Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge Arrive in US

...

If you've been eyeing a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge but don't want a smartphone that's tied to a specific carrier, today is your lucky day.

Samsung on Thursday launched unlocked versions of both handsets in the US, which you can buy without getting locked into a two-year carrier contract. These unlocked versions will work on most GSM and CDMA networks, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. Plus, you won't have to worry about any preinstalled carrier bloatware mucking up your phone.

But you better have some deep pockets if you want one of these unlocked models, because they're not exactly cheap. The unlocked Galaxy S7 will set you back $669.99 while the unlocked S7 Edge is $100 more at $769.99. They're available for purchase now on Samsung.com, or through Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Sam's Club, and Target.com.

Rest assured that the unlocked versions offer the same design and features as the original Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge that launched earlier this year.

Both handsets earned "excellent" scores in PCMag's reviews. PCMag's Lead Mobile Analyst Sascha Segan said the Galaxy S7 delivers "the best Android smartphone performance in a relatively small package" while the S7 Edge — our Editors' Choice winner — "combines state-of-the-art components with a smart, gorgeous design and a big battery, making it a killer Android smartphone."

In a statement, Samsung's Electronics America President Tim Baxter acknowledged that US users have been asking for unlocked models. "At Samsung, we listen to our customers," he said. "The unlocked Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge offer more U.S. customers a way to join the Galaxy family."
