After launching its latest flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2016, Samsung is set to release the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge through Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

Following the introduction of the devices, fans and critics were impressed with the way the new smartphones followed last year's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to build its foundation.

However, Samsung did play up their features by incorporating a 5.1-inch display in the Galaxy S7 and coming up with a larger 5.5-inch screen for the S7 edge. As a result, consumers can easily use the devices’ updated Apps Edge applications easier. The new screen has also been enhanced for the wider dual-edge curved display.

Although the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge take on a design similar to its predecessors when it comes to its glass and metal components, Samsung integrated enough new features to encourage Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners to make an upgrade as much as the consumers seeking for the newest flagship Android devices with the latest high-quality specifications and features.

A number of the most remarkable features of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge include 2,560 x 1,440 Quad HD displays, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, liquid cooling technology, microSD expansion slot as well as water- and dust-resistant IP68.

Major mobile carriers, particularly Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, have already announced that they will be offering the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to their customers. With preorders, Samsung currently offers a free Gear VR headset (worth $100) and six virtual reality games (worth ($50) when purchasing the smartphones between Feb. 23 and March 18.

For Verizon, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will be made available to customers who preorder as well as in stores on March 11. The Galaxy S7 (32GB) can be purchased for $28 per month for 24 months, ($672 full retail price) while the Galaxy S7 edge (32GB) will be available for $33 per month for 24 months, ($792 full retail price).

AT&T has also opened preorders for the said devices with which customers will be able to get their hands on their device on Mar. 11; both smartphones will also be made available in the carrier’s retail stores on such date.

The Galaxy S7 (32GB) begins at $23.17 per month, ($695 full retail price) and the Galaxy S7 edge (32GB) begins at $26.50 per month, ($795 full retail price).

Similarly, T-Mobile is set to release Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones on Mar. 11 and will play up the deal by offering a one year subscription to Netflix, free of charge. The carrier will offer the Galaxy S7 (32GB) at $27.92 for 23 months plus $27.83 for the 24th month, ($669.99 full retail price) while the Galaxy S7 edge (32GB) comes at $32.50 for 23 months plus $32.49 for the 24th month, ($779.99 full retail price).

Finally, Sprint has followed the other carriers in releasing the said devices on Mar. 11. It has recently carried out its Galaxy Forever upgrade plan that enables customers to make an upgrade to the newest Galaxy smartphone after paying for 12 months, which begin at $25.99 per month for 24 months for the Samsung Galaxy S7 (32GB) and $30.50 per month for 24 months for the Galaxy S7 edge (32GB).
