A couple of days ago we told you about the possibility of a “Glossy Black” Galaxy S7 Edge in the works. Just 48 hours later and the first images of that upcoming device have now appeared on Chinese microblogging site, Weibo. The photos show a very shiny, very sexy S7 Edge that’s quite similar to the Olympics Games edition, but without the accents.
The baby blue version of the Galaxy S7 Edge is now available across all U.S. carriers, but the new shiny black version is expected to arrive in December sometime. We would expect it to arrive as early as possible though, to give it the best chance of being snapped up in time for the holiday buying frenzy.
The images come from the Weibo account of a China-based Samsung official who obviously doesn’t care too much about leaking these images. They show the glossy black device from several angles, including its black metal chassis, with a regular Galaxy S7 Edge appearing in the background of one photo for comparison.
Would you drop a few dollars on a glossy black S7 Edge? Do you think it’ll be as scratch-prone as the Jet Black iPhone 7?
