Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge today. It has also been confirmed when pre-orders will open for the new handsets and when the release will take place in launch markets. Customers in the United Kingdom appear to be getting the best deal because Samsung promises that it will deliver the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge to them a full three days before everybody else.
Pre-orders for the new handsets open February 22 in the United Kingdom, a day before US carriers start taking pre-orders, and while they’re going to release the handset on March 11, Samsung is promising delivery to UK customers who place a pre-order on March 8th. As if 72 hours of exclusivity wasn’t enough Samsung is also going to give them a free Gear VR like it’s going to give one to all customers who pre-order the new handset. The early delivery deal is available to customers in the United Kingdom who place a pre-order through O2, Vodafone, EE or Three.
