Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Edition coming next week
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.
