Samsung’s next Unpacked event kicks off on August 10, and leaks, rumors, and even the event’s “unfold your world” tagline are pointing towards the unveiling of Samsung’s latest foldable large screen, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
It is rumored to be coming alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the upgraded Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and a new pair of Galaxy Buds.
While pre-orders aren’t live yet, it’s already possible to pre-order the foldable big screen at a discount — as long as you’re in the US at least.
We describe everything you need to know to get your hands on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 here, but we also cover the pre-orders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the pre-orders of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 separately for those interested.
We also cover the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 rumors for those who have yet to catch up on what’s in store.
When will the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 come out?
It is largely expected that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be unveiled at Samsung’s Unpacked event, which will be confirmed on August 10, 2022 at 9am ET/6am PT/2pm BST.
If announced, it will likely be pre-ordered immediately with a release a few weeks later – that was the case with Z Fold 3’s 2021 release anyway. The Z Fold 3 was announced on August 11, 2021 and released on August 27, and it’s likely we’ll see something similar this time around.
How much will the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 cost?
Nothing has yet been revealed about the potential price of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, but it’s safe to assume it will cost a similar amount to the current Galaxy Z Fold 3.
For reference, here’s how much the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will set you back right now:
256GB: $1,799/£1,599/€1,799/₹149,999512GB: $1,899/£1,699/€1,899/₹157,999
There’s always the possibility that Samsung will lower the price with the upcoming model – it has cut the price of the Z Fold 3 by $200 / £200 compared to its predecessor, and lowering the price further will no doubt help Samsung to units of its latest foldable, but that has yet to be confirmed.
