We've always felt that smartphones do not only serve as a communication tool but also as a personal statement of taste given the proliferate phone casing market. Enter Samsung, having launched not one but two new designs for the already-fashionable Galaxy Z Flip: Mirror Gold and Thom Browne Edition.

The Mirror Gold colourway is ideal for Galaxy Z Flip users who find the whole 'flip to open' flourish insufficiently flamboyant for their liking. Frankly, if no one is going to notice a dazzling gold flip phone in an age of borderless black mirrors, there are very few options left to create something even more eye-catching.

On the other hand, the Thom Browne Edition of the Galaxy Z Flip follows the design language of the eponymous American apparel designer, with a pebble-grey phone exterior and a box filled with the designer's preferred aesthetic of classical corporate luxury lines and colours. The Thom Browne Edition's Z Flip also comes with a customised user interface, with made-to-design standby mode, typewriter sound effects for the keyboard, an 'analogue' style ringtone, and many other little details. Users who pick up this edition will also receive a custom-designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active2.

"The Galaxy Z Flip has challenged the norm in terms of its size, design and functionality as a modern smartphone. It has been well-received by first movers and tastemakers in Singapore, having sold out twice during the launch period. We are still seeing favourable demand from a group of consumers who seek unique mobile experiences to complement their style. We are pleased to expand the Galaxy Z Flip line-up with the Mirror Gold variant and Thom Browne Edition, in addition to the existing Mirror Purple and Mirror Black." - Sarah Chua, Vice President, IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip in Mirror Gold will be available online from 2 May 2020 onwards (and available offline after CB measures are lifted) at a recommended retail price of S$1,998 - the same price for the Mirror Purple and Mirror Black versions launched earlier this year.
