Samsung's official response to Galaxy S7 Active water resistance issue: 'Try it.'

Meanwhile, you can check out the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition in the official video and images below.

"Samsung stands behind this water resistance certification, and will replace any Galaxy S7 active under its standard limited warranty, should water damage occur".

As a Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment section, Samsung first introduced a limited Olympic Games edition device back in 1998, to tie in with the Nagano 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

At this point, we don't know if there was some sort of defect in both units of the S7 active tested by Consumer Reports or if there is a larger overall issue with the Galaxy S7 active line.

The Olympic Games Edition has an Olympics logo on the rear side of the phone along with a yellow telephone speaker grille and trim on the home button, red power button, green volume keys, and blue trim around the camera lens, each representing Olympic colors. The colors will be prominent in the S7's UI as well, including the contact screens, dial, messages, and notification bar. Do you think it's worthwhile paying that much for the special edition Galaxy S7 Edge? Samsung has also developed a new 3D Flag application ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Users can also decorate their devices with Olympic motifs, choosing from a selection of pre-loaded Rio 2016-themed wallpapers. The Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Games Limited Edition is being released in a handful of countries: the US, Brazil, China, South Korea, and Germany.

One hundred customers selected randomly will be offered Gear IconX cord-free earbuds, which feature an in-ear heart rate monitor and standalone music player.
