It looks like Samsung has more in store for Singapore. After news broke out about Singapore receiving Samsung Pay first in Southeast Asia, the country is now among the first to officially offer pink-gold variants of the Galaxy S7 4G+ and S7 edge 4G+.
We can’t say we didn’t see this coming: Samsung’s answer to Apple’s now-ubiquitous rose-gold iPhone was revealed a little less than a month ago, and the region-specific releases are just around the corner. It’s certainly a welcome addition, since the original set of colors didn’t exactly present a lot of variety.
The alternative color option doesn’t introduce any new specs or features, but you still get the solid water resistance, class-leading camera, and high-speed fingerprint scanner, among others. You can find a much more detailed rundown of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in our hands-on review.
You’ll be able to purchase the Galaxy S7 4G+ in pink gold beginning May 14 for S$998, while the pink-gold version of the Galaxy S7 edge 4G+ will be available starting May 28 with a retail price of S$1,098. Both models come with 32GB of internal storage and will be found in several authorized retailers around the country.
The good news doesn’t end there for Singapore: Local Samsung fans also have the Gear 360 to look forward to this month.
The Gear 360 is a major step forward in Samsung’s quest of bringing virtual reality to the mainstream. Having two 180-degree fisheye lenses at 15 megapixels each, the camera is capable of shooting full 360-degree photos and videos, making it a perfect complement to the Gear VR headset.
The primary strength of the Gear 360 lies in its connectivity options. You can use one of the aforementioned Samsung flagship handsets as a viewfinder for the camera, and effortlessly upload to popular online platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook, through the proprietary Gear 360 app. We covered more of its features back in February.
Samsung Singapore says the Gear 360 will be available beginning May 21 for S$498 from the online stores of key telecommunication operators and IT/consumer electronics retailers, as well as Lazada Singapore.
