As Samsung had announced at the time of unveiling the handset, the Galaxy S7 and its curved sibling, the Galaxy S7 edge, are now up for pre-order across all major carriers in the United States.

The carriers across which both phones are going up for pre-order today are Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T, with all of them promising a delivery date of March 11 — the same day the handsets are scheduled to hit the retail stores.

You have the option of buying the phone through a monthly instalment program or by outright purchasing them, which might burn a bigger hole in your wallet right now, but will be cheaper in the long run.

On Verizon, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have been priced at $672 and $792, respectively, with monthly instalment plans starting from $28 and $33/month. On T-Mobile, you can buy Samsung’s latest Galaxies for $669 and $779. AT&T is charging the highest for the retail variant of the handsets: $695 and $795; though under its Next plan you can get the handsets for $23.17 and $26.50 monthly payments. Sprint is charging the lowest at $650 and $750 for the full retail variants of the handset.

Do note that pre-ordering the handsets will get you a Gear VR for free, irrespective of which carrier you buy it from. Plus, T-Mobile is also bundling a year of free Netflix with both handsets, while Sprint will offer you a 50 percent discount if you purchase a second S7 from it.

As a reminder, Samsung is only offering the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with 32GB of memory this time around, since the handsets now come with a microSD card slot. Additionally, the U.S. variants of the S7 and S7 edge will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset and not by an Exynos 8890 chip.
