(Updated September 2020 – Samsung partnership)
Are you curious to know which are BTS phones in 2020? I have been wondering myself that, so I decided to do a deep research and guess what? They just signed a partnership contract with Samsung, so BTS are currently using Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus phones – it might simply be called the “BTS Phone” 🙂 So all of the BTS members – Jin, Rapmon, Suga, J-hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook – are using the same Samsung phones and are not allowed to use their previous IPhones any longer – read till the end for a link for other hot BTS Q&A! (In order to get the best prices we recommend buying such phones from Amazon)
What phones did BTS use before 2020?
Through their activities on social media and through screen shots they drop, I was able to determine which were BTS phones before 2020, so I’m going to share with you guys all the details and explain in detail how I found that!

1. First, Jin (Kim Seok Jin) used the iPhone 11 which has a color of rose gold, I was able to determine this through a screen shot he posted on Twitter.

Now that you know what are the BTS phones, let’s briefly find who they are – or directly follow BTS questions & answers post.
Which are BTS phone numbers?
Even if we received this question one million times, it’s clear that no one can say which are BTS phone numbers – otherwise they will become simply unusable because of so many phones received 🙂
Who are BTS?
According to Wikipedia, BTS also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed in Seoul in 2013.
The septet co-writes and produces much of their output.
Originally a hip hop group, their musical style has evolved to include a wide range of genres.
Their lyrics, often focused on personal and social commentary, touch on the themes of mental health, troubles of school-age youth, loss, the journey towards loving oneself, and individualism.
Their work features references to literature and psychological concepts and includes an alternative universe storyline.
Popular for their live performances, the group have staged several world tours.
The group initially formed as teenagers under Big Hit Entertainment and released their debut single album, 2 Cool 4 Skool (2013).
Subsequent work such as their first U.S. Billboard 200 entries The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2 (2015), The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever (2016), and Wings (2016) helped establish BTS’ reputation as a socially conscious group.
Wings became BTS’ first album to sell one million copies in South Korea. By 2017, BTS crossed into the international music market, leading the Korean Wave into the United States and breaking numerous sales records, becoming the first Korean group to receive a certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) with their single “Mic Drop”.
The band is the first and only Korean act as of 2019 to top the U.S. Billboard 200 with their studio album Love Yourself: Tear (2018) and have since hit the top of the U.S. charts with their albums Love Yourself: Answer (2018) and Map of the Soul: Persona (2019), making BTS the first group since The Beatles to earn three number one albums in less than a year.
Love Yourself: Answer also broke South Korea’s Gaon Album Chart’s all-time monthly record previously set by Love Yourself: Tear and became the first Korean album certified Gold in the United States.
Having sold over fifteen million albums, BTS are the best-selling artist in South Korea of all time, and hold the best-selling album in Korean history with Map of the Soul: Persona.
BTS were the second best-selling artists of 2018 worldwide according to the IFPI’s Global Artist Chart, as well as the only non-English speaking artist to enter the chart. The group has won Top Social Artist three years in a row and Top Duo/Group at the 26th Billboard Music Awards.
Featured on Time’s international cover as “Next Generation Leaders”, BTS has appeared in the magazine’s 25 most influential people on the internet (2017–2019) and Time’s 100 most influential people in the world (2019), with the outlet giving them the nickname ‘Princes of Pop’. Forbes Korea named BTS the most influential celebrities of Korea in 2018, and BTS ranked 43rd in the Forbes Celebrity 100 (2019) as one of the world’s top-earning celebrities.
In June 2019, BTS became the first Asian artist ever to headline and sell out Wembley Stadium. BTS are worth more than $4.65 billion to South Korea’s economy each year, attracting one in every 13 foreign tourists that visit the country, and are cited as one of the key acts boosting global music sales to $19 billion in 2018, a figure not seen since 2006 after digital purchases gained momentum.
Following their philanthropic efforts in their Love Myself anti-violence campaign in partnership with UNICEF, BTS addressed the United Nations 73rd General Assembly and became the youngest ever recipients of the Order of Cultural Merit from the President of South Korea due to their contributions in spreading Korean culture and language.
Why is BTS famous?
