Pretty in pink… gold: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge get fifth color option in Korea

How could Samsung possibly make its “next big thing” appeal to even more little portions of the worldwide smartphone-devouring masses? Already, the Galaxy S7 duo caters to power users and heavy multitaskers with today’s best possible processors and 4GB RAM, digital hoarders with up to 64GB internal storage and microSD support, as well as outdoorsy types with water and dust resistance.

Shutterbugs are of course also taken care of, early VR adopters can pair the handhelds with Gear VR headsets on the cheap, and if you insist on using your phone all day without interruption, the 3,000 and 3,600 mAh batteries should hit the spot.

But then you have fashionistas and people who love nothing more than to stand out from the pack by any means possible. And these folks will not be persuaded to buy the “boring” Black Onyx, White Pearl or Silver Titanium versions of the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. Maybe the Gold Platinum.

Or, even more likely, the just-announced Pink Gold edition. Before you start, Apple doesn’t have a trademark on a color. And yes, the “pink gold” shade resembles Cupertino’s “rose gold” tinge a little bit, but Samsung’s “refined, skin tone-inspired color scheme” strikes us as slightly more subdued and tasteful. Well, as tasteful as pink can be.

As you can imagine, only “select markets” will get the snazzy new Galaxy S7 models, starting with Korea today, and presumably followed by China soon. The pink S6 Edge+ was itself exclusive to Asian territories last year, so we wouldn’t get our hopes up stateside. After all, certain US carriers don’t even sell the silver flavor, and the white one hasn’t been picked up by a single major operator yet.
