Samsung is no stranger to themed specialty smartphones, as it has offered Galaxy phones in the past that are decorated with Batman logos and Star Wars themes. The latest collaboration is a Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition with a matching set of Galaxy Buds Plus.
The Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition looks like Samsung's normal flagship, but has a unique dazzling purple exterior (the color is strongly related to the K-Pop group), a BTS logo on the back, and the band's heart symbolism on the camera array.
The BTS edition of the phone also includes BTS-inspired Android themes, as well as a pre-installed copy of the Weverse app (a social media platform used by BTS band members to communicate and share with fans). Finally, photo cards of the band are included in the similar BTS-themed box.
The Galaxy Buds Plus BTS Edition, on the other hand, is a purely cosmetic change, in which the standard colors for a pair of BTS purple earphones and a charging case as well as decorative BTS and heart symbols are changed on each earphone.
To sweeten the offer for fans, Samsung offers a free BTS poster for those who pre-order the branded S20 Plus or the Galaxy Buds (customers who pre-order both will receive two posters). By pre-ordering the Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition, customers receive a 50 percent discount on the matching Galaxy Buds, while pre-orders for the Galaxy Buds include a wireless charger with a BTS theme (also purple).
The BTS Edition Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy Buds Plus will be available on the Samsung website and Amazon from July 9th – the seventh anniversary of the BTS ARMY fan collective. Pre-orders start on June 19.
