Samsung’s collaboration with popular K-Pop boyband BTS is coming into fruition in the form of a special edition of the Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy Buds+. The boyband once partnered with LG to promote the LG G7 ThinQ a couple of years back, and there was even a BTS Edition of the LG Q7+. A new render of the Galaxy S20+ BTS Edition has leaked thanks to @evleaks. This one is a little different than the one we saw come from Max Winebach.
The render shows the Galaxy S20+ in what looks a lot like the Lilac Purple color of the Galaxy S9+. This Edition includes unique wallpapers and themes, along with special branding below the Samsung logo on the back, and a purple heart stamped on the camera glass.
Meanwhile, the BTS edition Galaxy Buds+ are essentially black Buds+ with purple touch surfaces, along with the special heart and logo branding. The Buds case itself is purple. Renders of the Galaxy Buds+ that we saw last week told us these Buds+ are “Mirror Purple” and this purple is a bit darker than the phone above, so we wonder if they will match more closely in person.Source: Samsung UAE
According to the listing of the Buds+, these earbuds will come with an exclusive “Live Wallpaper/Sticker/Lockscreen”. It will also use a BTS image throughout the Samsung Gear app such as when checking the battery level. Here’s the retail packaging for the Buds+.
