Best pre-order deals for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 in Australia

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 pre-order deals Australia

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 5 overnight, which means retailers are fighting to offer the best pre-order deals and secure your cash.

If you’re keen to get the latest foldable phone, which comes with improved performance and a less noticeable screen crease, there are plenty of tempting offers to consider. Whether you want to stick with a preferred telco or buy the Fold 5 outright, you have some good options.

To help you save some money, here are the major pre-order deals currently active for the Galaxy Z Fold 5. There are hundreds of dollars in savings to be had ahead of the device’s local release on 18 August 2023.

Galaxy Z Fold 5 pre-order deals

Like the Flip 5 pre-order offers, retailers offer a free storage upgrade on the Fold 5. This means you get a larger storage model for the price of the next step down. For example, while pre-orders are live, instead of paying $2,799 for the 512GB model, you pay $2,599, which is the RRP of the 256GB model.

Many of the pre-order deals rely on you having a plan, or signing up to one with a telco. This includes the bonus trade-in value offered by swapping from a Z Fold 4. Vodafone leads the way here, offering $700 of bonus trade-in value in addition to the existing value of the old phone, while Telstra offers a $500 bonus, the same as its Flip 5 offer. Optus’ offer also remains the same regardless of your preference for Flip or Fold. They include a Watch 5 Pro and a pair of Buds 2 Pro at no extra cost when pre-ordering a Z Fold 5.

Samsung, Harvey Norman and Amazon provide the best deals for outright phone purchases. Samsung offers up to $500 of bonus trade-in value in addition to the existing value of an eligible device. Plus, you can also save on its Samsung Care+ program, which includes device swapping and repair services.

Meanwhile, Harvey Norman gives you a $400 gift card to its store for pre-orders, while Amazon offers an accessories starter pack valued at $456 for Prime members at no extra cost. This pack includes a trio charging pad, a 65W trio charger adapter, an S Pen and S Pen slim case, and a front screen protector.
