Special Olympic Winter Games Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiled

US to Maintain Open-Ended Military Intervention in Syria: Tillerson

Samsung will also give the limited edition Galaxy Note 8 to Paralympians participating at the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. It has a bezel-less 6.3-inch Infinity Display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage (and a microSD card slot), dual 12-megapixel rear-facing camera setup with dual-OIS and 4K video recording, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with autofocus and QHD video recording. But more importantly, it boasts a white back "to celebrate the winter theme" and gold Olympic rings, inspired by the commemorative flame.

As we mentioned, apart from the Olympics-themed customisation, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition has the same specifications as of the original Galaxy Note 8 that was launched in August past year. Over 4,000 devices will be delivered to athletes and qualified staff to help them connect and capture their best moments during the Olympics. The company has also sponsored the Paralympic Games since the Winter Vancouver Olympics in 2010, becoming a World Paralympic Partner.

The Ministry of Justice said the decision comes as the number of foreigners visiting the country is likely to increase sharply around the kickoff to the 2018 Winter Games.

Each of these devices will include pre-installed Olympic apps which should be useful for every user.

Their tablets will feature Paralympics-themed cases to highlight the role of smart devices that have supported those with disabilities.

"Samsung's commitment to the Olympic Movement has increasingly enabled meaningful connections through innovative mobile technologies over the past 20 years", said IOC President Thomas Bach. It is reported that 4000 of these devices will be distributed among the athletes and staff members before the official opening of the Olympics early next month.

Unfortunately, if you want this Winter Olympics edition, you're going to have to scour the secondary market and pay over the odds when someone inevitably tries to cash in. Samsungs commitment as a Worldwide Olympic Partner continues through PyeongChang 2018, and Tokyo 2020 in the Wireless Communications Equipment and Computing Equipment category.
