Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now over a month old since it was released on March 11. Initially, the phone was available in four color variants; however, the South Korean tech giant has jumped in with a fifth variant.
The pink gold variant is the fifth variant in question here and as for now, it is only available in the company’s home country. But of course, the color variant is expected to reach other markets in the coming days. The other variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are silver, platinum gold, white as well as black. This is a huge step for Samsung as it looks to keep up with the competition coming from Apple as far as the rose gold color variant is concerned. However, this will probably catalyze the usual debate of Samsung copying a lot of stuff from Apple.
If you live in South Korea or are planning to travel there any day this week, you can grab yourself a new Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge that features the pink gold color. Alternatively, you can begin working on plans to ship this version to your country since Samsung claims that the variant will only be availed in “select markets” across the globe. Who knows, your region might be left out.
Since Samsung hasn’t said a thing about which regions exactly will be receiving the pink gold Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, we are unsure whether the color variant will reach the United States. However, given Samsung’s fierce rivalry with Apple in the region, there are chances that this variant might hit the U.S. market even sooner than expected.
No changes under the hood
Other than the changes that have brought in the new pink gold color variant, there is really nothing new that this new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge come in with when compared to other color variants. This is, however, not surprising. You will come across the same Exynos 8890 (Snapdragon 820) chipset under the hood in addition to 4GB RAM as well as 32GB of expandable storage. The camera setup also remains the same, with 12MP and 5MP sensors on the rear and front respectively. The pink gold Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are also powered by the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The water and dust resistance features that made their way back this year are also available on this variant. So, basically, the only change here is the color.
