The Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne Edition isn't just a state-of-the-art smartphone but a fashion statement, as its eye-watering price clearly illustrates. And while there's little one can do to rationalize paying an extra $1,300 on top of an already intimidating $2,000 fee that the base Galaxy Z Fold 2 model commands primarily to get a limited-edition smartphone, it's not like consumer behavior was ever rational to begin with. Still, the smartphone is a textbook example of eye candy, and we're glad to report there's another high-resolution close-up of the this branded package that we can share with you.

And to be frank, it's not just a unique smartphone that paying the equivalent of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on top of the base Galaxy Z Fold 2 price gets you. This limited-edition collector's item also ships with the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Watch 3, both sporting the colors of the iconic fashion brand. Extra watch bands and a handset case are part of the package as well, and so all things considered, the price of this gadget combo isn't that outrageous. For added context, the Galaxy Watch 3 starts at $399, while the Galaxy Buds Live have an MSRP of $170, though they're frequently available at a discount.
Instead of downplaying it, Samsung fully embraced the elite nature of its latest foldable flagship
The Thom Browne fashion brand has been collaborating with Samsung for some time now, having most recently delivered an equally eye-catching variant of the Galaxy Z Flip. As for this special edition of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, it's set to hit the market on September 25th, a week after the base version of the device.
If you prefer Tommy Hilfiger or the original casual fashion powerhouse Ralph Lauren, both of which have clearly inspired the modern Thom Browne look, yet still want to make a fashion statement with your next smartphone purchase, Samsung actually has you covered to a degree.
