Here are all four Galaxy S7 and S7 edge colors

Even if you've decided to pick up a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, it's always going to have to be followed by a choice on colors. After you buy the phone there's no going back to get a new color, and while a case can add a bit of flair later on you can't get around your initial decision.

Let's take a look at all four glorious colors of these phones together, then quickly break down the characteristics and availability of each.

Galaxy S7 edge colors


Black is easily the sleekest color of the bunch. Not only is it dramatically less reflective than the other colors, Samsung has also dropped some of the shiny trim around the home button and camera pod to accompany it. If you were a fan of the deep blue of last year's Galaxy phones, you'll love this one. You can get both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in black.


Gold is just the new thing to do — you can find it as a color option from most manufacturers nowadays. But nobody's gold stands out like Samsung's gold. It's even flashier and more reflective than previous gold phones from Samsung, and if that speaks to you then go for it — just don't say we didn't warn you. You can get both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in the gold color.


The silver color is a bit more reflective than last year's, but still isn't quite as ostentatious as the gold variant. That being said, in the right light the gold and silver can almost look identical. It's flashy, it's bright and it almost acts like a mirror when it's cleaned up. Silver is exclusively available for the Galaxy S7 edge.


Ah yes, it's fitting that the white version of the phone is a bit of a unicorn. When the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge launch in the U.S., white won't be a color option. We know that it will only be available internationally (at launch, anyway — who knows if that could change), but even then we don't know details on just which countries and which of the two models will offer the color. But if it is available where you're looking to buy, you'll find it to be nearly identical to the white of last year.

  • People have been saying the love the silver until they see it in person and then go back to Black. What is your thoughts on this?
  • I can't say what color people will like — I only know what I like. I just know the silver is really flashy and reflective, and often looks very similar to the gold when seen in person.
  • I like the look of the silver online; but talked myself out of it. I really wanted the white; but since it's not available in USA, I settled on black. I don't have a car with Android Auto, so frequently mount my phone to the windshield for navigation. I was concerned about the silver reflecting headlights at night, so went with the black. My car's mirror tints to keep the headlights from glaring into my eyes - I was concerned about the top/bottom bezel on the silver reflecting too much - at the very least being distracting or annoying.
  • That's a good point about mounting highly reflective devices against a windshield. Whether it does actually cause problems is not a given, as you say .
  • excellent point ... I never works of thought of that
  • Which did you like the best and second best?
  • black > white > silver > gold
  • The black this year has no blue tone in it at all...interesting.
  • And for that I am grateful. Hated the: Hey it's black! SIKE!! The tip is not included! So tip your Uber driver.
  • Because it's black. Last year was blue. Not sure why there'd be an expectation that the black model would have blue in it :)
  • last year was black sapphire. and years before samsung has never mad a BLACK flagship except the s5 and note 3. the others were always blue or gray.
  • Hi Andrew, its is interesting as to why manufacturers have different color options for different market. Why they don't just give us all color options everywhere :)
    Just fyi, you wrote that silver is only for s7 edge, but here in Indonesia we have Black, Gold, and Silver for both S7 and S7 Edge, you could check it out on samsung indonesia preorder page.
  • You can get black and gold with the s7 edge but silver is only for the edge not the regular.
  • i love black so im problaby going to get black
  • pink gold > silver > gold > blue > black
  • Those colors all look perfectly nice, but it seems like kind of a bland selection as a whole. I really hope they eventually release something like those gorgeous but under-released blue and green models from last year.
  • For me, the 'pearl white' - like galaxy S6, is most elegant. I'm waiting for S7 to come out in this color!
  • Exactly what happened to me. Saw it at BB and said, "No way."
  • Seen the silver at Best Buy in person and still sticking with it. But at the same time I didn't think that I would have liked the gold color like I did. The black is better than last years but it's nothing I haven't tried before. So silver and gold tied for first with black second.
