In conjunction with the upcoming PyeongChang Olympics 2018, Samsung is introducing a limited edition Galaxy Note 8. With a white glass back and a matching white S Pen, the special edition Note 8 is quite a looker.
Unfortunately, this limited-run Galaxy Note 8 is not for sale to the public. Rather, it’s being given away to athletes competing in the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics; staff members of the Olympic will also receive the device. Unlike the Olympic edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge – which was eventually available for purchase publicly – this white Note 8 will remain exclusive to those who are involved in the PyeongChang Olympics.
Aside from the new colour, the special edition Galaxy Note 8 also has the gold Olympic Rings displayed on the bottom of the rear glass panel. The Note 8 is also pre-loaded with PyeongChang 2018 themed wallpapers along with some apps “to help cultivate the utmost Olympic Games experience.”
Beyond aesthetic changes, this variant of the Galaxy Note 8 is no different from the standard model. It still comes with a sleek 6.3-inch 1440p Super AMOLED Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, an excellent dual-camera system, an 8MP front-facing shooter, and a 3,300mAh battery.
To show support to the Paralympic Movement, Samsung will also give a Galaxy Note 8 with a special case that features the Paralympic Games logo to athletes competing in the Paralympic Winter Games. If you’d like to learn more about the Galaxy Note 8, check out our comprehensive review here.
