Samsung intros fashionable Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition to Japan

Samsung’s fashionable variant of its stylish foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition, is going to be released in Japan by the end of the week. The product is already listed on the Galaxy Mobile website in Japan, but online reservations will be accepted from May 13. The smartphone, or rather the bundle, will be on sale starting May 15.

The standard Galaxy Z Flip is already available in Japan online through KDDI’s sub-brand au for 179,360 yen ($1,670). The Thom Browne Edition will be distributed in the country through the same retail channel but the asking price will be higher. Prospective buyers are looking at a 270,000 yen ($2,515) price tag, but this lump of money will get them more than just a Galaxy Z Flip bearing Thom Browne’s signature Americana striping.

The Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition is a complete package rather than just a phone, and this is true in Japan and every other market in which it’s been released so far. The retail box includes a pair of Galaxy Buds+ earbuds, a Galaxy Watch Active 2, and a protective case for the smartphone, all of which feature the custom color scheme. The Thom Browne smartphone itself has never been sold separately without these accessories, therefore, the higher asking price compared to the regular Galaxy Z Flip is justified.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip is intrinsically a more fashionable smartphone compared to even the company’s other foldable device, the Galaxy Fold. Samsung’s fashion collaboration leading to the Thom Browne Edition further highlights this inherency. But beyond the stylish exterior design, the Galaxy Z Flip is a competitive smartphone, spec-wise.
