We all know that Samsung released probably the most acclaimed smartphone of the year with the sleek and powerful Galaxy S7. And the brand have just made the surprising announcement that they will be releasing a limited-edition Edge Olympic version of the mobile to accompany the launch of the Rio 16 Olympics this summer.
Samsung’s smartphones have always been amongst the best devices for online gaming, but this high-profile move into the sporting domain is a great way for the brand to improve upon its phenomenal sales figures and gain some important headlines ahead of the expected launch of the Apple iPhone 7 in September.
All of the 12,500 Olympians will be receiving a complementary Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Edition mobile. This eye-catching device incorporates the official logo on the slimline exterior and on the homescreen wallpaper, and the device will also be preloaded with some interesting apps that make it easy to stay in touch with friends and family and gain access to some home comforts ranging from movie streaming to online pokies games.
Sports fans will also be able to pick up one of these smartphones as 2,016 of the devices will be available for pre-order from 18 July. This will be a great way for Olympics enthusiasts to keep up with the track and field events as the mobile comes preloaded with the official Olympic app that offers real-time updates to the sporting events between 5 and 21 August.
And even when the Olympic event has finished, the Edge Olympic Edition should prove more than capable of offering some serious entertainment as the device has already been noted as being the ultimate gaming device. Not only does it boast a deluxe 5.1 inch screen and an improved battery life, but it’s unique water-cooling features means that gamers can easily work their way through all of the online pokies games from this collection at Lucky Nugget Casino without overheating.
The device can also be used to enhance an individual’s fitness aspirations as the Gear IconX cord-free earbuds offer a way to wirelessly track your health performance via the in-ear heart rate monitor and the acclaimed S Health App.
And with a further series of impressive technological breakthroughs such as a 4D virtual reality kayak ride that will be on show at the Samsung Galaxy Studios in Brazil, it shows that it’s not just the instant access to the online pokies games that are making the brand one of the biggest names in the evermore competitive smartphone market.