  • I went with the black edge model I liked the silver in the pictures but when I saw it at best buy it was like looking in a mirror way to reflective for my tastes. Posted via the Android Central App
  • About the missing IR blaster in the Note 5 and S7, I have a solution for that. It's a Kickstarter campaign soon to be launch. Galaxy S7 is supported, and then you will have the IR blaster on S7. That way you will enjoy the wonderful S7 and still have IR in your smartphone. Please check it out here:
  • Wait! What? There's no IR blaster?? I use that daily for everything from my AC to whatever I can control around the house, to turning the channels in waiting rooms at businesses. It's literally the only remote I use on my S6Active. The widget is fantastic and it's so ez to switch TVs/devices/ rooms on the fly. I hope that I'm reading this wrong and you're saying that the IR hardware is there it's just not activated. Cuz I don't want to go back to Wi-Fi remotes- those suck :-/ The tip is not included! So tip your Uber driver.
  • 90% sure I'm getting the black, gonna have to swing by Best Buy to see them in person
  • Can the CE sticker be removed? If not, then black is the way to go if you want to hide that hideous thing! It's worse than carrier branding!
  • that's not a sticker
  • Then on some angles you can't see it? When they're all together you can see it on all but the black, but on the single phone pictures you can only see it on the white... Weird. Making me think twice about getting the Silver one haha
  • The reflectivity of the gold and silver especially make it tough to see the CE labeling.
  • Last year, the only model to have that branding was the Verizon model (at least in the U.S). The same probably applies for the S7 as well
  • These models used for pictures were not Verizon models.
  • Without the beautiful Emerald Green of last year, the black one is the only one I'll consider.
  • If only the Emerald had been available here... or that Sapphire. Come to think of it, can we get ANY color besides gold? Gold just feels tacky on most phones.
  • Where's the Green?! Should be a commercial........
  • This would have looked amazing in Iron Man Red... Just sayin'
  • The emerald stole my heart last year, but in it's absence, I like the look of the silver in photos.
  • My oh my the colors are just titillating my senses, glorious! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I saw the black onyx at best buy today. It just looks incredible. Stealth black phones look amazing. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like that gold! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I saw both in person and love the titanium silver. It's a fingerprint magnet but so beautiful. I pre-ordered and I'm leaving my 6p for it. I know that won't be popular with some folks but I'm missing too many quality shots of my daughter with the 6p. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm also leaving my 6p for the s7 edge, in black. I need split screen multitasking and want an always on display instead of ambient. I also have a Nexus 5x that I'll be keeping so when Android N is released I'll still get it first!
  • Pretty unremarkable as far as I'm concerned. Would have loved to have seen a metallic blue or red.
  • Yes to metallic blue!!! But sadly too good to happen!!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm in agreement with you on that. I had a beautiful metallic red LG, several years ago and I loved the color. Metallic blue would also be amazing. I am definitely a fan of this new S7 Edge. I've had just about every Samsung flagship phone that comes around. I really love this one! I saw it in the Silver color and pre-ordered that one on the spot.
  • So glad Samsung went back to a true black. That said, the silver one really caught my eye.
  • I like white phones. White not available in the USA. F you samsung. Guess I'll stick to my s6 active in camo white Posted via the S6 Active
  • you're seriously not getting it just cause it's not in white?
  • Well and not wanting to drop $800 on a phone when I just recently dropped $360 on my current phone. Will wait for sales, bogo promos, $300 trade in credits, etc. And also waiting to see HTCs offerings. And even then I'm still undecided between the s7, g5, hopefully m10, possibly xperia but probably not, and there's still a chance I could jump chip to an iphone. Posted via the S6 Active
  • Can't say that I blame you. Dropping money on phones is an expensive habit, it pays to wait sometimes. Also trying out an iphone too.
  • Yep, wait for the m10. It'll be worth it Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why not. You wouldn't get a phone if it's not samsung Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yes I would. dating back to 2013 my phones were a G2, G3, and a 2015 Moto X
    I only have the S6 active because I got it at a good price and the AT&T didn't support numbersync on the moto x.
  • I ordered the Platinum Gold S7, can someone tell me what the Gold S6 or Gold Note is like during 12 noon sunlight? Is it blaringly reflective? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Gold on S7 is better looking than the one on s6. Just saw both in person. Samsung rep mentioned it as well.
