Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could get a special Star Wars edition

Samsung is preparing to release a limited edition Star Wars: The Last Jedi variant of the Galaxy Note 8, according to reliable Weibo tipster Ice Universe.

The handset, which has been designed to celebrate the forthcoming release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is expected to go on sale in select countries next month.

Ice Universe shared a poster teasing the variant on Wednesday, November 22, though it doesn’t reveal anything about its design or special features.

Samsung has launched unique models of its flagship smartphones in the past, with the most recent being the Pirates of the Caribbean version of the Galaxy S8.

If the firm follows in its own footsteps, we can expect the Star Wars: The Last Jedi variant to ship with both a Star Wars-themed colourway and user interface.

There’s no word on where the Star Wars: The Last Jedi model will hit the shelves, but judging by the language used on the pamphlet, it’s safe to say it will debut in China.

Nothing’s set in stone

We should note, however, that nothing’s set in stone – and it’s possible a harmless promotional poster for the Galaxy Note 8 has been blown out of proportion.
