Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the best phone/tablet hybrid you can buy, but price is its main sticking point. Most people simply aren’t willing to pay $1,800 or more, even if it can replace two devices.
However, Samsung’s early Black Friday sale makes it much more appealing. The company is offering $450 off all three models in the US, meaning the new starting price is just $1,349.99. That brings it in line with many high-end flagship phones.
If you’d rather more storage, the 512GB model is down to $1,469.99 from its usual $1,919.99.
Then there’s the 1TB version, which now costs $1,709.99. For context, that’s $80 less than the RRP of the model with a quarter of the storage.
The same discount applies to all three four colours of the Z Fold 4, although you’ll have to wait longer for some to be delivered.
You might also notice that trade-in offers are selected by default. Any Samsung Galaxy device will get you an extra $300 discount, but you can get up to $1,000 off if you trade in an eligible phone, tablet or watch.
However, it’s important to note that these deals expire at the end of tomorrow, 18 November. It’s not clear what the price will be after that, but Amazon’s $350 off is currently the next best price.
In the UK, there are only trade-in discounts if you go direct to Samsung. Instead, you can get an impressive £560 off the 512GB model, £520 off the 1TB variant or £200 off the 256GB version at Laptops Direct.
In our review of the Z Fold 4, we praised its display, rear cameras and battery life. The introduction of Android 12L makes the software experience much better (despite some missing app support,) so it’s a great choice unless you want to take lots of selfies or need fast charging.
Price was one of its big drawbacks, but these deals make the device a realistic option for lots more people.
