Samsung is lending Galaxy Note 5 phablets for free to users travelling to South Korea.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a powerful device that gained positive reviews, and Samsung wants those who visit its home country of South Korea to try out the phablet for free.
With this in mind, the company teamed up with the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) and SK Telecom to offer an attractive deal to tourists visiting South Korea. The program is called "Enjoy Mobile Korea," and it comes with attractive perks.
Each week, 250 visitors arriving at Incheon International Airport will get a free Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for a 5-day trial.
To further sweeten the deal, these trial handsets come with preloaded SIM cards that offer unlimited calls and text, as well as 1 GB of data to fend off those costly international roaming charges.
What's in it for Samsung? Well, the company hopes that users who get to enjoy the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for free for 5 days will fall in love with the device and be convinced to buy one when their trip is over.
Whether or not they decide to purchase a Galaxy Note 5 after this free trial, lucky travelers still get to enjoy a great experience. For five days, they get to loan a high-end smartphone with a prepaid card carrying sufficient perks without paying a dime. Trial users will surely boast about their experience, which in turn will translate to awesome publicity for Samsung.
Those planning to visit South Korea in the near future could register for the trial and be among the lucky winners of this offer. Head over to Samsung's press release to learn more.
Samsung will start distributing the trial Galaxy Note 5 units this month, taking applicants in order. This means that the program relies on a first come, first served scheme, so interested customers might want to hurry. Only 250 units are available for this loan program, and more than 3,000 people arrive at Seoul each week.
As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 features a 5.7-inch QHD display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 4 GB of RAM, Mali-T760MP8 graphics, a 16-megapiel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery (non-removable). Other highlights include a biometric scanner, a heart rate sensor, and the S Pen stylus.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best smartphones of 2015, and this offer sounds quite tempting.
