Samsung wants to do everything to ensure that it gets back some, if not all, of the losses it made with the Galaxy Note 7.
Now that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is no more, the tech giant has been making smart moves in the industry, altering the colors offered for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Well, the latter has been subject to a recent update where it received a blue coral version that first appeared with the Galaxy Note 7. According to the latest reports, the South Korean tech giant wants to borrow a page from Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus page by rolling out a jet black color variant.
If you remember well, this is the same color variant that saw a huge demand – demand that led to shortages and hence delays in shipping of the said phone. Samsung also wants to be part of this craze, hoping that more buyers will come in as the company finalizes on the Galaxy S8.
The news about Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge getting a new jet black or rather glossy black color variant is just another indicator of how desperate Samsung is to fill the void left behind by the impressive (before it started blowing up) Galaxy Note 7. Unlike the blue coral version that has remained exclusive to the Galaxy S7 Edge, the new jet black color will hit all two units of the S7. Keep in mind that Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge already have black onyx color variants, however, this is nothing close to what you get with the jet black finish of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
As far as pricing of the new glossy black color variant is concerned, no changes are expected since you get the same specs and features as those available on earlier models of both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Apple warns that the jet black color variant easily catches scratches, however, Samsung’s units are protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 technology, meaning the idea of catching scratches is out of the picture.
