Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Retro, a limited edition flip phone inspired by the brand's first foray into the world of flip phones 20 years ago. The newest edition of its Flip 5 series honours the the iconic SGH-E700 flip phone model released in 2003 – a staple accessory in the early noughties.

Whether we like it or not, flip phones are back in business, so it's seems justified that Samsung is paying homage to where it all started. The limited edition phone will be sold in Korea, Australia and various locations in Europe, so if you miss the opportunity to snag one, check out our collection of the best flip phones to bag the next best thing.
