Samsung’s Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the 5G version of the foldable phone that came out earlier this year, is now available for pre-order as an unlockable device on Samsung.com. Prices start at $ 1,499.99, a premium of $ 70 over the previous LTE version. Along with 5G connectivity, that price gives you the slightly upgraded Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. Otherwise, the two phones are almost identical.
Samsung is highly anticipated to announce a number of new devices at its unpacked Galaxy Note 20 event on August 5, including the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The Fold Z is a tablet-sized folding device for sizing of a smartphone, while the Z Flip is a more traditional flip phone device that folds in the middle to make it more compact. Bending Z will reportedly also support 5G. We initially expected the Z Flip 5G to make an appearance on Unpacked before Samsung announced it earlier this month.
If you prefer not to wait, then the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G is available to order now in bronze or gray. The Samsung site says that the phone should start transferring by August 7, at which point it says that the phone will be available in the carrier and Closed from Samsung online versions from AT&T, Best Buy, T -Mobile, Amazon, and Samsung’s own site with the usual trade-discounts. Just don’t panic if you start feeling buyer’s remorse when Samsung announces its new devices next week.
