Just a few days before Samsung was to unveil its latest Galaxy S7 model at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), leaked photos that purportedly reveal the phone's pricing and features are doing the rounds. A website from Dubai called Dubizzle had the Galaxy S7 Edge listed on their website at AED 4500 (Approx. ₹84000) and Galaxy S7 for AED 4200 (Approx. ₹78000).
Recently, a dutch website Tweakers reported that Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is going to be priced at €799.99 (Approx. ₹53500) and Galaxy S7 is going to be priced at €699.99 (Approx. ₹61000) for 32 GB models. It is also rumoured that a Gear VR virtual reality headset might be included in the box.
Also, the Indonesian arm of Samsung accidentally leaked out a video giving out more details about features of the upcoming flagship series. The video suggests both Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 might be waterproof and would have wireless charging capabilities.
Earlier, a lot of renders were leaked of the phone by prolific blogger Evan Blass. The pictures showed the various colours, including the black, blue and gold. A report also said that the pre-orders will begin on 21 February. Samsung is also expected to announce Samsung Pay to the UK in their event.

Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 will be reportedly running on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, but their own Exynos processor can be thrown into the mix for some regions. The phone is rumoured to have a 12-megapixel camera at the back with BRITCELL technology. More details will be available after their event on 21 February just before MWC.
It is unclear that when these models will be launched in India. Recently, Samsung launched their premium mid-range phones Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A5 in India. The company is doing really well after topping the market share in smartphones last year in the country with a 26% contribution.
