Now, Samsung Korea has showcased the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Pokemon Edition on its website (h/t: Maeil Economic Daily). So how does it differ from the standard foldable?
Well, an image of the entire package (seen at the top of the page) shows that the phone comes with a Pikachu clear cover, a Pokemon pouch, a Pikachu tail phone ring of sorts, a Poke ball phone grip akin to a Pop-Socket, and several cards.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Pokemon Edition: Hot or not?
There’s no official confirmation on whether the phone itself differs aesthetically from the standard Galaxy Z Flip 3. But it does seem like you’re getting a standard colorway here. Samsung hasn’t disclosed a price tag just yet, either.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 Pokemon Edition will reportedly go on sale from April 25 via Samsung’s Korean website. We’ve asked Samsung representatives if the special edition phone will be coming to the US and will update the article if they get back to us.
