Planning on visiting South Korea? Samsung will lend you a free Galaxy Note 5 for your stay

by John_A


If you’re planning a trip to South Korea anytime soon, we have some fantastic news for you. The Korea Tourism Organization has teamed up with Samsung and SK Telecom to offer a free Galaxy Note 5 for a 5-day trial to 250 visitors arriving at Incheon International Airport each week. The handsets will come with a pre-loaded SIM with unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of data — so you won’t have to fork out for any hefty international roaming charges or go through the process of registering for a local prepaid service.

The objective of this scheme is, of course, to encourage more people to check out Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5. The manufacturer hopes that after 120-hours of using the device, you’ll fall in love with it and want to pick one up when you return to your home country. It’s also a pretty unique experience to loan a smartphone without having to pay a penny when visiting a foreign region, so you will almost certainly want to tell your friends about how you got to use the company’s latest flagship, which is great publicity for Samsung.

For those in need of a refresher on the devices specifications, the Note 5 packs a 5.7-inch qHD display, a 1.5GHz and 2.1GHz Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a Mali-T760MP8 GPU, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 3,000mAh Li-Po non-removable battery. There’s also a super-snappy biometric scanner hidden in the phone’s home key, and a heart rate sensor on the rear just below the camera module.

If you like the sound of this promotion and are visiting South Korea in the very near future, hit the source link below to head over to the KTO website where you will be able to register your interest in the scheme. Phones will start being distributed later this month on a first come, first served basis, so you better act fast as with only 250 units available and over 3000 people flying in to Seol each week, they’re definitely not going to be there for long.
