The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 gets a Winter Olympics makeover

This limited edition PyeongChang Winter Olympic Galaxy Note 8 is gorgeous, and you can't have one

On Wednesday, the tech giant announced a special edition of its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone for all athletes competing in the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

The phone will have the same hardware that makes the Note 8 a spectacular device including the bezel-less 6.3-inch Infinity Display, dual-sensor camera and of course the versatile S Pen. The Olympic edition features a shiny white back glass to celebrate the winter theme and has five gold rings - the symbol of the Olympic games.

Although, the internal specs of the phone remain unchanged, except for the pre-loaded PyeongChang Winter Olympics themed wallpapers.

Inside the smartphone, the device is the same as previous Galaxy Note 8 colour variants.




Samsung has released a few Olympic devices in recent years.

This is the third time that Samsung has offered its products in an Olympic context: The first time was at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, where they gave all Olympians the Galaxy Note 3, and then at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games it was the Galaxy S7. They will only supply 4000 of them to athletes and officials participating in the Winter Games and the Paralympic Winter Games. Do you think you'll want to try this new app on your Samsung Galaxy phone?

Samsung has made 4,000 of these, officially dubbed the "PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition", for athletes and Olympic staff to have as part of their Olympic experience.

PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition has been unveiled in Seoul, South Korea, to extend the company's Olympic legacy. That being said, the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition (boy, that just rolls off the tongue) is a lovely device to behold. A Snapdragon 835 SoC or an Exynos 8895 SoC powers the phone, which is backed up by 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB or 256GB internal storage options. There is also an 8MP selfie camera with a wide-angle lens and an aperture of f/1.7.
