Samsung confirmed it would be an official partner for this year’s Olympic Games during its Galaxy S III unveiling earlier this month, and the Korean company is going all out to show its support. It will be producing a number of special edition handsets to celebrate the event, one of which has surfaced ahead of its official launch.
That’s the back of the Olympic Games edition Galaxy Note, plastered with a large Union Jack. If you take a close look at its box, you’ll notice there’s a second back cover which appears to feature the Team GB lion.
Other than the fancy back covers, the handset is no different to the existing Galaxy Note you’ve been able to purchase for some time. However, this one will be exclusive to O2, according to GSMArena, and for every handset purchased, Samsung will donate £1 (approx. $1.55) to “Team GB athletes of the future.” Customers will also be given the chance to win tickets to the Olympics, a Team GB training event, or a celebration event.
Samsung is also said to be producing an Olympic Games edition Galaxy Y handset. It is thought the company will also offer different designs — with different flags — within their respective countries.
