A man walks past an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 smartphones at the company’s Seocho building in Seoul on October 28, 2021, after South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics posted a 28-percent jump in operating profit.
The South Korean phone maker is consistent in marketing the Galaxy Z Flip Z, highlighting that it is for the hip and stylish folks out there.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Jeans
This time around, Samsung decided to collaborate with a popular jean maker, Dr Denim, to develop a pair of jeans that features a pocket custom-made for the size of Galaxy Z Flip 3 when it’s folded, as per the report by Android Central.
The lovechild of Samsung and Dr Denim goes by the name Z Flip Pocket Jeans, which drops the traditional rectangular pockets of pants. Instead, it flaunts a new flavor for its pockets–a square look that fits in the foldable phone when it is folded just right.
The Head of Brand Marketing of Samsung, Hayley Walton, admitted that “smartphones are often not pocket friendly.” As such, the South Korean phone maker went on to change the size of the pockets by working with Dr Denim.
