The limited-edition models are developed through the partnership between the Korean tech giant and the popular K-Pop boy band.
Samsung is no longer stranger to releasing special, limited editions of its Galaxy phones. Previously, the Korean smartphone behemoth made headlines when it partnered with Batman and Star Wars. Today, however, the firm is banking on the immense international appeal of BTS. Folks, meet the Samsung Galaxy S20+ BTS Edition and its matching Galaxy Buds+.
Dipped in purple
The company has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ BTS Edition. The limited-edition refreshes of the devices are developed exclusively by the partnership between Samsung and BTS.
Both models are dipped in a familiar purple-colored theme, which is reflected on the smartphone and the wearable. For the new custom edition of the Galaxy S20+, the phone comes with 4G and 5G versions. All models also come with purple glass and metal body.
Meanwhile, the wireless earbuds from Samsung also receive the purple paint job, complemented by its purplish charging case.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ BTS Editions boast the BTS logo, alongside the purple heart iconography.
BTS-styled themes, Weverse
Inside, the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20+ 5G BTS Editions come pre-installed with BTS-inspired themes, plus a fan community app, Weverse.
In their respective boxes, the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20+ 5G also come with decorative stickers and phot cars, which feature images of the band members. Meanwhile, the BTS edition of the Galaxy Buds+ packs photo cards of the band right inside its retail packaging.
Specs, pricing, and availability
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ BTS Editions reflect those of their host variants. The only difference can be gleaned in their own themes.
Samsung hasn’t revealed the official, international pricing of the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ BTS Editions. But the company already announced that the Galaxy S20+ 5G BTS Edition unlocked version and the Galaxy Buds+ BTS Edition are set to become available for pre-order via Samsung.com in the United States, from June 19 to July 8.
Prospective customers who will pre-order both the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ BTS Editions are expected to receive two, free limited edition posters. On the other hand, the latter’s pre-orders should also come with a BTS wireless charger.
The limited BTS editions of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy Buds+ are tipped to go on sale from July 9 on Amazon.com and Samsung’s website in the US.
