Leaks are coming fast and furious about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Today we have a couple of tidbits of information to pass along that you may find interesting. First and foremost, we might be getting a hint into a major selling point for the new flagships from Korea’s largest business.
AndroidWorld.nl, a Dutch Android site, is reporting that when you purchase a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, you’ll also receive a free Samsung Gear VR. This offer will apply to those who pre-order the phone between February 21 and March 10. You will then have to register your purchase on Samsung’s website.
This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen Samsung throw out some pretty crazy incentives to get people into its ecosystem. It was very generous in its gifts to those who signed up with Samsung Pay. Packages ranged from a fast wireless charger valued at $50 to a $200 e-coupon you could use on Samsung’s website to purchase accessories.
The Gear VR currently retails for $99.99.
The other bit of information stated in the AndroidWorld article would seem to confirm the pre-order date of the S7 and S7 Edge. In our What We Know post about the Galaxy S7, we’ve written that the phones would be announced on February 21, 2016. This date is one day before Mobile World Congress starts in Barcelona. Samsung will reportedly then hold several events around the world on February 22 to show off the new devices, including one in New York City.
