Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10 Plus Star Wars Special Edition smartphone in the US. This handset celebrates the upcoming theatrical release of the final film of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker. The movie hits the theatres on December 20.
Samsung announced the Star Wars edition Galaxy Note 10 Plus last month. The package consists of a Kylo Ren-themed Note 10 Plus and a red lightsaber-inspired S Pen. There'll be a matching pair of Galaxy Buds as well as an embossed leather cover in the box. Samsung is also offering a unique metal badge as a collector's item. The Sith-inspired package also comes with exclusive Star Wars-themed content including wallpapers, shutdown animations, icons, and sounds.
As far as the handset is concerned, it gets a completely black body with red accents around its rear-facing cameras, and power and volume buttons. The back of the phone features a Sith Empire logo sandwiched between Samsung and Star Wars brandings.
Apart from these painting changes, everything else remains same as the regular Galaxy Note 10 Plus. You get a device with a metal and glass body featuring a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED curved display. There are three vertically-stacked cameras on the back and a single front-facing camera. You also get 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. You might want to read our review to find what's good and what's bad about this device.

Samsung is charging $1,300 for this special edition Galaxy Note 10 Plus package. Note that the regular Galaxy Note 10 Plus costs $1,100 for the 256GB variant.
