Samsung has released a Pokémon-themed poké ball case for its Galaxy Buds true wireless earbuds in South Korea. It’s the perfect accessory for anyone who’d prefer their charging case to look dope as hell rather than to be able to easily fit in their pocket.
Pokémon-themed Galaxy Buds case is a limited edition, and it also appears to be exclusive to South Korea where it costs 134,000 won (around $105).
Unlike a very similar wireless earbud charging case that Razer released in 2020, Samsung’s poké ball doesn’t appear to be charging its earbuds directly.
Instead, the idea is that you put the regular charging case for your Galaxy Buds 2, Galaxy Buds Pro, or Galaxy Buds Live (aka the Galaxy Beans) inside the poké ball, where it’s presumably ready to be deployed mid-battle. Samsung also includes a Pokémon-themed sticker with the accessory to adorn your charging case with.
There’s no word on whether the poké ball might see a release outside of South Korea. But given there’s been no sign of Samsung’s previous Pokémon-themed Galaxy Z Flip 3 outside of the country, we’re not holding our collective breath.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Pokemon Edition sells out in minutes
Last week, Samsung announced its Galaxy Z Flip3 Pokemon Edition phone and the phone now went on open sale in South Korea. Sure enough, several minutes after the device was made available, all units priced at KRW 1,284,000 ($1,024) were sold out over the company’s Galaxy Campus Store in Seoul as well as the Samsung online store.
The retail package included a special Pokemon-themed box, a special Pokemon pouch, a clear case with Pikachu stickers, additional Pokemon stickers, a Pokeball pop socket and a Pikachu key chain.
Samsung also included a free one-year Samsung Care+ plan on the house with all orders placed via its online store. There’s no word if the Pokemon Galaxy Z Flip3 will make its way to other markets at this point.
