Samsung announces Winter Olympics Galaxy Note8

Samsung announces Winter Olympics Galaxy Note8

The only difference is that the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition Galaxy Note 8 brings Olympic themed wallpapers.

The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition Galaxy Note 8 offers a shiny-white back glass, and the golden Olympic rings logo on the back, which has been inspired by the Olympic Torch. The 2016 Olympics edition Galaxy S7 Edge was available for sale, but the company managed to sell only a couple of thousand units worldwide.

Samsung will also give the limited edition Galaxy Note 8 to Paralympians participating at the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

The 2018 Winter Olympics is nearly upon us (it starts February 9) and this year's event is taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea.

This model includes all of standard Note 8's features such as a 6.3-inch infinity display, dual camera and S Pen but there is a very unique and exclusive change to the design. Over 4,000 devices will be delivered to athletes and qualified staff to help them connect and capture their best moments during the Olympics.


"Samsung's commitment to the Olympic Movement has increasingly enabled meaningful connections through innovative mobile technologies over the past 20 years".

"Samsung's creation of an Olympic Games Limited Edition device reinforces Samsung and IOC's shared desire to spread the Olympic spirit", IOC President Thomas Back said.

If you have yet to buy a new phone and you've been eyeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it seems that Samsung has unveiled a special edition version of the phone.

This isn't the first time Samsung has created a special device to celebrate the Olympics.

The 2019 Provincial Games will be the largest to date, according to a release from Special Olympics B.C. The sport of 5-pin bowling is moving from summer to winter, joining alpine skiing, cross country skiing, curling, figure skating, floor hockey, snowshoeing, and speed skating. The phone comes in a case that features the official logo and name of the event. In the coming weeks, the SportsTechLive Blog will serve as the home of SVG and SVG Europe's daily in-depth coverage as the Games play out in Rio, including live reports from the International Broadcast Center and Olympic Venues.
