Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition shows up in leaked press renders9
Samsung, a traditional sponsor of the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, has a long history of launching Olympics-themed versions of its premium smartphones.
This pattern started back in 2012 when the company launched limited-edition versions of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note, continued two years ago with a Winter Olympics version of the Galaxy Note 3, and is now about to expand with the upcoming launch of a Rio 2016 edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
Just like previous special-edition Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge versions, the Olympic S7 edge will probably come with the same hardware specs as the standard version.
The Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition comes with a special color scheme that uses yellow on the front, red and green on the side, and blue on the back of the phone. These are the colors of the Olympic logo, and judging by the recent leak, the design of the phone appears to be an inspired one.
In the software department, the handset will probably come with Olympics-themed apps on top of the usual TouchWiz implementation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
At the moment, we don't have any details on pricing and availability. However, with the 2016 Summer Olympics on track to debut on August 5 in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro, chances are that an official announcement is right around the proverbial corner. We remain optimistic that the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition will not be as pricey as the Batman-themed Injustice Edition, which is priced at above $1200 in Russia.
