Track shipments

Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 pre-orders are on track to ship sooner

It’s only been two days since Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, with a release date set for August 26. However, pre-orders for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 are already starting to move towards shipping. , hinting at an early arrival.

The first pre-orders that managed to escape Samsung’s website day one issues are already making progress in shipping. We’ve noticed over the past few hours that Samsung shut down the ability to cancel pre-orders from its own website, and soon after, shipments are already showing up through FedEx Delivery Manager.

Both Max Weinbach and I see our Galaxy Z Fold 4 pre-orders as ready to ship via FedEx. Even better, the estimated delivery date is August 23, three full days before Samsung’s official release date. It’s not entirely clear if Flip 4 pre-orders are shipping at the same rate – if you’re already seeing your Galaxy Z Flip 4 order shipping, leave a comment below and let us know!

If you pre-ordered a Galaxy Watch 5, it also appears to be shipping early, as Samsung has locked down cancellations for those devices as well.

Early arrivals for new Samsung smartphones, especially when ordered through, are by no means uncommon. But Samsung seems to be moving particularly fast with the release of Fold 4 and Flip 4 pre-orders.

Notably also, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 Bespoke Edition already looks sold out, at least in certain color combinations. This variant won’t ship particularly quickly though, with the four primary colors going to customers first.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 are modest improvements over their predecessors, with improvements in battery life, camera quality, and overall fit and finish. You can read our hands-on with both devices here and check out the rest of our coverage below. Samsung is still offering pre-order bonuses on both devices, including trade-ins worth up to $1,000, free memory upgrades, and more.
