A webpage posted by the largest Japan’s wireless operator, NTT Docomo reveals that Samsung is offering a special Olympics game edition of the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The 2020 Summer Olympics games will be held in Tokyo, Japan, next year, from 24 July to 9 August.
The special edition model looks almost exactly like the Prism White Galaxy S10+ but has a special badge from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on the back of the phone.
Pre-orders started yesterday for the device via NTT Docomo and will continue until the day before the phone is launched. While an exact release date has not been announced, the phone should begin shipping by the end of July.
The model is priced at 114,696 Japanese yen, which amounts to $1,042 USD at current exchange rates. The phone can also be purchased for 36 monthly payments of 3,186 yen ($28.94 USD).
The last two Galaxy phones of the Olympic Edition, the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Summer Olympic Games 2016) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Winter Olympics 2018), were delivered to every competing athlete in the games. We should also see the gifts delivered to the participants of 2020. Considering that the latest Galaxy Edition models for summer games, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, were available on Best Buy, we could also find the special edition of the Galaxy S10+ that is offered also there. And if not, well, you can bet some of the Olympic athletes will end up posting their free phone on eBay.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ Specs
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ carries a dynamic 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3040. Such works in a proportion of 19: 9. The US and China models are provided by Snapdragon’s 855 mobile platforms, while the Exynos 9820 SoC controls the device in the rest of the world.
We hope that the addition of the Olympic Games has 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage. There is a triple camera configuration on the back (primary 12MP + 2x optical zoom lens + 16MP ultra-wide) and a dual selfie on the front (10 MP + 8MP).
On board, there is an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner faster and more accurate, and the 4100mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 9 Pie is pre-installed along with the Samsung OneUI interface. These last places all the passable elements in the lower part of the screen where you can easily access, without having to stretch your finger to reach the top of the screen.
