We exclusively reported three months ago that Samsung was working on the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition, it’s a limited edition variant of the Galaxy S7 that Samsung is creating to commemorate the upcoming Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. A press render of this handset was leaked online just last week and now it appears that we’re only a few days away from the official announcement.
A teaser has been posted on the official Samsung Mobile Deutschland Facebook page which tells us to “Ge7 Ready” for a new unpacking and directs us to an offer for the Olympics on Samsung’s website. All of this suggests that the company is gearing up to launch the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition on July 7. It’s unclear in which markets this limited edition handset will be released and how much it will cost. Samsung is a major sponsor of the Olympics so its customers get the exclusive privilege of watching the Rio 2016 Olympics in virtual reality. The 2016 Summer Olympics are taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with the opening ceremony taking place on August 5.
