Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 Retro takes inspiration from the brand’s OG flip SGH-E700

Blast from the past, you say?

Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip5 Retro, a special limited edition smartphone that takes a nostalgic cue from the much-loved SGH-E700 of yesteryears. Remember that iconic retro flip phone that made its debut two decades ago in 2003? It was also quite a game-changer as Samsung's first phone to rock a built-in antenna.

The Galaxy Z Flip5 Retro pays homage to the SGH-E700 with its indigo blue and silver colour combination, a UX design reinterpretation of 2000s pixel graphics and a nostalgic cityscape animation displayed on the Flex Window.Along with the phone, you'll find three Flipsuit cards featuring logos from different Samsung eras, a Flipsuit case to keep your phone safe, and a collector card engraved with a unique serial number.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 Retro, available in a 512GB model, is priced at USD 1182 (approx ₹98,500). This limited edition smartphone, however, is set to launch exclusively in select regions. So if you're looking to snag one, you might need to embark on a bit of an adventure to make it yours!
