You'll find all of this week's best Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals just down below for those looking to save on this still-great flagship foldable. Note that the device is definitely on its way out now thanks to the release of the latest Galaxy Z Fold 5 deals, although stock does remain at a few select retailers. If you're interested, we've rounded up the best remaining deals just down below.
Starting at the heady sum of $1,799 / £1,699, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 debuted at the same price as the previous Fold 3. Needless to say, it's a niche device that's going to appeal to the enthusiast crowd. Although, there are a number of nifty upgrades both externally and internally that lent to the Fold 4 being the most usable, phone-like foldable device yet from Samsung at the time.
A slightly bigger cover display, beefy Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, and upgraded camera system (the same as the excellent Galaxy S22) made the Fold 4 one of the best devices of late 2022. It's fully featured, powerful, and set to be a multi-tasking dream thanks to a number of intelligent software improvements and continued S-Pen support.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, while exceptionally pricey, could just be the device to push high-end foldable devices into the mainstream. As with every iteration, Samsung has gone to great lengths to prove that its flagship foldable device isn't just a novelty but a powerful user-friendly phone with more than a niche use case.
As always with the Fold line, the Fold 4's main selling point is its utterly gorgeous Super AMOLED display, which features an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Samsung has tweaked the design with this iteration, making the cover display 2.7mm wider on the outside, giving a little more space, a less 'narrow' feel, and 6.2-inches of real estate (2316 x 904) when using the device folded. Unfold the device and you'll get a glorious full 7.6 inches of screen real estate with a 2176 x 1812 resolution. Samsung has also slimmed down the hinge on the Fold 3, making the device more svelte when folded while still keeping the novel custom-made sweeping technology inside to keep things clean and running smoothly.
Inside, the Fold 4 packs in a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip with a beefy 12GB of RAM under the hood - in line with the very best flagship devices for late 2022. Benchmarks indicate that the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has around a 10% increase in performance versus the predecessor as well as a 30% increase in power efficiency. Considering the Fold 4 has the same 4,400 mAh battery capacity as the previous Fold 3, this is a welcome upgrade in terms of daily usage.
Where the Galaxy Z Fold 4 slightly falls down on is its camera system - which is the same as the one found on the standard Galaxy S22. While a powerful camera overall, it's not quite as high-end as the top-of-the-line snapper on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which remains the king of Android phone photography as of late 2022.
