Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip 5G today. It understandably didn’t wait until the August 5 Unpacked event because this isn’t exactly a “new” device. The handset is almost identical to its LTE sibling with the exception of two major differences.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is only going to be sold in markets where 5G networks are available. You can count the United States among those markets. Samsung has now confirmed the Galaxy Z Flip 5G price and carrier availability for customers in the United States.
Galaxy Z Flip 5G gets a slight price increase
There’s a $70 price difference between the LTE and 5G variants. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is priced at $1,449.99 in the United States. AT&T and T-Mobile, two of the largest carriers in the country, are going to sell the device. It will also be available unlocked from Samsung’s website, Best Buy and Amazon in Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze colors.
Samsung offers an incentive to customers who purchase the handset through its website. They can get up to $650 for a limited time towards the purchase of a Galaxy Z Flip 5G by trading in an eligible device. The carrier and retail partners may also have their own offers for the device. Customers will get access to the Galaxy Z Premier Service and Concierge Support, the white-glove service that provides premium customer support.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is going to be released in the United States on August 7, 2020. Pricing and availability details for other markets will be confirmed in due course. The LTE Galaxy Z Flip will continue to be sold at $1,379.99.
