There are plenty of affordable smartphones on the market but if you expect from your handset something more than just making calls, sending texts and updating Facebook, then you need a more advanced device. Such devices, however, are not cheap. In fact, if you want one of the most premium phones, then you should get ready to pay between $700 and $800, unless you find a good promotion. And we just came cross a couple of pretty sweet deals. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Duos and Dual-SIM Galaxy S7 have just been spotted with the cheapest price tags ever.
Dual-SIM Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Duos are now on sale for just $539.99 and $599.99, respectively. This is the lowest price since the phones hit the market.
The Dual-SIM Galaxy S7 can be yours for as little as $559.99 thanks to a special Daily Steals promotion. That’s a pretty generous discount considering that the regular Galaxy S7 currently retails for around $700 on most US carriers. The Edge variant is even more expensive – it costs about $800 outright. However, if you look on eBay, you can grab a dual-SIM version for just $599.99. Of course, both phones are factory unlocked and brand new.
The international dual-SIM versions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are basically the same as US models with the exception of the processor – US variants are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, while the international Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge come with octa-core Exynos 8890 chips under the hood. It’s no reason to worry about, though, since according to some test, the Exynos processor is a tad faster and more battery efficient than the Snapdragon. The international models also don’t support Samsung Pay but it seems like a small price to pay for a cheaper price.
Other than that, single and dual SIM versions are identical. It means that first of all you can expect a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution on the dual-SIM Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch QHD screen on the Galaxy S7 Edge Duos. Both phones also come with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable memory as well as 12-megapixel main and 5-megapixel front cameras. As for batteries, you will get a 3,000 mAh unit on the Galaxy S7 and a larger 3,600 mAh battery on the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Both devices run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and since these are GSM unlocked variants, they should play nice on AT&T, T-Mobile and other GSM networks.
There’s no way to tell how long these devices will be on sale, so if you are in the market for a new premium smartphone, now would be a good time to get yourself one. That is, if you don’t want to pay a fortune.
