Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G Gets A Huge Price Cut To Shakeup Foldable Phone Market
As a result, Samsung has instituted a permanent price cut for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, which sees its price drop down to a more affordable $1,199. That puts pricing more on line with high-end flagships like Samsung's own Galaxy S21 Ultra. The new pricing also puts even more daylight between the Galaxy Z Flip 5G -- which is Samsung's entry-level foldable -- and the flagship Galaxy Z Fold 2, which is priced at $1,999. The new pricing is available directly from Samsung's online store.
For those that might have forgotten about the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, it features a 6.7-inch folding AMOLED display with a resolution of 2636x1080. It can fold in half, allowing you to tote the device more easily in your pocket. Despite its folding design, it still packs quite a bit of power including a still potent Snapdragon 865+ SoC and a Snapdragon X55 5G modem. The SoC is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
Onboard you’ll find a 3,300 mAh battery with both wired fast charging and wireless charging support. There's even a tiny 1.1-inch AMOLED over display (300x112) that can display the time and simple notifications. And unlike most other flagship Android smartphones on the market, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G moves its fingerprint reader to the power button (rather than embedded within the display).
In addition to the price cut for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Samsung has also posted a blog in which it gives a rundown of 7 hidden features found on the device that could be useful in your daily travails.
