Korean smartphone major Samsung is planning to launch the new ‘Black Pearl’ variant of its 2016 flagship Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in India in January.
Earlier in December, Samsung added ‘Black Pearl’, a seventh colour variant, to its Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone, exclusively available in the 128GB variant.
According to a report by Korean Herald, Samsung has introduced the new colour variant to the nine-month-old Galaxy S7 to compete with the Apple latest iPhone releases, Jet Black and Matte Black iPhone 7 models.
The reports had claimed that the new Galaxy S7 variant would serve as an asset to Samsung to overcome the sale loss it experienced following the discontinuation of Note 7.
“Black Pearl was designed to be modern and striking. The sleek black finish blankets the entire device – edges and all – and adds depth to its glass design. The result is a stylish all-black aesthetic that captures the essence of the color in its purest form,” Samsung has said in an online post.
