Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deals: Preorder Samsung’s flexible phone NOW

We’ve rounded up the very best preorder deals for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 ahead of its release on 26 August

It doesn’t hit shelves until 26 August, but there are already some attention-grabbing preorder deals for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 from all the UK’s major networks. Alongside bags of 5G-enabled data, many of them include fantastic hardware freebies and even an entire complimentary year of Disney+ streaming.

But why should you bother with these Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deals? Well, it was the worthy recipient of five stars out of five and a coveted Best Buy award in our in-depth review – the highest praise we can bestow – because it improves on its predecessor in all the right places.

As you’d expect, the unique folding design is still in place, with Samsung slightly slimming down the hinge and bezels this year. This is meant to make it easier to hold one-handed, but we didn’t notice much difference in our tests. Elsewhere, you can pick from a range of funky colourways – and even come up with your own style via the personalisation service – and the Flip 4 is IPX8 water resistant, a boon in the great British drizzle.

You’re getting a stonking 6.7in, 2,640 x 1,080 Dynamic AMOLED display on the inside, while a handy 1.9in screen graces the outside. The latter comes with a wealth of new features for 2022, including the ability to respond to messages using a list of pre-set answers, emojis or even text-to-speech. In short, both displays are gorgeous to behold.

The latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is the Flip 4’s engine, leading to a big performance bump, while the battery capacity has been boosted by 12% to 3,700mAh and the impressive camera array is more or less the same as last year. Just note that you won’t be able to expand the 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage via microSD.

All of that adds up to yet another five-star flexible handset from Samsung. In the words of our reviewer Nathan Spendelow, “an ideal blend of price, form factor and performance, there’s a lot to like with this updated model, and if you’ve got the money you really can’t do much better”.

Read on to save money with our list of the best preorder Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deals.

The best preorder Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deals

1. Amazon: The best SIM-free Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal

This is the simplest preorder Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal: the 128GB version of the smartphone in a choice of four hues for £999. As an added sweetener, you’ll get a whole free year of Disney Plus for all of your Star Wars, Pixar and Marvel needs. That would usually set you back £80.

If you’re worried about storage, you can step up to the 256GB model for a reasonable extra £60 (£1,059) and it’s worth looking at Amazon’s trade-in scheme, which could bag you up to £250 off.

If you prefer to buy your smartphones outright and then find a SIM separately, this is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal for you. And, once you’ve bought it, why not check out our roundups of the best SIM-only deals and the best PAYG deals?

2. iD Mobile: The cheapest contract Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal

iD Mobile has a reputation for delivering eye-bogglingly affordable phone contract deals and this is certainly no exception: the 128GB Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 with unlimited 5G-compatible data for a mere £44/mth on a two-year contract, with £99 upfront. You can step up to 256GB of internal storage for an extra £50 upfront, too.

As with the SIM-free deal above, you’ll get a 12-month subscription to Disney Plus (worth £80) thrown in, but this deal comes with an even better freebie: a free pair of four-star Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 earbuds worth £139. By our calculations, that means this preorder Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal will end up saving you a colossal £447 compared to if you bought all of the elements separately. Not bad.

You won’t be compromising on quality, either: we gave iD Mobile four stars out of five in our most recent review, praising its rock-bottom prices, improving 5G performance and range of long or short-term plans.

Contract length: 24 months; Upfront fee: £99; Monthly cost: £44; Lifetime cost: £1,155

3. EE: The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal for streaming extras

EE is the country's fastest mobile network and the worthy winner of four stars out of five in our latest review, along with a Recommended award. It loves bundling in brilliant bonuses and this preorder Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal gets you the 128GB handset with unlimited 5G data for £73/mth (£30 upfront), plus 12 free months of Disney Plus (worth £80) and two years of a Smart Benefit (worth up to £240).

The Smart Benefit can be one of the five following things:

  • A basic Netflix subscription worth £7/mth.
  • An Apple Music subscription worth £10/mth.
  • A BT Sport Ultimate subscription worth £10/mth.
  • A Roam Abroad Pass worth £10/mth, which lets you use your allowances as usual in the EU, US, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.
  • A Video Data Pass worth £10/mth, which means you won’t eat into your data allowance by watching TV or films.

By our reckoning, if you chose any of the £10/mth Smart Benefits, you’d be saving a gargantuan £377 with this deal compared to if you bought all of the elements separately. It’s the perfect preorder offer for content crunchers.

Contract length: 24 months; Upfront fee: £30; Monthly cost: £73; Lifetime cost: £1,782

4. Virgin Mobile: The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal with the lowest upfront cost

If you want the shiny new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 without splashing lots of upfront cash, this is the deal for you. Virgin Mobile is currently offering the 128GB version with 100GB of 5G-enabled data for £60/mth on a two-year plan, with absolutely nothing to pay upfront. And, as a bonus, you’ll get a free year of Disney Plus, which would normally cost £80.

This is far from a false economy: we’ve done the maths and estimate that you’ll be saving at least £119 by going with this delicious deal, compared to if you bought the constituent parts separately.

As for the network, we awarded Virgin Mobile three stars out of five in our latest review, complimenting its solid performance while highlighting its slightly lacklustre customer service. Still, the latter is easy to overlook when you’re getting this much bang for your buck.

Contract length: 24 months; Upfront fee: £0; Monthly cost: £60; Lifetime cost: £1,440

5. Three: The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 deal for switchers

Not only are you getting the 128GB Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 with unlimited 5G data for a competitive £57/mth (£50 upfront) with this preorder deal, but Three has an incredible bonus for those switching to its network: a £100 prepaid Mastercard to spend on whatever you like. And it hasn’t finished there because you’ll also be treated to the standard 12 free months of Disney+, worth £80.

That tots up to a grand saving of £265 compared to if you bought the phone, SIM and Disney+ subscription separately. In our latest Three review, we highlighted the company's excellent range of plans and 5G performance, although there's room for improvement when it comes to customer service.

Contract length: 24 months; Upfront fee: £50; Monthly cost: £57; Lifetime cost: £1,418