  • Really? What is different about the Gold on the S7 compared to the Gold S6? Posted via the Android Central App
  • More of a metal gold yet still subtle. It looks less bright like jewlry and more like gold aluminum I guess. Hard to explain, you have to just see it in person. It looks nice though.
  • I think he has a point I noticed it to the new Gold has a slight rose gold in it compared to my gs6 edge plus I spent a hour playing with them all Posted via the Android Central App
  • Man it sucks that Samsung is limiting this year's options so severely. Limited to only 32gb internal storage AND no white? Geez, come on now. The white s6 Edge is just so beautiful, should be an option again this year. Posted via the Android Central App from my pearly white Galaxy S6, black Note 3 or Nexus 7
  • I so much agree dude!!!!! I would have been a ton, ton happier with my purchase if if had 64GB's internal + microsd. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agreed. It really makes me mad that we don't get a 64gb option Posted via the Android Central App
  • Patience has its rewards. The HTC One M10 (Perfume) will have a 64 GB option.
  • The 64GB version is coming via Kogan. See
  • agree. I want a White And 64GB. don't want to mess with a stupid SD card.
    No white, No 64GB, No Sale. Gorgeous phone.
    Hopefully samsung offers white 64 on the Note 6.
    if not. I will just stay iPhone until something worth buying comes out.
  • Just saw all colors in person besides white. Silver is very very cool. Black is boring,I thought it would a brushed black or something different but it's just regular old straight black. I noticed the most finger prints on the black fwiw. It's like buying a black car, you see everything. The gold was surprisingly cool too. They aren't reflective like a mirror even under BB rediculous lighting. Silver isn't matte like a brushed aluminum though, yet not full blown chrome.
  • I probably would get the white version, just because I hate the looks of a "dirty" phone (regarding the fingerprints). And constatly feeling the urge to wipe your phone clean would be very annoying to me...^^
  • I took photos of several active display models, and when I got home I thought I had shot the back of a silver one, but they had none so gold looks really silvery especially with a light.
  • I will be getting the black S7 Edge. Can't wait!!!! Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • lol, you got an S6, hated TW, bought a 6p and talked about how much you love stock/updates ... 2 weeks later you're getting an S7. hysterical, we love our electronics don't we soldier!
  • I was just about to say the same thing. I thought for sure he was going to get the G5 since according to him it's better than the S7. Posted via the Android Central App
  • LoL first I love my Nexus 6 then I don't love my Nexus 6. Touchwiz bothers me then it doesn't bother me. One second I don't need expandable storage the next second I can't live without it. It's a rough life filled with first world problems. Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • You can see what I was up to here Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • Now sell that bland nexus and be done with it!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • But next month I might fall back in love with it LoL Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • Nah, you'll forget it ever happened Posted via the Android Central App
  • Shittty Asian software has a way of making android fans come back home to stock.
  • Except for Taiwan.
  • Still think i am going to import a white version of the S7...
  • +1 and don't forget 64-128 gbs internal storage! Posted via the Android Central App from my pearly white Galaxy S6, black Note 3 or Nexus 7
  • Not an option
    Not available
    Only 32GB internal Samsung is cutting down on SKUs The HTC One M10 (Perfume) will have a 64 GB internal option plus micro SD. [See above]
  • That sucks big time. Guess I'll wait for the S8 Edge in white with 64 or 128 gbs then. Posted via the Android Central App from my pearly white Galaxy S6, black Note 3 or Nexus 7
  • The 64GB version is coming soon via Kogan. See
  • Is it in best buy already, I went there yesterday but I didn't see any. I wanna see them. Before I chose the color
  • Only at some Best Buy stores.
  • Saw the silver in best buy it looks very nice. Posted with my NOTE 5 on damn verizon!
