A prior screenshot of T-Mobile's internal inventory system showed that the carrier was planning to launch the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge. A source has now revealed T-Mobile will launch the smartphone on Friday, Nov. 18.
The Pink Gold Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were released exclusively by Best Buy in the U.S. in late August, which was also around the same time that Samsung began shipping its latest flagship Galaxy Note 7. The company also introduced a new Blue Coral color option that was exclusive to the Note 7 and the hue was an instant hit, causing up to a three-week wait to get the new color.

Customers can also choose to pay for the smartphone in full for $789.99.
T-Mobile hasn't made any official announcement about its launch of the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge but that should change very soon. We'll update you on any new details as they become available.
iPhone Color Options
Over the last couple of years, smartphone makers have been able to make color a major feature in choosing a new handset. In September 2013, Apple launched the iPhone 5s and added a new color option, Gold, which quickly became the most in demand model when the company began selling its new iPhones.
The launch of the iPhone 6s in 2015 introduced Rose Gold to Apple's iPhone lineup and as expected, it was extremely popular since it was exclusive to the new iPhones. Samsung decided to get in on the trend and countered Apple by unveiling new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge models in Pink Gold in April.
