The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, the brand’s latest flagship foldable smartphone, is already on sale from Samsung’s Labor Day sales at up to $1,120 off. The first component of the discount is a free storage upgrade from 256GB to 512GB, so instead of $1,920, you’ll only have to pay $1,800 for savings of $120, but the catch is that the price cut only applies to a couple of color options for the unlocked version of the device — Phantom Black and Icy Blue.
You can also get up to $1,000 off the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5’s purchase price if you trade in your current smartphone. The devices that Samsung will accept for the maximum trade-in value are the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, and Google Pixel Fold. By exchanging any of these devices, you’ll be able to get a total discount of $1,120 for the 512GB Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, so you’ll only have to pay $800. The free storage upgrade and the elevated trade-in values may not last beyond Labor Day, so you better hurry up with your purchase if you want to take advantage of the offer.
Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
