The newly announced Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is expected to arrive next month in the Philippines, specifically the date said is March 19. With this expect another wave of Galaxy devices ready to be taken by your fingertips.
Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge
Retail prices are announced 34,990 and 39,990 respectively for the S7 and S7 Edge, so saving up from today to the launch date will be much easier. So with this, the only left to guess is the postpaid offering.
There are no details announced yet from the telcos, but here is our guess / forecast for the postpaid plans of the devices. Since we are currently using Globe, we will try to gues the plans according to our experience.
Free Gear VR and Wireless Charger
Last year when you purchase the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge the phones comes with a free wireless charger for a limited time offer. But now with the Galaxy S7 introduced with the new VR ecosystem, we believe Samsung will bundle both devices for a limited time offer. The Gear VR will be available for retail for Php4,990, so combined with the Php2,000 worth of the fast charget that’s already 7k worth of savings.
Loads of freebies
Globe is famous in providing tons of freebies, so expect the usual free Facebook, Viber and perhaps a connectivity lifestyle app plan in their MyLifestyle plan. Along with this their 3rd party partners like HOOQ, Spotify and NBA are sure to make tempting offers to make an overall beefy package. Above everything else, don’t forget the famous gadget care which is important for a brand new smartphone.
We’re hoping that this time the usual 5GB barrier will now be broken. With the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge so powerful, we believe that this will be data-heavy since new ecosystem like VR will play a crucial role in how S7 will lead the pack in the smartphone battle.
1 year retention bonus?
Well we hope this happens, we would like a retention plan scheme to be offered to 1 year or less remaining customers. Including ourselves, we think it’s more than a steal if Globe can offer this.
We guess the Galaxy S7 to be initially to be available around the Plan 999 with cashout and the Galaxy S7 Edge at Plan 1,299 with cashout. Of course, the cashout will be available in a deferred payment scheme with your credit card.
Anyways, all of these are just educated guess based on our experience. But if any are true in the list, we would be happy with our smile reaching our ears. Until then, let’s wait around March 19 so we can confirm everything. So for now, expect something wonderful upcoming in the #GlobeGalaxyS7 offerings.
