As Star Wars fans are waiting for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to hit their nearest theaters next month, Samsung has announced a new product aimed at them. It is the Galaxy Note 10 Plus Star Wars Special Edition smartphone that will also go on sale starting next month. It comes with special packaging, a new paint job, and some goodies to attract fans of the franchise or anyone who just loves to own special edition items.
Starting with the retail packaging, it is a big Black box with Kylo Ren-themed design. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus phablet is also Black in color but with Red accent on the camera module, power button, and volume controls. The accompanying S Pen stylus is completely Red which gives it a lightsaber look. The backside of the flagship has the First Order logo and Star Wars branding at the bottom.
Samsung has further packed the special edition phone with wallpapers, shutdown animations, icons, and sounds inspired by the Star Wars universe. Other than the smartphone, the retail box includes a Kylo Ren-themed special leather case, a collectible Star Wars metal badge, and Black Galaxy Buds wireless earphones with Red-colored casing.
Samsung has priced the Galaxy Note 10 Plus Star Wars Special Edition at $1,299.99 with sales starting December 13th in the United States. The exact configuration of the phone is currently unknown but it is likely to be the top-end 12GB RAM/512GB onboard storage model. It will be sold via Amazon, select Best Buy stores, select Microsoft stores, Samsung's online store, and Samsung Experience Stores in the U.S. The special edition will also be available in Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UAE, and the United Kingdom.
