In what could be the most egregious tease of all time, an official tweet from Samsung asked if we forgot the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 (we loved it) and tagged K-pop mega-group BTS, as well as the hashtag #GalaxyxBTS.
Yes, we think they could collaborate on a phone.
The Tweeter seems pretty self-explanatory, going so far as to display pictures of BTS members, some even holding the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, and pointing to the official to place for the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event, which the company has just announcement will take place on October 20.
You haven’t forgotten the # GalaxyZFlip3 yet, have you? We still need to talk. #GalaxyxBTS @BTS_twt Find out more: https://t.co/U3NHdnHOyg pic.twitter.com/rqPg5jF4mrOctober 13, 2021
If you remember, these images seem to be from BTS’s appearance in the last Samsung unpacked in August, which saw the reveal of the Z Flip 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. That in itself sounded like a clue that a collaboration between the world-famous group and the phone maker could be happening, and it looks like everything except a confirmation.
You have BTS in my Samsung … again
What would a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 BTS Edition look like? We don’t have a clue, as the images of the BTS members in the tweet don’t show any special version of the Z Flip 3 – just one of the lilac colors you can buy today.
This isn’t the first collaboration between the mega-group and the phone maker – the Samsung galaxy s20 plus had its own BTS edition launch in July 2020, in a vibrant purple hue with blue edges, along with BTS-themed software customization. There didn’t seem to be a mark… except for a telltale purple heart on the camera block for real fans to spot.
Presumably the Z Flip 3 BTS Edition (or whatever it’s called) could have similar coloring and software, as well as a logo somewhere in the design, but that’s only speculation at this point. It’s pretty obvious that we’ll see the device revealed at Samsung Unpacked on October 20, so we (and BTS fans hungry for their next phones) will just have to wait for the event to see it showcased.
