In temporary: Samsung is giving prospects who pre-order a Galaxy Z Flip 4 or Z Fold 4 a particular bonus: an NFT. While that is unlikely to incentivize most individuals, it does have some sensible makes use of within the type of reductions at sure retailers.
Samsung has already used NFTs as a pre-order bonus for its gadgets; those that reserved a Galaxy S22 or Galaxy Tab S8 pill forward of time in South Korea have been rewarded with a New Galaxy NFT. The non-fungible token may also be given to prospects who pre-order a Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4.
