Samsung is about to introduce the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable smartphones. Both new models will be officially announced on Wednesday, August 11. As all details are already known, the Russian Caviar has decided to already announce two Galaxy Z Limited Edition models based on Samsung’s new folding phones. There is choice between a black Z Fold 3 and a gray Z Flip 3, both models are made of titanium and decorated with a provocative skull.
It’s a somewhat remarkable decision by Caviar. At the beginning of this year, the company also released a Galaxy S21 Ultra Limited Edition. This device was also announced before the official introduction of the S21 series, but it was taken offline shortly after – at the request of Samsung Electronics.
This time around, Caviar releases the two foldable models within the Skull Capsule collection. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been given the matching name ‘Ragnarok’, the Z Flip 3 will be released under the name ‘Catrina Calavera’.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Limited Edition with over 400 gemstones
When it comes to Samsung foldables, the Z Fold 3 will be put to market more expensive than the Z Flip 3. However, the designers of Caviar have overhauled the new Flip in such a way that this model is significantly more expensive than its Fold counterpart.
The name Catrina Calavera refers to ‘la Calavera de la Catrina’, a zinc etching made in 1913 by Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada. The etching is originally a satire on elite women. The skeleton lady became particularly known after Mexican Diego Rivera incorporated the signature skull in his famous work ‘A Dream of a Sunday Night in Alameda Park’. Today it is a symbol for the Day of the Dead on November 1 / 2.
The eye-catching 18K white gold skull of the Catrina Calavera model is inlaid with plenty of precious gemstones: diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies provide a splash of color and sparkle dazzling in the sun. In total, no less than 419 gemstones have been processed in this Limited Edition model.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 from Caviar will be released in a limited edition of 20 pieces. The number 20 is a lucky number within the Mayan tradition. This handcrafted smartphone is available for a starting price of $46,460 USD.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Ragnarok Limited Edition
The Catrina Calavera design comes with vibrant colors – just like the streets of Mexico City on the Day of the Dead. The Ragnarok model, on the other hand, is presented in a darker color range with black and red. In the center of the composition is a fiery skull – the symbol of the Scandinavian king of fire, the giant Surt.
The base of the skull is a composite stone with a deep night color and a relief geometric pattern made in the technique of laser engraving. The eyes of Surt’s symbolic image are inlaid with bright red sparkling rubies. The flames around the skull are hand painted with jewelry glaze.
According to the legend, it is the blow of his fiery sword that will give rise to ‘Ragnarok’ – the last battle of the gods. Caviar has opted for durable materials, with black titanium and impact-resistant composite stone that offer the smartphone extra protection and also give it a tough look.
The Caviar Galaxy Z Fold 3 Ragnarok edition will be released in a limited edition of 99 pieces. The cost for this model starts at $10,770 USD.
