However, the ships are only available to anyone with a Samsung Galaxy device that lives in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. until December 23. On that day, the rest of the U.S. and Puerto Rico will get to join in the fun until January 2.

Using some augmented reality with the Samsung Member app from the Play Store, fans will be able to take pictures of the ships zooming along their skyline to save and share. This would be the ultimate experience when paired with the new Galaxy Note 10+ Star Wars Edition.
