Samsung launches the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition

Samsung launches the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition
Samsung today started selling the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition, a special Galaxy S7 edge that obviously honors the 2016 Summer Olympics held in August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There is no regular Galaxy S7 Olympic Games Edition (as initially believed), so you're out of luck if, for whatever reason, you don't like the dual curve design of the S7 edge.

The Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition is being released in a handful of countries: the US, Brazil, China, South Korea, and Germany. Mind you, each country gets only 2,016 Olympic-themed S7 edge units, so you should hurry up and buy one if this is the phone of your dreams. The handset comes in a black / dark blue color adorned with various elements in the five colors of the Olympic Rings: blue, red, green, yellow and black. The UI (including the lock screen and the notification bar) also features Olympic elements, while the packaging - a practical, re-usable pouch - is custom-made. That aside, the device is not different, specs-wise, from any other normal S7 edge (priced at $770 unlocked).

In the US, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition costs $849.99, and is listed only at Best Buy (see the source link at the end of this article). The handset is not yet available to order, but we assume it will be in stock starting the next few hours. Meanwhile, you can check out the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition in the official video and images below.

Samsung is a Worldwide Olympic Partner, and will offer Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition phones to all athletes participating at Rio 2016 (a total of 12,500 devices).

Ok it's time to check your @$$. The Galaxy S vs iPhone 6S+ 128GB. Both $849USB IPhone has no branding just an Apple logo. 2GB of RAM, 1080p resolution display, front camera on records up to 1080p, 2700mah battery, still takes 3 hours or more to charge and has force touch. This vs the Galaxy S which is IP68 rated against water and suat, 3600mah battery, charges from 0 to 100 in 88 mins, has full multi let asking, 4GB ram, floating windows, front camera record at 1440p, display is 1440p, rear camera takes better photos, better video, focuses faster than any phone sold so far, looks better (subjective), has expandable storage and I can list 50 things it can do out the box that the iPhone can't do, and out of 50, a jailbroken iPhone will still not be able to do 25 of those things. All for the same price. You are an idiot. If you are actually a girl, you give girls a bad name. If you are a male child, then we'll when you get old enough to get someone pregant...HOW ABOUT YOU DON'T. We have enough retard stupid ignorant deadbeats in the world. We don't need you making more of them.

"IPhone has no branding just an Apple logo." A) A logo IS BRANDING! And what does the iPhone have to do with this.....like, at all? "You are an idiot. If you are actually a girl, you give girls a bad name." B) What are you 12? Scratch that......10 years old? "If you are a male child, then we'll when you get old enough to get someone pregant...HOW ABOUT YOU DON'T." C) Oh God.....where should I begin here? There's only so much stupid a man can digest without vomiting. "We have enough retard stupid ignorant deadbeats in the world. We don't need you making more of them." D) I'm assuming you're one of these good sir? I mean, why else waste our time with this drivel? Oh and btw, that's not how genes work lol :D. Just thought you should know that.

I didn't ask you for your opinion, and I don't even care. Apple is a brand. When I spoke of branding, it means associating your product with another brand. You're not even smart enough to understand Here is how "branding" is defined the promotion of a particular product or company by means of advertising and distinctive design. Here is the difference. Samsung is promoting their particular product, and advertising it to create some hype and support for an outside brand. I know what Apple's logo is for. Yes it is "their" brand. But every company has their "brand". when I said it had no branding. I am talking about a product that si being branded with another companies brand to promote something unique. The iPhone isn't unique. The Galaxy itself is not unique. But when you take a Galaxy and you apply custom branding like DC Comic book hero's, or the Olympics, then you create a distinct design around it, it becomes something better and different on some level. Which if why they ask a higher price. But more of my point was, the fool was complain the phone is almost $900 and yet others have them too. None of them have special unique branding, which costs extra money to license. It created a special unique product that will be sold in limited qualities which also drive up the cost. This vs other phones that would cost the same, and have lesser specs, no special "branding" and no uniqueness. But you're a cheerleader, you wouldn't understand.

Forget about any updates. With a slightly tweaked software that's enough to not get updated.

Wow, almost $900 for a phone, but hey, is a crazy election year, why not? Someone will bite and swallow the hook.

http://www.apple.com/shop/buy-iphone/iphone6s/5.5-inch-display-128gb-rose-gold $949 direct from Apple. No Olympic branding, and has less than a quarter of the features the Galaxy S has. How many sheep's have bitten that hook?

It is Apple baby, Apple not Samsung. Features!!!! Which features? Lags? Restart?

my Note 5 doesn't lag, nor do I need to restart it. Has way more features than your overpriced toy. I will make you a deal. The day the iPhone can do all of the thinsg my phone of choice can do for the same price, then we will talk. Until then, unless you can actually bring something to the table, let the adults talk. I get tied of you kids, bashing countlessly for no reason. Yes I agree this phone is expensive. Yet ti costs exactly the same as another phone which is spec'd less and has no license branding on it. But yet is never called in to question about price. A $220 phone that costs almost $900 or as much as $1500 in some country's, with the same specs and capabilities you find in a $400 phone vs a phone at the same cost, which cost nearly $300 to make, is sold on retail for $770 average and does more and has a host of beneficial things like something as simply as water-proofing. Its very simple, only a fool would complain about something that does more costing more vs paying more for a phone that does less. That is what I would complain about. if you get more, you should pay more. Right? But if you get less, shouldn't you pay less? A base model car doesn't cost more or as much as one full loaded...right?
