The Blue Coral variant of the Galaxy S7 edge can now be purchased unlocked through Amazon for $620
When the Galaxy Note 7 got axed, not only did Samsung kill off one of the best smartphones of 2016, but they also took away on of the most striking color combinations we've ever seen on a smartphone - Blue Coral. Samsung announced back in late October that a Blue Coral version of the Galaxy S7 edge would make its way to the United States, and all of the big carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon) received the Blue Coral variant of the smartphone around mid-November. This was certainly great news for those who are loyal to those carriers, but those who prefer to buy smartphones through other retailers were left a bit in the dark.

However, that is up until now. After about a month of waiting, the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge can now be purchased from Amazon completely unlocked. This certainly is phenomenal news, but it is worth keeping in mind that the version of the S7 edge that Amazon is selling is the international variant. What does this mean for you? The international model isn't guaranteed to work on all carriers here in the States, but it should work perfectly fine on any GSM-based network (AT&T and T-Mobile). 


If that international status of the Blue Coral S7 edge on Amazon doesn't phase you, then you should be rather pleased to hear that Amazon is asking just $619.99 for the smartphone. That certainly isn't cheap, but it's considerably less than what the four major carriers are asking for the handset if you wanted to buy it outright through them. Do take note that the phone could arrive after Christmas with Expedited Shipping currently offering an arrival date between December 21st and the 28th, so if you're looking to get the phone as a present for someone, you'll want to get your order is sooner rather than later.

Wow, great price for the most gorgeous, solid phone in existence.

The Nexus 6P is the better of the two, so obviously I disagree.

Funny how you, and your fellow Apple trolls found your way to a Samsung's article, yet you ignored the two articles about Apple's plans to go with that gimmicky, useless, prone to burn-ins "Shamsung" Amoled panel. You guys are the PERFECT example of a bunch of blind, hypocrite, annoying fanboys.

What are you complaining about majerk? You're clearly salty for some reason. Is it because I said the Nexus 6P was better? Or is it because you're still fuming because Shamesung screwed you with the Note 7.

1- One thing you should've known by now, I am not easily triggered like you, so bring on those insults. 2- When you want to insult someone, try something new, don't use someone's else creativity. 3- Your opinion about what's the best android phone is moot, we all know you are a biased troll. 4- I was just pointing out to the fact that you, and the flock of Apple trolls, jumped on a Samsung's article, but ignored TWO articles about Apple's next iPhone, because it will bring out the hypocrisy stored in your zombie brains.

1. Apparently you are otherwise you wouldn't be so salty about my comment. I'm surprised you can count past 3. 2. OK majerk. 3. Why do you care if I said the Nexus 6P is better? Remember you're the one who got screwed by them. 4. I'm not even an iPhone user you dolt. Were you not paying attention? But you're one to talk since the Shamesung trolls do the same thing including one bandwagon rider. So spare me the bs.

LMAO. +1 for the "majerk". 1. One thing you should've known by now, he is easily triggered like rest of the samsung fanboys here but tried really hard not to show it and failed miserably. 2. Majerk is a great use of word. 3. I agree with your opinion about what is the best android phone right now. 4. Don't listen to Mr. Hypocrite. He'll spout any kind of nonsense to defend samsung and hide it saltiness.

Well said +1

Got mine from Mywit for $450. Not brand new, but insurance replacement quality. I'm happy with my decision.

This is definitely not the best phone you can buy for your money. Iphone7 plus or oneplus 3T are worth their price tag

It IS the best 2016 phone. After Note7 was killed. 2016 will be remembered as the worst year in the mobile World, when the lame Pixel and the jackless iPhone7 managed to be in the first 3.

I hate that Samsung are only offering this color with the S7 Edge, why not offer it with the regular S7 as well?!

I guess their logic is that people who wanted a bigger Samsung phone will go with that.

I don't think so. The Rose gold, Blue, glossy black, and even Batman edition were all exclusive to the Edge's variant.

Edge is more expensive, so any who wants the colors has to pay up

Blue coral is really unique. Looks much better in person. The metal parts on the side are also copper gold instead of silver like other models. With that being that, I don't think Samsung Pay would work on the international model. Am I correct? You obviously won't be able to use WiFi calling on t-mobile either.
