Are you looking to buy a folding smartphone? Do you want it to be Pokémon-themed? And do you live in South Korea?
If all those stars are aligned just right, do we have some good news for you: Samsung is making a Pokémon Edition of the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
They somehow decided to not make this folding phone look like a Pokédex … a device that is wildly important within the Pokémon universe and, which, you know, folds. They did include a Pokédex-themed necklace pouch, which honestly just makes me a little more annoyed because it means they know the Pokédex is a thing.
Instead, they’re shipping it with swappable back cases covered in plenty of Pikachus, plus some other accessories, including a PopSocket-style Pokéball stand, a Pikachu tail keychain, and Pokémon-themed ringtones and wallpapers pre-loaded on the device. If you’re thinking it kinda seems like they just stuck a nearly year-old phone in a box with some Pokémon stuff and called it a day … based on what they’ve shown so far, I’d be inclined to agree.
One of those as-of-yet undisclosed details is the price, but considering that the standard Galaxy Z Flip 3 still goes for $1,000 unlocked, I wouldn’t expect a limited edition run to go for less than that.
