According to Samsung, the company will, “deliver over 4,000 devices to all Olympians as well as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic family, including IOC and POCOG staff allowing them to lean on Samsung mobile technology to enhance their experiences and connect more conveniently.”
Beyond a fancy and limited look, the phone is exactly the same as any other Galaxy Note 8, but does come with pre-loaded PyeongChang 2018 themed wallpapers, as well as pre-installed “useful” apps (aka Olympic bloatware).
If you’re an Olympian, congratulations on the free phone. If you’re not an Olympian, we could potentially see this model go up for sale like we did in 2016. No promises, though.
USA! USA! USA!
