2020-04-27

Technology meets fashion as new device combines Samsung’s cutting-edge technology with Thom Browne’s iconic aesthetics to create a unique smartphone experience

Dubai, UAE – April 25, 2020 : Samsung Gulf Electronics today launched the all-new Galaxy Z-Flip Thom Browne Edition in the UAE, the device that will introduce a next-generation foldable smartphone experience through an exclusive collaboration between the leading technology company and iconic New York fashion brand. Galaxy Z-Flip Thom Browne edition was designed for consumers who are determined for their technology to be as stylish and impressionable as their clothing attire. To complement the distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors on a pebble grey exterior, the edition also comes with a custom-designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active2 – presenting consumers with an attractive package like no other.

"Collaborating with Thom Browne to develop Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was a project like no other," said Osman Albora, Head of the Mobile Division, Samsung Gulf Electronics. "It provided an amazing new avenue to combine our creative strengths and innovate a product that will redefine how consumers express themselves."

The limited-edition smartphone is the first of its kind to be encased in glass while retaining its desirable qualities of being effortless to hold and soft to the touch. With sound cues including a typewriter for the keyboard, and an analog ringtone resembling a shoe tap on a marble floor, the device also offers soundtrack authenticity. Galaxy enthusiasts are also provided with an essence of luxury from the moment of purchase thanks to Thom Browne's signature colors and a specially designed leather phone case that mirrors the brand's iconic style.

The Galaxy Watch Active2 comes with a Thom Browne custom watch face so consumers can work toward their wellness goals in style, as well as a grey leather strap to offer something different and enhance its look even further. And to complete the set, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition's Galaxy Buds+ come with matching grey for a cohesive and connected look and a specially crafted leather phone case reflecting Thom Browne's iconic style to keep them safe.  

The phone that embodies fashion

Galaxy Z Flip's innovative new form factor is cloaked in hues inspired by a Thom Browne suit. Enjoy the classic grey exterior featuring the signature brand colors, or change up the look with the included pebbled Leather Cover.

Samsung's First Foldable Glass Display

Galaxy Z Flip features an Infinity Flex Display with Samsung's proprietary bendable Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), making it slimmer with a sleek, premium look and feel that has never been seen with a foldable device before. The centered in-display camera cutout at the top also means there's no notch and no distractions, with Samsung's first-ever 21.9:9 ratio, so you can enjoy even more of your favorite content such as cinema-ratio 21:9 shows and movies.

The full screen that fits into your pocket

Designed for ultimate portability, Galaxy Z Flip folds into the size of a wallet, so you can easily fit it in your pocket or bag. When closed, it is a stylish, compact palm-sized device. When opened, its screen size almost doubles to reveal a stunning 6.7-inch display.

Tripod-less Night Camera

Capture stunning photos and videos without using your hands by using your Galaxy Z Flip like a camera on a tripod. Combine with Night Mode to take the perfect bright shot - which blends 14 shots in up to 4 minutes* - or use Night Hyperlapse to create captivating light trails with ease.

Hands-free communication

Enjoy immersive video calls without having to hold your phone, using Flex Mode. Simply half-fold the Galaxy Z Flip and place it on a table to use apps like Google Duo, and then watch on the upper half and control with the lower half of the screen.

Hands-free camera for selfies and vlogging

Use your Galaxy Z Flip like a laptop, with the free-stop mechanism and Flex mode. View on the upper half of the screen, while using the bottom half to control. It also allows you to shoot 16:9 widescreen videos in portrait mode.
