@Eshaan The $1000 trade in is well above the current market value of the Fold 2. If you wait, you know that Samsung will probably decrease the amount given for trade in. Also the market value of the Fold 2 will drop. You will probably have to wait for nearly a year before the used market value of the Fold 4 drops below $800.
The current deal on the Fold 4 is a great one AND you get to start using the phone now instead of in a year. You also get a free case and $300 in Samsung credit.
The current market value on the Fold 3 is around $750 so not much of a difference.
I currently have a Fold 3 (which I love) and decided to snap up the deal on the Fold 4. I actually traded in my Note 20 Ultra for a $900 credit. The battery power savings of the new processor, the new thermal dissipation, and bigger camera make it a great deal for me.
My recommendation would be to go with the Fold 4 not a Fold 3 at this time.
Thinking on specs is a very naive way of evaluating anything. And yes, notes had pretty good specs, but what drove the note series was the software that allowed it to work its magic. It is what allowed pen usage, and every other ability within the silicone.
The fold is the same. Heck man, without software, any device, whether phone, car, computer, GPS, anything, is just a pile of pieces..
