Samsung’s most recent phablet flagship handset might be on the Christmas shopping list for many smartphone fans this year, but they won’t have access to a special Galaxy Note 4 the company has prepared for the holidays. SamMobile reports that a Velvet Red version of the Galaxy Note 4 is going to be available to buyers in South Korea, and it’s unlikely for it to hit other markets anytime soon.

Part of a RED Collection at SK Telecom, alongside the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and he Galaxy W, the Velvet Red Galaxy Note 4 won’t have any other special features under the hood when compared to existing Galaxy Note 4 models.

The phone packs a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD support, 16-megapixel camera, 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera, fingerprint sensor, heart rate sensor, LTE, 3,200 mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 KitKat upgradeable to Lollipop.

In addition to this Christmas Galaxy Note 4 edition, Samsung is reportedly working on a slightly improved Galaxy Note 4 model that will pack the speedier 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor.
