In an unexpected move, Samsung has released a limited-edition “Pirates of the Caribbean”-themed Galaxy S8 in China.
The special edition phone is a marketing tie-in for Disney’s new film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and ships in a skull-emblazoned treasure chest. Inside the box there is also a collectible ring.
The device will have all the same specs as a regular Galaxy S8, because it is a regular Galaxy S8. All the special-edition content is housed in a smart clip-on case.
When the case is attached to the phone, the UI will become Pirates-themed, complete with a new background and app icons.
The limited edition phone is only available on JD.com, and costs close to $US900. There are no signs of a North American release, so if you want to get your hands on one you’ll have to set sail to China.
