Report: Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Pre-Orders Live February 21, Comes With Free Gear VR

According to a report from Android World, the same day that Samsung intends to unveil the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at MWC on February 21, the company will also open up a pre-order for the devices.

Not only could folks be able to pre-order the device, but Samsung is throwing in an additional incentive to purchase the phone. Claimed by a source, Samsung will include a free Gear VR headset with the pre-order of a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. According to the report, this pre-order special will be available February 21 through March 10. 

Also claimed by the source, Samsung intends to launch three colors of the phones in a 32GB model. This was specifically stated to be for the Netherlands, not necessarily North America. The source gave no specifics on the colors, though, it might be safe to assume they are Black, White, and Silver.

If Samsung does in fact launch a pre-order for either device on February 21, will you be picking one up? Still waiting to see if the device is worth it?

    Been holding on to my Note 3 since its launch, waiting for some significant update in smartphones to come out. I’m hoping this is it!

  • I had wished the V10 would push them to do 64GB standard, but ah well. I’ll stick with my 64GB+200GB setup. 😉

  • Tony Esposito

    Anything Samsung offers “free” I take with a grain of salt. Like that “free” $100 website credit i was given when i added a verified credit card for Samsung pay and I used on something I’ve been waiting over 2 months for. Website says coming soon, customer service claims twice now that it was restocked and sold out. Obviously my order has no priority.

    If I did pick it up, I’d look at it for a minute, then put it back down again.

  • Allyn K C

    Not really a selling point to me – there are other incentives they could offer that would be more meaningful to me. But, I can understand their reasoning … if they can get more people using Gear VR, they likely hope it’ll create demand for the Gear 360 Camera that’s also rumored to launch at MWC.

  • stanley

    There’s no way I’d pay $700-800 for a phone, especially a bloated Samsung which will probably have not so good battery life. $500 for my 6p and its the best phone I’ve owned, love vanilla Android with no bs bloat that you can’t remove and taking up space, also no laggy skin. The 6p is the top phone of 2015. Still on top in my opinion.

  • dodolom

    Prices also just released on the same site. WTF..That’s some crazy pricing

    Update : The list prices are now also confirmed by our source: Samsung Galaxy S7 will cost € 699, S7 Edge € 799.

  • Tim P

    No Thanks, unlike masses I know how bloated/terrible Touchwiz is, Samsung can’t bribe me with Free Gear VR.. may be good for Samsheep.

    • trevorsalienarms

      Tim P…you the real MVP.

  • John

    U mean Gold should be assumed. Dont want to get my hopes up for the silver version.

  • MrGulio

    Aside from the buzz about an SD card, Type C, etc I’m curious if they are using the same screens in the S7/S7E as the S6/S6E. I have friends with the S6E who have shattered their screens and feel just completely screwed because of the cost to repair.

    • M3D1T8R

      Yeah the S6E is a bad device.

  • jim

    If you don’t have a VR yet, get one, it’s getting better all the time, got my free VR with my Note 5

  • Chuck

    Preorders….LOL. As if they are going to sell out.

    • Suicide_Note

      It’s not about selling out. It’s about getting the phones into people’s hands quicker.

    • X-47B

      You sound more concerned that Samsung shareholders.

  • IgotGAME

    Man…S7 Edge is looking good. Buy that or what for the Note 6. Decisions…Decisions…

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Buy now and sell for the Note 6….if you want the Note 6.

      • jim

        I’d wait for the Note 6, they are always the better phone

    • NeilGeorge

      I am waiting for the Note 6

  • Grayson

    Do I have to buy a carrier version in the US that’s bloated and locked to high hell? Then no, Samsung, I will not buy your crap. Unlocked or GTFO.

    • Me

      Don’t worry it’ll come bloated unlocked as well.

