The truth is, the catalog of Android phones is incredible. Hundreds of devices of all designs, colors, sizes and prices. From the most expensive Samsung like the Galaxy S20 Ultra to the humblest Motorola, like the Moto E6 Play.
Now, in addition to the normal models that we all know and that anyone can buy in a store, the brands often design limited edition models. They are devices that are produced in a few units and are used to commemorate an event, to advertise a different brand or simply because companies want to attract attention. A clear example are OnePlus and McLaren.
However, there are limited edition models that can only be found in certain regions. Rare phones with a lot of collectible value that are simply a marvel to look at. For example, all these devices that Phone Arena shows us and that, unfortunately, they never left the Asian borders.

Samsung has dedicated a Galaxy A80 to Blackpink, a moderately successful South Korean pop group. In addition to having music, sounds and animations from the musical group, its colors are pink and black. And it is that Samsung and K-Pop are old acquaintances, as the Galaxy S20 BTS edition shows.
