The recently released Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S7, is just starting to make its way into the hands of those who placed pre-orders, as well as showing up in carrier stores. Samsung’s newest “next big thing” is finally materializing after a long string of leaks and rumors leading up to the phone being made official at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Already meeting with big expectations, the phone is still making its way to some carriers. Among them are Sprint subsidiaries Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. While both carriers will be getting only the vanilla Galaxy S7 and skipping out on the Edge variant, they will be getting the same no-compromises Galaxy S7 that the larger carriers are getting. Boost Mobile will be releasing the handset on March 11, while Virgin Mobile subscribers will be able to get their hands on their very own Galaxy S7 starting from March 18.
As a quick reminder of the specs, the Galaxy S7 packs a 5.1 inch super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor backed by 4 gigabytes of RAM. The whole package is kept humming along by a 3,000 mAh battery. The phone also has 32 gigabytes of internal storage, of which 8 is taken up by TouchWiz and system files. Not to worry, of course, as there is a microSD card slot on board to store your files and even your apps. To boot, the phone is water-resistant, alleviating worries for those who are concerned about any accidents that might happen.
Though it hit the premium carriers first and can already be bought unlocked, the Galaxy S7 and, for some carriers, the Galaxy S7 Edge should start making their way to regional carriers and MNVOs fairly soon. As for Boost and Virgin, you’ll be able to score the Black Ony Galaxy S7 for $649 plus tax, but no other versions are available. There is no word on whether the Galaxy S7 Edge will be coming later on, though it could be assumed that it would have likely came through side by side with the Galaxy S7 if it was going to come at all.