  • About the missing IR blaster in the Note 5 and S7, I have a solution for that. It's a Kickstarter campaign soon to be launch. We will support also the S7, and then you will have the IR blaster on S7. That way you will enjoy the wonderful S7 and still have IR in your smartphone. Please check it out here:
  • Wait, I'm confused. Under the "silver" category of pics in this article, the second pic seems to have a gold trim around the camera and flash. But in the other pics the back of the phone looks all silver. Can someone help me out with this? 64gig Gold Note5/AC App
  • Yeah that is definitely a gold phone. At certain angles it is hard to tell the difference, but the trim gives it away.
  • I played around with the silver S7 edge today and I love it. The color really doesn't matter since I'll be slapping an Otterbox Commuter case on it once I get it, but I liked the look of it.
  • All of my phones recently have been black and gold is a bit too much for me so I went with that beautiful silver
  • Got the gold note 5 and i love it Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Platinum Gold
    & Microsoft 950 XL
  • I wish there was a flat aluminum look like the M7. BTW, is the review coming soon?
  • We'll review it as soon as we can! We're excited to use it more, too.
  • I'm anticipating the review myself. I think it'll be favorable (wild guess) but I'm not buying anything till the m10 hits shelves. Then it'll be between the m10, g5 and s7 in that order. LCD > Amoled Posted via the Android Central App
  • But I do know rumor has it the m10 will have an Amoled display. The g5 might be the one for me with the removable battery, metal body, LCD panel, screen size and it has friends with benefits... Posted via the Android Central App
  • +1 Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • I have been an LCD fan because of the true (unsaturated non cartoony) colors of prior Galaxys until I saw the Amoled display on the HTC One A9. The technology has finally caught up and of course it's more power efficient. We'll have to hands on evaluate including reviews. Now I'm less inclined to go with LG simply because of display type especially with their functionality faults and build style.
  • Awesome! I've never been this excited about a phone in a long time. Posted via my LG G4
  • I'm in the UK and have ordered a white one from unfortunately I can't get the VR this way but at least I get the color I want. With looking into if you're not fussed about the free VR.
  • How about the beige option. Blend right into your khaki pants and polo shirt.
  • Looked at them at BB yesterday.
    The black is slick. Next to my Note 5 (really is dark blue not black) it stands out as different. Like Andrew stated, the accents are all black and the metal around the ph is darker than the Note. Similar color to the iPhone space gray model.
    Silver was a close second. I actually would have done silver if the black was similar to last yr. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The gold 7 edge is a looker dare I say it looks better then my gold 6 edge plus. Love what they did to round the corners of the phone almost like a polished rock . In the end I ordered the black regular 7 . All the new 7 fill so good naked Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like black because colors on the screen seem more vivid against a black bezel. Also when the screen is asleep the phone looks like a solid black slab.
  • Yep yep Posted via the Android Central App
  • Exactly Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • I totally agree. The black AMOLED display blends in with the rest of the phone so nicely. The always-on display should be interesting. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Of note when I messed with the black one today, it had a silver trim around it. Kind of broke it up like part was black plastic and part was metal trim. The gold and silver seem entirely metal and more cohesive.
  • Anybody else notice that the new 7 gold looks to have a hint of rose gold compared to my gs6 edge plus gold Posted via the Android Central App
  • No i haven't noticed that, at least in person.
  • That gold looks like an actual bar of gold. I want it but still afraid I may get robbed
  • Waiting for the white and if it doesn't make it into Canada, unlocked international version it is... Unless the M10 can suggest otherwise
  • My friend has a gold S6 Edge Plus, and it's gorgeous. But I still prefer black.
  • Silver is exclusive to S7 Edge? lol no!
    Silver galaxy s7 is available for preorder in my country (Indonesia).
    Only black, silver and gold are available for both S7 and S7 Edge, that sucks because i wanted to preorder the white S7.
  • Always bet on black. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think I like the gold because it's more cohesive than the black. The black has the gray on the sides (and top and bottom) while the gold does not. Now I just need to decide if I can handle downgrading in size to a 5.5" screen from the 5.96" on my Nexus 6. I suppose if I find that I can't handle a smaller screen, I can always sell the GS7 edge and pop the SIM back into my Nexus 6.
