Samsung has gifted the limited Galaxy Z Flip 4 Maison Margiela edition to Son Heung-min, the captain of the South Korean soccer team, a publicly known iPhone user.
Son shared photos of the gifted phone on his Instagram story, last Friday, with a thank you message written over the photo, also tagging the official Samsung handle.
The Z Flip 4 gifted to Son is a limited edition made in collaboration with the French designer brand Maison Margiela. This model is priced at 2.25 million won ($1,956), 781,000 won more than the regular model, and yet has sold out in a number of international markets, including Korea, China, and Hong Kong.
A Samsung Electronics rep explained, "We have gifted the phone Son as a thank you for his hard work at this World Cup. He's the only person in Korea that we have gifted Margiela edition."
In the photo that Son shared via Instagram, a letter that seems to have been handwritten by the Samsung Electronics marketing department reads, "Dearest Son! Congratulations on your victorious lead in this World Cup. It has been a gleeful November and December all thanks to you. We hope you recuperate during your break, and always stay happy and healthy."
