The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is already one of the most popular android smartphones out there.
It is probably least deserving of a special edition in order to spice up the sales figures. Yet, Samsung are keeping up with the tradition of coming out with special editions, which are made an extremely limited numbers. After having recently come out with the Batman edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the South Korean company has just launched an Olympic edition. In terms of the overall design language, the Olympic edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge islargely similar to the Batman edition but for the differences in logos.
The phone is quite striking and unique compared with the normal Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It comes with a black finish of the highest order from top to bottom. Color accents for key areas like the earpiece, fingerprint scanner, rear camera, and flash mechanism mean that thedevice is even more pleasing to look in this dark shade. Further, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has the Olympic logo in the rear.
All other aspects of the phone remain similar to the standard version and this includes the 5.2 inch QHD display with a curved screen to support it. The display uses a Super AMOLED technology with great effect. It also takes advantage of the technologies ability to switch off pixels when not in use by providing the Standby screen. The ‘Always On’ display – as it is known – is one of the finest renderings of this technology.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Batman edition which comes complete with black and gold colors only, the Olympic edition is a lot of more flexible it seems. Splashes of red and green for aspects like the power button and volume rockers provided some respite from the monotony of black.
The Olympics will take place in Rio in 2016 and the Olympic edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is primarily intended to celebrate this event. One can expect plenty of Olympic 2016 content to go into the device through exclusive apps or content straight away. One of the few aspects that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge does not come with is the stylus, which is only available with the Galaxy Note series. Apart from this hindrance, the phone comes complete with all the latest in terms of mobile technology and remains as one of the finest smartphones.
