Samsung is no stranger to coming up with unique colors for its smartphones - the S III came in Pebble Blue, the S6 edge debuted with Emerald Green, the Note5 and S6 edge+ launched with Silver Titanium, and the Note7 (RIP) brought us Coral Blue. Samsung has been steadily adding striking colors like Coral Blue and Pink Gold to the S7 edge, and the latest of these is Black Pearl. It's... black. Very black.

[Deal Alert] eBay has the Galaxy S7 Duos for $470, Galaxy S7 Edge Duos for $520 (gold only)

Something about the international Duos (dual-SIM) models of Samsung's Galaxy phones makes them ripe for discounts, especially on eBay.

The S7 Duos is just $469.99 while the S7 Edge Duos is $519.99.

The Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is now available at the big 4 US carriers

Samsung launched the Note7 a few months ago with a lovely blue color option. Sadly, that phone was cancelled due to the defective battery issues. That left everyone with no way to get that nice blue phone, until now. The previously announced Blue Coral GS7 Edge is now live on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. It didn't take as long as we expected.

Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are the first devices compatible with T-Mobile's new 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM technologies for faster data speeds

Back in September, T-Mobile announced several improvements to its network's infrastructure that would help speed up data transfers significantly. There were two folds to the strategy, 4x4 MIMO and DL-256QAM/UL-64QAM, as well as two devices promised to be compatible with these options first: the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

First, 4x4 MIMO is already available in 319 cities and has the potential to double the data paths between the cell network and phones for better speeds in congested areas. It turns out that 4x4 MIMO was already enabled in the update that rolled out to the T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge back in September, but it wasn't mentioned in the official changelog.

Samsung publishes [non-functional] Nougat beta enrollment app in Galaxy Apps store

It was not too long ago that Samsung gave U.K. owners of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge the ability to enroll their devices in the Marshmallow beta program. This marked a step outside of Samsung's norm, which was internal testing of major software updates. So here we are in the latter part of 2016 and Samsung seems to be following its new methodology... At least, it looked that way briefly.

Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge is coming to US carriers later this year

When the Galaxy Note7 was discontinued, Samsung lost a big chunk of change and consumers lost the opportunity to buy that really lovely Blue Coral version of the phone. Blue Coral isn't dead, though. After announcing a Blue Coral version of the Galaxy S7 Edge in Asia, Samsung now confirms it's coming to the US too.

Coral Blue Galaxy S7 Edge coming to Taiwan and Singapore in November

It's rare for our David Ruddock to call anything "absolutely stunning," let alone a blue and slightly orange phone of all things, but Samsung managed to extract that statement out of him when he had some hands-on with the Galaxy Note 7 (RIP). And David wasn't the only one to think that. So what's Samsung to do with this splendidly concocted color now that it can't market and sell it on the Note 7? Well, it's releasing it for its other flagship device, the Galaxy S7 Edge.

And it is a beaut. Behold.
