Samsung recently announced their new flagship devices – the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge – over at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, unless you were there, you couldn’t see or touch the devices.
Samsung Malaysia Electronics decided that they would transport us there in an exclusive event. They pulled out all the stops, showing off their Gear VR technology as well as the new crisp screens of their flagship Galaxy S7 edge. Using their latest Gear 360, the Samsung team transported those present to Barcelona. They brought the sights and sounds of heading to the MWC exhibition.
The only downside to the event – no hands on.
That aside, let’s get down to the serious part.
Malaysia Will Be Getting Only the Galaxy S7 Edge
According to Samsung officials, the Malaysian market will not be getting the vanilla version of the Galaxy S7. Instead, Malaysia will be getting only the larger Galaxy S7 edge. The reason behind this, according to Samsung, is to provide the Malaysian consumer with the best experience when it comes to their ecosystem.
However, it looks like the increasing demand from Malaysian consumers for larger screens is winning out. But, rest assured, it’s not as big as it looks.
Galaxy S7 Edge Pre-Orders Start on 7 March with a very special offer
Samsung is looking to launch the S7 edge with a bang. For the first time, Samsung will be allowing consumers to pre-order beginning 7th March; that’s next Monday!
