The Black Pearl variant is listed with the price of Rs 56,900 but comes with 128GB of internal storage as compared to 32GB in other variants.
In a quest to stand against the new colour variants introduced by Apple for its iPhone this year, Samsung has now listed the Black Pearl variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge on its Indian website. The smartphone comes with a price of Rs 56,900 and will be shipped starting December 30. Further, given the extra price, the Black Pearl variant comes with 128GB of internal storage. Samsung first unveiled the Black Pearl colour variant earlier this month in South Korea. Further, the South-Korean giant also introduced the Pink Gold variant in India last week.

Moreover, as the name suggests, the S7 Edge boasts an edge display, like the S6 Edge and is water and dust resistant boasting IP68 certification. Though the smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Samsung is already testing Android Nougat on the device via Galaxy Beta Program.
For the camera, the device sports a 12-megapixel camera with F1.7 aperture. Besides, the rear camera of S7 Edge is armed with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) technology, motion panorama, motion photo, and hyper lapse features. Up front, It has a 5-megapixel front camera that comes with wide selfie mode.
