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).
