    Samsung is now a Gold Partner of Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games

    Samsung has been a Worldwide Paralympic Partner for the past couple of years, and the company has now reportedly become a Gold Partner of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games in the ‘Wireless Communications Equipment' category.

    As a Worldwide Paralympic Partner, Samsung has the right to use Paralympic Games emblem and designation in its marketing campaigns, but it won't be able to use the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games emblem. Those rights are reserved only for domestic sponsors, who can use designations including Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

    Samsung might support athletes with new special edition smartphones

    Time will tell if Samsung will create a limited edition Galaxy smartphone for Paralympians, as it did a couple of years ago at the PyeongChang Paralympics. Back then, the company gave out limited-edition Galaxy Note 8 models to all athletes competing in the Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics.

    While there is no news on this matter, perhaps Samsung is cooking a special edition Galaxy S20 model, or even a Galaxy Note 11/Note 20 for Paralympians. The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are scheduled to take place this year from August 25 to September 6, and the next Galaxy Note model in the series is most likely to be unveiled around the same time at Unpacked around IFA.

    Samsung should have ample time to prepare special edition devices for these athletes, but if it does, don't expect to be able to buy them as fans of the brand. Samsung already offered the Galaxy S10+ Olympic Games Edition to the public in Japan last year, and it's unclear if it will commercialize other, newer Olympics Edition phones in 2020.
