Folding fever is growing: It’s time for luxury smartphones

Internal storage for both models starts at a minimum of 256GB, goes up to 512, and reaches up to 1TB on the top-of-the-line Galaxy Z Fold5. Prices? These are premium devices whose value also lies in their exclusivity and technological sophistication. The Galaxy Z Flip5 in the 256 GB version costs 1,250 euros, while the 512 GB version costs 1,370 euros. A good 120 euros more for 256 GB more memory, a jump that can hardly be justified without the corresponding profit margins.

The Galaxy Z Fold5 instead costs 2,000, 2,190 and 2,360 euros depending on the variant: 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. In terms of price, what is particularly striking is the stinginess of the accessories offered in the package: Samsung follows Apple’s bad example, only the smartphone and a cable. Nothing more and this is also justified as an ecological and sustainable decision. However, the competitors Motorola and Oppo offer adequate equipment: power supply, cable and also a case (essential in my opinion), which in the case of the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra also has profiles that match the smartphone.

Galaxy Z Flip5: the ideal pocket device to express yourself without compromise

The new foldable device features a 6.7-inch foldable display with an “FHD+” resolution (2640 x 1080) and a dynamic refresh rate of up to 12 Hz.
