The Galaxy has never been just a smartphone. The Olympic Games has never been only about sports. In the same way, progress has never been reasonable. It’s been defined by saying “no.” By the stubborn ones. By people like you who
#DoWhatYouCant.

Olympic
Games Edition

The Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Edition is an homage to those who make unreasonable progress. From the special black metal frame to the colors of the most frequently used apps, it wears the colors of the Olympic rings inside and out.
