I haven't seen any pre-order thread opened up yet on the forums for the Z Fold 3 so figured it's about that time! Who else is up for constantly refreshing the order page and checking if FedEx slips have been created?

Ordered: 8/15
Items: Z Fold 3 256GB Phantom Green, Watch 4 Classic 42mm Silver, Buds 2, Spen + Case
From: Samsung US website

All items still show 'preorder' on Samsung page and set for delivery 8/30 except for the Watch 4, which shows as 'In Process' and delivery for 8/27. I have a FedEx label created for estimated ship date 8/23 and delivery 8/25, which I'm assuming is the Watch 4.

I haven't been this excited for a phone in a while, looking forward to tracking the progress with everyone!

Order Date: 8/15 (after canceling my 256gb because the app gave preorders 512gb for free as of 8/15)
Expected Delivery: 8/27
Items: Galaxy Z Fold3 5G 512GB (Unlocked) Phantom Black
Galaxy Watch 4 Classic 46mm Silver
USB 35 Watt Duo (Samsung App Gift)

No labels in FedEx yet. Do you think something is wrong? Should I go to FedEx today and just camp out for a week? What if they didn't get the order? What if my order has covid? Can't wait to hear all the noise next week when T-Mobile ships theirs and Samsung still hasn't shipped unlocked. Oh I do so love this time of year!

Yea i preorder day 1.
FedEx app has a tracking number but its just label created.

I did happen to go back and order a s pen fold which will be here tomorrow.

Bit as samsung has always done. They will start shipping the day before release.

Pre-ordered 8/15, my work had a 10% discount for us on the Samsung store so that saved me a cool $200, plus still got the extras.

Fed Ex tracking already up, says expected delivery 8/24 but that'll change for sure. Can't wait!

How do some of you get tracking numbers? Maybe because i did not order from Samsung?
I did and no tracking number yet. Ordered 8/15. I think that they're than likely have pallets that hit a point in distribution where they are tagged for shipping. As QTYs are available for certain regions, you get early tracking. The rest get it the same time, just behind the other ready to tag one's.

Pre oder August 11 and still says processing already charged my account 4 days ago paid in full,still says August 27. I'm from California. Order the unlock version. On a side not last year my fold did not get out until the official launch date September 18. Usually I oder my phones with Verizon, they tend to always send phone like 5 days before launch date

Sign up to fedex home delivery.
It will let you know when you have a oackage coming.

I have my tracking number already. 2.0lb for the bundle i got.
Eta aug 27th.
But no word from samsung or movement.

Basically when they make your order they make a tracking number also and it goes into fedex system.


Oh and my s pen fold did come today. Feels nice

So I ordered and money was taken out of my account right away. I did save my order number but no order info in my account. I have to search for it. I did contact live chat and they said i was going to receive something by the 17th, that didn't happen in which i didn't expect it to. No order update yet just an email this morning saying my order was still on track to be received by the 27th

I got a mysterious email today that said it was an update for one of the items on my order ####, and to check my order online and that it will deliver on the date stated there. I did nothing to spark that.
Date says 8/27 for the watch and the phone. Odd but that too might be automated for those without tracking #'s after a certain amount of time

    This is normal for them. Happens every time, they schedule a pick up date where FedEx will come pick up the pallets of phones. Probably within the next 24-48 hours anyone with a label should see movement. Usually arrives 1-2 days before estimated, depending on where you live. Just remember that the 27th was the promised date, so anything earlier is awesome.

    For me, mine is processing but eta is SEP 10, so remember me when you guys are playing with your phones lol
    I'll give it an extra slow fold just for you brotha! Haha

    I would bet this is all a combined GTM strategy for them. Makes sense. In Europe, you don't have as many units going out the door and the warehousing and logistics is smaller. Release the phones and get the web a buzz. Then take the first preorder people and give them the phone earlyish (2 days or 1 day ahead), makes them feel special and even more just before launch day buzz. Then launch and we all realized how much we spent but it's too late, haa.
    I got my fold 3 9 days earlier. On my order it said expected arrival 27th August. Yet samsung sent it on 17th and it arrived for pickup at 18th. So I'm lucky samsung gave green light in Sweden.
