Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will go live on February 21, the same day the company is scheduled to announce two new flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress, according to Dutch website Android World. 

The publication is also reporting consumers that pre-order either device between February 21 and March 10, the latter date being the day prior to when the S7 and S7 edge are reportedly scheduled to ship, will receive a complimentary Gear VR headset, currently valued at $139.99 CAD.

It’s unclear if this promotion will extended to Canada, and whether Samsung actually plans to carry it out.

    I probably won’t shell out the cash for this. But I’m pleased to see Samsung seeding VR. I cannot describe how much more excited I am about VR over wearables.

    Headline reads “Galaxy S7 preorders reportedly go live on February 27, free Gear VR included” Article clearly states “Galaxy S7 preorders reportedly go live on February 21, free Gear VR included”

      US gets everything. Everything. We Canadians are constantly left out in the cold.

    • levoila

      We got similar deals last year with the s6

  • Blair Davis

    Being able to buy phone outright and unlocked is important for me. Would love if samsung finally gave that option. I’d strongly consider this as my next device.

    I just love my new Nexus 6P, the S7 will be great I am sure, but I will have to wait a couple of years! By that time they will probably be at S10

  • AJ

    Can you please pick one date, 21st or 27th?

  • Roger

    so is it 21st or 27th?

  • Alain Lafond

    For sure you won’t see this promo in Canada… By the way, with leaked specs, who will buy this phone… As long as I won’t own my phone, I’ll never buy a Samsung phone again…
