I do not see any unlocked galaxy s7 nor galaxy s7 edge on Samsung's website .... What is the release date? Anyway, it is little too late for me, i poked Samsung to release carrier unbranded S7 or S7 Edge for a while and finally gave in for Lumia 950 XL.

I meant carrier unbranded S7 or S7 edge for USA market with valid warranty.

You'd think they would be a little nicer with the pricing since they are cutting way down on the middle men. Hard to swallow that pricing.

I couldn't get to the link, it keeps telling me access denied. But, if there are any CDMA versions, Verizon will just refuse to activate them in their system.

I'm guessing these are SD820 versions and not the Exynos versions. That'll mean no development and still dead end phones.

S7 Edge is going for 650 USD in my region, 100% genuine package from Samsung without telco contract.

Apple, Microsoft, HTC, Blackberry - all do this. I've been wondering how long it would Samsung.
