From AT&T to Verizon, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 preorder deals are still going strong. Unveiled at the last Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, the new foldable is slated to be released this week on August 11 alongside its pricier sibling, the $1,799 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5.

The $999 Galaxy Z Flip 5 sports a refreshed design, larger external screen, and a faster processor to help set it aside from the competition. New upgrades include larger outer display, gapless design, and camera improvements. Sure, they're iterative changes, but it's just enough to bump it past the Motorola Razr+. In our Galaxy Z Flip 5 review, we said its collection of small upgrades make it a far more usable foldable phone. 

Our favorite deal right now comes from Samsung. Samsung is offering up to $900 off with trade-in, a free storage upgrade, and an exclusive extra $50 off at final checkout.

If you're eager to get Samsung's new foldable, there are many Galaxy Z Flip 5 preorder deals you can get right now. Verizon, Samsung, and AT&T are just a few of the retailers and carriers offering early deals. (For more ways to save, check out our guide to the best Samsung promo codes).

One of the biggest Galaxy Z Flip 5 upgrades is noticeable right off the bat. The new foldable sports a much larger cover screen. The new 3.4-inch Super AMOLED display adds even more utility than before. Whereas the 1.9-inch cover screen of its predecessor was mainly used for quick notifications, the new larger outer display gives you access to full app experiences — in addition to the usual staple of widgets and notifications.

You'll also notice that the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a gapless design. It's a stylish change that retains the same 0.27-inch profile as before and helps it match rivals like the Oppo Find N2 Flip and Motorola Razr+, both of which sport gapless designs. 

It's worth noting that we're smack in the middle of back to school sales season. While there are cheaper phones you can get, retailers are still offering Galaxy Z Flip 5 preorder deals right now and in the days to come. Make sure to follow our coverage for the best discounts.
