For those in the market for a new smartphone, Samsung provide a great range of credible options to suit all budgets. As we head into autumn (which technically begins on Friday 23 September, fact fans!), the tech titans have released some seriously slick new handsets, from a feature-packed addition to their Galaxy Z Flip and Fold series to the top-selling Samsung Galaxy S22 in a fresh colourway.
The great news is there are plenty of brilliant money-saving offers from Virgin Mobile to celebrate the launch of these new models – and we’ve got all the details below.
Whether you’re pining for a new model, a Samsung stickler, or just a lover of the latest tech, you’ll love our exciting competition, where one of seven slick Samsung products, ranging from tablets to earbuds, is up for grabs.
So what are you waiting for? Read on to find out more!
NEW! Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4
The Galaxy Z Flip4 is light-years away from the clamshell mobiles of the early 2000s. Beautiful, powerful and supremely tough, it’s Samsung’s strongest foldable yet, with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus+ and IPX8 Water Resistance making it capable of withstanding drips, drops, knocks and spills.
The 3,700mAh battery not only charges super-fast (we’re talking 50% in just 30 minutes), it’s seriously long-lasting – so you can power through your day and into the night. And if night just so happens to involve a Big Night Out, you can document the festivities more beautifully than ever thanks to a 12MP ultra-wide camera with bigger pixels to bring details to life.
Nightography mode captures midnight memories in perfect clarity, while FlexCam lets you get experimental with new angles, hands-free selfies and epic group pics. For those all-important self-portraits, use the 10MP selfie camera – or try the rear camera’s quick-shot feature and preview your snap on the cover screen.
What else? You can also send text replies or answer calls via that ingeniously convenient cover screen – or use it to quickly open your Samsung Wallet for safe, secure contactless payments. And a special shout-out has to go to the upgraded processor, which will keep up with anything you throw at it.
The special offers to know
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 is available in Graphite on Virgin Mobile from £40 per month (2GB, unlimited mins and texts) and zero upfront cost. To celebrate the launch, order it from Virgin Mobile before Thursday 29 September and redeem a free pair of Galaxy Buds2 Pro – worth a whopping £219 – with your purchase.
You can also get up to £500 off the new smartphone if you trade in selected devices before Monday 3 October, so don’t hang about.
NEW! Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4
If the Galaxy Z Flip4 feels distinctly playful, the new Galaxy Z Fold4 (which opens vertically, rather than horizontally) is like its more grown-up cousin. Just as tough as the Galaxy Z Flip4, it is lightweight and slimmed-down in every aspect except for the screen. Want to video chat, surf the net and text all at the same time? You can multitask with ease by opening three windows at once. And when you need to go hands-free, simply set the phone down and adjust so you have the perfect view of that 7.6-inch main display – no more propping your phone up and hoping it doesn’t topple over.
But let’s be clear, the Galaxy Z Fold4 still knows how to have fun. A faster, brighter, wider display takes gaming and viewing to a more immersive and impressive level. Unfolding that display offers plenty of space to get creative with a Samsung S Pen, as though you’re drawing, scribbling or painting on the smoothest paper. And the 50MP wide-angle main camera takes vivid, pro-grade photos even in the dark thanks to Space Zoom and Nightography (the rear cameras have been improved, too).
The special offers to know
The Galaxy Z Fold4 is available in Phantom Black on Virgin Mobile from £60 per month (2GB, unlimited mins and texts) and zero upfront cost. For just £3 extra a month, you can also get your hands on a Chromebook laptop to add to your smartphone purchase. And just like with the Galaxy Z Flip4, you can redeem a free pair of Galaxy Buds2 Pro as a gift with your purchase until Thursday 29 September.
You can also trade in selected devices for the Galaxy Z Fold4 before Monday 3 October, to get up to £500.
And you can claim 12 months of Disney+ for free when you buy either a Galaxy Z Flip4 or Fold4 before Friday 30 September.
Samsung Galaxy S22 – now in Bora Purple!
This impressive smartphone now comes in a new colour. Launched last month and available on Virgin Mobile from £33 per month (2GB data, unlimited mins and texts and zero upfront cost), Bora Purple is a pastel lilac shade that feels both calming and optimistic, with metallic aluminium edges providing subtle glamour.
But that pretty exterior doesn’t compromise on durability, thanks to a 6.1-inch Gorilla® Glass Victus+ screen that’s both drop- and scratch-resistant. Other bonuses: that expansive display is bright enough to beat glare, so you can binge-watch Box Sets in the park even on sunny days, and scrolling through your socials will be smoother than ever thanks to a 24Hz - 120Hz Adaptive Refresh Rate. And like the Flip4 and Fold4, the Galaxy S22 is a master at taking breath-taking videos and photos in low light.
Want to get your hands on a sleek piece of Samsung tech? Read on to learn more about the seven prizes up for grabs in our new competition – and keep scrolling for how to enter.
Win one Samsung Tab S8 Ultra (RRP £999)
The Tab S8 Ultra is the largest Samsung tablet. It’s Samsung’s biggest, toughest Galaxy Tab S yet, but that 14.6-inch screen and durability is balanced by an ultra-thin, lightweight design, setting a new epic standard for tablets. The brand new S Pen comes included: use it to snap photos, boost the volume or change slides in a presentation, all without touching your tablet. Get your million-dollar ideas down in Samsung Notes, which can hold memos, sketches and turn handwriting into text, or enjoy the S-Pen’s natural brush feel while drawing or painting in Clip Studio Paint5.
Win one of two Samsung Tab S8’s (RRP £649 each)
The Tab S8 is built to be taken on the go, with a 12MP ultra-wide front camera, 5G and huge battery. That bright 11-inch LCD screen with 120Hz display offers smooth, console-quality performance wherever you are. And that’s not all – transfer huge photos and video files to your phone or PC with ease, and get things done across multiple windows at once. When you’re done, simply snap the S Pen back into the Tab S8 to charge, just like with the Tab S8 Ultra.
Win one of four pairs of Samsung Galaxy Buds2 (RRP £139 each)
Weighing just 5g, the Buds2 are Samsung’s lightest earbuds ever. Dynamic two-way speakers offer rich, well-balanced sound quality, while three mics and unique background noise-cancelling technology enables crystal-clear calls. Enjoy up to 7.5 hours of play time or 3.5 hours talk time before recharging quickly in the accompanying case.
