Have you ever used a custom skin on your Galaxy smartphone? Well, some users feel the need to customize their devices with custom colors and materials, and third-party brands like Dbrand and Slickwraps offer such custom skins for Galaxy smartphones. Now, Samsung has announced that it has started its own custom skin service for the Galaxy Z Flip in South Korea.
Samsung Korea says that it is now offering skins that are printed with a user’s favorite characters, colors, and patterns, and these skins can be attached directly to the Galaxy Z Flip’s glass body. These skins not only add character but also saves the phone from fingerprints and smudges. The company is offering one free skin to existing and new Galaxy Z Flip customers in its home country.
Right now, Samsung is offering 11 skin options, including four colors (blue light green, red, matte transparent, and black watch), four patterns (two geometric, dot, and grid), and three characters (Bear, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Kakao’s Nine). Customers can avail promotional coupons for buying one of these skins using the Samsung Members app from July 9. Customers interested in Galaxy Z Flip custom skins can visit this page.
Before the launch of the Custom Skin service, Samsung will also hold pop-up events at Samsung Digital Plaza Hongdae, Hyundai Pangyo, Galleria Gwangkyo, and Electromart Yeongdeungpo stores in South Korea. Galaxy Z Flip users who visit these stores during the event will receive one additional custom skin as a gift, and a Samsung team member will apply the skin on the phone for free.
A Samsung Electronics executive said, “We created ‘Custom Skin’ service after getting inspired by users of the Galaxy Z Flip who want to express their personality with various accessories such as stickers, beads, key rings, etc. I hope that a new phone decorating culture will be created for the Galaxy Z Flip.”
Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip Decorating Festival Season 2 from July 9, where users in South Korean can take a selfie with custom skin attached to their Galaxy Z Flip, and their selfie can appear on Samsung’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
