Samsung has been involved with the Olympic Games since the 1988 Seoul games and has continued to support in some way or another.

Basically this is a Note 8 with a new coat of paint, and unfortunately it seems that Samsung has no plans to sell it. The tech giant has announced that it will be supplying 4,000 Galaxy Note 8 devices to athletes and officials participating in the event. In the weeks leading up to the lighting of the torch in PyeongChang and throughout the Winter Games, make sure to visit the blog for the most comprehensive coverage of the latest video-production developments. Of course, it has the golden five-ring Olympics logo on it - it's displayed on the white back panel.

The Galaxy Note 8 is the first phone from Samsung to feature dual-cameras with a 12MP dual-camera setup, the primary camera has a wide-angle 12MP lens with an f/1.7 aperture and the secondary camera has a 12MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture. To celebrate this year's Olympic Winter Games, Samsung is releasing a limited edition of its Galaxy Note 8.

The 2018 Winter Olympics is nearly upon us (it starts February 9) and this year's event is taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea. The phone will only be made available to those who are part of the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games, such as staff and the athletes themselves. The last one was an Olympic Edition Galaxy S7 Edge. The packaging has the logo and name and includes a carrying case. Point to be noted here is, the limited edition Galaxy Note 8 possess the same hardware specs to that of the commercial models, and the difference lying only in the appearance.

There's less than a month to go until competitors gather in PyeongChang, South Korea for the 23rd Winter Olympics. The front-facing camera comes in at 8-megapixels while the rear-facing camera is 12-megapixels.

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