  • xzero425x

    Pre-ordering day 1

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I’m interested. But I doubt they’ll be letting me, in the US, Pre-order and international unlocked device. So I’ll just wait for the Ebayers and the Swappa-ers

    • glimmerman76

      the only problem with the EU version is samsung pay wont work.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Isn’t Samsung pay coming to the UK at the announcement!

        • glimmerman76

          rumor but according to there site its coming in early 2016 so lets hope. I sold my 920F…

  • The Doctor

    If Samsung brings back the microSD card slots and these phones have water resistance (as rumored), then I’ll be preordering one on the 21st. I plan on getting the 32GB silver S7 edge (if that combination is available, of course).

    • Miguel

      That’s gonna be my choice too, the Edge in silver looks good.

  • Justin

    Does this mean that there is no USB Type C port?

    • person

      Yes. Micro USB again.

  • Inspector Butters

    i’ll take anyones gear VR if they dont want it

  • IgotGAME

    SD Card confirmed? Or nah?

    • The Doctor

      Not confirmed, but the rumors are strong all over the place, which gives me high hopes that it’s back.

  • capncoad

    Touchwiz has to be seriously toned down, and that weird lag after one month of using it needs to go away. And the battery life needs to get through the day with some breathing room.

    • Arian

      Okay, I think I might be crazy, but I’ve had my S6 Edge since it came out last April and I still have not experienced any lag. I don’t have any custom ROM on it either, just Nova Launcher. I never close my recent apps and am constantly using it, even more than my laptop. I switch between two keyboards (including Swiftkey) and haven’t noticed any delay either. Nor on the camera. I think TouchWiz HAS been seriously toned down.

      • trevorsalienarms

        It has been toned way down. Just the stigma of how bad TW used to be is gonna take years to wash off completely.

        My Note 5 is hands-down the best Android device I’ve ever owned, including Nexuses. Touchwiz has some weird stock colors (which can be changed), but beyond that it hasn’t gotten in the way at all. And I like some of the extra control resolution and features not found on vanilla Android.

    • MrGulio

      It will be interesting to see how much of an effect the “doze mode” in Marshmallow has on battery life.

  • coh303

    I may be selling my 6P to get either the S7 or the G5 depending on how impressive they are. Love my Nexus overall, but it is huge. I want a phone I can wield safely with one hand. I have a Surface that I can use to consume media meant for a larger screen.

  • jonzey231

    I mean, I’ve been using a Nexus forever but since John Legere gave my brother an S6 Edge a while back, I’ve been pretty impressed with it. TouchWiz isn’t what it used to be. This could be something to think about, especially since they’re offering a VR set. That’s a pretty slick deal for someone who planned on getting one anyways.

  • Suicide_Note

    No, thank you. I’ll stick with my 6P.

    • TypoCorrecto

      Same here, but it’s nice they throw a Gear VR in there.

      • ChrisI

        that’s how they get rid of them. Give them away for free.

        • cdm283813

          That was the entire plan in the first place. And no; I’m not being sarcastic. Their mission is to sale phones.

    • The Doctor

      I returned my 6P so I could get the S7.

      • Suicide_Note

        Hopefully you enjoy it. Good luck!

        • The Doctor

          It’s not the comment I expected, but it’s refreshing and pleasant.

          Thank you, Suicide_Note.

        • patt

          No way did you switch from note to 6P?:D

      • Chuck

        What a horrible decision you made.!!!

        • The Doctor

          I’m happy with the decision. Just because it’s a horrible decision for YOU doesn’t mean it’s a bad decision for ME.

      • Dominick White

        Why did you return the 6p?

        • The Doctor

          I didn’t care for it. I didn’t like that the fingerprint sensor was on the back of the phone. I didn’t like vanilla Android. It was rather boring. And the battery life wasn’t that great. I don’t know how a phone with a 3450 mAh battery can have such horrible battery life.

          • Davi Jones

            That’s what I too don’t get. How a software based company like Google and even Motorola can make their battery so bad tho they have bigger batteries compared wit the competition

      • A tech god

        Sold my overhyped 6P

        • The Doctor

          It was kind of overhyped. I didn’t care for it.

