Samsung announced it would release a Pink Gold color option for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge back in April. The company has announced the brightly colored smartphones are now available from Best Buy.
When Apple unveiled the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, it also introduced a new color option for its flagship smartphone duo. Rose Gold quickly became the most in-demand color choice when the smartphones went on sale. Part of its appeal was instantly recognizable, as it was only available as a choice for Apple's latest iPhone, allowing users to quietly brag they had the latest and greatest.
This wasn't a new play from Apple, as it made the same move with the Gold iPhone 5s in 2013 and it's expected to repeat adding a new color when it launches the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a Space Black color choice that will be exclusive to the next-generation iPhones.
Samsung has also put focus on adding new color options. Its just released Galaxy Note 7, which is available in a new Blue Coral color, is currently sold out and new customers face up to a 3-week wait for the phablet.
Samsung followed in Apple's Rose Gold footsteps when it announced the Pink Gold Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in April but the color choice has not been available to customers in the United States, until now.
If you've been holding out purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge because you desired the Pink Gold hue, the company has announced that Best Buy will be the exclusive seller of the color option.
Best Buy is now offering the Pink Gold Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge with 32 GB of internal storage. The retailer is only selling AT&T, Verizon and Sprint variants of both smartphones, sorry T-Mobile customers.
