This Galaxy S7 Edge gets into the Olympic spirit
Do you wanna get into the Olympic spirit?
Samsung has, that's why there's this Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition phone.
The long last name for device that adds a few little nods to the Rio games, but what the heck.
It's a fun variation on the S7 edge family and Samsung is giving one to each Olympian this summer.
The handset has an icon of the Olympic Rings on it's back and you can also load a subtle wallpaper with the same motif.
But much more interesting to me, are the flashes of color that accent the phone.
And these correspond to the official Olympic Rings.
The color scheme is also one that you will find inside the devise Mostly on Samsung Native apps and skins.
Different, it's fun.
I like it.
The phone is part of the Edge family, so you still get all those good hardware features and curves.
Like a programmable Edge display.
This special edition device goes on sale July 18th in certain countries.
You'll need to check with retailers for your local prices and availability.
