Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition quickly sells out in South Korea


Last updated: February 21st, 2020 at 13:15 UTC+02:00

Samsung put the exclusive Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition on sale today in South Korea and local media is reporting that this special edition of the new foldable was sold out within two and a half hours. That’s impressive, considering the fact that the Thom Browne Edition costs almost double that of a regular Galaxy Z Flip.

It’s unclear, though, just how many units were sold out. Technically, it would be considered “sold out” if there were only a hundred units to sell and they were all sold. These are technicalities, though, which don’t really matter to customers.

South Koreans love their Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition

Samsung started selling the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition online in South Korea today. Apparently so many people had visited the site to possibly secure the device that it actually crashed for a short while. All of the available units were sold out but Samsung hasn’t confirmed exactly how many units were sold.

The company had also planned to sell the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition at five offline venues across South Korea. However, it decided to shelve those events and sell the device only through its website. This was done in order to prevent customers from camping outside the points of sale at night due to COVID-19 virus concerns.

Scalpers who flip products that are highly in demand are also working hard to pick up units. Despite its 2.9 million won retail price, the Thom Browne Edition is currently being sold for up to 4.5 million won ($3,700) in the secondary market. Samsung has said that it’s going to make additional units available in the near future so customers who couldn’t purchase one yet will be able to get it. The Thom Browne Edition is also going to be sold in several other countries in the coming weeks.
