The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are finally official, and as expected, major carriers like AT&T have announced their pre-order deals. For those looking to upgrade to a Samsung flagship phone, pre-ordering the devices before they actually go on sale is a great way to get massive discounts and special offers that wouldn’t normally be available. While Samsung does continue to offer discounts and trade-ins on its official website, those pre-ordering the device can usually get more benefits.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 don’t bring in many upgrades over their predecessors, but they do come with some key changes. The most significant is the processor, which is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip on both devices, bringing in notable performance improvements over the previous generation models. The new foldables are also lighter, thinner and more durable than their predecessors. Most significantly, Samsung has kept the price of the new models the same as last year – while the Fold 4 starts at $1,799, the Flip 4 is priced at $999 onwards.
While Samsung fans might be happy to know there’s no price bump this year, AT&T users get several additional benefits while pre-ordering the new devices. The most notable deal is that Samsung users can get the Galaxy Z Flip 4 for free or the Galaxy Z Fold 4 at a $1,000 discount when they trade in a Galaxy phone. This doesn’t have to be a specific model – it can be from any year and in any condition. That means users can trade in any Galaxy A, Galaxy S, or Galaxy Z series phone and get the Flip 4 for free. With the offer, the Fold 4’s price comes down to $799, which is a fantastic deal.
Apart from this, customers who pre-order the new Galaxy foldables can get a free memory upgrade for the same price. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 comes with 8GB RAM and now offers up to 512GB of storage. The Fold 4 on the other hand comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage. To put this in perspective, those who pre-order the 1TB Fold 4 will get it at the same price as the 512GB variant. Additionally, pre-order customers will also get a free Samsung case with their purchase.
AT&T is also offering pre-order deals on the new Galaxy See models. While there isn’t a discount on the launch price (the Galaxy See 5 and See 5 Pro cellular variants start at $329.99 and $499.99, respectively), users who buy one watch will get up to $430 off on a second model. This means that buyers can get a second Galaxy See 5 for free, or get a big discount on the Pro model.
The AT&T pre-orders open on Aug. 10 at 9 a.m. ET and continue until Aug. 25. Starting Aug. 26, all the new Galaxy models will be available online and in stores. While AT&T doesn’t have many pre-order deals for the new Samsung foldables, the ones it does have are quite attractive, so buyers should make use of them while they’re available.
