Does Samsung.com/us ship to united Kingdom because they have way better deals I got an email saying you can trade my flip 3 for $700 and the fold 4 cost $799 at 512GB but I don't know if they ship to uk that's a way better deal than the UK does. BTW the email takes me to the American website even tho I am in the UK.

The US phones won't have a working 5G here in the UK.
Also check the network bands it works on to make sure it will work properly on you network.
The deals you see don't include sales taxes, and quite often come with a carrier package.
I really doubt they would ship directly to the UK.
Even if they did, you would expect to pay export/ import charges as well
You be better off trying to find a third party company that specialises in importing and exporting electronics equipment like phones.
I always found it too much trouble importing phones sometimes, you'd need to do you homework on the retailer to make sure they operate properly

Yea us phones will have working 5g here in UK. All phones have all the 5g bands. But you will need to find a sd firmware that's unlocked. All USA phone firmware are locked to carriers

The US 5G network works on a different wave band and have different antennas
It's possible if the network provider is working on a close enough wavelength, you may get some sort of service.
But probably not what you'd get with a European device

But the devices have all the 5g bands within the firmware. You need a unlocked (none carrier firmware) to unlock the bands. Carrier firmwares lock the device to a 5g band. A unlocked firmware does not have a network band lock.

All 5g bands are the same all around the world. The FCC made a standard 3g,4g and 5g bands the same around the world mostly all phones are sold as unlocked now so the must be able to use all bands. USA is slightly different all phones are locked to networks in the USA.
