Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Red Bull Ring Edition models have been launched by Vodafone in the Netherlands, targeted at Formula One fans. Both handsets are bundled with a special Red Bull Ring case, which is named after the Austrian Grand Prix track, and come with preloaded content such as Grand Prix wallpapers and videos. The limited edition Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are available on Vodafone Netherlands until April 27.
While the Galaxy S9 Red Bull Ring Edition can be owned with a monthly plan of EUR 48 (roughly Rs. 3,890), the Galaxy S9+ Red Bull Ring Edition comes at EUR 55 (roughly Rs. 4,460) a month. The monthly plan includes 6GB of data as well as unlimited calling and SMS. Customers opting Vodafone’s Red Bull subscription plans will get two weekend tickets to the Austrian Grand Prix, excluding the flight and stay charges.
To give the feel of Formula One tracks right in your hand, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Red Bull Ring Edition models have Grand Prix and Red Bull Ring wallpapers, app icons, and screensavers on the Always On Display. Also, there is access to Grand Prix video content from Dutch sports channel Ziggo Sport. The bundled Red Bull Ring case uses NFC to change the theme once you put it on the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+.
Specification-wise, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Red Bull Ring Edition will be identical to their original models.
