The latest offering follows the release of the Thom Browne Galaxy Z Flip which came out earlier this year in February. Priced at $3,299, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne Edition costs almost $1300 more than the standard foldable smartphone by Samsung, making it one of the most expensive handsets sold directly by a manufacturer.

The matt grey color adds a very unique look to the foldable smartphone, replacing the standard variant’s mirror finish which end up attracting fingerprint stains. The package also includes a matching leather cover with a pebbled texture. The special edition deceive also gets an exclusive Thom Browne theme to sit on top of the operating system that includes unique design changes to the UI, special app icons, and interesting tones such as typewriter sound for the keyboard, an analog ringtone, a shoe tap on a marble floor, and more.
The hardware specs are identical to the standard Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone. It features a foldable 7.6-inch full-HD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O 2x display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a second 6.2-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Flex cover display.
