Samsung’s Starbucks collab Galaxy Buds case is silly and pointless and I want one

Say this for Starbucks: its coffee may mostly just taste like burning, but its merch tends to be on point.

The latest example, as spotted by 9to5Google, is a collaboration with Samsung (in South Korea only, unfortunately)

that created branded cases for the Galaxy S22 lineup and the Galaxy Buds 2.

One of the Buds 2 case options is a dark green case with a Starbucks logo.

The other is a small white mug with a handle and fake latte art whose top swivels away to reveal your earbuds.

Thanks to the giant mermaid logo on the side, it won’t appeal to anyone other than the most diehard of Starbucks javaheads,

and I suppose I should point out that I’ve never had a Starbucks barista draw

a perfect foam leaf on top of my drink, but I love it nonetheless.

Samsung has a history with fun cases like these, too.
