As expected, Samsung used the tremendous platform afforded by this year’s Mobile World Congress to launch the newest additions to the Galaxy family of products.
Kicking off MWC 2016, Samsung has just formally unveiled the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
Created for “today’s mobile lifestyle,” the South Korean tech giant asserts that the new devices will lead the industry with a unique mobile experience.
Per the established norm with Samsung, the company is leaving it to its carrier partners to announce device pricing and availability in countries around the world. But we can confirm that AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Wireless will carry the Marshmallow-powered Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in stores beginning March 11.
As for pre-ordering, that process kicks off at 8:00 a.m. EST tomorrow (Tuesday, February 23rd).
Boasting more power, better hardware (including speculator new cameras), and improved overall design, Samsung is hoping to strike back at the heart of Apple, which has continued to make gains on Android across the global mobile landscape with the launch of its best-selling iPhone 6s last fall.
As an added enticement to buy early, Samsung confirmed Sunday that consumers who preorder or purchase a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge between February 23 and March 18 will receive free Gear VR and a 6-game bundle, which amounts to about $150 worth of bonus goodies.
“We believe in a world that is brighter, sharper, more convenient, and more fun,” Samsung announced to the media last night. “We strive to deliver on that vision with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge by marrying elegant design with functionality and providing a seamless mobile experience.”
