The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 are now officially available to preorder and there are some superb deals to check out today if you're looking to pick up one of these stunning foldable flagships. 

I've rounded up all of the best Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 preorder deals below for our readers in both the US and UK. Regardless of which device you're looking for, there are currently some good options - although most are tied to the usual trade-in criteria that we've come to know and expect over recent years.

A couple of notable options include a massive trade-in rebate of up to $1,200 off at both the official Samsung Store and AT&T on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 - one of the best trade-in rebates we've ever seen. As a preorder bonus, you can also get upgraded storage, which is a handy bonus that's always going to be useful. Over in the UK, the trade-in rebate is only £640 off at the official Samsung Store, but there is a free case up for grabs too.

If you were lucky enough to have reserved your device over the past week or so, then you'll get that promised extra $50 / £50 discount at the official Samsung Store, on top of the other available deal. If this is the first you're hearing of the reservation campaign - make a note for next time as it's a handy little promotion that Samsung usually posts a few weeks ahead of its Samsung Unpacked keynote event.

Samsung's opening preorder deal on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is one of the strongest promotions we've ever seen from the retailer. Not only are you getting a great bonus in the form of a free storage upgrade, but the maximum trade-in rebate of up to $1,200 is the highest yet on any phone. It's a good thing it's a great rebate too, as this new foldable device costs $100 more than its predecessor.

Quite possibly the best big carrier preorder deal on the new Galaxy Z Fold 6, AT&T is also offering record-breaking trade-in rebates on the new foldable. Right now, the possible $1,100 discount here is actually the best on the entire AT&T site - and the carrier is also offering the option to bundle in a Galaxy Tab A9+ tablet and new Galaxy Watch 7 for just $0.99 each. Note, however, that you will need to pay for accessory cellular lines separately.

Verizon's opening Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 deals are uncharacteristically a little soft. Specifically the maximum trade-in rebate of up to $800 off isn't one of the better options we've seen from the carrier in recent months. Usually, you get up to $1,000 off the big flagships so this one isn't a record-breaking deal by any strecth of the imagination. You do, however, get that free storage upgrade here, which equates to about $200 extra in value.

Best Buy is another solid option for unlocked deals on the new Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Flip 6 this week. Firstly, you'll get yourself a handy $300 gift card from the retailer, which is always useful to have considering Best Buy has a massive inventory. On top of that, you can also trade-in for a discount of up to $750, which equates to a really decent price cut considering this deal is for unlocked devices.

Both freebies here are worth around £100 so you're getting a decent amount of added value.

The latest devices have had price hikes across both territories, except for the Flip 6's starting price in the UK. To date, these are the priciest foldable flagships yet from Samsung, although they do carry some decent upgrades that could justify that bump in costs. 

If you can, we'd obviously recommend trading in or using the above deals as there are some superb ways to cut that price tag right down to size this week.

What's new?

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6

  • Latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset
  • 2,600 nits display
  • Revised design on the Fold 6
  • Upgraded 50MP camera on the Flip 6

Both of Samsung's latest foldable flagships feature the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which is the same excellent processor that powers the Galaxy S24 series. In short, you can expect blazingly quick performance with both devices across a range of applications - including those utilizing AI. 

The Samsung Galaxy Fold 6 is noticeably lighter and thinner than the Fold 5, with a more squared-off design around the outer bezels. It has a brighter 2,600 nits display with 120Hz refresh rate. Camera-wise, it retains last year’s 50MP main wide and 10MP 3x optical zoom camera but has an upgraded 12MP ultrawide and sensor that's supposedly better equipped for low-light situations. 

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 design remains largely unchanged aside from some minor aesthetic additions to the camera housing. It does, however, now feature an IP48 dust and water resistance rating, which is better than its predecessor's water-only rating. The screen size and form factor remain unchanged versus the 5, but the display now has 2,600 nits max brightness. Perhaps the biggest upgrade is the new 50MP main camera, which offers a significant bump in resolution versus the 12MP on the Flip 5.

Arguably the most notable improvements come in the form of software - specifically AI integration. These touch on many areas, from photography, image and video editing, to cross-language conversation. Depending on your proclivities these could be pretty gimmicky, but most have the potential to be extremely useful. Note, however, that some features are cloud-based so you'll need a cellular connection to use them.
