Samsung has unveiled the much-awaited Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. The devices come in 32GB and 64GB variants, but only the former model will be available in the US and some European markets.
The South Korean technology giant has confirmed only the 32GB variant of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge will be available in the US and a few markets in Europe, according to SamMobile.
The move has reportedly been necessitated by the company reintroducing the microSD card slot in the new devices after discarding it in the previous Note and S series.
Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 were unveiled Sunday, Feb. 21 in Barcelona, a day ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016). The devices will hit the stores March 11.
According to a report by GSM Arena, major carriers in the US have revealed the pricing of the devices, and here are the details:
AT&T has come up with a plan called Next 24 that offers the 32GB Galaxy S7 at $23.17/month on 30-month instalment basis, while the Galaxy S7 edge is available at $26.50/month under the same plan. The devices will come in Black Onyx and Golf Platinum colours. The Galaxy S7 edge will be available in Silver Titanium as well.
