s7 olympic editionSeveral months ago it was rumored that Samsung could be working on an Olympic Edition version of the Galaxy S7 Edge. Turns out the rumors were right, or at least close to being right as Evan Blass has recently tweeted out an image of the alleged handset, which you can see for yourself in the image above.

The handset’s design is more or less the same as the regular Galaxy S7 Edge. However it does appear to come in a jet black finish that as far as we can tell, has a matte finish to it. The home button and ear pieces have gold accents, and the back of the phone where the camera is has a blue accent which is accompanied by the blue Olympic rings at the bottom.

Unfortunately there is no word on when the Olympic Edition handset will be announced, but with the Rio 2016 Olympics coming up in the next couple of months, we reckon it probably won’t be too long before the handset is officially announced. Given that Samsung does seem to love their themed handsets, it wouldn’t be surprising if this handset is the real deal.

Apart from the new coat of paint, chances are we are probably looking at the same hardware specs under the hood, so don’t expect too much.
