Claimed Galaxy S7 Edge pops up with prices and box contents
Samsung is being pretty lax with the Galaxy S7 leaks this year, especially in the last two weeks, when we saw it next best thing leak as press renders in three color versions, and in flesh and blood as well. Yesterday Samsung itself revealed the looks of the handset in a prematurely posted promo video, confirming the rumors it will be waterproof and sport wireless charging.
Nothing prepared us for this next leak you see below, though. Someone on Dubizzle (that's Dubai's version of Craigslist) has posted what looks like a real Galaxy S7 Edge for sale, we kid you not. The guy asks the equivalent of $1225 for it, which sounds pretty steep if you are not a Dubai sheikh, but totally worth it for what may turn out to be the best handset of the season that hasn't even been announced yet. "Get before commercial launch, imported from USA," is the post's eye-watering description, and the phone seems to be complete with a bar code and IMEI stickers indeed. The Dubizzle posting also lists the price of a Galaxy S7 at $1144, and the ad title claims that the guy is also selling that one, though it's only the S7 Edge in the pictures, judging from the sloping screen sides.
Adding insult to injury, the classified has shown what will potentially arrive with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge out of the box, despite the fact that the phone is put in a generic-looking carton. We've got a data cable, a wall charger, and a USB adapter, as well as what looks like a small box for a wired headset. Indeed, a quick search returns the EO-EG920BW coding to be the same pair of in-ear headphones that come with the Galaxy S6, so that's what may be packed with the Galaxy S7 as well. All in all, if all recent leaks are correct, it seems that the grand changes with the Galaxy S7 will be under the hood. Any takers?
Thanks for the tip, Rohit!
