Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5: New Retro Blue Edition

Our Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 review had little to critique. However, Samsung seems to be crafting a ‘retro’ edition flip foldable, as reported by MSPoweruser via Notebookcheck. The images accompanying this news enhance its credibility, though remember that nothing is confirmed until the company officially announces it; plans may evolve.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro Edition pays homage to the past while incorporating a contemporary twist. Although it may conjure images of rotary dials and extendable antennas, the alterations are limited to color and finish.

This revamped model will feature a blue color panel and a matte frame finish. Everything else remains unchanged. According to MSPoweruser, we can anticipate the release of this refreshed handset in the upcoming weeks.

Expanded Color Palette

Currently, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 offers colors like Mint, Lavender, Graphite, and Cream, with Gray, Blue, Green, and Yellow also accessible on the Samsung website. The new ‘retro’ blue appears to be a deeper hue than the existing blue option.

The appeal of Fresh Hues

Introducing new color choices is a simple strategy for smartphone makers. It necessitates minimal adjustments in the production process, revitalizes interest in the phone, and attracts potential buyers.

Past Instances

Samsung previously employed a similar tactic by adding the Bora Purple variant to the Samsung Galaxy S22 last year. Apple, too, consistently rolls out new colors, such as the recent introduction of a yellow shade for the iPhone 14 in March.

Cautious Optimism

While no other leaks confirm the existence of this phone, it’s worth noting that MSPoweruser, the source of this information, has a mixed track record with leaks. However, this development appears plausible.
