Jet Black Samsung Galaxy S7 may be coming to soothe your Note7 blues


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. 

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.

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 Gold iPhone in 2016.
