Four phone generations ago, uh, I mean four years ago Samsung celebrated the summer Olympic games with a limited edition Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note, then two years later the winter games with a limited edition Note 3, and now the Brazil games are getting a limited edition Galaxy, too.
The phone will likely have the same specs, but should bring some Olympic-themed goodies. The limited edition paint job features color accents matching the Olympic rings – yellow on the front, green and red on the side, and blue on the back. There should also be Olympic apps to keep you up to date with the latest developments from the games.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition hasn’t been officially unveiled yet, but it’s only a matter of time. I’m guessing Samsung is waiting for the media coverage of the games to heat up first.
The 2016 Summer Olympics start on August 5 in Rio de Janeiro, so expect the unveiling around that time (perhaps a bit sooner so that the phone is on sale when the Olympic cauldron is lit).
The price of the phone is unknown for the moment, but the Injustice Edition was pricey.
