Samsung Unveils Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro, a Nostalgic Tribute to the Classic SGH-E700
Samsung has taken a trip down memory lane with the release of its limited edition Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro. Paying homage to the iconic SGH-E700, the company’s first phone with an integrated antenna, this retro-inspired device is bound to capture the attention of tech enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Back in the early 2000s, the SGH-E700 took the mobile phone industry by storm, selling over 10 million units worldwide. Its revolutionary integrated antenna design played a significant role in elevating Samsung’s status within the industry, setting the stage for its future success in the smartphone market.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro mirrors the distinct indigo blue and silver color combination that made the original SGH-E700 so memorable. The phone features pixel graphics for the clock widget on the cover screen, reminiscent of the early days of mobile technology. Additionally, an exclusive cityscape-style animation graces the Flex Window, adding a touch of novelty to this nostalgic device.
However, Samsung enthusiasts based in the United States may feel a little left out, as the limited edition phone will only be available in Korea and select countries in Europe. Apologies to those across the pond, but the rest of the world eagerly awaits the opportunity to get their hands on this piece of tech history.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro comes with three Flipsuit cards, each featuring a logo from different eras of Samsung’s storied past. These collectible cards, along with a Flipsuit case and a specially engraved collector card boasting a unique serial number, ensure that this limited edition smartphone is truly a one-of-a-kind device.
For those eager to make the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro their own, mark your calendars for November 1, 2023. Samsung will be selling the phone exclusively through its own website in Korea, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Australia. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of Samsung’s history and experience a touch of nostalgia in the modern era of smartphones.
