Unlocked Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge now available in the US
With more than 25 million units sold so far, it can be said that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are two successful Samsung flagships already. However, they are still far from leaving the market, since the unlocked versions have just become available in the United States.
According to Samsung, the two handsets "work on most U.S. GSM and CDMA networks and put the Galaxy of products, services and experiences within reach of every U.S. customer." Although they are not tied to any network, the two unlocked Galaxy S7 handsets allow their users to make payments, connect to wearables, and can also handle VR content. Their highlights are also the same as those of the carrier locked versions, including advanced protection from dust and water, Always-On Display, fast wireless charging, Samsung KNOX support, and more.
The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are both available for purchase directly from Samsung.com ($669.99 USD for the S7 and $769.99 USD for the S7 Edge), as well as from top retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Sam’s Club and Target.com, or from distributors such as Ingram Micro Inc., SYNNEX Corporation, Tech Data and Vertex Wireless.
