48 hours after the rumours of the Glossy Black Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge came forth, pictures have surfaced, proving the rumour true. They were revealed on the Weibo Account of a Samsung official who definitely wasn’t shy, putting up these images. He even put one up where he’s stroking the glossy finish on the back. This new finish is most probably a last ditch effort to give the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge a proper send-off before the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that promises to dig the company out of the ditch that was the Galaxy Note 7.
Sporting a shiny black finish like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the S7 Edge looks beautiful. Whether it will also share the Jet Black iPhone 7’s incredible love for fingerprints and smudging remains to be seen. Along with the Glossy black, the baby blue version of the flagship is available on all US carriers now and just in time for the Black Friday frenzy. Colour schemes are becoming a big thing now that the feature train isn’t driving sales like it used to. A decline in sales has been seen across the board for the Samsung and iPhone flagships this year so beauty instead of features is topping the list of preferences among shoppers.
It’s the reason Google decided to release the Pixel and Pixel XL in 3 “hipster” colours. I mean seriously? Quite Black, Very Silver and Really Blue? Sure, the names sound silly but they’re still cute and flashy and something to show off to your friends.
