Samsung has recently launched a bunch of their flagship devices, which includes the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 went official in both India and abroad as the most expensive commercial phone this year. The smartphone’s premium foldable design is one of the main reasons for its pricing. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 price in India starts at Rs. 1,49,999. Now, the company has officially revealed the screen repair cost of the flagship device in the US markets.
Going by the official screen repair prices for the device, it is equivalent to getting your hands on a brand new Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro or even the iPhone SE 2020. Similarly, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 screen replacement price is set considerably high as well. The flip phone’s screen repair costs over Rs. 27,000 in India which is equivalent to getting your hands on OnePlus Nord 2 5G. Going by how much the Z Fold 3 screen repair costs in the US market, we can make a couple of assumptions.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Screen Repair Cost
|Model||Inner Display||Outer Display|
|Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3||$479 ( approx. Rs. 35,600)||$149 (roughly Rs. 11,000)|
|Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3||$369 (approx. Rs. 27,400)||$99 (roughly Rs. 7,300)|
Referring to the table above, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 price for primary screen repair is set at $479. Now, this converts to approximately Rs. 35,600 in the Indian market. Now, the secondary screen or outer display repair will cost $149 or roughly Rs. 11,000.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 price for screen repair will cost $369 (approx. Rs. 27,400) for the inner display. Meanwhile, the outer display will cost $99 to repair which is roughly Rs. 7,300. Now, one thing to note here is that both the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 actually cost lesser than their predecessors to repair. However, it is still a significant amount of money and falls on the expensive side of things. This is exactly where Samsung’s Care+ Protection Plan comes in.

Now, if you do not want to go through the hassle of paying the screen repair cost, the company has a solution for you. The Samsung Care Plus protection plan is offering users a free 1 year subscription. This particular subscription covers accidental damage and wait for it, cracked displays well.

You can still get your hands on the Samsung Care Plus plan in India for a price, in case you do not want to pre-book the devices. The Samsung Care price in India is set at Rs. 7,999 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. On the other hand, the Samsung Care price in India for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is set at Rs. 4,799.
