Official Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 pricing discovered before official release
Earlier this week, @billbil_kun revealed Eurozone pricing for the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5. Supposedly, the pair will start at €1,199 and €1,899 with 256 GB of storage, respectively, making them slightly more expensive than their predecessors. However, the Galaxy Z Flip5 would be cheaper than previous suggestions, with Techmaniacs claiming a €1,299 starting price for a 128 GB storage variant.
Subsequently, Roland Quandt appears to have discovered official confirmation of Galaxy Z Flip5 pricing in Romania. Somehow, the leaker found a PDF of a contract for a competition to win 10 Galaxy Z Flip5 units, which can still be viewed on Samsung's website at the time of publication. For reference, we have embedded a machine-translated excerpt below should Samsung pull the contract from its servers.
As the image below shows, Samsung will sell 256 GB versions of the Galaxy Z Flip5 for RON 6,599 in Romania, which converts to approximately €1,335. As far as we can tell, Samsung initially sold 256 GB versions of the Galaxy Z Flip4 for RON 5,699, RON 900 and 13% less than the price shown below. Thus, it appears that Samsung is set on raising prices across the board for its next clamshell foldable, although a smaller gap may exist in Eurozone member states.
