Is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 available unlocked?

After months of speculation and rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has finally been unveiled officially. For fans of the company’s foldables, it’s an exciting time. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is thinner and lighter than its processors, plus it brings improvements like an under-display camera and a more durable build all around. But if you’re looking to buy it, it’s important to know your options. Like most phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is available from carriers like Verizon, but what if you want an unlocked version?

Well, you’re in luck, as Samsung sells the Galaxy Z Fold 3 unlocked, too. Buying an unlocked phone means you can use it with any carrier without having to pay to unlock the phone. If your carrier isn’t selling the phone directly, or if you want to switch carriers at some point in the future, you can keep your phone without having to worry. If you’re interested in financing options, Samsung offers those directly too, which means no need for carrier contracts.
