Along with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6, Samsung today announced the Olympic edition of its new foldable phone. As a global Olympic and Paralympic partner, Samsung has exclusively designed and fitted this device to nearly 17,000 athletes competing in the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris 2024.

The technical specifications of the Galaxy Z Flip6 Olympic Edition remain the same as the regular Galaxy Z Flip6. However, several differences make it unique.

  • It comes in a striking yellow color decorated with the Olympic rings and the Paralympic agitos in gold.
  • Samsung has partnered with Parisian Men’s Luxury Maison, Berluti, who designed the official outfits of Team France for the Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony, to create an exclusive Flipsuit case that will be included with each device. This flipsuit case is made from Venice leather and will have a unique patina featuring a vibrant color mix inspired by the Olympic rings.
  • Each Galaxy Z Flip6 Olympic Edition will come with an eSIM of 100GB of 5G data in partnership with Orange and two years of Samsung’s international warranty.
  • Official International Olympic Committee (IOC) apps such as Athlete 365, Olympic Shop, Paris 2024, Transport Accred App, and the IOC Hotline will be pre-installed on the device.
  • Samsung Wallet will come pre-loaded with an in-app access card for free drinks at vending machines located throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Village in partnership with The Coca-Cola Company, and a free access card for unlimited public transport, in partnership with Ile-de-France Mobilités (IDFM).
  • Preloaded Paris 2024-themed apps include PinQuest and Galaxy Experience to collect and exchange real and digital pins during the games, Olympic Go!, the official Olympic game, and Galaxy Skateboard, a new game featuring the Pryges, Paris 2024 mascots.

Until now, only authorized media outlets could photograph the athletes standing on the podium, as athletes were prohibited from bringing smartphones and other personal items. For the first time in Olympic and Paralympic Games history, Samsung will provide the Olympic Edition Galaxy Z Flip6 for athletes to use on the podium. Samsung’s custom technology will automatically map and sort the selfies taken by athletes by sport and upload them to the Athlete365 service in real time for fans to enjoy.

Olympic and Paralympic athletes will receive their Galaxy Z Flip6 Olympic Edition from Samsung starting July 18.
