Samsung's latest foldables have been Unpacked, and that means the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is here! Along with the Z Flip 6, pre-orders have already started with both iterations ready to go on sale July 30th, 2024.

Neither phone have seen big upgrades from the fifth generation, but the Fold does have some new AI features - as is the style these days. Along with Galaxy AI features like live translate and note assist, the Fold will also unveil Sketch to Image. You'll be able to crudely draw something using the S-Pen, and the AI app will change it isn't a more detailed piece. Apart from that, the Fold 6 is 15g lighter than the previous model, and has the same camera set up and battery as last year.

If you're already sold on the device, we've pulled together the best pre-order deals, plans, and other buying options for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6.

How to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

Farm to table
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

Just like its clamshell bretheren, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 is available to pre-order directly through Samsung or through the telco of your choosing. Vodafone, Optus, and Telstra are all offering the device on a repayment plan, or you can opt to buy it outright from Samsung.

Either way you'll get some pre-order bonuses if you're fully ready to commit. No matter who you buy from, every Galaxy Z Fold 6 pre-order comes some extra goodies that sweeten the pot.

Optus will give you the Buds3 Pro, but also a Galaxy Watch 6, and a $250 device discount. The discount is calculated over the life of your repayment plan, so if you opt for a 24 month contract you'll pay $10.41 less each month. On 36 month plans that comes to $6.94 less.

Vodafone is offering a $200 discount on the Galaxy Z Fold 6, and an additional $700 of bonus credit if you trade in an old device. That could bring the Z Fold 6 to under $200, which is a solid deal. You'll also get a year of Samsung Care Plus, and new Vodafone customers get three free months of Binge.

Telstra will give you a free Galaxy Tab S9 FE, and $400 of bonus trade-in credit with any phone traded towards the Galaxy Z Fold 6.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 plans

Pick your provider.

Every major telco in Australia is selling the Galaxy Z Fold 6 on a plan, so you can pick from Telstra, Vodafone and Optus. Despite having slightly different pre-order bonuses, the plans all look quite similar. You'll pay for your phone over the course of 24 or 36 months, and you'll get a SIM-only plan on top of that.

Your agreement to buy the Z Fold 6 on a plan is a set contract, so you'll need to make the same repayments from day dot until it is paid off. The SIM-only part of the plan however is contract-free. This means you can change your plan up or down each month if you're so inclined, but it also means your telco can change that plan.

Lately the major aussie telcos have been upping prices each year, so be aware that you may end up paying $2-$4 extra per month for every year you're paying off your phone. Most notably, Telstra's mobile plans will increase in price from late August, so be sure to factor that into your decision making.

Here are how Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 6 plans compare across providers. Psst, we've seperated these out in to 24 and 36 month plans, so just tap the arrow to see which one you want.
