AT&T outs prices and release date for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
America's second largest carrier just put out a press release detailing the launch of the newly announced Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on its network. Just as expected, the Galaxy S7 would cost north of $600 there.
On AT&T Next 24, the carrier's 30-month installment plan, the monthly payment for the 32 GB version of Galaxy S7 starts at $23.17, while the 32 GB Galaxy S7 edge will net you $26.50 a month. Both phones will be available in Black Onyx and Gold Platinum colors, while Galaxy S7 edge could also be bought in Silver Titanium. That's roughly $695 and $799, respectively, while AT&T doesn't yet list the price to purchase the handset outright, though we'd wager to guess it will be $699 and $799.
The great bonus with the two handsets, besides the three Gear VR and 6 free games for those who preorder between February 23 and March 18th, will be the DIRECTV collaboration on the S7 and S7 edge. If you are a DIRECTV subscriber, you can now watch live TV and movies on your smartphone. The handsets' Quick Remote function will allow your phone to serve as a remote control pause, rewind, and fast forward on your TV at home, or control the DIRECTV app with Samsung’s S-Voice virtual assistant.