  • Why can't I edit my post? Grrrr! Anyway, I just checked out to see if someone had measurements of how much screen the on screen buttons take up on my Nexus 6. The answer is 0.366 inches, which means my usable screen space is only 5.594 inches, or only .094 inches more than the GS7 Edge. Well, now I think I am sold on getting the GS7 Edge, since the actual space difference will be negligible. I love gooooooold!
  • This ^. The trim seems out of place on the black
  • It is a pity that Samsung is a very loose company in terms of software and customer support, beautiful phone anyway
  • Disappointed with only 32 gig versions. With the size of apps and especially games getting bigger all the time, I'm having second thoughts about this phone. Posted via Android Central App
  • Definitely needs options of 64 and 128. ALL needs smartephones should offer a min of 64 now. I'm not understanding why they still do 32. Posted via the Android Central App from my pearly white Galaxy S6, black Note 3 or Nexus 7 O
  • I ordered the silver S7 edge. Thought it would look slick next to my gold S6 edge.
  • It sucks that you can't get the S7 in silver in the US. Gonna wait for Samsung's REAL flagship the Note6 anyway. They should just get rid of the S series and sell only Note phones in phablet (5.7") AND standard (5.1" or 5.2") size.
  • Notes have a different feature and are geared towards different users. Most S users don't care about the stylus, and it would take up too much space on a 5.1" phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think silver IS available in the US. ALL options should be available in the US as it's the best market for smartephones. Posted via the Android Central App from my pearly white Galaxy S6, black Note 3 or Nexus 7
  • Hi ho silver.....away! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hey Sujeet Singh1! What's your take? Leave a comment.i wait samsung galaxy 7
  • I was wondering will it be a Galaxy S7 Edge Plus or is the S7 Edge replacing the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus?
  • There will be no plus this year. Later in the fall Samsung will drop the note on us. All of the 7 b galaxy are stunning I ordered the regular black 7 . And anybody worrying about the ram issue don't. . I loaded up 20 apps and they all opened right where I left off Posted via the Android Central App
  • I believe they will drop a Note6 and a Note edge this fall. 64gig Gold Note5/AC App
  • I just pre ordered the Galaxy S7 Edge, I'm coming from an iPhone 6S plus so I'm gonna go all out this time and get the Gold!!! #GoBoldOrGoHome.... I'm from UK London
  • Bring Emerald Green to Sprint in the US. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No greens are blues this year that weren't that big selling the gold and blue black was the most asked for colors last year Posted via the Android Central App
  • I know that there is no green, was just my favorite from last year and wasn't available in us and even if I bought an unlocked one couldn't have used it on Sprint. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I really like the look of the silver back, but not the silver bezels in front. They're going to be really annoying when using the phone outdoors, I think. I'd love the silver back with black bezels, but since that option doesn't exist I'd probably choose a black phone.
  • So I was firmly in team silver and thought black looked very cheap in plasticky in pictures. I just got back from Best Buy and I have totally switched. The black looks great in person. Sleek, stealthy, and premium. The gold and silver both look gaudy.
  • I'm glad to hear the black variant I getting praise. I never pre-order phones, especially before reviews have come out, but my G2 is suffering some major lag and lock up, and I've had enough. I considered the G5, but I can't wait until April, so I pre-ordered the black S7. I can't get over the curved screen of the edge, so I'm really hoping the battery life is solid. That's the only concern I have.
  • That same batt is in both my note 5 and my gs6 edge plus and it get a full day that starts at 5 am till 9 pm Bluetooth to my gear s2 everyday . And WiFi on at work with 6.0 you'll be fine Posted via the Android Central App
  • I want free mobile...., Samsung edge 7 at given address.

  • Stopped by Best Buy to see them and noticed that the gold on the S7 and S7E is noticeably more gold than the gold platinum color on the Note 5 and S6. It still has the ability to look silver in certain lights, just less so than last year. The black looked cheap and plastic in pictures, but very premium in person. The metal edges on the black version are also a gunmetal color rather than the lighter brushed aluminum. I'd like to see the silver in person because I'm leaning toward ordering it, but want to make sure it isn't TOO bright. I don't want to worry about blinding myself when using it outside.
