Samsung is quite fond of releasing special edition variants of its flagship devices. So far, the South Korean tech giant has introduced an Iron Man edition of its Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone in May of last year, and a Batman inspired variant of its Galaxy S7 Edge handset called the Injustice Edition in honor of the third anniversary of the massively popular game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, about a couple of months ago. Last month, it was reported that the world’s biggest seller of smartphones was planning to debut a 2016 Olympics edition of its Galaxy S7 Edge. Well, a release date has been disclosed, and it is July 18th of this year.
On that date, the Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition will be made available in mobile markets that include the United States, China, South Korea, Brazil, and Germany. The device is called a Limited Edition because Samsung will only roll out 2,016 units of the device (that’s pretty clever, Samsung). In the US, the Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition smartphone will only be made available at Best Buy.
This special edition of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge is as Olympic as it can get. It comes replete with the official colors of the Olympic games, and of course, that all too familiar logo showing five interlocking rings. While Samsung will be selling 2,016 units to consumers starting July 18th, the South Korean phone maker has an arrangement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to have 12,500 of the special edition devices provided to Olympians while they are competing in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Moreover, the device comes with Samsung’s new Rio 2016 mobile app, which features a directory that provides information on game schedules, venue locations, latest game results, medal tallies, and even real time updates of ongoing events.
Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition is also bundled with Gear IconX wireless earbuds, which will not only bring music to the ears of Olympians, but also track heart rate and transmit collected statistics to the S Health mobile when it is paired with the Galaxy S7 Edge. Additionally, there is also a mobile app that allows Olympians to contact the IOC directly in order to get all pertinent information regarding their involvement in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
