Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 plans

The cheapest Galaxy Z Fold 5 plans available in Australia and where to find them.

There's no doubt about it, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is a premium smartphone that comes at a premium price. While many prefer to pay for their smartphones outright, the asking price for the Z Fold 5 is a lot to stomach in one hit. If you'd prefer to pay the Galaxy Z Fold 5 off over 24 or 36 months, the following mobile providers will hook you up with a plan. 

If you're looking to pick up the Galaxy Fold 5 on a plan for as little as possible, you'll want to throw your money at Vodafone.

Paired up with Vodafone's $45 Small plan, you're looking at $117.19 per month on a 36-month contract. Even if that's not exactly cheap, it's still the most budget smart way to score Samsung's most expensive foldable smartphone on a postpaid plan ahead of its Australian launch.

What's more, Vodafone is currently running a promotion that knocks $300 off the price of the Galaxy Z Fold. This means you're looking at $108.85 per month rather than the rate above when it comes to signing up for the device on a 36-month plan.
