Themed smartphone launches were quite popular back in the day, with just about everyone including Samsung, OnePlus, OPPO, Vivo and Huawei joining in on the fun. They're not as frequent as they used to be, but we still get to see a few now and then. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have a Thom Browne edition, which will now be joined by the Wooyoungmi Edition.
For those out of the loop, Wooyoungmi is a South Korean menswear clothing brand launched in Paris by the designer Youngmi Woo. It is one of the more critically acclaimed clothing brands in the country. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Samsung is teaming up with Wooyoungmi to spice up the look on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
As you can see in the renders above, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 Wooyoungmi Edition will ship with a full stack of accessories for both devices. You get a leather carrying case for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, a lanyard of sorts, and a clear protective case. On the other hand, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 gets a bog-standard phone case and a holster for the S Pen Pro.
Interestingly enough, none of the above images show the Galaxy Z Fold 3, while the Z Flip 3 can be seen in the standard black shade. Therefore, we can reasonably assume that the ‘Wooyoungmi Edition' is little more than a bunch of designer accessories for the foldables. We should know more about it in the near future.
Little is known about the release date of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 Wooyoungmi Edition. We can expect it to debut soon-ish in South Korea. Whether or not it will be available globally remains to be seen.
