Samsung Announce Global Launch of Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge

March 11, 2016 - Written By Tom Dawson

Last month saw the announcement of the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge from Samsung, and while this wasn’t surprising at all, the speedy turnaround from Samsung was. During their event, Samsung proudly announced that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge would go on sale all over the world at the beginning of the next month. Friday the 11th of March was the date, and how time flies, as that day is finally here. Many Samsung fans will already have pre-ordered their device, while others might be waiting for them to appear in stores to take a look before making any final decisions. Either way, users will be getting their hands on either a new Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge this weekend all over the globe.

Despite the fact that we knew today would be the day, Samsung is still making some noise over at their official blog, and who can blame them? In said blog post, Samsung names the US, Europe, Singapore, Australia and Korea as just some of the markets that the two new devices are launching in, but 60 different countries all over the world will be getting the device today. Here in North America, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have been available for pre-order from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon with the majority of them offering a free Gear VR headset, or in the case of Verizon a free Gear S2 instead of the VR headset. Elsewhere, the Galaxy S7 has landed on networks across the UK, and will be available directly from Samsung’s regional websites.

Speaking of which, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will cost $669.99 and $779.99, respectively while in Europe they’ll cost around €699 and €799, respectively. Our UK readers, while also having the option to join the Galaxy upgrade program, will need to pay £569 and £639 for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, respectively. These are prices for the 32GB variants, and larger storage options will cost extra. We’ve got lots of information on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge available on the site, and those looking forward to the launch of these two new devices don’t have any longer to wait.
