Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokemon Edition was quickly sold out following its release
Within minutes of its release in South Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokemon Edition was sold out. This is in line with the recent success of the Pokemon sticker-bread duo on the company’s home turf.
The edition sold out in less than five minutes when it came out at midnight on Monday. The price was $1,025, which was a little more than the original Galaxy Z Flip3.
A Samsung spokesman said on Tuesday that the company couldn’t say how many copies of the Pokemon edition were sold or how many more copies would be sold.
A news agency in South Korea says that Samsung hasn’t yet decided whether or not to launch a special edition of its smartphone in other countries.
If you want to get the special edition of Samsung’s foldable phone, you get Pikachu Keychain, Pokemon Palette, Monster Ball 3D Grip Talk, and five Pokemon stickers. This is because it’s a way for Samsung to respond to the latest consumer craze and touch on South Koreans’ childhood memories.
Samsung, the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, has worked with well-known designers and brands to reach more fashion-conscious young people and build a network of accessories and limited-edition mobile products that can use with their phones.
In September, it released the Galaxy Watch4 Classic Thom Browne Edition with the help of the American fashion brand Thom Browne, which is known for its stripes on its clothes.
It also released the limited-edition Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Buds2 wireless earbuds the next month, made with the help of Maison Kitsune, a French-Japanese electronic music label, and fashion company.
Galaxy G6 edge Iron Man Edition was made with Marvel in 2015, and it went on sale that same year. When Injustice: Gods Among Us was three years old in 2016, the tech company worked with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment to make the Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition. It was made to celebrate the game’s third birthday.
As a result of the recent revival of the Pokemon craze in South Korea, food and dining company SPC Samlip has relaunched Pokemon breads. This has prompted Pokemon fans to form long lines in front of convenience stores and supermarkets to get their hands on the stickers inside the bread’s plastic package that feature popular characters from the Japanese cartoon and video game.
