Everything you need to know about the Galaxy Z Fold 4
Samsung may have somehow made the flip phone cool again but this year's iteration is only a slight improvement.
Revealed at this year's Samsung Unpacked Event alongside an all-new Galaxy Z Fold 4, two new smartwatches and a pair of wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the latest version of Samsung's flexible foldable. As with the Z Flip 4, the Z Fold 4 is an incremental upgrade without many headline features to write home about. But the few hardware improvements it has seen seek to fortify the (sometimes) faulty design inherent to many foldables.
Here's everything we know about Galaxy Z Fold 4's Australian release.
When does the Galaxy Z Fold release in Australia?
From the 2nd of September 2022, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 phones will be available for purchase on a plan and through Samsung's usual retail partners.
Australian's can place their preorders for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 from the 11th of August, and will be eligible for a decent range of preorder bonuses through the Samsung Store, Telstra, Optus and Vodafone until the day before the phone's release (September 1st).
Take a look at the preorder deals available for the Z Fold 4 prior to release.
How much does the Galaxy Z Fold 4 cost in Australia?
