Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge available for pre-orders from O2

Samsung has just presented its new flagship smartphones for 2016 at Mobile World Congress. And already, O2 is starting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. The best thing about the offer: All customers that pre-order also receive the virtual reality glasses Samsung Gear VR* – for free.
Pre-orders are possible online here for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and here for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge – as well as in one of more than a thousand O2 shops. Customers that pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge now will be one of the first in Germany to lay hands on the new super smartphones. They will be delivered to O2 customers three days before the official sales start in Germany. As soon as their parcels arrive, customers can register through this website for their Samsung Gear VR to also be delivered free of charge. Samsung’s virtual reality glasses have been on offer from O2 since 10 February and customers have for a few days been able to try it out in 600 stores.

Two sizes: Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

Reporters from O2 were there at the premier of the two new smartphones and present them in their detailed video. Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge use Android 6 (Marshmallow) as an operating system. Following the best assets of the Galaxy series, they also sport some ingenuous new features. Their elegant body is made of metal and glass and is similar to the classical design of its predecessor, only this time it comes in two sizes: The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be launched with a screen diagonal of 5.1 inches, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge boasts 5.5 inches. Both smartphones will be on sale at O2 in black, white or gold.
A particular highlight is the 12 megapixels camera on the back of the device, which takes pictures in 4K resolution. It is extremely luminous and reacts especially fast in semi-dark environments, for instance at parties. This is thanks to the new dual-pixel technology, which Samsung developed solely for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Another advantage: The camera doesn’t protrude, as is often the case with other models, only a flat protective ring surrounds it. A microSD slot is again included, through which storage of the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge can be extended by up to 200 gigabytes. Both smartphones can be charged wirelessly through an inductive charging station and are protected against dust and water, as proved by their IP68 certificate. The Samsung Galaxy S5 already made possible fantastic underwater videos in swimming pools – this is again the case. The super-strong batteries with 3,000 mAh for the Galaxy S7 and even 3,600 mAh for the edge version allow for extended run-times.
