Samsung recently revealed its new range of foldable phones, smartwatches and earbuds at the latest Galaxy Unpacked event. To everyone’s surprise, Samsung revealed a foldable phone that you might actually be able to afford, the Galaxy Flip3 (plus another you probably won’t). While the new Galaxy Buds2 and the Galaxy Watch4 don’t look drastically different from their previous iterations, the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 might make the strongest case for foldable phones yet.

Telstra Mobile is making that case even stronger by throwing in a bonus 4K smart TV with select Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 pre-orders.

With the original Galaxy Fold’s disastrous launch still fresh in our minds, there’s a healthy amount of skepticism attached to Samsung’s foldable phones and their typically higher price tag don’t help to quell that trepidation. The Flip3’s cheaper price tag ($650 less than last year’s model) makes it crystal clear that Samsung is ready to make its foldables mainstream. To help Samsung in this effort, Telstra is bundling a bonus 2021 Samsung 43-inch 4K Smart TV (RRP$949) when you pre-order a new Samsung Galaxy Z Series 5G handset on a select plan (deal ends 9 September 2021).

How to get the bonus Samsung 4K TV with Telstra

To get the bonus 43-inch Samsung Smart TV, pre-order a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G or Z Fold3 5G on a Medium Upfront plan or higher. Telstra will also chuck in a Telstra TV streaming device at no extra cost.

Essentially, the Samsung 4K Smart TV is available on any Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 plan that isn’t a Small Upfront plan.

Telstra’s Medium Upfront Plan gets you unlimited calls and text, 80GB of data, 30 minutes of standard international calls (to all destinations) and speed-capped endless data instead of excess charges. It also gets you access to Telstra 5G, the most widely available 5G network currently available in Australia.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 128GB model starts at $127.45 per month on a 24-month plan with Telstra. You can choose to go on a plan with more data or opt for the 256GB Z Flip3 5G. Here’s a quick look at Z Flip3 plans through Telstra.

The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is a little more expensive, starting at $169.12 per month on the same Medium Upfront plan for the 256GB model.

But that’s not all…

While the 43-inch Crystal UHD Samsung Smart TV is obviously the headline add-on in this deal, Telstra is also including a fast-tracked Telstra Plus Gold membership (which scores you a Telstra TV streaming device and more perks) and one of the following gift packs of your choice:

  • Galaxy Buds Pro (valued at $299)
  • Accessory Pack: S Pen Pro and Smart Keyboard (valued at $297)
  • Power Pack: Fold Cover, S Pen and Trio Wireless Charger (valued at $278)

Keen? Here’s that list of Telstra plans you can bundle with any Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 or Galaxy Z Fold3 to take advantage of these bonuses.
