Teaser reveals July 7th unveiling for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition

Teaser reveals July 7th unveiling for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition
Back in March, we told you that Samsung was planning on offering a special Olympic Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Three months later, press renders of the device were leaked. Today, Sammy's German subsidiary released a teaser that reveals a July 7th unveiling for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition.

Inside the Galaxy S7 edge Olympics Edition, we don't expect to see any changes to the unit's specs. On the outside, you might notice the use of yellow trim around the home button and elsewhere on the front of the device. On the side, red and green are employed with blue used for the Olympic logo on the back of the phone. Those, of course, are the Olympic colors. We also could see the handset loaded with special Olympic themed apps.

This isn't the first time that Samsung has honored the Olympics with a special edition phone. Four years ago, limited edition models of the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the Samsung Galaxy Note were produced to celebrate the 2012 Olympics, and a special version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 celebrated the Winter Olympics in 2014.

On July 7th, Samsung will continue the tradition by introducing the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition. On that date we should learn everything about the device, from pricing to availability.

I didn't. I wanted it to be though! The sly marketing for the Note 7 is working very well on me. If there's at least a 128 gigabyte model on sale through my carrier I will order one the moment it goes on sale.

There won't be. People buying those phones are too damn cheap and barely buy the 32gb ones. I have seen only 2 32gb s3's, 2 32gb s4's, and no 32gb s5's working in the phone store I work at. Only recently have I seen more people start buying the 64gb s6/edge/note5. Even the Nexus devices, most companies would only sell one storage size. So they should have 32 and 64, but 128 is doubtful in carrier stores.

Aaaaaaand they are gonna charge 600 more USD just for the olympic logo. TechieXP is gonna come and start explaining how this is limited edition and the value would increase in time, hell no, to this date no electronic have increased in value unless it has a significant historic value. Dumb olympic editions of any smartphone ain't one of those.

Well while that 'is' generally true. There are a select few, (read: few as in very few) collectors of such items, and to them, and only them, the value will rise. But there are definitely more devices then there are collectors, so to the average person, the value won't go up.

Xondk, you seem like a solid substitute of Teachie... What, no Teachie? Listen to Xondk... What? Neither Teachie nor Xondk? Then in sure you'd love to listen to "MinusGenius"... Yeah, he is a GENIUS alright... But only... in MINUS! Ah! On second thought... For the love of God, stop this Fanboyism nonsense and Blind Praise of your Idol, The Samsung... You know, sometimes I wonder if individuals like Teachie actually worship their smartphones and consider it a religion? Techno Religion? I mean, why else they would blindly, BLINDLY praise Samsung Phones? Some Fanboy Comments almost make me pull my (once gorgeous) hairs, really... Oh well, G'Day!

With what you are trying to imply, your post seems quite odd. What I stated has nothing to do with being a fanboy or similar, there are collectors of virtually everything, and to those limited edition values go up? would be entirely the same with any other product then samsung as limited edition, note that I say Zunaidahmed, is generally true, but saying that they increase in value isn't false, it is just with a highly limited amount of people it will happen? I would say the same regardless of brand, I am not brand loyal :) so maybe take the prejudice you are throwing at me and reconsider that you might be reacting to something that is not there? And to note, I know these exist because I've sold a few things to such collectors, they happily pay silly amounts for silly things.