According to beat media, BTS genuinely cares about their fans. For Korean fans, this means almost constant appearances at concerts and fan meets, where the seven boys get to meet and talk with their fans one by one.
They are constantly engaged, taking time to talk with each ARMY and learn about them.
A quick YouTube search of BTS with fans shows multiple different interactions. From J-Hope recognizing one of their YouTube fans at a concert to Jungkook calming down a fan who was so excited to meet them that she was getting anxious, the boys interact with each fan. They tease fans, hold their hands, make eye contact, and talk with them.
This is every day life for BTS. What made them truly blow up worldwide was their first win at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017.
The award they won was Top Social Artist, and everything about that day encapsulated why fans flock to BTS in droves. I’m getting ahead of things.
Let’ start with why they were nominated. BTS is active on Twitter every day.
They share an account, @BTS_twt, where they post selfies, videos of what they’re doing, and other content. Fans adore their Twitter presence, and nowadays
BTS has garnered more than 15 million followers. With the way their Twitter account has grown, it should be at at least 16 million in less than a month.
Their Twitter also works with their other platforms used to interact with fans. There is the fancafe, where members can basically message with ARMYs, and the popular V Live account. On V Live, BTS can upload videos, both live and prerecorded, and fans can leave comments.
Sometimes the recorded ones are performances, or they may be the huge hit Run BTS! where the boys play games and complete challenges. Some examples include a zombie haunted house, escape the room, and playing badminton, which they were all hilariously terrible at.
What really shines are the live broadcasts. Usually one member, or sometimes a couple of them, just sit in their hotel room or studio and talk to the fans.
They answer questions, recommend songs or books, tell funny stories, and overall have a great time. Sometimes they stay on for an hour just to talk with fans.
Many times BTS discusses things they talk about in their lyrics as well. They give advice about loving yourself, making meaningful friendships and relationships, and encouraging them to try their best at everything. BTS assures fans that they will be there for fans through thick or thin.
We walk together, they say, and we’ll always be by each other’s side. It’s a powerful message for people of all ages, and BTS loves to spread it.
Though the live broadcasts aren’t subtitled right away, people who don’t speak Korean still watch them. I’ve done it.
What’s more, you go back and re-watch with subtitles. It’s clear the channel is super successful; they just reached 10 million followers this past week, a first for any star with a V Live channel. This constant engagement with fans makes you want to follow them and see what they’re up to.
BTS garnered enough Twitter attention to demand they be recognized. They usurped Justin Bieber in the category and became the most talked about celebrity on social media.
It was impossible for Billboard to ignore them. On the day of the event, it became clear that these seven boys were the real deal.
Since the morning, hours before the awards began, ARMYs were waiting outside with signs for their favorite singers.
You could hear them once the stars began to arrive. Popular BTS chants were organized as stars were being interviewed, and the moment BTS arrived, the crowd went nuts.
The interviewers were forced the comment on it, having their cameras pan over to the crowd and mention how wild it was to see so much support. RM, BTS’ leader, always makes it a point to reinforce how wonderful their support is the moment an interviewer brings up ARMY.
“They are,” he always says, and the rest wholeheartedly agree. When everyone was inside the event, you could see celebrities confused by the BTS chants continuing.
When the award was presented, BTS made history. Since the award’s inception in 2011, Bieber has taken home every one. 2017 marked the end. BTS took the stage to deafening applause once they were announced as the winners. The look on their faces showed that they genuinely couldn’t believe it was happening.
They thanked ARMY, all their producers, and again reminded those watching to take care of themselves and their mental health.
After the show, BTS didn’t go out and party. They returned to their hotel room to get on the V Live to thank fans again and share the victory with them.
In between a lot of the songs, they would stop and talk to fans. J-Hope told us, “You are our wings. We are soaring because of you. So we’ll fly even higher together.” V gave us a simple, “Thank you and I love you!” They were just so humble, as they always are. Most notably, RM, the most fluent in English, gave us a mini Korean lesson. He taught us “hamkke” and had us say it with him a few times, which he told us means “together.”
They may be booked for events a full year in advance, they may get millions upon millions of physical album pre-orders, but BTS will always take time out of their lives to show love to those who support them. In return, ARMY will remain loyal and only continue to grow.
