Samsung's answer to the Jet Black iPhone 7 is here.

Update: Samsung has officially announced the Pearl Black variant of the Galaxy S7 edge. The phone will be available with 128GB storage, and will debut in "select markets" on December 9.

Samsung is looking to introduce new color options to boost sales of the Galaxy S7 edge for the holiday season. We've already seen the Blue Coral variant break cover last month, and Samsung is now getting ready to launch the Pearl Black color option in South Korea on December 9. Notably, the new color variant is expected to come with 128GB of storage.

The information comes by way of SamMobile, which posted live photos of the device last month. From the images, the Pearl Black color option looks like a glossier version of the Note 7's Black Onyx variant.

Samsung is expected to officially launch the Pearl Black color option shortly, and as of now there's no information to suggest it will make its way to global markets. We'll let you know if we hear otherwise. What do you guys make of the new color variant?
