Yes, you heard that right. Someone in Dubai is selling the much-awaited galaxy s7 as well as the upcoming LG G5 before they are officially introduced to the smartphone world. Not only that, the user who listed these smartphones has also put the galaxy s7 edge for sale. These are not the dummy units or the Chinese models. The phones have been shown with their original packing, accessories as well as valid IMEI numbers.
It is unclear how the user who listed these smartphones got access to them but these seem to be the review unit that the manufacturing company share with certain personals for testing as well as other purposes.
Good luck laying your hands on one before the handsets officially release. The seller has made these available only in Dubai and he is asking rather a steep price for the units. The LG G5 is commanding a price tag of $680. That’s reasonable.
But the galaxy s7 is available for $1140. The s7 edge is even higher at $1225. The listing pictures show us that all the accessories of the galaxy s7 and s7 edge come in white. The charger, USB cable and the headphones are all white. Even the black handsets have the white accessories making them look unattractive when using with the smartphone.
The box also contains an OTG cable that can be used to plug in a USB thumb drive and access the contents in them on the phone. It is not yet clear why would Samsung include such a cable.
The posting that was made available on a classifieds website in Dubai called as dubizzle is no longer available. I am guessing Samsung’s legal team has something to do with it.
