For today only (April 7), Telstra is slashing the prices of some of the best handsets currently available, such as Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable devices, Google's Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and Apple's older (but still great) iPhone 12.

Samsung leads the way in the foldable smartphone revolution, with both the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 considered as vastly superior to previous iterations, thanks to their improved hinges, tougher displays and added water resistance. At Telstra, you can save up to AU$250 on the Z Flip 3 and AU$300 on the Z Fold 3 if you make the leap today.

Not looking to KonMari your next phone? You could opt for a traditional non-folding smartphone instead, with up to AU$250 off on 2020's iPhone 12, as well as AU$150 of the Google Pixel 6 and AU$200 off the Google Pixel 6 Pro.

Alternatively, you could skip the new handset and grab a pair of Sony's fantastic WF-1000XM4 in-ear headphones, which we've awarded the coveted Editor's Choice award in our five-star review.

So if you're in the market for a new phone, or the best wireless earbuds you can currently buy, we suggest jumping on these deals as soon as possible, because they will vanish into the ether after today.
