We knew that the phone existed. It was obvious from the fact that Samsung is the official partner of the Rio Olympics that are set to start soon and it will release a version of the flagship s7 edge phone that honors the games. Now we finally get a glimpse of the elusive phones and I must say that I am not disappointed.
The Galaxy S7 edge is a beautiful phone. It has always been. But a look at the leaked images suggests that Samsung can make a beautiful phone more desirable by adding colorful hints to it. The Korean tech giant seems to have already readied the phone but has been waiting for the news coverage of the games to hype up before revealing it to the world.
This isn’t the first time that Samsung has an Olympic edition of the flagship. The last Olympics that were held in the year 2012 saw the launch of the Galaxy S3 and the Note 3 Olympic edition but I have to say they weren’t much exciting.
But the S7 edge seems to have something going. It will obviously come with loads of software goodies related to the Olympics. Maybe Samsung could even throw in the tickets for the games. As for the phone itself. It isn’t much different from the regular S7 edge. The specifications remain the same but the body now has gold hints on the front and blue on the back.
Last month also saw the release of the S7 edge injustice edition in honor of batman. It was pretty pricey but made the phone stood out among the crowd of similar looking devices. There is also the Galaxy S7 active variant and the mini version of the flagship is rumored to be in works.
