In addition to the four US carriers that are selling the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Best Buy is also selling both smartphones beginning today. In addition to the black and gold models being sold at the carriers, Best Buy also has the Titanium Silver being sold for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. At the same price as well. They are offering the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for Verizon and Sprint on two-year contracts at $199 and $299 respectively. While the AT&T models are on installment plans. Coming in at $23.17 per month for the Galaxy S7 and $26.50 per month for the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Best Buy, like the US wireless carriers, are also offering the Samsung Gear VR for free with the purchase of either the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. They are also offering up a 64GB microSD card with the purchase of either device. A nice promotion, especially considering the microSD card slot returned in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
For the past two weeks, Best Buy has been doing pre-orders for both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and those should already have shipped out to everyone that pre-ordered. Now you'll be able to order it online or walk into your local Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile store and walk out with the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 Edge. It's great to see both of these devices launching at all of the carriers in the US at the same time. Something we don't see often - outside of Apple - and something that needs to happen more often, to say the least.
The Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED display, with the Galaxy S7 Edge having a 5.5-inch display, both are running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor along with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. Both also have a 12-megapixel camera around back. The Galaxy S7 features a 3000mAh battery and the Galaxy S7 Edge with a 3600mAH battery, and according to early reviews, these will definitely keep you going throughout the day, unlike the Galaxy S6.
