If you were wowed by the introduction of the 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge over the weekend, you’ll be glad to know that pre-orders for both smartphones have now opened up in the United States.

The off-contract pricing for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge comes in at $699 and $799 respectively, however, total out-of-pocket pricing varies depending on what carrier you select. For example, picking up a Galaxy S7 from Verizon will cost you $28/month for 24 months, making for a total price of $672. Buying the same phone on Sprint... Read more...

One of the most talked about smartphones is a model that's not even out yet, the Galaxy S7. Not without reason, Samsung's next flagship is an interesting product on a number of levels, and as such there's been no shortage of rumors, leaked photos, and outright speculation. One of the recurring themes among it all is whether or not Samsung will bring back expandable storage via microSD, and the latest leak suggests it will.The folks at Android Authority secured some photos and what they feel are concrete details about the Galaxy S7 from an "anonymous insider." Surprisingly, the leaked photos aren't terrible—how often have we been able to say THAT? One of them shows the microSD/SIM card tray combo... Read more...
Samsung is set to announce its next generation Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones on February 21st. It seems as though not much is being left to the imagination as specs and renders of the smartphones have leaked over the past few weeks, and now we’re learning about an enticing nugget of information for early adopters. Samsung will reportedly give customers that pre-order a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge between February 21st and March 10th a free Gear VR Headset. Now before you brush such a notion off as unbelievable and a bit over-the-top, remember that the Gear VR retails for $99. So it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Samsung would hope to not only boost early sales figures for... Read more...
The closer we get to the launch of Samsung's next generation Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets, the more information is leaked to the media. That includes pictures, but don't worry, the newest unofficial photos follow (if just barely) the unwritten rule that all leaked snapshots must be poor quality.We're not proponents of the unwritten rule, but given the number of leaked photos we've seen throughout the years, we're pretty certain it exists. More often than not, pre-release snapshots suffer from low lighting, copious blur as if the photographer taped his camera to a washing machine during the spin cycle, and other signs of bad photography.Whatever, it is what it is. In this case, there... Read more...
The pressure is on Samsung's recently anointed mobile boss D.J. Koh to spark a flurry of Galaxy smartphone sales with its next smartphone launch, and just as importantly, be prepared for the demand that follows. He'll get his chance on February 21, 2016, the day Samsung's planning to host its next annual Unpacked event. Samsung tipped in the date in a teaser video that begins with a shot of its Gear VR headset. The video quickly transitions to a blue box over which the hashtag #TheNextGalaxy appears, followed by the aforementioned date, which incidentally happens to be the day before Mobile World Congress in Barcelona kicks off. While not official, we can reasonably presume that the next Galaxy... Read more...
We’ve heard plenty about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but we haven’t seen much with regards to official images of the unreleased smartphones. Well, you can always count on Evan Blass to spoil the fun for manufacturers, as the serial leaker has provided some high quality renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagships. As you can see from the images below, Samsung didn’t reinvent the wheel this time around with regards to design. Just as Apple keeps a two-year cadence with its smartphone designs (i.e. iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 6/6s), Samsung looks to be going down the same route -- both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge look nearly identical to their predecessors. There are some naming changes,... Read more...
Though they're bitter rivals in the mobile space, Samsung and Apple often show each other the sincerest form of flattery, which is imitation. You can argue that one copies the other more often, but they both do it, often to the benefit of customers. The latest example of this has Samsung planning to roll out a Galaxy smartphone upgrade program similar to the one Apple offers for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus devices.Details are in short order, but it's said the program will kick off with the launch of Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy S7, which is expected to happen around March. Like Apple's program for iPhones, Samsung's program would allow customers to upgrade to a new model handset every year... Read more...
Samsung has a new boss in charge of its mobile division, D.J. Koh, and the pressure's on to turn things around after a series of missteps that led to a changing of the guard. His first real test will be the impending launch of Samsung's Galaxy S7 handset, an as-yet unannounced phone that's rumored to ship with a 5.7-inch display.Previous rumors pointed to a 5.5-inch display for the Galaxy S7, though based on a screenshot showing the phone's specs, it appears that Samsung plans to roll with a 5.7-inch display instead, at least for one of the models -- there's been chatter that Samsung could release two or even three display options. That brings up several possible scenarios, one of them being... Read more...
Samsung was expecting a miraculous turnaround in its smartphone business with the launch of the Galaxy S6 family, but things didn’t exactly go as planned. Mobile profits are down and sales never quite reached the lofty estimates that Samsung envisioned. The South Korean electronics conglomerate has the opportunity to turn things around with the Galaxy S7, but don’t expect to see a total rethink or change in direction as we saw with the Galaxy S5 to Galaxy S6 transition. Samsung is looking to make some meaningful improvements to the Galaxy S7, and this will mainly be an evolutionary redesign. First and foremost, Samsung is expected to make the Galaxy S7 available in two screen sizes: 5.2 inches... Read more...
Information is starting to spill out about Samsung's next generation of flagship handsets, which will presumably be called the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Those supposedly in the know say the new phones won't be a drastic departure from the Galaxy S6 line, though there will be some notable feature upgrades, such as a pressure sensitive display.Adding a pressure sensitive display would take away one of the advantages Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have over the Galaxy line. It's not clear how Samsung intends to take advantage of the feature, though on the latest iPhone handsets, the different levels of touch -- called 3D Touch -- allow for new levels of interaction depending on the amount...

When Samsung introduced its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices, it was universally praised for switching from plastic to glass and metal for a more premium feel, though the change in design came at a cost. Certain features were left out, one of the biggest being expandable storage by way of a microSD card slot. Those who found that omission to be a deal killer will be happy to know that Samsung may bring the microSD card slot back with the Galaxy S7.Bear in mind that nothing is even close to official about this, but according to the rumblings of an Italian-language website and sources it deems as "reliable," Samsung may opt to bring back expandable storage on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge,...

You don't need us to tell you that not all smartphones aren't created equal, but did you know that's even sometimes true of the same model shipping to different markets? Samsung has been known to use multiple chipsets in the same model smartphone shipping to different territories, and its forthcoming Galaxy S7 smartphone might be the next handset to go down that road.Citing South Korea's Electronic Times and its unnamed industry sources, Reuters reports that Samsung will use two different mobile processors in the Galaxy S7. Models shipping to the U.S. market and China will reportedly rock Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 System-on-Chip (SoC), while those sold in other markets will use Samsung's own... Read more...
