If you're more into real-life superheros than fantasy ones, Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition is now available at Best Buy for $850. Like the Batman Edition, this is a standard Galaxy S7 Edge on the inside, but the outside is another thing. There, you'll find a unique "black onyx" body replete with Olympic colors: A yellow-trimmed fingerprint sensor and speaker, red and green buttons and the iconic rings and camera tinted in blue. It also includes the Rio Olympics 2016 app with schedules, venue info and real-time updates and results.

Samsung said that it would only sell 2,016 of the devices around the world, including in the US, so you may need to act quick if you want one. At $850, the device is a $100 premium over the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. We originally thought it may come with a Gear IconX wireless Bluetooth earbuds, but Best Buy's listing doesn't mention those, so they may be reserved for the 12,500 Olympic athletes getting the phone for free.
