Samsung announced this week a special Olympic Games Edition of the Galaxy S10 Plus to honor the next year’s Olympics games. The device is in Prism white color and comes with the Tokyo 2020 logo at the back panel. The phone also features special content form the Olympic Games, which included dedicated apps and VR streaming in previous Olympic special editions. Buyers will get a special edition with a pair of Galaxy buds with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics logo engraved on the case. The earbuds also come in Prism white to match the phone.
Samsung is producing only 10,000 units of the Olympic Games edition of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The phone costs around $1000 which is almost the same price as the regular Galaxy S10 plus. However, the special edition won’t be available until July 2020. By then, Samsung will have already released the Galaxy S11 and will be close to announcing the Galaxy Note 11. Despite the fact that logo and color look really cool but is it really worth to buy a phone at this price tag that is already one year old at its release?
Reservations for the 10,000 phones began on Thursday (May 16) with sales set to take place in July. Along with the engraved logo, the special edition device will have an Olympic wallpaper installed on the phone. The device itself is claimed to have a high performance, innovative photography feature and a big screen with a battery that can survive a full day long. It is also equipped with an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor at the front side with manufacturers stating that there are a recognized 3D fingerprint and strong security. Samsung provided 12,500 Galaxy S7 edge phones to athletes competing at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, while athletes at the Sochi 2014 and London 2012 Olympics also received products. An agreement was reached IOC and Samsung in December to extend their global partnership through to 2028.
