Samsung Reveals Special Edition Galaxy Note 8 for the 2018 Olympic Games


That's because the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not officially go on sale - at least, that's Samsung's initial intention.

Supporting Olympians, the Galaxy Note 8 PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will come with preloaded PyeongChang 2018 themed wallpapers.

Presented a few days ago at CES in Las Vegas, the Galaxy A8 is the first smartphone in Samsung's Galaxy A range to get an edge-to-edge display, a dual front camera and support for the Gear VR headset.

This special edition Note 8 will have a glossy white back to celebrate the winter them and white S Pen with gold highlights. The company said it will provide drones, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and 360-degree video platforms to help capture Olympic events, starting with the 2018 Winter Games. Paralympians will also receive a phone case with the Paralympics logo. "Samsung's creation of an Olympic Games Limited Edition device reinforces Samsung and IOC's shared desire to spread the Olympic spirit".

Starting with the premise that "your phone is useful, but sometimes you need to put it down", Samsung this week introduced a new free app for its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. A Snapdragon 835 SoC or an Exynos 8895 SoC powers the phone, which is backed up by 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB or 256GB internal storage options. There is an 8-megapixel selfie camera with autofocus and wider f/1.7 aperture.

The phone features 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB 3.1 Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone port, and a 3500mAh battery with Fast Adaptive Charge and fast wireless charging. The device also comes loaded with Knox protection and it is equipped with company's in-house virtual Assistant Bixby.

Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime runs on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat on the top of Samsung's custom UI.

For security, the company has added iris scanner, facial recognition and fingerprint sensor, which is situated on the back panel.
