We can now show you actual pictures of the Galaxy S7 Edge Blue Coral variant and it isn't even a leak. Samsung has officially released pictures of the upcoming new color variant and it looks quite beautiful. They have obviously taken a cue from the Note 7's Blue Coral variant here, as the color was quite well received. If you like what you see, you will be able to buy one starting November.

The S7 Edge Blue Coral is priced at NT$24,900 in Taiwan, which is approximately $790; the same price as all the other color variants. The handset will see its release on November 5 in Singapore and should make its way to the rest of the world soon afterwards. Given that every other competitor will have a new phone in the market for the holiday season, only time will tell if just an additional color option will be enough to convince customers in favor of choosing Samsung over newer hardware from other manufacturers. The LG V20, the Moto Z and the Google Pixel XL are thought to be its greatest competitors, but there are other less popular brands out there too, who will take a shot at stealing Samsung's market share due to the void that the Note 7's untimely death has created.

We knew that a Blue Coral version of the Galaxy S7 Edge was coming, but now it's almost here. The new color variant will be launched tomorrow in South Korea. While a new color is usually not something that receives too much attention, the Blue Coral is more than just a color. It is reminiscent of the Note 7 which met its untimely death as a result of faulty engineering. Samsung has used the same popular blue color that it had used with the Note 7 to make the new variants of the S7 Edge more appealing to their customers. As the holiday season approaches, it would be interesting to see if the new release manages to make up for at least some of the sales loss that Samsung is sure to suffer due to the absence of the Galaxy Note 7.

The smartphone on its own however, will not be different from all the other color variants in any way. It will come in 32GB and 64GB variants via SK Telecom, LG Uplus and KT in South Korea. The back cover of the S7 Edge will sport the Blue Coral color with Rose Gold rims. The front bezels too will be blue, just as the back. As it will even be priced in the same manner as the existing S7 Edges, will you be opting for one?

The Coral Blue was an instant hit with the Galaxy Note 7 last year until things went haywire for Samsung and the beloved but feared handset globally. Nevertheless, Samsung re-introduced the same color option with the S7 and S7 Edge later on and just as expected, people loved it in the US especially. Taking a cue from the color's success, it looks like Samsung is all set to introduce it again to the US with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Check out the leaked render above to get a taste of what to expect. No information regarding which carriers will be getting the Coral Blue variant was available unfortunately. If it turns out to be true, then the Coral Blue will be joining Arctic Silver, Orchid Gray and the Midnight Black color options in the US, expanding the total number of available colors to four. Samsung has not yet made any comments on the availability of such a device though, but then again, when do they ever! Seeing the S8/S8+ in Coral Blue doesn't seem to be a far farfetched rumor at all; instead it is most likely a logical and predictable step by the Korean OEM.

We got over the Galaxy S8 fever about two months ago when Samsung finally made everything official and after a period of lull, the Galaxy Note 8 rumors are slowly starting to build up. In fact, we had seen the first renders of the Note 8 much earlier this year than we did in case of the Note 7 last year. To add to this alleged least of leaks, we have another picture today that seems to be showing the Galaxy Note 8 in the attractive Blue Coral color.

Given that the famous Blue Coral color debuted with the infamous Galaxy Note 7 last year, it would in fact be quite natural if the upcoming Note was launched in its blue avatar right off the bat. The only gripe about the render which you see here is the fact that the fingerprint scanner is clearly not on its back and that doesn't make sense. Maybe the render was imagined with an under-the-glass fingerprint scanner before the news about the technology's unavailability was leaked.
