Samsung Galaxy S7 Glossy Black model will launch in December 2016.
After the Note7 was discontinued in October due to exploding battery issues, it left Samsung with quite a gap in its lineup. The company’s last flagship before the Note7, the Galaxy S7, is eight months old, and four more months will likely pass before its successor, the Galaxy S8, is launched.
APPLE LAUNCHED A SNAZZY NEW IPHONE
In the meantime, Apple launched a snazzy new iPhone, its Jet Black color so coveted that it was immediately sold out for some models (and is still unavailable in some markets).
According to a report by The Korea Herald (caught by MacRumors), Samsung will do the the logical thing and launch a glossy black version of the S7 in early December.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are already available in a number of colors including Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Gold Platinum. The Edge was also recently launched in Blue Coral — the color originally debuted on the Note7.
ITS NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR HOW A GLOSSY BLACK COLOR
It’s not entirely clear how a glossy black color would be different from the already quite glossy Black Onyx, but we guess you can always go glossier.
While it’s obvious that Samsung is hurting from the discontinuation of Note7, it’s not uncommon for the company to follow in Apple’s footsteps when it comes to color. The S7 and S7 Edge already got an additional Pink Gold color after the world went crazy for Apple’s Rose GoldiPhone in 2016.
