Z Fold 3 inner screen cracked

I bought a new Z Fold 3 around 2 months ago. I never dropped the phone and carefully use it all the time since I heard about how fragile the inner screen is. However, last week, I folded the phone and went to sleep, then unfold in the morning and found that the screen was cracked. I created a repair ticket and set the phone to Samsung Repair Center, and they want to charge $519.59. I called the customer care and was sent back and forth between repair center and case management, and they basically said either pay for the fix or cancel the fix. They even said: even if this is a manufacturer defect, you'll have to pay for inner screen crack anyway. I'm not in return window anymore, so I guess my only choice is to pay for the fix? Kindly suggest.

I think u can add Samsung care + first then there would be almost no charge. The care + can be purchased within one year via Samsung member APP
