Remember how Apple iPhone fans suddenly got dreaming about a Space Black iPhone 7 when renders popped up online? It was something on everyone’s wish list, an all-black iPhone, that many desired, but one that Apple simply cannot deliver. Those rumours were recently shot down when a recent leak revealed the iPhone 7 in the same old colour options. Talking about cool looking smartphones, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Edition is quite the looker. Jaw-dropping renders aside, it comes with the Olympic Games trim that is apparent on both the outside and in the software inside.
Turns out Samsung will be putting the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Edition up for sale, but not everyone may be able to get one. The Korean Herald reports that Samsung will be putting these up for sale in South Korea on 18 July for a price tag of 1,067,000 won, which is a cool Rs 64,000 (approximately). The currently available Samsung Galaxy S7 edge currently retails for Rs 56,900 in India. Technically, what you get for the extra Rs 7,000 is a new paint job that will get you plenty of attention.
We like how tastefully Samsung has themed the smartphone using the colour from the Olympics rings without going all out in a tacky way. The metal frame that normally comes in a steel grey finish now comes in matte black that looks really cool.
The colours stand out from the rest of the black body and even though the renders showcase a matte finish for the display, we are pretty sure the colourful UX with the Olympics theme will stand out as well. Samsung being the main sponsor of the 2016 Olympic Games to be held in Rio, will also be handing out 12,500 of these limited edition handsets to sportsmen who take part this year.
As for those interested in buying one off the shelves, you do get a free GearVR headset in the box and around 100 randomly selected buyers will also get the new Gear IconX wireless Bluetooth earbuds. For now, the limited edition smartphone will only be available in select markets including Brazil, the United States, China, Germany and South Korea, there are no details about when the handset will be launched in India.
