It was recently revealed that the South Korean versions of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will come without the Samsung logo on the front, and it looks like the same will be the case in China as well. It’s a move that we can readily get behind, especially if you pick up the black color option for either device – there’s a definite charm to seeing the deep AMOLED blacks gel with the black color of the device itself without any logo ruining the show.
Don’t believe us? Well, check out images of the black Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge from Chinese certification authority TENAA and see for yourself. So the displays aren’t on in these images, but you can see how attractive both devices look without a logo marring the design. Put a dark image on the screen when you’re using the phone and you can imagine how attractive everything would be. The Samsung logo retains its place on the back of the devices, but then that should be the least bit surprising for anyone.
Unfortunately, not a lot of companies are confident enough to not put their logo on the front on their smartphones (Google and Motorola devices are perhaps the only major ones we can think of that don’t have the manufacturer logo on the front). Samsung has done this in Japan with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, and this time the company will be extending the courtesy to China and its home market. We still don’t know why, but hey, it’s not something we will be complaining about.
