Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge prices, local availability and pre-order deal revealed!

Samsung has just revealed its latest flagship smartphones at MWC 2016! Check out our hands-on article here.

So the next question is: When will the handsets go on sale and how much will they cost?

We can now reveal that pre-orders for both phones will commence on 26th February at 10AM, with pre-order customers able to collect their handsets on Friday, 11th March. General sales will commence on Saturday, 12th March. 

The phones will be priced at S$998 for the Galaxy S7, and S$1,098 for the Galaxy S7 Edge. Customers who pre-order will receive a free Samsung Gear VR headset (worth $148).

It’s unclear at the moment what kind of activities the telcos would be doing, though based on past experiences, they’re likely going to announce their price plans and launch activities (if any) shortly after the global announcement of the handsets. I’d also expect Samsung to announce when customers can hands-on the devices and place pre-orders (and a list of pre-order complimentary gifts) at the Samsung Experience stores. Also, since IT Show 2016 starts on March 10, expect to see the phones at the show, too.

To recap, the Galaxy S7 sports a 5.1-inch flat display, while the S7 Edge has a 5.5-inch curved display. The biggest improvements to the phones are the return of the microSD card slot for expandable storage, and a fully water and dust resistant IP68 build. The Super AMOLED display now has an always on functionality that will display the clock or a calendar at all times, and the rear camera has also been upgraded with a wider aperture, larger pixels and dual-pixel autofocus.

Inside, the S7 is running on Samsung's Exynos 8 Octa 8890 (the US version will be using Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820). Finally, both phones also boast larger batteries, with the S7 sporting a 3,000mAh battery and the S7 Edge using a 3,600mAh one.
