The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are expected to be near-perfect in terms of what they offer, yet their pricing was rumored to be on the same lines as the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge despite the inclusion of notably more features. A new leak is reiterating that Samsung’s next hero devices will not be commanding a higher price for those features.
According to Tweakers.net, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be priced at Euro 699 and Euro 799 respectively for the 32GB model, at least in the Benelux region (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg). The S7 edge’s price tag is less than the Galaxy S6 edge’s launch price by 50 Euro, which shouldn’t come as a surprise as the S6 edge’s novelty factor of being the first device with dual-edge displays no doubt added to its market cost a year ago.
The site also says the region will be getting the Exynos model (the Snapdragon 820 will only be present in the US and China, as rumors have suggested). More importantly, only the 32GB variant will be available. The inclusion of a microSD slot on the devices should alleviate the non-availability of a 64GB version, though the 64GB model should be seen in other markets around the world.
A free Gear VR will reportedly be given away to those who buy either device early, an offer that is sure to attract a few consumers. March 11 is once again confirmed to be the date the S7 and S7 edge will hit retail.
