"Samsung has long been a sponsor for the Olympic Games and it previously launched special editions of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 3 in 2012 and 2014, respectively, to show its support," Tech Times reported.
This special edition aims to celebrate the upcoming Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, sporting a sleek thematic design, but otherwise the same specs and features as the regular Galaxy S7 edge, which was released earlier this year. Except for different aesthetic designs, the phone is expected to be the same product as the Galaxy S7 edge.
