Samsung announced the Galaxy S7 Edge way back in February so the device is almost nine months old. It rarely happens that after such a long time a manufacturer decides to refresh a lineup but that’s exactly what Samsung is doing. The company is bringing to the market a brand new color option in addition to the three hues that have been on sale for months, that is Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Gold Platinum. The new version is Blue Coral and it just hit AT&T store. Pre-sale have already begun with shipping scheduled in two weeks.
A new color of the Galaxy S7 Edge is now available for pre-order from AT&T for $26.50 per month.
Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge surfaced a few times in rumors but details regarding its launch date in the US as well as networks that would carry it were scarce to say the least. It turns out that the day is today – AT&T just opened pre-orders and says the phone will start shipping between November 18 and 22. Good news is that the new color option costs exactly the same as the existing ones that is $26.50 per month over 30 months or $794.99 if you opt to pay full price at checkout.
Blue seems to be a really hot color for smartphones these days, pretty much like gold used to be a few years ago. Google even made a Really Blue Pixel phone which apparently is more blue than other blue devices. Samsung, however, went in a different direction. The company opted for a more subtle shade which combined with rose gold band that wraps around the edges looks very elegant and stylish.
Other than a new color, though, it’s still the same Galaxy S7 Edge you know and love. It means that you can expect a curved 5.5-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM as well as no less than 32GB of expandable memory. Other key features include IP68 dust/water resistance, 12-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,600 mAh battery and more.
If you pre-order the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge now, it will arrive in about two weeks, that is right before Thanksgiving weekend. The device is also expected to go on sale in other parts of the world, however, at the moment it’s unclear when exactly is might happen.
