The two smartphones come in Black, White, and Gold options for hefty starting prices of 700 and 800 Euros.

The long-rumored Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now finally available for purchase in stores across parts of Europe. Current color options include Black Onyx, White Pearl, and Gold Platinum. Retail prices for the 32 GB Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will run for 700 Euros and 800 Euros, respectively.

Samsung's new premium smartphones offer dual camera sensors and a wide aperture of f/1.7 for better low-light performance. The chassis for both models are also IP68-certified for dust and water protection and include MicroSDXC support for up to 200 GB. New camera features allow for moving panoramas as well.

Internally, the Galaxy S7 series feature high-end hardware including a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 SoC, 4 GB RAM, 3000 mAh or 3600 mAh battery, and a 5.1-inch or 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display. The displays in particular have been called the most accurate of any consumer smartphone currently available including the latest iPhones from Apple. The potential of AMOLED panels has prompted Apple to invest heavily in R&D on implementing similar OLED panels for future generations of iPhones and iPads.

The Galaxy S7 is shaping up to be an excellent successor to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. It is, however, not without its faults. See our first impressions of the device for more details and data.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
