Samsung is set to release a limited edition, Vietnam-only smartphones, to honor the country’s South Korean football coach Park Hang-seo.
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ Park Hang-seo Limited Edition will be released on Sunday to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the Vietnamese football team under Park, the company said in a press release.
“Through this limited edition of Samsung Galaxy S10+, we hope to accompany coach Park Hang-seo to inspire and send a message of ‘Doing the Impossible’ to Vietnamese soccer fans,” Nguyen Quang Hien Huy, deputy director of Samsung Vina Electronics, said.
It will come with a cover with a picture and signature of Park and a wireless charger.
The phone, around 5,000 units of which will be sold, is expected to cost VND23.99 million ($1,028).
Samsung, the world’s biggest smartphone maker, is the largest foreign investor in Vietnam. It exported goods worth an estimated $60 billion from Vietnam last year, up 12 percent from 2017, accounting for a quarter of the country’s exports.
Its Vietnamese subsidiaries’ sales of $67 billion represented 30 percent of its global revenues.
