Samsung’s latest foldables are up for pre-order, and regardless of where you decide to buy it through you’ll get a free storage upgrade. Meaning if you buy the 128GB Z Flip 4 you’ll get the 256GB version at no extra cost, or the 512GB Z Fold for the price of the 256GB. 

Free storage is a plus, but each telco has its own unique pre-order deal offering either a free Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Tab A8, or Samsung Trio Wireless Charger. Here are how the plans and treats compare across the major telcos.

Vodafone: Free Samsung Trio Wireless Charger + up to $700 bonus trade-in credit

A free charger is all around a “meh” deal, but the standout from Vodafone is the bonus trade-in credit. If you trade in an old phone you’ll get $500 extra on top of the trade-in value to go towards the Z Flip 4, or $700 towards the Z Fold 4.

Vodafone will let you trade-in S-series phones all the way back to the Galaxy S10 and the Note 8. Without the extra credit this would give you $140 or $80 to go towards your new phone, but with the bonus credit you could save up to $840 or $780, respectively.

If you’ve got your eye on a foldable then it might be time to rummage through your drawers and see what phones you’ve got laying around.

Telstra: Free Galaxy Watch 5

Whichever phone you choose, Telstra will add on Samsung’s latest wearable - the Galaxy Watch 5 - for free.

If you order the Z Flip 4 you’ll nab the 40mm Galaxy Watch 5 (RRP $599), or if you opt for the Z Fold 4 you can pick between the 40mm or the 44mm (RRP $649) models.

Optus: Free Galaxy Tab A8 (4G)

Optus has a solid pre-order deal of its own, throwing in a bonus Galaxy Tab A8 (4G) valued at $529. The Tab A8 is a midrange tablet in Samsung's family, first announced in December last year. The model you'll get features a 10.5-inch display, an eight-core processor, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 7,040mAh battery.
