Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus Price and Release Date
There’s no doubt the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus price will be the most expensive when looking at all the S7 variants launching in 2016. For some, it’ll be a small price to pay for something so amazing while others are likely to look the other way when seeing the premium price tag associated.
We’re expecting to see a launch price in the area of $900 for the full purchase price. Carriers will offer incentives and lease programs which will mean you won’t have to fork out nearly 1000 bucks at once which will mean spreading out the payments over a series of months.
Here in the US, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T will all feature the launch, and each offers competitive pricing. You can also choose to get the GS7 Plus on Samsung’s own lease program which is expected to start late 2015 or early 2016.
The latest rumors on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus release date suggests it will be made official July of 2016 with consumer availability coming in August. The launch of the S7 Edge Plus will come about a month before another Samsung flagship, Galaxy Note 6 which is expected to launch sometime in September.
As of now, there’s no official word on which markets the Plus sized variant will end up, but we’re expecting it to be launched in larger markets including the US, UK, Canada, Germany, China, India, and many others.
