At the much-anticipated Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung delighted fans by introducing two exciting smartphones: the Galaxy Z Fold5 and the Galaxy Z Flip5. Following the grand unveiling, the South Korean giant wasted no time revealing the prices for these devices in the Indian market.

Let’s delve into the specifics of each phone

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5

This foldable marvel comes in three variants, offering varying configurations to suit different preferences. With options of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB internal storage, accompanied by 12GB of RAM, the prices stand at ₹1,54,999, ₹1,64,999, and ₹1,84,999, respectively. Choose from stunning colour options like Icy Blue, Cream, and Phantom Black. If you already own the Galaxy Z Fold4, the upgrade to the Z Fold5 may not offer significant enticements, as the primary differences are the newer Flex Hinge, providing a seamless closure experience, and the introduction of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy processor.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5

The Galaxy Z Flip5 introduces a new and intriguing feature, the Flex Window, showcased on its folder-shaped cover display. It also comes equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy, promising impressive performance. However, when it comes to the price, things get a bit concerning. The 256GB variant of the Galaxy Z Flip5 starts at Rs. 99,999. Compared to its predecessor, the Z Flip4, currently available at Rs. 94,999 for the 256GB variant, the Z Flip5 costs Rs. 5,000 more, almost touching the one lakh mark.
