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?
