Hey disgruntled Note 7 users who haven’t completely moved on after breaking up with Samsung! If you haven’t picked up an LG V20 yet, Samsung just announced a new Galaxy S7 Edge, in stunning Black Pearl. So, brace yourselves.
Are you drooling yet? Because I know I am.
Here’s a bit from the announcement:
The new Black Pearl Galaxy S7 edge follows the Blue Coral and Pink Gold editions released earlier this year. While those were largely inspired by calming, natural hues, Black Pearl was designed to be modern and striking. The sleek black finish blankets the entire device – edges and all – and adds depth to its glass design. The result is a stylish all-black aesthetic that captures the essence of the color in its purest form.
Just in time for the holiday season, and coinciding with finally putting down the Note 7 for good, you can now pick up this very special colour. Break out the piggy bank though, because it is only available in the 128GB model.
I am seriously considering exchanging my Silver Titanium version for this mean looking phone, and naming it Death Trooper. However, I would not look forward to constantly wiping the phone down. You’d better believe this will be a fingerprint magnet. I would definitely have to cover it in a screen protector as soon as I unboxed it, front and back.
Meanwhile, Apple may soon offer a curved screen iPhone, and Nokia is set to return to the smartphone space. Samsung lost billions in sales with the Note 7 recall, and certainly do not want to let go of their market share. A new colour in a phone that was released at the beginning of the year might not blow the competition away, but it isn’t necessarily meant to.
Are you excited by this new colour scheme? Is this just a carryover until the Galaxy S8 comes out next year, or are you geeks done with Samsung after this recent fiasco? Let us know in the comments section below!
