Samsung is no stranger to partnering with major global brands and personalities for its flagships. For its latest S20 series, it has partnered with popular K-Pop band BTS to create a special variant that is purple in colour.
This collaboration provides BTS fans across the world the opportunity to get special and limited edition products from Samsung. As of now, the products are available only in South Korea. The Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition features a new design with purple glass and metal exterior while the Galaxy Buds Plus BTS Edition also comes in purple, which is the band’s colour scheme. The iconic purple hearts are also prominently present.
What’s in the box?
The Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition is available in both 5G and LTE variants. It comes pre-installed with BTS-inspired themes and a fan community platform, Weverse. In the box, you also get some decorative stickers to personalize the devices, and photo cards featuring pictures of the band members.
The Galaxy Buds Plus BTS Edition comes in a purple and black colour combo with the touch control area painted with a coat of purple. The finish extends to the charging case too. As with the original Buds Plus, these buds also come with AKG audio. The Galaxy Buds+ BTS Edition also comes with the photo cards of the band in the box.
