Just a few months ago, the tech giant, Samsung came out with the latest iteration of their Galaxy S Smartphone Series, the Samsung Galaxy S7. The phone was critically acclaimed due to the plethora of features that it offered and was one of the first all-metal phone to get a water resistant (read: splash resistant) certification. The phone came out in two variants; one was the edge variant which featured a curved display that extended to the borders of the screen whereas the other was a plain version. The Galaxy S7 ran on Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon 820 chipset and crushed all benchmark tests. Owing to the massive success earned from the Galaxy S7, Samsung had decided to work on a limited edition of the phone dubbed as Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Edition. The limited edition would only come in the edge variant and for all those heavily anticipating the look of the limited edition version, wait no more, for the pictures of the device have leaked prior to the official debut of the phone. In the picture, the device can be seen sporting an Olympic logo on its back coupled with colorful accents around the shooter, LED flash, fingerprint scanner and the earpiece.
Rumors for the limited edition Samsung device began about three weeks ago; however no hints were dropped as to what the actual device might look like. But thanks to the recent press renders released by one of the most reliable rumor-mill in the tech industry, Evan Blass, we now have a fair idea as to what the phone would look like.
Most of the device it seems is made up of black glass which enables the colored accents to stand out more. The earpiece grill received a shade of yellow while the fingerprint scanner got a yellow ring around it. The back of the phone, however, got blue rings around the camera module and the LED flash. The power button got a coat of red while the volume rocker (up and down keys) was bestowed with a vibrant shade of green.
The internal specifications of the device are expected to be the same. However, according to SamMobile, the phone might receive exclusive applications and content for the Rio 2016 event.
No date has been reported to be scheduled pertaining to the official release of the device, however, if rumors are to be believed then the device might get a spot alongside the Galaxy Note 7 unveil.
