[Pre Order] Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 $2399.20 Delivered ($2349.20 with Newsletter Voucher) @ Samsung Education & EP Portal

880

Proof: RRP is $2999

Whether its worth it or not is up to you. I'm just posting the deal which represents a 22% saving off RRP ($649.80) on day 1.

You needs to subscribe to the newsletter to get the $50 off voucher.

No pre-order bonus but I'll take the instant saving over "free" buds.

Access to the education portal via an edu.au email address.

With the massive depreciation in Samsung devices, I'm finding a lot of value in a second hand Fold 1 at ~$1200-1500 mark. This puts it in the ballpark of other normal phone flagships and represents a 50-60% saving from launch. I have found it to be an amazing device which has replaced my smartphone and iPad Mini.

The new fold is undoubtedly better in almost every aspect but in my opinion doesn't fundamentally change how you use the device nor take away from its predecessors strengths (massive screen, foldable pocket device, great battery life). The software updates will also filter down to the OG fold.

This will be the cheapest price for a while I suspect. Last year the Fold 1 never made it to the EPP. Good luck for those buying :)

    Amazing thank you!

    I can't find it to add to cart, am I missing something?

      It's the first thing in their front page. See my screen shot.

      • Cheers had to clear cache. I had been checking every day (besides today of course). This thing is going to be a beast, now to get Samsung insurance somehow

        • Have you figured out how to get insurance? I'm not too keen on making the leap without it tbh.

        • +1

          Do you mean Samsung Care+? Can buy direct from here by the looks, and the banner at the top says 50% off Care+ cost with eligible Fold 2.

          • @Forphucsake: What is the benefit of care+? Doesn't the warranty cover Device swap if that is all care+ offers?

            • +1

              @nadan: Warranty doesn't cover damage you caused like a broken screen from dropping it or liquid damage etc

              • +1

                @Forphucsake: Definitely, the details of care+ wasn't very clear hence I asked.

      I'll accept just one as a finder's fee. Sounds like you can afford it? :)

  • How much is Note 20 Ultra now in EPP?

    • Education store: still $1599.20 / $1759/20 for 5G models. Just no bonus.
      4G Ultra is still $1479.20

    I have bought one. Since it has sd865+ and local warranty for 2399 you get a phone plus tablet.

    • Anyone know it’s single sim or dual? It doesn’t really matter but it would be a bonus if it’s dual

      • Single physical plus an Esim. Same everywhere worldwide.

        • thanks mate I finally can get rid of iphone

    • +4

      2399 you get a phone plus tablet

      For $2399 you can get both a very capable phone and a very capable tablet as is though lmao

      • +5

        But then you have to carry 2 device. I can understand why some people would want the folding phone, I for one would like one too when the folding display tech is more mature, that's the price they pay for being early adopters I guess.

        • Considering how well the first one went I don't mind having to carry two devices.
          I've got a 2-in-1 PC/tablet plus my phone.

          This isn't going to replace my laptop any time soon.

          • +3

            @pennypincher98: This isn't meant as laptop replacement, it's a phone with huge display.

            • @Jackfruit: For me personally I don't see the point in having two half-tablets lol but I guess the market must be there otherwise they wouldn't make it.

          • @pennypincher98:

            Considering how well the first one went I don't mind having to carry two devices.

            The first one was actually fantastic after they resolved the initial issue. I can't ever return to the candybar form factor after using the Fold.

            I don't see the point in having two half-tablets

            It's not too dissimilar from buying the iPad mini vs iPad Pro. It's all about the form factor.

        • Its a compromised phone and a compromised tablet especially that aspect ratio besides being fragile.

          • @dealsucker: It really isn't. It may seem like it from photos, but, in practice, the aspect ratio is just as useful as a standard tablet. I preferred using the cover display, as it was easier to hold and use one-handed—a usability advantage I thought we had long lost.

            Regarding fragility, I used it like my previous devices, and it was fine.

            Obviously, if you tend to abuse your devices, then yes it's not a wise purchase (at least without a strong case)

            • -2

              @itsfree: I tend to keep my devices for 3-4 years now and so I am still not convinced of the long term reliability besides its too thick to be carrying the pocket. Samsung's software support is pretty terrible too both time to update and the number of updates. I'd rather have a phone and a tablet.

        While we're comparing apples and oranges….here's a banana - for $2399 you can also buy quite a competent roadworthy motor vehicle (looking at CarSales.com.au)

        • Tell us when we're able to browse OzBargain without straining our eyes on said roadworthy motor vehicle.

          • @jkim: Print pages from OzBargain onto A3 or A4 sheets. Stick on dashboard. BOOM!

            Alternatively, buy a $2000 car and a $400 phablet. BALLER!

      • +1

        Well, I rather have early adopters to subside future price and advancement of folding phones in future. I look forward in 3 to 5 years folding phone will become cheaper.

  • It's not letting me pre order the fold 2. It does give the option to pre order for all the other devices. Has it already been sold out for preorder?

    • I had to use PC, wouldn't off my phone.

      • Can you also help me? I don't have access to EPP?

      • I'd like to hear what ca be done as well.

        My issue is a lack of pen and we get the gimped 256GB model and Asia gets 512 :( but it is one tasy product and I may be tempted depending on what can be done. At full retail, nope..

    Just missing the s-pen to complete the whole experience of the Note. Maybe the Z Fold 3 will have it.

    • May be the so called flexible glass is not durable enough for pens, though back in palm PDA eras all screens have no glass but pressure sensors…

      • +1

        The folding digitisers are not durable enough for the pen support.

    • More importantly mSD card slot?

      All my smartphones since 2001 had SD extension.
      They don't have effective Foldable digitiser for the S-pen.

  • Edit: I can't add to cart via mobile, had to off desktop.

    PS: umm how do I get Samsung care though?

    • purchase separately at a samsung store or you can do it post purchase online: https://rg2.samsungcareplus.com/au#!/

            • @Andstar: There is no buds that is why all Edu or EPP is cheaper, you can add Samsung Care Plus

              • @lufee: Cheers, the Samsung Care Plus isn't available on the Edu store with the Fold z 2 unfortunately.

    Nearly pulled the trigger at A$2340.20 until I saw Singapore Samsung is selling at S$2888 (AUD & SGD ~ parity), with additional freebies:

    1. FREE Galaxy Watch3 Bluetooth (45mm) worth $698 when you buy Galaxy Z Fold2 5G.
    2. Get free 4 months of YouTube Premium
    3. Galazy Z Premier Service ($399 add on in Au as Samsung Care+)

    Decision, decision…

    • Galaxy Z Premier Service is included with all Z devices and it covers screen damage in the first year only.
      Samsung Care+ is a complete device swap twice in two years and costs extra.

      https://www.samsung.com/au/support/galaxy-fold-premier-servi...

    • Dont forget 4% foreign conversion fee and no warranty in Oz

      • Samsung charges foreign conversion fee? I thought one would use Ozbargain's favourite credit cards that don't charge transaction fee.

    • Also should it ever require repair Samsung australia won't even touch it even for out of warranty repairs because it's overseas model.

  • What is the price on NAB EPP…..Any NAB guy can help here?
    NAB EPP has been cheapest for me so far

    • Same price.
      i.e. $2,399.20
