South Korea's second-largest commercial airline teamed up with Samsung to offer a special edition of both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to its customers. These exclusive handsets can only be purchased using mileage points.

Samsung's latest flagships have been well received by both the public and the press, but most people agree they do not come cheap. However, frequent fliers who use South Korea's second-largest airline and happen to have a lot of mileage points at their disposal will soon be able to get a limited edition Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ only by using these points.

The upcoming limited edition handsets are expected to arrive in the second part of the month, and those interested can sign up until April 17. The price equals to 30,000 mileage points, the stock being limited to 2,000 units. Sadly, these handsets will never hit retail. The technical specs are exactly those of the regular Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets, only that the Asiana Airlines Edition units come with an exclusive theme and the airline's logo shows up when the display is turned on.

Last year, Samsung and Asiana teamed up and launched a similar limited edition of the Galaxy S7 lineup as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
