T-Mobile and AT&T are offering the recently released Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for $729.99 and $794.99, respectively. Those looking for a better deal can score the smartphone unlocked from Amazon for significantly less, $619.99.
Soon after Samsung released the Galaxy Note 7, it announced that high demand for the phablet outstripped supply and some color options would be delayed. As expected, the exclusive Blue Coral color option proved to be extremely popular and eventually made its way to the company's other flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7 edge, after the Note 7 recall.
T-Mobile became one of the first major carriers to begin selling the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge and AT&T soon followed. T-Mobile is currently selling the 32 GB Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 edge on installment pricing of $9.99 per month for 30 months, or $729.99 full price, while AT&T is offering the same smartphone for $26.50 per month for 30 months or $794.99. SamMobile is reporting that Amazon just joined the party and is now selling the unlocked Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge and at a much better price than T-Mobile and AT&T.
Amazon Begins Offering Blue Coral Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Amazon is now offering the unlocked 32 GB Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for $619.99 with free shipping. This is the International GSM version, which means it will only work on T-Mobile and AT&T's networks in the United States, not CDMA-based carriers Verizon and Sprint.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Specs
The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge rocks a 5.5-inch 2,560 x 1,440 Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 534 pixels per inch and a premium metal and glass design. The smartphone ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow but is expected to receive a software upgrade to Android 7.1.1 Nougat in the near future.
Samsung has chosen to use a 12-megapixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), phase detection, autofocus and LED flash on the device, with the ability to capture 4K video and a front facing 5-megapixel shooter for video chat and selfies. The handset includes 32 GB of internal storage and users are able to increase that thanks to the addition of a microSD expansion slot, which certainly comes in handy for large files like 4K video.
The Galaxy S7 edge carries an IP68 certification to be both dust proof and water resistant. Its 3,600 mAh battery provides up to 27 hours of talk time, and users can conveniently wirelessly charge the smartphone out of the box with a compatible Qi/PMA charger.
Amazon currently shows it has the unlocked Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in stock and ready to send out with free shipping for a much better price than T-Mobile and AT&T.
