After its recent announcements at the August 10th Unpacked event, Samsung’s latest generation of foldable phones are official, and they’re coming out soon. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are promising many refinements to Samsung’s established foldable formula. It remains a two-pronged approach: the cheaper Flip 4 folds in half from a “normal”-sized phone to a tiny device that’s easily pocketable, while the ultra-flagship Fold 4 sits at the top end, expanding from an average-sized phone to a mini tablet. Both models are set to arrive on August 26th, and preorders are now open across retailers and carriers.

As for the phones themselves, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 starts at $999.99 and features a new processor, a larger battery, faster charging, and a main screen with improved durability over the last-gen version. The camera is also inheriting the improved nighttime performance introduced with the Galaxy S22 line, and Samsung is promising the smaller outer display will be more useful than on previous models, allowing you to do more before unfolding.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4, on the other hand, starts at $1,799.99. In addition to the performance benefits afforded by the newer processor, the premium smartphone offers a more durable main screen — one that clocks in at 7.6 inches when unfolded and supports Samsung’s S Pen. When the phone is closed, however, you get a cover screen that’s now about 3mm wider, feeling a little less tall and narrow. The new width is a reduction of the bezels and, overall, the Fold 4 is lighter for easier one-handed use.

Where to preorder the Galaxy Z Flip 4

You can preorder the Z Flip 4 for $999.99 with 128GB of storage in graphite black, blue, pink-gold, or purple at Amazon, Best Buy and directly from Samsung. Most retailers are offering a free storage upgrade to 256GB for the same $999.99 price, saving you about $60, and throwing in a free Samsung cover case. By preordering the Flip 4 from Samsung, you also get a $100 e-voucher to use until October 31st on other Samsung products and accessories, and if you also bundle it with the new Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and a Galaxy Watch 5, that Samsung credit increases to $200.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is available for preorder for $1,799.99 with 256GB of storage in black, beige, or gray-green at Best Buy, Amazon, and directly from Samsung. Though, just like the Flip 4, most retailers are offering a free storage upgrade to the 512GB configuration at the same price — saving about $120. Also, like the Flip promotions, preordering the Z Fold 4 from Samsung gets you a $150 e-voucher to use until October 31st on accessories like the new Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. If you go all-out and bundle the Fold 4 from Samsung with the new watch and earbuds (which will be north of $2,300), the voucher credit increases to $300.

The ultra-flagship Galaxy Z Fold 4 is Samsung’s latest premium phone. It offers a more durable, 7.6-inch inner display as well as an outer 6.2-inch screen that is about 3mm wider than the display found on the last-gen Fold 3.

Carrier promos

  • AT&T is offering new and existing subscribers a Galaxy Z Flip 4 for free and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for $1,000 off when you preorder and trade in any Galaxy phone in any condition. You also get a memory upgrade (e.g, 256GB instead of 128GB) and a Samsung case for free. Keep in mind this deal requires an installment plan, and the discount is given as bill credits.
  • Verizon will give 5G Unlimited plan subscribers up to $800 off the Flip 4 or Fold 4 with a qualifying trade-in, paid back as monthly bill credits for up to 36 months. Also, preordering the Flip 4 or Fold 4 gets you a similar storage upgrade like AT&T’s promo.
  • T-Mobile is offering $1,000 off the Galaxy Z Flip 4 or Z Fold 4 when trading in a qualifying phone or adding a line on its Magenta Max plan. Otherwise, you can get $500 off either phone with a similar qualifying trade-in or by adding a line to select plans. These discounts are paid back via 24 months of bill credits, and the storage upgrades are here, too.

Harley-Davidson’s electric motorcycle brand is about to go public via SPAC

LiveWire has completed its merger with a blank-check company and will make its debut on the New York Stock Exchange today. Harley-Davison CEO Jochen Zeitz called it “a proud and exciting milestone for LiveWire towards its ambition to become the most desirable electric motorcycle brand in the world.” Hopefully it also manages to avoid the cash crunch of other EV SPACs, like Canoo, Arrival, Faraday Future, and Lordstown.

Won’t anyone think of the billionaires?

Forbes reports that rising inflation and falling stock prices have collectively cost members of the Forbes 400 US rich list $500 billion in 2022 with tech tycoons suffering the biggest losses.

Jeff Bezos (worth $151 billion) lost $50 billion, Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin (worth a collective $182b) lost almost $60b, Mark Zuckerberg (worth $57.7b) lost $76.8b, and Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey (worth $4.5b) lost $10.4b. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer (worth $83b) lost $13.5b while his ex-boss Bill Gates (worth $106b) lost $28b, albeit $20b of that via charity donations.

A direct strike at 14,000 mph.

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) scored a hit on the asteroid Dimorphos, but as Mary Beth Griggs explains, the real science work is just beginning.

Now planetary scientists will wait to see how the impact changed the asteroid’s orbit, and to download pictures from DART’s LICIACube satellite which had a front-row seat to the crash.

There’s a surprise in the sky tonight.

Jupiter will be about 367 million miles away from Earth this evening. While that may seem like a long way, it’s the closest it’s been to our home planet since 1963.

During this time, Jupiter will be visible to the naked eye (but binoculars can help). You can check where and when you can get a glimpse of the gas giant from this website.

Missing classic Mario?

One fan, who goes by the name Metroid Mike 64 on Twitter, just built a full-on 2D Mario game inside Super Mario Maker 2 complete with 40 levels and eight worlds.

Looking at the gameplay shared on Twitter is enough to make me want to break out my SNES, or at least buy Super Mario Maker 2 so I can play this epic retro revamp.

The US might still force TikTok into a data security deal with Oracle.

The New York Times says the White House is still working on TikTok’s Trump-era data security deal, which has been in a weird limbo for nearly two years now. The terms are basically the same: Oracle plays babysitter but the app doesn’t get banned. Maybe it will happen now, though?

Edward Snowden has been granted Russian citizenship.

The NSA whistleblower has been living in Russia for the 9 years — first as a refugee, then on a series of temporary residency permits. He applied for Russian citizenship in November 2020, but has said he won’t renounce his status as a U.S. citizen.
