When Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 7, it also introduced the new Blue Coral color option for the device. Now that the Note 7 has been discontinued, the Blue Coral color option will now be making its way to the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Samsung announced last week that the Blue Coral option will be available to the Galaxy S7 Edge in some countries internationally, including Taiwan and Singapore. Now, the South Korean phone maker has confirmed that the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge will also be available in the United States.
There’s no word yet on when the Blue Coral S7 Edge will arrive in the U.S., but it will come out sometime later this year. It is believed that it will be available from major mobile network carriers, as confirmed by TechCrunch. It’s also possible that it will be available unlocked, but there’s no confirmation on that just yet.
Although the Galaxy S7 Edge will be available in a new color, everything else on the device will stay the same. The handset will still come with the Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The Blue Coral S7 Edge will still be equipped with the 12-megapixel camera on the back and the SuperAMOLED quad HD 5.5-inch display up front. Lastly, the handset will still be IP68 water and dust resistant, so consumers shouldn’t worry about any major changes with the new color variant.
As for pricing, there’s no indication of its price being any different from the current models that are available on the market. Thus, consumers should expect the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge to start at around $700 (unlocked). Price should vary depending on where it’s being sold.
The Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge is now available in some countries around the world. Consumers in the U.S. should expect it to be available “by the end of the year,” according to 9To5Google.
