Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

Samsung has officially dished out the details on its 2023 foldable lineup: the premium Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the more affordable Galaxy Z Flip 5. If the former is what you're looking for, there's a lot to like about this year's top-of-the-line tablet-sized smartphone. It's got a new hinge, a less noticable crease and spec bump that's sure to win over those still sitting on the fence when it comes the high-end device.

Now that we know all there is to know about the new Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Flip 5, let's take a look at how much each model costs and when each released in Australia.

With a starting price of $2599, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 isn't just one of the most expensive foldable smartphones out there. It's one of the most expensive handsets you can find right now. Only the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung's own Galaxy S23 Ultra come close.

For reference, here's how much last year's Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 cost at launch:

  • Galaxy Z Fold 4 (128GB): $2,399 
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4 (512GB): $2,699
  • Galaxy Z Fold 4 (1TB): $2,999

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 release date

Galaxy Z Fold 5

As of the 18th of August, both the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5 are officially on-sale in Australia.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 plans

If you'd prefer to pay your Fold 5 off over time, rather than upfront, these Australian telcos will hook you up with a deal that allows you to spread your payments over 36 or 24 months. 

If you're looking to pick up the Galaxy Fold 5 on a postpaid plan for as little as you can, chances are you'll want to go with Vodafone. Paired up with Vodafone's $45 small plan, you're looking at $117.19 per month on a 36-month contract.

Or at least you would be if Vodafone wasn't offering a $300 discount on this particular handset. So long as you sign up before 14 September 2023, you're looking at $108.85 per month rather than the usual rate when it comes to signing up for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 on a 36-month plan through Vodasfone.
