Samsung brand is adept in releasing special-edition themed smartphones, like the previous Galaxy phones having Batman logos and Star Wars themes in the past. The latest collaboration from Samsung is the Galaxy S20 Plus BTS Edition, with a matching set of Galaxy Buds Plus. However, the icing on the cake is the unique iridescent purple exterior themed with the K-pop group. The device has a BTS logo on the backside and the band’s heart iconography portrayed on the camera array.
