Original: February 11, 2020 (3:54 PM ET): Samsung finally unveiled its first-ever vertically folding smartphone — the Galaxy Z Flip — at Unpacked 2020. The handset touts the same Samsung Galaxy experience we have all come to know in love but in a brand new form factor.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip comes in four colorways: Mirror Black, Mirror Purple, Mirror Gold (available in select regions), and a silver Thom Browne edition with red, white, and blue pinstripes.
We’ve rounded up all the details on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip price, release date, and all the available deals so far.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip release date
Pre-orders for the foldable smartphone will start this Friday, February 14. You’ll be able to buy the foldable phone directly from Samsung, other retailers like Best Buy, and directly from AT&T or Sprint. There’s no word on other carrier partnerships yet.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip price and availability
The Samsung Galaxy Z flip is only available in an 8GB of RAM/256GB of storage option, and it will retail for $1,380. It’s already listed on Samsung’s website, and though it initially showed a $440 discount ($940), the device has since returned to its retail price.
The Thom Browne special edition variant is also only available in one 8GB/256GB configuration. It will retail for a whopping $2,480. But unlike the standard device, this special edition variant also comes with some other goodies in the box, including a pair of Galaxy Buds Plus, a Galaxy Watch Active 2, a phone case, and a gift box — all of which come with Browne’s signature design aesthetic that matches the smartphone.
You should be able to purchase the device directly from Samsung’s website in all available markets. If you’re in the US, you’ll also be able to buy the Galaxy Z Flip through your carrier, assuming you are on AT&T or Sprint.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip UK price and availability
The Galaxy Z Flip launches in the UK on February 14 priced at £1,300. Samsung says the foldable will be available in limited quantities from Samsung UK, and selected retailers and carriers. So far, O2 is the only UK network with a listing for the Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip India price and availability
The Galaxy Z Flip will be released in India on February 20, as per Samsung India’s tweet teasing the launch of the device in the country.

Samsung hasn’t announced the price or delivery schedule for the phone yet, but pre-registrations have gone live on its India website. We expect Samsung to announce the price or at least the pre-order details of the phone on the aforementioned release date.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip best deals and offers
As mentioned, the Galaxy Z Flip is already listed on Samsung’s website. Best Buy’s current listing shows the device with a small $50 discount for the unlocked version, while the AT&T variant comes with the full $1,380 price tag. Sprint’s listing has the device at full price too, but like Best Buy’s AT&T Galaxy Z Flip, you can pick it up with a monthly installment plan.
The Thom Browne Edition is also available on Samsung’s website, but we don’t know where else it might be available in the future yet. This device variant comes in at $2,480, but that price is sort of justified considering all of the other goodies you get in the box. Samsung will reveal more information about this device February 12. Check the links below for specific pricing and availability details.
