A new leak has surfaced on the Internet claiming to show the Galaxy S7 Edge box contents as well as tipping pricing details of the handset ahead of MWC launch on Sunday.
First picked up by PhoneArena, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has been posted on Dubizzle, a Dubai-based website, with box contents images as well as price. According to the listing, the Galaxy S7 Edge is up for sale at exorbitant AED 4,500 (approximately Rs. 84,000) while the Galaxy S7 is listed for AED 4,200 (approximately Rs. 78,000). The listing has a tagline that says, “Get before commercial launch, imported from USA.”
Looking at the purported images, the Galaxy S7 Edge is seen sporting a design similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge. The front is seen housing the physical button while the back is again seen featuring a glass rear. Unlike what the recent press renders of the Galaxy S7 Edge have showed, the images on the Dubai-based site don’t have the Galaxy S7 Edge printed at the back of the handset.
It’s worth noting that all these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt as Samsung has not mentioned anything about the upcoming device and the legitimacy of the leaks remains questionable. In other leak, a report says that Samsung Pay payment service may launch in Russia alongside the Galaxy S7 smartphone. Sammobile has cited a Twitter user who shared an image of promotional material featuring a handset, very likely the Galaxy S7, with a tagline that says Samsung Pay supported.
Case maker Spigen has listed new Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge cases which corroborate previously leaked design of the handsets. The new listing of the case maker for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge also suggests early March release.
A recent report had suggested that the Galaxy S7 will come at a starting price of EUR 699.99 (approximately Rs. 53,500) for the 32GB model while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will start at EUR 799.99 (approximately Rs. 61,000) for the 32GB model. Earlier reports have suggested that the both the phones will start to ship only starting March 11.
