Almost a year after the release of the Lacoste Galaxy Z Flip 4 case, Samsung and the crocodile-branded fashion company have partnered again, only this time, they announced new accessories for the latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 models.
There were no Lacoste accessories for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 last year, only the Z Flip 4, so this is a nice change of pace for Samsung's foldable phone duo. Plus, this year's accessories for the 5th generation foldable phones have more intricate designs.
The Z Flip 4 case last year was unicolor and had a small Lacoste logo. The 2023 accessories, too, have the mandatory crocodile. However, they feature an intricate urban-inspired white pattern on a black background and are far more eye-catching.
The monogram patterns featuring what appear to be skyscraper buildings inside rhombus shapes represent the Lacoste 2023 collection. Since the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 cases use the same pattern, they fit with the French company's other fashion items released this year.

In its recent blog post, Samsung says this partnership is an opportunity to promote the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 around the shared values of both brands: creativity, personal expression, and surpassing oneself.
5th generation Samsung foldables are the best yet
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 were announced in July and released a few weeks later in August. Both models introduced key redesigns, particularly through a new hinge that makes them thinner and allows the phones to fold shut without leaving a visible gap.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 feels like the bolder sequel between the two, as it also introduced a larger 3.4-inch cover screen powered by a fresh UI component in the form of app widgets.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 have proven to be some of the most durable phones on the market, especially among other foldable devices. But it's never a bad idea to wrap an expensive flagship phone in a protective case. And these new Lacoste designs seem to fit the foldable phones well.
