If you’re worried you won’t have enough to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, we’ve got potentially good news for you. Samsung is reportedly planning to launch a phone upgrade program that will make it easier for buyers to get their hands on Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
Samsung Galaxy S7 phone upgrade program
This new rumour comes from Korean-speaking ET News. According to the report, Samsung is getting ready to introduce a new phone upgrade program that will works similar to Apple’s iPhone upgrade plan. It is said to launch in March, which is the same time the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to hit shelves.
According to the report, the program will initially be only available in South Korea, but we’re guessing that it will be available in other markets soon after.
In the UK, iPhone buyers can get store credit if they turn in their older iPhones or iDevices. This store credit can be used to get a discount on the Apple iPhone 6S or the Apple iPhone 6S Plus. In the US, iPhone buyers can opt to get their hands on a new iPhone for a monthly fee and by trading in their older iPhone. It still remains a mystery on how exactly Samsung’s phone upgrade will work, but it’s likely that it will offer options similar to the options offered by Apple’s upgrade program.
Of course, since we can’t verify if this information is accurate, take it with a pinch of salt.
According to past reports, the S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the S7 Edge will feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Its camera combo will consist of a new and larger 12-megapixel front-facing camera (rumoured to be more ideal for images capturing and video recording in low-light conditions) and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It will feature two different processors, depending on the market. The US and Chinese versions will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version (UK version) will feature the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Unlike its predecessor, it is said to feature a microSD card slot and have IP67-certification (dust and water proof). A USB Type-C connector and fingerprint scanner is expected to be on board.
