Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with Exynos SoC unofficially available in the US
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.
