After months of rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 was launched on Wednesday, and you can place your preorder right now. Doing so should get you a new foldable phone on or around Aug. 11, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Order now and you will also benefit from the free storage upgrade offer that’s running at multiple retailers, too.
That means that buying a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 for its starting price of $1,000 will not only get you the latest flip phone but also a full 512GB of storage rather than the 256GB entry-level model. And that isn’t even the end of the story — you’ll also save up to $900 when you trade in your old phone, too.
That special deal is with Samsung itself, and we’re expecting carriers to also offer their own discounts on the hottest new thing in tech. With a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, a larger 3.4-inch outer display and a 6.7-inch foldable inner one, you’re going to get a lot of phone for your money regardless — and a notable upgrade over the older Galaxy Z Flip 4.
What colors does the Galaxy Z Flip 5 come in?
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 comes in a ton of colors, although some are Samsung-exclusive. Every retailer should offer the graphite, lavender, cream and mint colors. But those looking to pick up a new Galaxy Z Flip 5 in gray, blue, green or yellow are going to have to buy direct from Samsung.
How much does the Galaxy Z Flip 5 cost?
The starting price for the Galaxy Z Flip 5, before you add any trade-ins or take advantage of any discounts, read as follows.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 (256GB): $1,000
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 (512GB): $1,120 (currently offered as a free upgrade)
Best Galaxy Z Flip 5 deals
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is on offer at Samsung right now with a preorder bonus netting buyers a free upgrade from 256GB to 512GB of storage. Looking to save some cold, hard cash? Samsung will also give you up to $900 off if you trade in your old phone.
Some examples include the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, with both garnering the full $900 discount. Switching? Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max is also worth $900, while the iPhone 14 Pro will get you $800.
Best Buy is already taking preorders for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 in a few colors and you’ll get the same double-storage deal as if you were buying direct from Samsung. That means you’ll get 512GB instead of 256GB without paying extra.
Best Buy’s trade-in values aren’t as impressive. The retailer will give you up to $800 depending on what you’re handing over. There are other perks, though — a $100 Best Buy gift card and a month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate are also thrown in for free.
Amazon is another retailer offering a free upgrade from 256GB of storage to a full 512GB, but this deal goes one step further. Preorder now and you’ll get a free $150 Amazon gift card thrown in to spend on whatever you like.
That means that you’re saving $270 in total thanks to the gift card and free upgrade combined.
