Aug 30, 2023 • Filed to: Virtual Location Solutions • Proven solutions

A flip phone with a foldable display - Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 with decent specifications was launched a short while ago. And now, Samsung has partnered with GamesFreak, the company behind the Pokémon franchise, and that partnership has gamers around the world freaking out. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition is real, and it is here and you can purchase one now - if you are in South Korea. Let’s find out what this new limited-edition Pokémon phone is all about.

Part I: Have You Been Waiting to Buy the New Pokémon Edition Galaxy Z Flip3?

Rumor mills have been churning for a while now, and now Samsung has quelled them - Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition is here. What are its specs? When can I buy it? Where can I buy it? Sure, that’s what goes in everyone’s minds whenever they are excited about a new phone launch. Here’s what this new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition is all about.

We would start with design, but the Pokémon Edition branding is why you are thinking about it, so we will start with that instead. Branding - it’s that intangible that tickles you in all your right spots and makes you go for it. And Samsung’s partnership with GamesFreak does not disappoint. This Pokémon Edition phone hits all the right spots. From Samsung’s image it teased us with, it is revealed that this box comes with a lot of Pokémon goodness for fans of the legendary creatures. 

What you get in the box is:

-a clear, customizable Pikachu cover

-Pikachu keyring

-themed ring holder inserts

-Pokéball style stand

-Pokémon carry pouch

-some Pokémon cards

-yes, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition phone.

All this goodness comes in a large, Pokémon-styled box that itself is drool-worthy.

Now, it must be noted that the image shows the phone to be the standard matte black, so it stands to reason that the phone itself has no Pokémon branding whatsoever on it, it may be accessorized such with the provided accessories. The software, on the other hand, might come with the game pre-installed, it yet remains to be seen.

Design, Specifications, and Software

Not much is available or revealed about the exact specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition, but it should stand to reason that the phone is not different from the recently released Flip3 itself, but no official confirmation is available.

For a short recap, the Flip3 is a foldable flip phone that features:

-Snapdragon 888 5G chipset with Adreno 660 graphics

-8 GB of RAM

-128 GB/ 256 GB storage

-6.7-inch 2640x1080 pixel 426 dpi foldable AMOLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate

-12-megapixel ultra-wide and 12-megapixel wide-angle system at the back

-single 10-megapixel punch hole camera system in the front

-IPX8 water resistance

-3300 mAh battery

On the software side, it comes with Android 12.1 preinstalled, and we expect the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition to feature the same Android flavor, with the exception that it might come with Pokémon preinstalled.

Pricing And Availability

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 Pokemon Edition is available at KRW 1,284,000 (around $1,040). You can buy it from 11th Street, Galaxy Campus Store, and Samsung’s online store.  But the phone sold out within minutes of going on sale, according to SamMobile. At the moment, this Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition is exclusive to South Korea. And it hadn't yet decided whether to sell this phone in other countries like the US. 

Now, if you are considering this phone, you are likely in love with all things Pokémon, so if you are playing Pokémon Go on your mobile, would you like to learn how to catch more Pokémon right now?

Here’s the best way to spoof your location to catch more Pokémon easily.