  • Im super excited about this phone. Since selling my Xperia Z2 I used a Moto G 2015 and then a OnePlus X. As decent as those 2 are, they just can't do what a flagship device can and I've especially missed having a good camera. Pictures on the G and X look decent at best in good light with a steady hand but low light pics are terrible and most action shots are a blurry mess. Forget about quickly getting the shot... If you're thinking of getting the S7 go see it in person first. I went to see them today and they are even never in person. As good as these pics are, in person the devices are fantastic. For now the UK is only getting black and gold, according to the Samsung salesman on hand, so no silver unfortunately. Having looked at both colours I decided to pre order the Edge in gold. It's definitely a darker gold than last years model, so be aware of that. The black didn't speak to me. It didn't seem like it was a a deep enough black, to me. Whereas the gold was shiny and deep the black is almost a kind of matte, and I didn't like it. But the frame is nice, kind of a gun metal. The frame on the gold is lighter and leans closer to silver. As far as size is concerned, the Edge is only a few mom wider, barely noticeable, and about a pinky width longer on top. So basically not huge. If you don't like massive phones, you'll like the Edge. Both felt very comfortable, and both have phenomenal displays. I pre ordered as soon as I got home. Can't wait!
  • I knew I wasn't crazy the new Gold is different then my Gs6 edge plus. I like it looks almost bronze in certain lighting. And it fills so smooth in the hand even better then the smaller gs7 . Posted via the Android Central App
  • I saw both at verizon today. like the silver, but it is such a fingerprint magnet and so reflective, and since if i was getting one it would be the regular s7 and verizon isn't carrying silver, black would be my choice. 
  • Stopped at best buy and checked out the S7 edge. In a nut shell, black looks to boring. You barely can tell it's a edge model until you turn on the display. Silver looks really nice but it's literally a mirror. The gold one looks the best and brings out the edge display the best even when the screen is sleep. About to pre order now. T-Mobile starts shipping out tomorrow. 64gig Gold Note5/AC App
  • Is it the same silver as on the Note 5?
  • I have the S6 in gold, love the variations, with the right light looks very gold, but sometimes looks kinda silver and I really like that, I ordered 2 Edge 7 in gold, looks like not so many people is going for that color :D
  • All my phones are dark or black and I wanted something different this time. The gold just seems too much, so decided to go with the silver option this time. I might hate it, but hopefully not!
  • I really wanted white but for whatever reason it isn't available in the UK, also just read it isn't available in the US either. Why don't they just make all colours available in all countries on all networks. In the UK its either black or gold, can't even get the edge in silver. Very disappointed and will be keeping my s6, then hopefully white will be available on the s8 next year.
  • I preordered the Black Onyx on Day 1 knowing this is the color I had to have. I went to Bestbuy this weekend and saw the silver and I knew I made a mistake. I proceeded to cancel the Black Onyx and now I'm waiting for my S7 Edge in silver.
  • UK only offering Black or gold
  • Boring. I want orange.
  • Samsung sold a green version which looks pretty nice to me. I also would like to see a light blue version.
  • going black because of that home button. no silver accents!!
  • Are any of these really colours? give me some real colours!
  • I'd love to see it in the same blue color that the S6 edge was available in.
  • I'm in the UK and I'm really disgruntled by the fact that you can only buy black or gold here. Neither colour I'm a fan of! It doesn't look as if silver is available anywhere in Europe but I'd like to at least be able to have white!
    The white variants available to import from Germany etc seem to be like gold dust! Very hard to get hold of or just ridiculously over priced! Really annoyed, Samsung!!
  • Big fan of the white.
  • I don't understand why the white isn't available in the US. FIrst the S6 doesn't have expandable memory leaving me stuck with my S5. Now the S7 isn't available in white, once again leaving me stuck with my S5. Screw you Samsung.
  • Hi
  • The white looks nice but the home button ring that is silver REALLY bothers me.
  • I have the pink gold and I love it.
