It’s been over a year since the Galaxy Z Fold 4 first hit shelves, and it’s getting pretty tough to find this previous-gen Samsung foldable in stock. Most carriers and retailers have switched their focus over to the new Z Fold 5, which you can snag for as much as $1,000 off right now. Frankly, you’re much better off upgrading to the latest model — which is more advanced and affordable — but if you have your heart set on the 2022 Z Fold 4, we’ve rounded up the best (and only) ways to get your hands on one for less right now below.
This story is part of Samsung Event, CNET’s collection of news, tips and advice around Samsung’s most popular products.
The Z Fold 4 is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor and backed by 12GB of RAM. Plus, the book-style foldable has been redesigned with a slimmer, more durable hinge and lighter overall weight. There’s a 6.2-inch outer AMOLED display and a 7.6-inch inner AMOLED display, both of which offer a 120Hz refresh rate. One huge upgrade comes in the camera department, with an array that now includes a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera.
What colors does the Galaxy Z Fold 4 come in?
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is available in gray-green, phantom black and beige. There’s also a burgundy model that’s exclusive to Samsung’s online store.
How much does the Galaxy Z Fold 4 cost?

Best Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals
With a new Z Fold model officially available, deals on the previous-gen Z Fold 4 are starting to taper off. Below, we’ve rounded up the best Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals still available so you can take advantage of them before they’re gone.
While Samsung is offering up to $990 off unlocked models of this previous-gen foldable with an eligible trade-in, the only device that will net you that much is the newer and more advanced Google Pixel Fold. Unless you’re looking to downgrade, chances are you’ll be getting a discount of around $200 with the trade-in of an older device from Apple, Google, Samsung and other brands. Plus, the unlocked 256GB model is completely sold out, so prices now start at $1,920 for the 512GB model — which is only available in burgundy.
However, both AT&T and Verizon customers will save $800 on select colors of the 512GB model — with no trade-in required — which drops the price down to just $1,120.
You can still find the Z Fold 4 in stock at Best Buy, where you can snag an unlocked model for $180 off, dropping the starting price down to $1,620. Plus, Best Buy has its own trade-in program where you can save even more in exchange for your old phone from Apple, Samsung and many other brands. And if you’re a Verizon customer, you can snag this previous-gen Samsung foldable for $700 off, which drops the price down to $1,099 or $30.55 per month for 36 months. Just note that there’s a pretty limited number of configurations still available
Verizon isn’t offering any discounts on the Z Fold 4 itself, but you can save $170 on a Samsung Galaxy Watch, $400 on a Google Pixel Watch 2 and grab a free a Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE 5G when bundled with the purchase. Just note that you’ll need a new line of service for these devices to get the discount. Plus, Verizon customers who switch their existing number over from another carrier will get a free $200 gift card.
Like Samsung, Verizon is sold out of the 256GB model, so prices for this previous-gen foldable now start at $1,920 for the 512GB model, which is only available in phantom black.
