This limited edition handset has the same technical specs as the regular Galaxy S7 Edge and will launch on July 7th, but will have different colors and probably some custom wallpapers and themes as well.

About three months ago, an exclusive report by SamMobile claimed that Samsung was working on a limited edition flagship. Dubbed Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Edition, this handset comes to commemorate the upcoming Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. Last week, a press render of the device leaked online, and now an official announcement has been spotted on the Facebook page of Samsung Mobile Deutschland.

Samsung is one of the major sponsors of this year's sports event in Rio de Janeiro, and its customers will be able to watch it in virtual reality. Under the custom-colored hood, the Olympic Edition is expected to be a regular Galaxy S7 Edge with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage, IP68 certification for protection from the elements, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 back, a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and so on.

Unfortunately, the pricing of this limited edition flagship is not known yet. Since the company teases the device with the "Ge7 Ready" headline, most chances are it will show up on July 7. We will get back to it as soon as we find more about its availability, price, and perks, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
