Samsung formally announces the global launch of Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
In many parts of the world, it's already March 11 - the day when Samsung's Galaxy S7 series is officially hitting shelves in various markets. Thus, Samsung just formally announced that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are, indeed, launching starting today in the US, Europe, Australia, Singapore, and its home country (South Korea). 

Available to pre-order since February 23, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge already started shipping to customers of T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint - so we're not surprised to see that their official launch is happening right on time. As you probably already know, prices for the Galaxy S7 start at around $650 (off contract), while the Galaxy S7 edge costs $100 more. 

In addition to having a refined design, the Galaxy S7 series brings plenty of improvements over the S6 family, including dust- and water-resistance, more powerful processors (Snapdragon 820 in the US and China, Exynos 8890 in the rest of the world), new 12 MP rear cameras with Dual Pixel technology, and microSD card support. Moreover, while the Galaxy S7 keeps the 5.1-inch Quad HD screen of the S6, the S7 edge has been enlarged to accommodate a 5.5-inch display (also Quad HD).

Apparently, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge pre-orders have topped expectations, though it will be a while before actual sales numbers are revealed. Have you ordered any of Samsung's new high-end smartphones? Or do you plan to do it at some point? In case you need help with your decision, check out our Galaxy S7 review and Galaxy S7 edge review.
