Today sees the official start of the Olympic Games, with the opening ceremony soon to kick off in London. Samsung, being a big Olympic sponsor, has decided to support the home team with a new series of official limited edition Team GB Galaxy S III (Galaxy S3) phones. Similar to the designs seen on the Olympic edition Galaxy Note, the Team GB Galaxy S3 models feature the union flag on a pebble blue background, or the Team GB lion on a marble white background.
Thoughtfully, Samsung realizes you might not want to celebrate the 2012 games throughout the entire multi-year life of the phone, so it's including a standard pebble blue or marble white back along with these Team GB designs. The Team GB Galaxy S3s will be available exclusively from the Carphone Warehouse from next Wednesday, Aug. 1, and will be offered on a range of contracts starting at £28 per month.
We've got Samsung's full press release after the break.
