The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition has been made official today, after having been leaked twice so far. The finished product looks exactly as those leaked renders depicted it, complete with a “custom colorway pattern” that includes the five official colors of the Olympic Rings.
As you can see, most of the phone is black, but there are yellow accents on the front, red and green on the sides, and blue on the back. That covers all the Olympic colors then.
The handset will come with the Rio 2016 app preinstalled, along with special wallpapers, and certain UI elements themed in the Olympic colors (the home and lock screens, the message, dial, and contact screens, and the notification area). As you’d expect, on the inside this is unchanged from the non-Olympic Galaxy S7 edge that launched a few months ago, boasting the exact same specs.
Each athlete competing in the Rio 2016 Olympics will receive a Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition, as well as a pair of Gear IconX wireless earbuds. For mere mortals, a limited run of 2,016 S7 edge Olympic Games Edition smartphones will be available to purchase starting on July 18 in select countries including the US, Brazil, China, Germany, and Korea. Pricing hasn’t been announced unfortunately, but you shouldn’t expect this to be cheap.
