As we already know, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is one of the latest phones this year, not just that, it’s also one of the best, considering its features.
A limited edition has been made specially to celebrate the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio. This edition is an unlocked version unlike the Batman phone, and it would be given as gifts to every participant in the games.
The difference between this edition and the Galaxy S7 Edge that came out earlier are, the metal sides, which are black and glossy, it feels quite different in hand compared to the regular model. There are the buttons also. Samsung has customized the accents for each hardware button to correspond with the Olympics rings. The home button and earpiece are yellow, the power button is red, the volume rocker is green, and there’s a blue bezel around the camera. It looks a little funky! But it makes more sense when you realize what the phone commemorates.
The phone will be available in just one store: Best buy, in August, just in case you prefer it to the previous edition. As for the price, it’s not fixed yet but just like the regular one, it’ll be expensive.
Unfortunately, this time Samsung is not releasing the Gear VR just like it did the Batman edition, their reason for this was, since the phone was made specially to be given to athletes who have no time getting lost in the VR but would be training instead, there was no need to add it. So that’s one thing you won’t get if you’re going for the phone because of its pretty colours, it however, does come with a carrying case, large though but ok.