        • TeeJay1100

          The 6p was OVERATED & OVERHYPED. I WOULDNT PAY 50¢ for it.

      • mcdonsco

        Sold mine and went back to a note 5. Didn’t like the fp reader on the back and the lack of wireless charging. Plus, its a tad larger than the note 5.

        • The Doctor


    • trevorsalienarms

      You’ll show ’em.

      • Grayson


        Stock down 25% in the last year. I believe they are being shown…

        • trevorsalienarms

          Yeah, that’s not great. But they’re not alone and they still dominate the global smartphone market.

        • Spinach Chin

          So what? Apple is down 30% from their 12 month high. What does that prove?

    • A tech god

      6P is a cheap midrange phone acting like a flagship. S7 is all the best cutting edge tech true flagship phone

      • Suicide_Note

        Uh, they’re both flagship devices. Nothing is midrange about the 6P.

        • A tech god

          Bad battery life for the size. Horrible mid range camera & video performance. No OIS mid range. Speaker quality is cheap. Snapdragon 820 will show how bad the 810 is.

          • Tim P

            except No OIS none of what you mentioned is valid, and i’ll conter you with two words – Touchwiz sucks..

          • MicroNix

            Then you need to educate yourself as the improved TW does not suck.

          • Suicide_Note

            1. Battery life is just fine to me. I get through a full work day and still have over 50% left. My previous phones would be down to anywhere from near zero to less than 30% left.

            2. The camera was one of the top 3 when it was released. Check out DxOMark and educate yourself. It’s definitely not midrange.

            3. Speakers are pretty good. Not quite Boomsound, but not to far behind that.

            4. No one knows how the 820 will perform because no one has used it yet. People thought the 810 would blow away the 808, but that didn’t happen at first. After several revisions, the 810 performs very well in the 6P. Again, you should educate yourself instead of just trying to troll and make yourself look stupid in the process.

          • A tech god

            1. 3450 and mediocre screen on time. 810’s fault. Phones with 820 are going to have huge battery life gains.
            2. It maybe able to take a top 3 pic but the sw is weak and is not good point and shoot. Video is laughable at 4k.
            3. Speaker quality over medium sound shows how cheap the speakers are
            4. 810 is as weak as a 801 and 805. 820 will prove how fooled many were.
            So please educate yourself

          • Tim P

            you are not so bright, are you?

            1. Comparing 1 year old CPU with not yet released CPU?
            2. Pic’s are as good as Note 5 in day light, and night shots trump Note 5, 4k Video is fine but I agree it can be better
            3. I’ll take front facing dual speakers over back speakers any day, 6P speakers are next best to M8/M9.
            4. again comparing 1 year old CPU with not yet released CPU?

          • A tech god

            1. Comparing a 1 year old cpu with 2 year old performance. Let that one soak in.
            2. Lowlight 6P is nice 4k is not fine. It’s crap. worse than some midrange phones.
            3. You know what i said is true. I also have HTC boomsound.
            4. Read #1 . 820 is out

          • The Note 5 and V10 have 3000mAh batteries, smaller than the 3450 in the 6P. Speaker is far above that of Samsung and it’s bottom mounted speaker. The SD820 wasn’t out when the 6P was released, it was and still is the flagship processor until phones start coming out with the SD820.

          • A tech god

            3000mAh Note 5 stellar battery life. 3000mAh V10 808 horrible battery life with much weaker performance. 3450mAh 6P with 6.0 doze and lightweight stock android mediocre screen on time 810.

          • Tim P

            I doubt you are capable to understand this, but I’ll try to educate you – unlike Touchsuck stock android don’t kill apps to conserve battery.

      • Dominick White

        It is just a phone. Relax

        • A tech god

          I will not relax! hehe

    • I have a 6P but think I’ll sell it and get the S7 Edge.
