With the plug pulled on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 over a month ago, Samsung is now trying to sell the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to consumers by offering both devices in new color options. Just a few weeks back, the South Korean company released a Blue Coral variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge, a color which was first featured on the Galaxy Note 7.
