In an effort to push up a few more units, Samsung is about to launch a new variant of the Samsung Galaxy S20 that will certainly turn a few heads. A limited “BTS Edition” of the Samsung Galaxy S20, complete with a specialized purple pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds+, will open pre-order beginning this month.
Teased on Samsung ‘s own Twitter before being further detailed by site friend Max Weinbach, this new Galaxy S20 special edition variant comes in purple to align with the super-popular K-pop BTS band.
This new phone will apparently be released on July 9 — at least in South Korea — and will at least be available for the Galaxy S20 base model. It’s unclear if it will also offer the S20 + and S20 Ultra. The phone itself is a purple shade very similar to the “Mirror Purple” saw on the Galaxy Z Flip. Outside of that color change though, it’s pretty much just a standard Samsung Galaxy S20 that comes in some special BTS packaging edition.
At the other side, the matching Galaxy Buds+ pair is taking things up a notch. The Buds case is purple, and you’ll find violet on each earbud’s touchpad too. The BTS logo is also seen on the case and the left earbud, while the right earbud has the heart shape of the band.
BTS was first established in South Korea ‘s homeland Samsung in 2010. Since then the band has become extremely popular with a very loyal fanbase around the globe. It’s obvious that Samsung wants to tap into the fanbase and as a result, I bet they are going to sell quite a few of these. I am just a fan of the purple colors here, personally.
