The 23rd Winter Olympics will be hosted by South Korea, with the major sports event taking place from February 9th to February 25th at its Pyeongchang County. It goes without saying that South Korea is immensely proud to be playing host to the 2018 Winter Olympics, and one of the country’s most recognizable consumer brands, Samsung, is helping to spread the Olympic spirit by officially announcing the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition of its latest flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8. This is hardly a surprise, considering that the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices also happens to be an official Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment and Computing Equipment category.
Partnering with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as well as the PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG), Samsung is looking to provide more than 4,000 units of the special edition Galaxy Note 8, not only to every Olympian participating in this year’s Winter Games, but also to the whole PyeongChang 2018 Olympic family, including all the staff serving under the IOC and the POCOG.
The regular Galaxy Note 8 phablet is already a pretty impressive handset in its own right, with its majestic 6.3 inch Infinity Display, a dual camera configuration, and an improved S Pen. The new PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition, however, aims to take things to another level by adding a sleek white glass rear cover that fully embodies the Winter Olympics theme, and of course, the world famous five Olympic rings are present on the lock screen, plus another five concentric gold rings on the top right section of the device’s front side.
Apart from the Olympic themed flourishes in terms of design, the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will also come with Winter Olympic wallpapers already pre-installed. On top of this, various mobile apps will be preloaded not only to help participating athletes get connected, but also to deliver the most memorable Olympics experience possible.
This is not the first time that the world’s number one mobile brand has released an Olympics special edition smartphone. As a matter of fact, some may remember that back in 2016, Samsung had launched a 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics special edition of its Galaxy S7 Edge. This year, it appears that the tech giant is gamely looking to start a sort of tradition with the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition of the Galaxy Note 8.
