Leading smartphone-maker Samsung on Thursday launched the new Black Pearl Galaxy S7 edge variant.
"The glossy new colorway, which radiates quality and luxury, will be exclusive to 128GB versions of the device and debut in select markets on December 9," Samsung said in a statement.
The new Galaxy S7 edge flaunts glossy black cover on the back and front. The edge's frame features matching dark metal, resulting in a stunning all-black body.
Under-the-hood, all the key specifications such as screen resolution, CPU, camera, RAM, internal storage and battery capacity remain the same as seen inside the original model.
For those unaware, the Galaxy S7 edge sports a QHD (2560x1440p) dual-edge curved display, Snapdragon 820/Exynos 8890 (depending on the region of sale), 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB inbuilt memory, a dual-pixel 12MP camera with f/1.7 aperture, Smart OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) and a 5MP snapper with F/1.7 aperture on the front.
With the launch of the new variant, the Galaxy S7 edge will now be available in seven colours -- Black Onyx, Gold Platinum, White Pearl, Silver Titanium, Pink Gold, recently launched Blue Coral and the new Black Pearl.
In a related development, Samsung launched the Blue Coral variant of the Galaxy S7 edge in India on November 8.
"The Galaxy S7 edge has witnessed a tremendous response from Indian consumers. The new colour variant is one of the trendiest must-have colours of the year and will compliment personal styles and offers a touch of sophistication. Coupled with a premium design and impeccable functionality, the new variant will surely add to the phenomenal success of the Galaxy S7 edge in India", Manu Sharma, vice president, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said in a statement.
The new Galaxy S7 edge flaunts an eye-catching deep blue cover on the back and front, and the edge's metallic frame features a premium gold finish, resulting in a stunning dual-toned colour combination.
Except the colour, the rest of the internal hardware and design language is the same as seen in the original model. It will be made available across Samsung's authorised offline and online shops as well as Samsung's e-commerce store – Samsung Shop -- in 32 GB storage for Rs. 50,900 December 15, 2016 onwards.
