Samsung made the blue coral Galaxy S7 Edge official at the beginning of this month following weeks of rumors and speculations.
However, the phone has only been seen in Asian countries of South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan. While there had been speculation that the blue coral Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will only be sold in Asia, it has emerged that the phone will actually be available globally. Apparently, AT&T is already accepting orders for the flagship and according to the latest reports, T-Mobile could also be in line to sell the phone in the U.S.
Carriers were dented a huge blow when Samsung Galaxy Note 7 failed to live up to its expectations. Given the popularity of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, it is no doubt that these two have seemingly confirmed that they will be selling the blue coral variant in the country.
According to a leaked image of T-Mobile’s internal database, there is an inventory entry that lists a “SAM G935T GS7 Edge 32G BLUE” device, confirming that the device is indeed coming. AT&T promises to start shipping the phone between today and Wednesday, November 16th, but there is still no clear confirmation of when T-Mobile is planning to start shipping this phone.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the smaller brother to the dead Galaxy Note 7. It looks just like the latter, but it is smaller in size at 5.5 inches and doesn’t have the unique S Pen as well as iris scanner on the front panel. Under the hood, the phone packs a Snapdragon 820 SoC alongside a 4GB RAM and as the inventory leak suggests, 32GB of inbuilt storage. The phone has a microSD card slot, so there is little to worry about if the default storage is small.
In terms of camera, you get a 12MP sensor on the back alongside a 5MP selfie sensor. Both have the same f/1.7 aperture, but it is the rear sensor that comes with OIS and dual-tone LED flash, among other features.
