Samsung has just announced the release of its highly anticipated limited edition smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro. This unique device is a tribute to the iconic SGH-E700, Samsung’s first mobile phone to feature an integrated antenna. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro takes inspiration from its predecessor with its indigo blue and silver color combination, reminiscent of the original SGH-E700.
One of the standout features of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro is its attention to detail. Samsung has carefully replicated the pixel graphics for the clock widget on the cover screen, reminiscent of the SGH-E700’s aesthetic. Additionally, this limited edition model boasts an exclusive cityscape-style animation on the Flex Window, further paying homage to the heritage of Samsung’s mobile phone innovation.
The release of the SGH-E700 back in the day was a significant milestone for Samsung. With over 10 million units sold, it played a crucial role in establishing Samsung’s reputation in the mobile phone industry. Now, Samsung is taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane with the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro, aiming to capture the hearts of consumers once again.
Unfortunately, this unique smartphone will only be available in Korea and select countries in Europe. Samsung has decided to exclude the United States from the launch. However, for lucky buyers in authorized regions, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro will come bundled with three Flipsuit cards, a Flipsuit case, and a collector card engraved with a unique serial number.
Those eager to get their hands on this throwback device won’t have to wait long. Starting from November 1, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro will be available for purchase on Samsung’s official website in Korea, as well as in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Australia.
Samsung fans and mobile phone enthusiasts alike now have the opportunity to experience the nostalgia and innovation of the past while benefiting from the cutting-edge technology of the present with the limited edition Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro.
