Yes in the past it can arrive earlier when getting unlocked devices not tied to any carrier financing, etc.
Usually around the time the cancel button disappears a fedex tracking number shows up in the fedex shipping manager. Personally, hate the wait! Apple is a week from order to delivery. But two weeks. Haven't noticed the ship dates slipping (yet). Either they have ample supply or demand is lower. I would bet on the latter.
512GB Fold 4 Burgandy (unlocked) & Watch 5 Pro ordered on samsung website. The only ETA listed is for the watch on August 26. They said it's 3 to 4 weeks for the phone but not listed at all on the order. Hopefully it will be sooner but I may have shot myself in the foot wanting a non-standard color. :-( USA
Samsung must really want to sell the fold4 because when I opened up the shop and saw how much it would cost me to upgrade from the 3 to 4 with their discounts plus an almost free watch4 and buds for literally less than $800. I feel like they're pushing too hard for barely any actual hardware upgrade
Fold 4 512GB in grey/green, Watch 5 Pro, B2P all showing "In Process" and cancel button is now gone but still showing estimated delivery of 8/26 of course. US bound. My order for the Slim Standing case which was ordered separately will arrive tomorrow.
Perordered green, watch 5 pro, B2p, all showing 'in process', expected on Aug 26. But today I got a message from bank, my payment is canceled by Samsung. Bank confirmed they didn't do anything. The order status looks normal on the My Order page. Has anyone had this experience before?
My Order says in Process - it says that Expected Delivery is currently August 26th. For what it's worthr, if the past few launches are any indication for how this launch will be handled, I expect my phone to be shipped around August 22nd. (monday) If that happens, I hope to have my Galaxy Z Fold4 by around August 23rd or 24th.
Used FedEx advanced tracking and found that my fold 4 label was canceled by Samsung. What does this mean? I already have a case on the way now. The phone, watch, watch band, and s pen case haven't shipped. Nothing charged to my bank account yet except the case that is in shipment. What could this canceled label possibly mean? I've pre-order ever Samsung flagship phone but have never seen this. Help please
I ordered 512GB unlocked, black. No accessories. Ordered Wednesday morning. FedEx site shows shipping Friday 8/19, and delivery Tuesday 8/23. 2-day delivery. I live in the Dallas, TX metro area, which is where the Coppell, TX shipping center is located. Typically receive Samsung shipments next-day, so It'll probably arrive Monday 8/22.
Mine showed up about 2 hours ago too.
They typically ship FedEx 2 Day.
If you live in a one day zone for ground you *may* get it the next day but not guaranteed. Everyone else, the second day.
These will most likely by physically picked up by FedEx on Friday the 19th and everyone will have it on Tuesday the 23rd. That is the advantage from buying direct rather than from a carrier or retailer like Best Buy. I even had a (Best Buy) preorder that did NOT get delivered on release day! And that was my last too.
Update. My initial FedEx label from Samsung was one of the cancelled but as of this afternoon there are now two new labels from Samsung both showing an expected delivery of 8/23 just as they were before. One shows dimensions of 15x7x9 inches and 1lb, the other is 9x5x6 inches and 2lbs and requires a signature. Fold 4, Watch 5 pro, buds 2 pro, and s-pen case all on the order. US order.
