The new glossy color option should reinvigorate sales of the nearly one year-old Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

After reassuring the public that its Galaxy S7 smartphones are completely safe to use, Samsung may soon launch another color for the smartphone outside of its original Blue Coral color. According to insiders close to the South Korean Herald, the Galaxy S7 will have a glossy black version in an attempt to increase Holiday sales of the 9-month old Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. This could be seen as an attempt to recoup some of the dramatic losses from the Galaxy Note 7 failure.

The Jet Black Apple iPhone 7 is one of the most popular colors for the manufacturer worldwide, so it makes sense that Samsung may want to emulate this particular color option. Note that the existing black Galaxy S7 is completely matte compared to the supposed upcoming glossy option.

The South Korean manufacturer is expected to formally announce the Galaxy S8 by February 2017 in time for the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Samsung had previously revealed its flagship Galaxy smartphones in this same time frame, though existing rumors have been pointing to a launch delay of the Galaxy S8 in order to iron out more bugs and improve quality control after the Note 7 fiasco. The Galaxy S7 successor could offer a higher screen-to-body ratio with Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 SoCs depending on region.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
