Long live the Supreme Leader.


Samsung is getting in on The Rise of Skywalker hype with a limited edition Star Wars Galaxy Note 10 Plus. The phone is styled after Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, with a sleek black body, red accents and a First Order logo etched on the back.

It comes with a specially designed leather case, a metal badge for collectors, an S Pen that looks a whole lot like Kylo Ren's red-bladed lightsaber and Galaxy Buds, the Korean phone company said Monday. You also get exclusive Star Wars-themed digital stuff like wallpapers, shutdown animations, icons and sounds.

Pre-orders start at 12:01 a.m. ET Dec. 6, Samsung announced Thursday. You can pre-order the phone from Samsung.com, Samsung Experience Stores, Amazon.com and Best Buy.
