How to preorder the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

    Samsung has fine-tuned its flagship foldable. (Say that five times fast.)

    Announced at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked event on Wednesday, the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 updates last year’s excellent Z Fold 4 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and an improved hinge that allows it to close completely flat like a book — no gaps.

    The rest of the Z Fold 5’s specs are carry-overs from its predecessor, as is its starting price of $1,799.99. (To quote Mashable’s Alex Perry, “this is definitely an evolutionary year rather than a revolutionary one for the Z Fold line.”) It may not make for an especially thrilling upgrade, but it’s a nice new default for anyone thinking of buying their first foldable.

    The Z Fold 5 comes standard in phantom black, cream, and icy blue, and in two exclusive colors on gray and blue. It’s officially set for release on Friday, August 11. Here’s where you can pre-order it in the meantime:


    The retail giant will give you a free storage bump to the 512GB model (a $120 value) and a free $200 Amazon gift card when you reserve an unlocked Z Fold 5 there. This is easily the best preorder deal out there right now for shoppers who aren’t trading in their current device.


    AT&T customers get a free storage upgrade whether they pay upfront or on an installment plan, and can get up to $1,000 off by trading in an eligible older device (in the form of 36 monthly bill credits).

    Best Buy

    The electronics store throws in a free storage upgrade, a free $100 gift card, and a free one-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership worth $16.99 (sure!) when you pre-order an unlocked Z Fold 5 or activate one on a Verizon plan. You can get up to $1,000 off with a qualifying trade-in.

    You’ll get the free storage upgrade and up to $1,000 in trade-in credits by pre-order an unlocked Z Fold 5 directly through Samsung — not super exciting unless you’re interested in those two exclusive colorways.


    T-Mobile customers also get a free storage upgrade and up to $1,000 off in the form of 24 monthly bill credits when they trade in a device and add a line on a qualifying Go5G Plus plan.


    Verizon has the same storage upgrade/trade-in/new line offers as its carrier compatriots, but it would probably be wiser to go through Best Buy instead: The retailer is matching those deals for Verizon customers and combining them with the aforementioned gift card and Game Pass freebies.
