For some reason, Samsung is releasing a Pirates of The Caribbean-themed Galaxy S8. Spec-wise, the phone isn’t any different than the standard Galaxy S8, save for a fancy box, some wallpaper, and a case. But when Disney is trying to make a film with a $230 million budget a success... well, this is what you get.

The phone, which is currently on sale at, only comes in the 4GB of RAM + 64GB of storage version, and retails for $880. It also comes with a special phone ring holder.

Honestly, there’s no reason to buy this. But if you are a huge Johnny Depp fan (or, more likely, Johnny Depp himself) your dreams of a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed cellphone case and wallpaper can be fulfilled. Or you could just go to the flea market, buy a knockoff case, and wait until someone uploads the wallpaper to Reddit and save approximately $870.

Your call.
