Earlier today, Samsung introduced its second foldable smartphone called the Galaxy Z Flip at an event in San Francisco. The phone arrived in two attractive hues including Mirror Black and Mirror Purple. Merely a few hours after the launch, the South Korean tech giant has also introduced a limited edition of the device called the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition. As the name suggests, the company has partnered with the iconic New York fashion brand. This edition draws on Samsung’s latest foldable phone and the fashion brand’s “bold, timeless style”.

As you can see in the images above, the Galaxy Z Flip Browne Edition’s box contents will include the Galaxy Watch Active2 smartwatch with a grey leather strap as well as the new Galaxy Buds+ with the Thom Browne design. Notably, the special edition Watch Active2 will also have a Thome Browne custom watch face, which will let you personalise the smartwatch as per your choice.
The Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition flaunts distinctive Thom Browne signature colours on a pebble grey exterior. There’s a Thom Browne New York logo on the back of the casing of the smartphone. As per Samsung, the phone is “the first-of-its-kind to be encased in a glass while still having a matte look that is soft to the touch and effortless to hold”. Notably, the limited edition phone also features Thom Browne custom icons, a typewriter sound for the keyboard, an analogue ringtone, and a custom wallpaper.
“Partnering with Samsung to create Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was an incredible opportunity to reimagine how consumers express themselves through their smartphone,” said Thom Browne. “We designed Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition just like I do my collections—with proportion, individuality and aesthetic in mind—to create the perfect blend of art and technology”, the popular fashion designer added further.
Coming to the pricing, the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition will cost you a hefty $2,040 (~Rs 1,45,460), a big premium over the $1,380 (~Rs 98,400) pricing of the standard Galaxy Z Flip. The limited-edition offering is unlikely to be launched in India. As for the regular Galaxy Z Flip, the handset will be launched in India soon, as pre-registration for the device are live on the brand’s website.
