You might be able to order the Galaxy S7 sooner than you thought

The Galaxy S7 leaks bonanza shows no signs of slowing down. After reports a few days ago said the phones will be available in stores on March 11th, a new rumor seems to corroborate it and reveal even more details about the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge’s release.

DON’T MISS: New Galaxy S7 images leak along with the best news we’ve seen so far

Dutch tech blog Android World learned from multiple sources that preorders for the handsets will start on February 21st, which is the very same day the phones will be announced in Barcelona, Spain. The prices for the handsets have not been divulged yet, but an extensive preview of the new phones suggested that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will have the same prices as their predecessors.

The site adds that the handsets will indeed launch on March 11th and that every person who preorders the handset from February 21st to March 11th will receive a free Gear VR headset, which is a fantastic deal. To get the glasses, users will apparently need to pre-register with Samsung through a special page.

Samsung already teased that its Galaxy S7 event will have some VR in it, so a promotion like this would make sense.

The phones will reportedly be available in three colors in the Netherlands, but both the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge will only be available in 32GB versions. That’s not necessarily a problem, considering that Samsung is rumored to be bringing microSD support back to the Galaxy S line after having removed it last year.
