(Pocket-lint) – Samsung’s range of foldable smartphones has proven popular among consumers. Not only do they offer top-end specs, but they are also incredibly compact, making them a great choice for portability.
Best Buy recently launched an amazing deal on the Samsung Galaxy Z series which includes the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, where you can save up to $1,200.
Galaxy Z Fold 4
Announced at the Samsung Unpacked event in August 2022, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is currently on sale at Best Buy for $1,499.99.
The smartphone launched with Android 12 and packs a huge 7.6-inch screen, 2176 x 1812 resolution, a 10MP front-facing camera, and a 50MP rear-facing camera. But, supporting all of that real state is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset – one of the most advanced 5G platforms seen to date.
When folded, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 feels much like any other modern smartphone, albeit a little heavier. But when unfolded, the sheer genius of this phone is on display, offering exceptional performance that’s somewhere in between the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Plus, you can make use of the innovative split-screen setup – work on multiple tasks at once or drag your photos from your phone into Google Drive – whatever you do, it works seamlessly.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs a mere 9.27 ounces, so it’s perfect for taking with you to work, college, or even on your outdoor adventures. And, thanks to its IPX8 rating, this smartphone is waterproof and able to be submerged in water over 1m in depth.
With an RRP of $1,799.99, Best Buy is offering an absolute steal on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. And, you can save even further if you trade in your old handset, like the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which will save you $900.
Galaxy Z Flip 4
If you followed the 90s trend of flip phones, you’ll be amazed by how these phones have transformed. Measuring just under 835cm when folded, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is the perfect pocket phone sporting a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is currently available at Best Buy for just $849.99 and packs the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset – the same CPU as the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It’s compatible with a wealth of voice assistants including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest, Ring, and more.
Capable of recording in 4K, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is also waterproof up to 5 feet deep for around 30 minutes. And, down to its compact size, you can take snaps underwater using the 10MP front-facing camera or 12MP rear-facing camera.
It’s safe to say that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 inherited some of the best traits from the Flip3, but left out the features that simply didn’t work. With a whole new range of colours to choose from, the Flip 4 boasts a matte finish to reduce fingerprints. Also, it still displays the miniature screen on the outside of the phone, when folded, allowing you to send canned responses that work with certain messaging apps. What’s not to love?
Usually priced at $999.99, you can get the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 at Best Buy for just $849.99. Similar to the Fold 4, you’ll also be able to save up to $900 when you trade in a qualifying phone.
