Gotcha! New Glossy Black version of the Galaxy S7 edge leaked in its full glory, looks stunning


A couple of days ago, we reported that Samsung is pegged to be working on a new 'glossy black' color variant for its Galaxy S7/S7 edge. To be honest the Onyx Black crop of Galaxies is already rather glossy but is it obviously not glossy enough for Samsung.

In case you've been wondering how much glossier these can become, then lucky you, a leaked trove of real-life pictures originating from Weibo gives us a pretty good sneak peek at the new color version will look like and compare it with the existing Onyx Black one. While it's not easy to discern if Samsung is using a new hue of black or not, it is quite easy to spot that the new device sports a stealthy and quite appealing matte black metal frame on its side. That's unlike the regular Onyx Black Galaxy S7/S7 edge, which has a grey-colored metal side frame.

We feel that Samsung could have applied this paint job to the Galaxy S7 frame from the very beginning, but didn't due to some reason or another.

This new color option is most definitely an answer to Apple's glossy Jet Black iPhone 7 goodness, which employs a shiny finish that's not at all resistant to fingerprints, smudges, or even scratches - even Apple recommends using a case with this one. We don't expect the blacker Galaxy S7 to be different in this regard, at least when it comes to fingerprint smudges.

This new color version of the Galaxy S7/S7 edge is expected hit the shelves sometime in December, just in time for your late Holidays' shopping.
