Samsung has announced it will be producing and giving over 4,000 special edition Galaxy Note 8 devices to staff and competitors of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games. The 2018 Olympic Games exclusive smartphone will highlight a winter white glass back with gold Olympic Rings for an added finishing touch.

The smartphone features the same specs and functions outside of PyeongChang 2018 exclusive wallpapers, alongside an exclusive case which showcases the Paralympic Games logo. Samsung had previously handed free Olympic editions of its Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone to every competing athlete at the 2016 Rio Games, which was later released to the public. However, the company has stated such won’t be the case this time around. In other news, the Galaxy S9’s release schedule may have been leaked.
