Samsung's Olympic Games Edition flagships now official
The South Korean tech giant made the limited edition Galaxy S7 Edge handsets finally official yesterday, just as anticipated. While this is not the first time when Samsung releases a limited edition flagship, but it surely looks different from a certain point of view.
According to Samsung, no less than 12,500 Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition and Gear IconX will be handed to all Rio 2016 Olympians, "helping them to enhance their experiences in Rio and communicate with family and friends around the world more conveniently."
The handsets feature a custom colorway patten that uses the five official colors of the Olympic Rings, which will also be present in the home and lock screens, as well as other areas of the Android user interface. Even more, a pre-loaded set of Rio 2016 Olympic Games themed wallpapers will also be present.
Fans and consumers will only have 2,016 units at their disposal, and the United States will get them exclusively via Best Buy, starting July 18th. In Germany, pre-orders are already live, and the price tag reads no less than $970 USD.
