By the way, the repair costs for the original Fold used to be even higher ($600/$140), so there is a trend for the parts to get cheaper. Still, you might want to consider Samsung Care+ – those who pre-order get the first 12 months free, but given the spicy repair costs, you might want to extend that (you can extend up to 3 years total).

The service costs $13 a month and offers some free repairs and a discount on screen replacement, down to $250. Check out your regional Samsung Care+ website for more details.
