ahead and splurge on it. We won't judge. Promise.

Besides, the freebies for those who will pre-order a Galaxy Z Fold2 are rather enticing. For Samsung fans who can afford it, I'm sure these will make you feel like you're getting you're money's worth.

The Pre-Order Period via Samsung Philippines' Online Store is from September 11 to 24, 2020 and those will successfully sign-up for a unit will enjoy a Premium Bundle Freebie worth PHP 47,100 which includes a Galaxy Watch 3 45mm in Stainless Steel, 12 Months Samsung Care+ Card, and e-Voucher Worth PHP 2,000 for a Samsung Leather Cover.

On the other hand, the Pre-Order Period at Samsung Retail Stores Nationwide as well as via Samsung's Network Carriers will be from September 12 to 24, 2020, and through them, buyers can enjoy a Premium Bundle worth PHP 52,100, which include a 2020 53-inch Samsung Crystal UHD Smart TV, 12 Months Samsung Care+ Card, and e-Voucher Worth PHP 2,000 for a Samsung Leather Cover. Personally, I kind of like this bundle more.

My recommended network carrier for the 5G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is Smart Communications largely because the MVP-company currently offers the fastest mobile data speeds in the Philippines based on the most recent data gathered by Ookla.

As of writing, Smart's 5G network can be enjoyed at Ateneo de Manila University campus, Makati CBD, BGC, Ortigas CBD, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, Araneta Gateway, Eastwood City, Trinoma, and Clark Green City. I believe the company is in the process of building more infrasture to bring 5G speeds to more consumers across the country.

You can get Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 bundled with Smart's Signature Postpaid Plans which start at only PHP 999 per month plus additional payment for the foldable device.
