Samsung is continuing to offer special editions of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to various partners as it looks to market its smartphone to not just consumers, but also large enterprises. For the moment, they only seem to be collaborating with businesses in South Korea.

Samsung revealed three versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones designed specifically for local companies and their customers. At their press conference in South Korea, the company introduced three phones are called the Galaxy S8 HanaCard, Galaxy S8 Shinsegae, and Galaxy S8 K-Bank editions.

What makes these phones special is their increased security through Samsung’s Knox customization, which allows devices to have their UI and UX tailored to the needs of a specific business. For example, the HanaCard edition enables usage of the credit card company’s membership points and allows customers access to billing information, as well as the option to pay their bills through their mobile device.

The Shinsegae edition will be used to assist in the retail business, while the K-Bank edition is designed to work with the internet bank’s services. Last week, they also released a version specifically for Asiana Airlines which helps customers view flight information and provides memory chip services.

Samsung says it intends to create more enterprise editions of the Galaxy S8 for other partners, though it is unclear on whether they will collaborate with businesses outside of South Korea.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
