A Korean electronics giant may be trying to win over sports fans with an Olympics-themed version of its Galaxy S7 smartphone, according to a statement.

Samsung-oriented website SamMobile cited information indicating the Galaxy phone maker was working on a device codenamed Hero2_Olympic_edition.

“(T)he Galaxy S6 was codenamed Hero and the Galaxy S7 is Hero2, which makes this a pretty clear indication of what Samsung is working on,” the statement said .

At least two apps with codenames for the Olympics, dubbed IOC_Olympic_app and Rio2016_WOW_Olympic_app, are also being developed, the site added.

“The Galaxy S7 Olympic Edition will probably have VR content surrounding the popular sporting event pre-loaded, and may even have a Gear VR bundled with it for free (a deal the company offered with pre-orders of the regular Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge as well),” it said.

It also noted Samsung had a similar special variant for its Galaxy Note 3.

Thus, the electronics firm said it would make sense for Samsung to “take its Olympic partnership further with a Galaxy S7 Olympic Edition.”

On the other hand, SamMobile said Samsung announced in early 2016 that it would bring the Olympics into the realm of virtual reality.
