    A week ago, Samsung announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 in Pokemon colours. And when the special edition of the foldable smartphone hit the markets of South Korea, it is reported that the Pokemon-themed smartphone sold out within minutes of its release! Samsung targetted Pokemon fans with the foldable Galaxy Z Flip 3, and the results suggest that it worked well. SamMobile reported that the Galaxy smartphone maker didn't reveal the number of units it sold of its new limited-edition Galaxy Z Flip 3, however, an official of the company anonymously admitted that the company is yet to decide whether the Pokemon-themed Galaxy Z Flip 3 will reach to the overseas markets like Europe and the US or not.

    The special edition of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 focused more on the retail package that included a special Pokemon-themed packaging box, and several other peripherals all based on the Pokemon game such as a special Pokemon pouch, a clear case with Pikachu stickers, and additional Pokemon stickers, a Pokeball pop socket and a Pikachu keychain. Not just that, the special offer on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 also included a free one-year Samsung Care+ plan on the house. All the orders were placed via the company's Galaxy Campus Store in Seoul as well as the Samsung online store.
