Although this variant is not officially on the US market and those who buy it will not get US warranty either, the Exynos-powered S7 Edge can be purchased on eBay.

The only Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge variants officially available in the US are driven by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. While some early benchmark results revealed the Exynos-powered variants to be much slower than those using the Snapdragon chip, especially in the graphics department, recent tests have shown otherwise.

Fortunately, US-based consumers interested in the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with the Exynos 8890 processor on board can grab it from eBay. Seller 232tech offers the international Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935F) for $200 USD less than the regular price and also provides free shipping in the US. However, the $699.99 USD handset does not come with official US warranty and has no support for CDMA networks.

The SM-G935F is available in black, gold, and silver. If the recent test results get more confirmations, and the Exynos-driven Galaxy S7 is indeed faster than its Snapdragon sibling, maybe Samsung decides to make both variants officially available in the US. We will keep an eye on this story and report as soon as we hear something new.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
