It is a bit surprising that Samsung is making little to no effort to curb the consistent leaks about its upcoming Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. We have seen press renders and live images of the devices that would be unveiled this Sunday in Barcelona. On Monday, Samsung Indonesia posted a teaser video showing off the Galaxy S7 Edge with waterproof and wireless charging capabilities.
You can buy Galaxy S7 Edge even before launch
Now someone has posted what appears to be a real Galaxy S7 Edge on Dubai’s classified site Dubizzle for sale. It is still unclear if it was a clever trick to leak the next-gen flagship. All the three images in the listing show the device sitting in a plain white box. That means it could be a sample for press or carrier testing. Branded boxes come when the phones are ready to ship to customers.
The guy has put the Galaxy S7 Edge up for sale at AED 4,500 ($1,225) and tried to justify the exorbitant price by saying, “Get before commercial launch, imported from USA.” The smartphone looks complete with a bar code and IMEI sticker. The person has also listed the Galaxy S7 for AED 4,200 ($1,144), but without any pictures.
Samsung Pay to be launched with Galaxy S7 in Russia?
The Galaxy S7 Edge can be seen sporting a design that resembles that of the Galaxy S6 Edge. Besides price, the listing also reveals the retail box contents. There is a data cable, a wall charger, and a USB adapter. It also has a small box for a wired headset, which is the same model as the one bundled with last year’s Galaxy S6.
In another leak, a report suggests that the Korean company would launch its mobile payments service Samsung Pay in Russia alongside the Galaxy S7. The report shows an image of promotional material featuring a smartphone, likely the Galaxy S7, with a tagline that says Samsung Pay supported. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will reportedly feature a 12-megapixel main camera, a USB Type-C port, a microSD card slot, and a pressure-sensitive display.
