Some of Samsung’s best deals appear during pre-order periods. For example, early Galaxy Z Fold 5 users who pre-order the device before August 11th can take advantage of the free storage upgrade. The pre-order period is over, but Samsung is now bringing back the free storage upgrade deal with one caveat.
For a limited time, Samsung is willing to sell the 512GB Galaxy Z Fold 5 for the price of 256GB. So, instead of shelling out $1,919 for the 512GB Z Fold 5, you can now pick up the 512GB foldable flagship for $1,799.
Note that the free storage upgrade does not apply to the 1TB model, i.e. you cannot get the 1TB variant for the price of 512GB.

You must choose one of these Galaxy Z Fold 5 colors
There is only one caveat to this new storage upgrade deal. It is only valid for two color options, so you will have to buy the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in Phantom Black or Icy Blue. If you want the device in Cream or two of the online exclusive color options, you won’t get the free storage upgrade to 512GB.
If you want to pay less for the Galaxy Z Fold 5, you can get up to $1,000 in instant credit when you trade in select smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is eligible for a $1,000 trade-in, while a Galaxy Z Fold 3 trade-in can get you $800 off.
Samsung’s new Galaxy Z Fold 5 features a redesigned gapless hinge that allows the phone to fold flat and is now thinner than any of the company’s previous foldable phones. It’s powered by the Galaxy’s second-generation Snapdragon 8 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and a dual 4,400mAh battery. The foldable flagship runs One UI 5.1.1 out of the box but will be among the first Samsung phones to get the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update.
