Samsung officially announced that unlocked versions of both handsets are now available in the U.S. The Galaxy S6 is priced at $669.99, while the Galaxy S7 edge costs $769.99. They can be purchased from Samsung directly, or if you prefer you can order yours from Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Sam’s Club, and Target.
One of the other benefits of going with an unlocked handset is the lack of pre-installed apps from carriers, which is reason enough for some to go with an unlocked handset. The unlocked devices also support LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 29, and 30, which means the handsets support all four major wireless carriers.
Do you plan on picking up an unlocked Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, or did you already buy one from your carrier?
