Quite evidently, the new Black Pearl version of the Galaxy S7 edge draws some inspiration from the Jet Black edition of Apple s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While the iPhone color variants received a lot of criticism for its scratch magnet body design, the Black Pearl would hopefully not have that issue with the Gorilla Glass protection on it rear panel. The Galaxy S7 edge Black Pearl variant comes with the same black 3D glass panels as on the Black Onyx variant. The addition here is the metal frame that goes around the sides of the smartphone also now comes in a black finish, making it completely black, similar to Olympics Edition of the smartphone that was announced not too long ago.
Earlier this week, Samsung also launched the Galaxy S7 edge in Gold Pink color, which is available in India through Samsung India e-stores. And as of now, the Galaxy S7 edge is available in five color variants of Gold Pink, Blue Coral, Black Onyx, Silver Platinum and Gold Platinum in India.
