According to a new report, the South Korean tech giant is preparing to introduce one more color option for the Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship. The unveiling of the new Glossy Black version will be set for early December, 2016. Android enthusiasts are looking forward to the Samsung’s response as they believe this will prove a more-than-worthy match for the Apple’s Jet Black iPhone 7.
Up until August, when Samsung released the faulty Galaxy Note 7, the Korean giant enjoyed a year filled with successful launches and stellar reviews. However, even after the almost-fatal blow Samsung suffered earlier this year, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge remains the best-selling pair of Android smartphones of 2016.
After the strings of misfortunes, Samsung stopped the production of the Galaxy Note 7 and subsequently turned all of its attention to the flagship smartphones, namely the Galaxy S7 and its more “edgy” counterpart. Thanks to the company’s success, some of the largest U.S. carriers have recently launched a brand new Blue Coral color option for the handset. Up until the unfortunate incident, these were exclusive to the defective Note 7.
Glossy Black Galaxies Counter Apple’s Roses
The fact that the South Korean tech giant launches a new color option for its flagship smartphones comes as a direct response to Apple’s Rose Gold editions of iPhone 6 and consequently iPhone 6 Plus. Apart from the new glossy black finish, the Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S7 edge also come in pink gold, exclusively sold through Best Buy across America.
As far as availability of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 glossy black is concerned, there are some voices that say the smartphone featuring this particular finish will be available only in South Korea. As of now, it is still uncertain if some other countries will get to enjoy the latest release.
It seems as if Samsung takes a swing at Apple by trying to make up for its crippling setbacks through gaining public’s attention. Whatever the case may be, the South Korean tech giant will also update some of the smartphone’s specifications. Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will keep the headphone jack after the updates, as opposed to their competitor.
Sources say that the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge will run on an octa-core chipset and benefit from 4Gb of physical (RAM) memory. As far as internal storage is concerned, there will be two options either 32Gb or 64Gb of built-in storage capacity.
