Home Tech News Samsung announced a special edition of its folding for Pokemon lovers
On the official site of Samsung Korea the arrival of a new edition of the folding cell phone Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. It is a version with accessories and aesthetics of the popular augmented reality video game Pokémon Go.
The date of this launch is next April 25, as can be inferred by seeing the active counter on the web; although there is also a clarification below that says there could be changes, in the announcement.
“Be the first to know about the Galaxy Z Flip 3, made even more special through the biggest collaboration ever.” is read when entering the site, along with the invitation to join a subscription to receive updates about this event.
There are no details regarding what this version of the folding mobile will be like. There are probably no differences in the technical characteristics of the cell phone, although from the photo that is included on the page, it is seen that there is a clear imprint of the popular augmented reality game.
You can see six cards of Pokemon; a tail keychain Pikachua case to carry the mobile, a Pokeball-shaped ring stand and a clear Pikachu case. Apparently all these elements will accompany the launch of the new device.
Although below it is also clarified that “the actual product may differ from the image above and the components may change” due to certain circumstances.
It should be remembered that the Samsung Galaxy ZFlip 3 was released in August 2021 and among its characteristics its pocket size stands out. It has a 6.7″ AMOLED screen, with an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz; with Gorilla Glass Victus glass on both sides, combined with an aluminum design.
The company has said, in its presentation, that the foldable can resist 200 thousand times the bending movement.
It has a dual rear camera (12 MP ultra wide and 12 MP wide angle) and a 10 MP front camera. You can take a selfie with the Dual Preview function with the phone closed by taking a quick screenshot, for example. In this sense, many applications are optimized for the Flex Mode of the device, such as the camera, and others that can be enabled.
It has a 3300 mAh dual battery (makes it last longer since it consumes less energy); 8GB of RAM, with 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. In addition, it integrates a 5mm 64-bit octa-core processor.
Its fingerprint sensor is on the side of the cell phone and it has facial recognition. The outer panel, designed for notifications and other uses, is 1.9″ Super AMOLED (in the first model it was 1.1″). This display allows access to quick settings, widgets and apps, as well as serving as a photo preview.
As for Pokémon Go, it is an augmented reality video game for mobile phones, developed by Niantic which was launched on the market in July 2016. The objective is to search for and capture characters from the Pokémon saga hidden in real-world locations and fight them, which requires the user to physically move through the streets.
The app also has a social aspect as it encourages physical encounters of players in different spaces of the analog world.
This new release from Samsung, which at least initially would only be released in Korea, aims to combine both worlds: the playful aspect of a game that was born with mobile phones and the benefits of a folding mobile phone that, being small and light, is more easy to port to different sites.
