Update: We now have an official date – the phone will arrive to T-Mobile on November 18th.
We know that the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge model is on its way, after Samsung recently announced that the new variant would receive a US release, and it seems that T-Mobile will be stocking the phone when it launches in the country. A leaked image of T-Mobile’s product database reveals a new handset listed at the “SAM G935T GS7 Edge 32G BLUE”.
Unfortunately, neither T-Mobile nor Samsung have made an official announcement about when we can expect this phone to begin appearing on shelves in the US. Other than the color change, there aren’t any hardware differences with between the Blue Coral and existing Galaxy S7 edge models. Samsung decided to bring the new color option to the S7 after introducing and then having to recall Blue Coral Galaxy Note 7 handsets.
While we’re on the subject of Samsung releases, we can also spot reference to the “SAM R765T GEAR S3 FRONTIER BLK” on the product database. The Gear S3 is expected to be released in the US come November 18th on the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon networks.
Samsung has confirmed that the phone will be coming to the US though a number of carriers, and AT&T has already begun taking pre-orders for the phone, so a launch doesn’t seem to be too far away now. AT&T’s website states that the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge will begin shipping out between November 15th and 17th. We haven’t heard anything from Verizon or Sprint on the phone yet, although a leaked photo suggests that the handset is coming to Verizon.
The Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge is already on sale in Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. Will you be picking one up when it arrives in the US?
