Samsung wants its devices to be more personal for its customers. In order to make that possible, Samsung will allow Galaxy Z Flip 3 customers to create their own Bespoke Edition of the phone with multiple colors -- up to 49 combinations in total. 

In addition to a custom-look Z Flip 3, Samsung is also bringing the same customization features to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic by allowing customers to pick their case and band instead. You can check out all of the combinations for the Galaxy Watch 4 on the  Bespoke Edition website for both the Z Flip 3 and the Watch 4

Samsung also announced a Maison Kitsune Edition Galaxy Watch 4 model with matching Galaxy Buds 2

In addition to customization options, the Galaxy Watch 4 is receiving a software update that should start rolling out today. The update adds several new features to the watch, including a new "knock, knock" gesture control that you can customize to open an app, your workouts list or turn on a light. 

Four new watch faces are also included in the update, with options that focus on specific information. For example, there's a new face that focuses on weather or another new face that focuses on health and your activity. The Animals watch face supports up to four complications. 

Finally, the Watch 4 is gaining fall detection at all times. Previously, the Watch 4 could only detect a fall during a workout -- now it can detect a fall whenever you wear it. 

Orders for the new Bespoke Edition Z Flip 3 start today, along with the new Bespoke Edition Watch 4 and or the special edition model .
