A while ago a bunch of images showcasing a new version of the Galaxy S7 in glossy black leaked online. Now Samsung has officially announced the Black Pearl version of the flagship phone.


The glossy new color model will be sold with 128GB of internal storage and will become available in select markets starting December 9. Samsung hasn’t specified exactly in which countries the Black Pearl model will be sold yet.


Naturally the phone will go on sale in Samsung’s home country, South Korea but given that the Coral Blue Galaxy S7 is available in the US, we believe the Black Pearl will be offered too.

The Android device will prove great alternative to the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which made a debut on the market not so long ago.


If the Black Pearl is not for you, you can still pick up the Galaxy S7 edge in White Pearl, Black Onyx, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Coral Blue.

Samsung is striving to create some hype around its current premium devices, to make users forget about the Galaxy Note7. On top of that, the Korean tech giant is working hard on its next-gen Galaxy S8 which is expected to solve its recent woes.


The phone should make it out with a 2K display, Snapdragon 835, a selfie camera with focus, virtual assistant and Harman branded stereo speakers. The Galaxy S8 might also ship out devoid of a 3.5 headphone jack and home button.

  1. Ever since getting a Level U Pro Bluetooth headset with UHQ Audio I’ve thought I might not miss the headphone jack as they are the best wireless earbuds I’ve ever heard due increased bit rate over standard Bluetooth. Samsung needs to come out with the same feature in an audio Chrome cast style unit for streaming UHQ to speakers, car audio inputs, etc. I think I’d really miss the home button though as I use it to turn on my phone rather than the on-off switch.
