There’s some good news for fans of foldable smartphones this Wednesday, because T-Mobile and Sprint will carry Samsung’s new Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

Samsung today revealed the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, which brings with it a couple of notable upgrades over the 4G version of the Galaxy Z Flip that launched earlier this year. The first is 5G support, which allows the foldable to connect to the sub-6 flavor of 5G coverage.

The other big upgrade for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is its processor. While its predecessor had a Snapdragon 855 processor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has a new Snapdragon 865 Plus, which is Qualcomm’s newest flagship chipset.

The main display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G is a 6.7-inch 2636×1080 Dynamic AMOLED screen with a hole-punch near the top where the 10MP selfie camera lives. There’s a second, smaller 1.1-inch 300×112 Super AMOLED display on the outside of the Z Flip 5G to let you check notifications, the current time, and more without opening the main display.

The dual rear camera setup on the Galaxy Z Flip 5G includes a 12MP Super Speed Dual Pixel AF main camera plus a 12MP ultra wide camera with 123-degree field of view.

Alongside the aforementioned Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, the Z Flip’s internals include 8GB of RAM, 256GB of built-in storage, and a 3300mAh battery. You’ve got wired fast charging and wireless charging options when it comes time to refill that battery, plus you can recharge other Qi-compatible devices using the Z Flip with its Wireless PowerShare feature.

The Z Flip is also equipped with a fingerprint reader that’s located on the side of the device.

When it comes to the release, T-Mobile isn’t sharing much information yet outside of confirming that it will carry the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Samsung announced this morning that its new foldable will be available starting August 7 through its own online store as well as from T-Mobile, AT&T, Best Buy, and Amazon.

Pricing for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be set at $1,449.99. Again, T-Mo isn’t sharing its specific pricing plans for the device yet, but a T-Mobile release means that interested customers will likely have the option of buying the Z Flip 5G on an equipment installment plan. That could make the phone’s high price a bit easier to swallow for some folks who are interested in it.

Are you thinking about buying the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G?

    DON’T CARE ONLY WANT THE GALAXY FOLDS THEY CAN KEEP THIS

  • dcmanryan

    I fully expect $700 down and around $30 a month for those that choose to finance it.

  • Like why??? Lol

    Think about this… this is NOT a price point for folding glass coated plastic… i mean REALLY.. $1500 FOR A PHONE. A phone that won’t last 2 years. This costs more than rent for most. More than most airline tickets. More than any other mainstream consumer phone ever. For what? Folding fragile glass and plastic and 5G? No thanks.

      Stop your whining. If you don’t like it don’t buy it. The phone is a niche phone for certain class of consumers.

      • dcmanryan

        Whining or not he’s spot on. The only way to stop this BS is to keep our wallets closed which most will do with this DOA phone.

        • Mike

          The rich and wealthy will buy it for bragging rights. You can stop whining as well. I don’t plan on buying it but guess what there’s the S20, Note 10, Note 20, and countless other Android phones.

        • dcmanryan

          You do realize you’re whining about us whining right? And yes, I’m well aware other phones are priced well above $1k and I say the same thing about them. There’s a reason Apple wised up and started selling the iPhone XR, 11 and SE. The average consumer was sick of their pricing and showed them by not buying their products. All carriers are doing the same thing. Look at the V60, the Pixel 5. OnePlus is the only one that I recall that has done the opposite and seeing their sales numbers it’s ugly. Yes, Covid-19 is to blame for some but not all. I’m typing this on the OnePlus 8 and this phone is garbage and very buggy.

        I’m not whining about how capitalism works – I’m commenting the ridiculousness that there are too many blind people (like yourself) who clearly will pay $1500 for the world’s most fragile phone as a status symbol – and for what, its just overpriced plastic and glass. Do you think you SHOULD pay $1500 for something like this, just because it can fold?

    Name of the game is proof of concept. Meaning if this holds up for those that purchase it it means they will begin using it for other devices… because it works. IMO theyre releasing it just in case someone wants one.
