Samsung, I choose you! It seems that someone at Samsung has a strong affinity for Pokémon. After the Galaxy Z Flip 3 got its own reinvention drawing inspiration from the wildly successful franchise, the Galaxy Buds 2 are now getting a similar treatment too, according to Sammobile† The Galaxy Buds 2 Pokémon bundle was listed on Samsung’s Korean website on May 20 for a price of KRW 134,000 (or about USD 106), and has since been sold out. For now, the special edition item was only made available in South Korea, but a worldwide release is not explicitly excluded.
In the box, users will receive the standard Galaxy Buds 2, a Poké ball case for the headphones (which can also accommodate the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Pro), and a number of limited-edition stickers featuring famous Pokémon, such as Mew and Pikachu.
In this regard, this special edition bundle of Galaxy Buds 2 is in no way different from previous ones. All three special editions of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 include the standard smartphone, with just the extra contents of the exclusive themed box.
At the moment this is somewhat disappointing. Samsung really seems to love these kinds of themed limited releases, and a certain amount of ambition would be welcome. Essentially, users could always get themed merchandise themselves.
In any case, this Galaxy Buds 2 bundle has a very unique case that is sure to grab the attention of the users. Let’s hope it gets an international release.
