Samsung Galaxy Note Olympic Games Edition Officially Unveiled

The new Samsung Galaxy S3 was officially announced on May 3. The device will be the official phone of the Olympic Games which will take place this summer in London. It’s not a surprise at all because Samsung is one of the official sponsors of the Olympic Games and it’s a great marketing strategy to boost its new flagship smartphone.

To make things more interesting, O2 (a mobile carrier in the UK) announced the release of the new Olympic Games editions of two Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Y. The devices feature either the Team GB or the Union Jack logo emblazoned on the back covers.

If you buy one of these phones you will be donating a £1 (appreciatively $1.55) to Team GB athletes of the future. Also, you will have the possibility to win an “exclusive Team Samsung experience” which means you can win a couple of tickets to the Olympic Games. The tickets will allow you access to the training cap of Team GB and its celebration event. All the events are taking place in London. The Samsung Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Y can be purchased through the website of O2. Both handsets will come with the standard black back cover.

The Samsung Galaxy Note has an impressive 5.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels and a pixel density of 285. The phone has an internal storage of either 16GB or 32GB which can be expanded with a microSD that can be up to 32GB. The primary camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note is situated on the back of the phone and it’s an 8MP shooter with autofocus and LED flash. The device is powered by a Dual-Core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Y is a low-end device having a TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and a 133 ppi pixel density. It has only 180 MB of internal storage with 290 MB user available RAM. However, it features a microSD slot which can accept up to 32GB. The phone’s camera is not so great having only 2 MP and it doesn’t feature any front shooter. As for the processor, the Samsung Galaxy Y is powered by an 830 MHz ARMv6 CPU.
