A mid-cycle color refresh for the phone taking over the Note 7's sales.
If you lusted after the bright blue-and-pink "blue coral" Note 7 back when it was on sale, you're in luck: the color is being reintroduced on the Galaxy S7 edge in the U.S. later this year. Blue coral was originally a Note 7-exclusive color, but will now sit alongside black, gold and silver as color options for the GS7 edge a "major wireless providers" in the States.
For those who wanted to stand out a bit the blue coral Note 7 was certainly enticing, with its amazingly flashy blue body being accented by a light pink metal trim that looked like no other phone on the market. The Galaxy S7 edge stands to be just as stunning in the color, even set next to the gold and silver options.
Though people with a Galaxy S7 edge aren't going to be swapping out their current phone for the new color, at the very least the blue color option will help it stand out a bit on store shelves for holiday phone buyers. Together with pricing incentives in the final quarter of the year, Samsung is hoping that the Galaxy S7 edge (in all colors) will pick up some of the sales slack created by the Note 7's recall.
The new color will go on sale starting November 1, with specific availability by region announced when it becomes available in each area.
