Samsung Galaxy Note 8 X 99 Avant Limited Edition Launched in South Korea
Launching smartphones with some customization in the guise of a limited edition is becoming a common trend among manufacturers despite putting them in a higher price tag. Yesterday, we saw the launch of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars limited edition. Now, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 8 X 99 Avant Limited Edition in Korea.
The smartphone is designed by joining hands with 99 Avant and will be limited to only 99 units. The limited unit has no special designs on the casting but offers a separate hand-crafted case that features exclusive artwork with a tiger theme and the signature of Han Seung-Woo. The device sports a unique AVA code to attest to its authenticity. Additionally, we are getting some specially made wallpapers and icons based on artworks from 99 Avant. Also, we will have a separate print (69 x 45 cm)in size that we can hang on the wall.
Besides the mentioned customizations, the device has 256 GB of storage. The device is a standard Galaxy Note 8 with the same specs and the inbuilt stylus. Currently, the device is only available in Korea and has a considerable price tag of 1,991,000 Won (Rs. 1,17,227 approx).
This is a considerable price leap from the regular version but also a limited edition variant. It’s common to see these limited editions with a significant price tag, as evident from the launch of the LG V30 signature edition priced at $1,800 ( Rs 1,17,000 approx). The question is, what are these customizations worth the considerable price tag associated with these phones? After all, we are just getting artwork customizations and not spec upgrades.
