In anticipation of the 2020 Summer Olympics, Samsung is releasing a Galaxy S10 Olympic Games Edition in Japan exclusively through local carrier NTT DoCoMo. This is a limited edition variant with a stock of 10,000 units. The Japanese carrier has slipped to an official launch on the device and prospective buyers will be ready to place orders on July 24. The phone will then start shipping to customers a couple of days later on July 26.
The Galaxy S10 + Olympic Games Edition costs 114,696 yen ($ 1,062). It comes only in the Prism White color option and features the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games logo on the back panel as well as a custom theme. It's going to ship in a special retail box which contains a pair of Galaxy Buds.
Summer Olympic Games kick off in Tokyo on July 24, 2020. Perhaps this has been planned for release closer to the actual Olympic Games, but because it's a limited edition device with a run of 10,000 units, it will probably sell fairly quickly.
Maybe Samsung wants to be releasing an Olympic Games Edition of the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11 next year, but we have not heard anything about it yet. Nevertheless, the company has been to an official Olympic Partner for more than two decades, and the partnership is extended for another 10 years.
Over the last decade, Samsung has released Olympic Games-themed flagships, including the Galaxy S3 Olympics Edition for the 2012 London Olympics, as well as the Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.
