Samsung sets pre-order records with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge


Samsung has revealed pre-orders for its highly anticipated Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones ahead of their March 11 launch date are the highest ever for a Samsung device.

Pre-orders kicked off last week with plans revealed from Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile.

Tech Guide understands orders for the S7 and S7 Edge are more then double the pre-orders Samsung received last year for the S6 and S6 Edge.

One thing that has helped increase pre-order sales was the offer of a bonus Gear VR headset for every customer who reserved their device.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge – recently unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona – have a 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch screen respectively.


Under the hood the processor is 30 per cent faster than last year’s models and the camera has also seen a significant improvement in terms of quality and the speed of the auto focus.

Features that weren’t included with the S6 and S6 Edge – expandable microSD card memory slot and waterproof construction – are now back aboard Samsung’s latest devices.


Tech Guide has already had a hands-on look at the S7 and S7 Edge in Barcelona.

Tech Guide will publish complete reviews of the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge on March 9.
