As the year is reaching its end, the closer we are to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker which will be released in cinemas on 20 December. To celebrate the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, Samsung has announced a Star Wars themed Galaxy Note 10 Plus bundle to also be released next month. No Bothans were harmed to deliver us this information, although we did annoy our intern at least.
The Note 10 Plus Star Wars Special Edition bundle includes the aforementioned Samsung smartphone, a pair of Galaxy Buds, a leather phone case, and a metal badge. The Note 10 Plus sports a metallic black design with red trims on the buttons and around the camera, while a First Order emblem and Star Wars logo can be found on its back. The S-Pen is decked out in glorious lightsaber red, but sadly it does not emit crossguards when taken out from the Note 10. The Galaxy Buds also come in metallic black which also applies to its casing’s exterior. The inside of the casing matches the S-Pen’s red colour. Finally, both the leather casing and badge sports Kylo Ren’s helmet as part of their decoration.
Aside from already displaying a Kylo Ren wallpaper by default, the Star Wars Special Edition Note 10 will also feature exclusive Star Wars-themed wallpapers, shutdown animations, icons, and sounds. Star Wars fans, especially those who adore Kylo Ren and the First Order, will be able to pick up this bundle for US$1299.99 (~RM5400) when it is released on December 10th.
You’d be right if you had a bad feeling about this. According to Samsung, among the countries confirmed to receive the Star Wars Special Edition bundle are Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UAE, UK, and the US.
We’ve reached out to Samsung Malaysia and they’ve confirmed with us that there are no plans to bring the bundle to our country at this time. Well, so much for a new hope.
