Samsung has been teasing a new Purple color with hashtags #SamsungGalaxy #BTS on Twitter for quite some time now. While Samsung has not explicitly mentioned the name of the device that is getting this new color in its teasers, we believe it to be the Galaxy S20 series, since this is its only newest flagship series. Also, later, XDA’s Max Weinbach revealed that Samsung will bring the limited edition Galaxy S20 Plus and the Galaxy Buds Plus in partnership with BTS on July 9.
Weinbach has shared a few pictures of the Galaxy Buds Plus which he discovered in the newest Galaxy Buds+ plugin from the Google Play Store. The images show the Galaxy Buds+ in Mirror Purple color and with BTS logo on them. His follow-up tweet also shows an image that includes a BTS phone which is the Galaxy S20+ and the picture of the BTS band group.
Remember how I was asking about that BTS logo yesterday? Well, it's because Samsung is releasing Galaxy Buds+ in partnership with BTS. This will likely launch with the Mirror Purple BTS phone.

Reportedly, Samsung will start taking pre-orders for the limited edition Galaxy S20+ on June 19. The Mirror Purple Samsung Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy Buds in purple color will be initially launched in South Korea. It is currently unknown how many units Samsung will make available of this limited edition phone and accessory. Usually, special editions come as limited editions as they manufactured in small numbers.
Note that Samsung will launch the new pair as a special edition and the rest of the specifications of the Galaxy S20+ will remain the same. BTS, the South Korean boy band group has a large fanbase and this could attract the masses to go for the new special edition and eventually boost the overall sale of the Galaxy S20+.
