With about two weeks to go until the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, Samsung Electronics, the Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment and Computing Equipment category, has unveiled the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition.
In collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the PyeongChang Organising Committee for the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG), Samsung will deliver over 4 000 devices to all Olympians as well as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic family, including IOC and POCOG staff.
The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will include the new features of the Galaxy Note8, such as the innovative bezel-less 6.3-inch Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, enhanced S Pen and Samsung’s Dual Camera.
Exclusively for the Games, the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will showcase a shiny white back glass to celebrate the winter theme and gold Olympic rings – inspired by the Olympic Torch — an expression of the Olympic Movement with the union of five continents and unity worldwide.
“Throughout our 20-year legacy as an Olympic partner, Samsung has showcased our support of the Olympic Movement by helping spread the Olympic Spirit and enhance connections through our latest technological innovations and immersive experiences,” says Younghee Lee, chief marketing officer and executive vice-president of Samsung Electronics. “We’re proud to provide the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition to all athletes in an effort to help them to stay connected, capture and share one of the most memorable moments of their lives.”
The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will feature celebratory pre-loaded PyeongChang 2018 themed wallpapers. Useful apps will be pre-installed to help users enhance their Olympic Games experience.
“Samsung’s commitment to the Olympic Movement has increasingly enabled meaningful connections through innovative mobile technologies over the past 20 years,” says IOC president, Thomas Bach. “Samsung’s creation of an Olympic Games Limited Edition device reinforces Samsung and IOC’s shared desire to spread the Olympic spirit. It’s because of dedicated partners like Samsung that we’re in the position to provide unforgettable experiences at the Olympic Games time after time.”
