Samsung Galaxy Note 8 gets refreshed and very exclusive new look

Rex Tillerson said his staff prints out Trump's tweets and hands them to him to read

This is in celebration of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games which will be held in South Korea, and for that Samsung has created a special version of the phone.

Instead, they'll be handed out to Winter Olympians, Paralympians and the staff at International Olympic Committee and other organisers.

Starting with the premise that "your phone is useful, but sometimes you need to put it down", Samsung this week introduced a new free app for its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.

As we mentioned, apart from the Olympics-themed customisation, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition has the same specifications as of the original Galaxy Note 8 that was launched in August a year ago.

He essentially shut Higgins' claims down and clarified that he's only ever seen the floor three times in his boxing career. That was the first thing that struck me, when David Higgins was put on the spot about the " glass chin " stuff again.

Samsung will also be providing these special edition Note 8 devices to participants of the Paralympic Winter Games that also include cases with the Paralympic Games logo. Samsung's creation of an Olympic Games Limited Edition device reinforces Samsung and IOC's shared desire to spread the Olympic spirit. With the Winter Olympics coming up, Samsung spiced things up with a new model, albeit availability is very limited. Its because of dedicated partners like Samsung that were in the position to provide unforgettable experiences at the Olympic Games time after time.”. The company began sponsoring the games way back in 1988 when it entered as a local sponsor during the Seoul Olympic Games.

It's now unclear if Samsung has similar plans for its PyeongChang Winter Olympics Note 8.

If you're interested in it, you'll have to pry one out of the hands of those involved with the Games though it might just appear on an auction website if you're lucky.

Kim Ki-hoon, the former short track speed skater who was named mayor of an athletes' village at the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Tuesday, said he will make an all-out effort to help athletes feel comfortable and give their best performances at the competition.
