Quote from Prasad Gokhale, Vice President Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics Australia:
“We’re immensely proud to announce that pre-sales for the Galaxy S7 range have set a new record for Samsung in Australia.
More Galaxy S7 and S7 edge devices have been sold in a pre-sale period than ever before for a flagship Samsung smartphone launch in Australia.
We believe the amazing reception for the Galaxy S7 range in Australia is due to the way we have listened to consumers to deliver a device that can offer meaningful benefits to everyday lives. This includes features like an amazing camera, IP68 water resistance, fast-charging battery technology, and expandable SD card memory.
Australian enthusiasm for our mobile virtual reality platform, Gear VR, has also been a key driver in pre-sale demand.
In 2016, more Australians will experience virtual reality through Gear VR than ever before. It’s certainly a year that we think will open new frontiers for how Australians create, consume and interact with content through their smartphone.”
Pre-sales of the devices opened on February 26 and closed on March 10 2016, before wider availability from March 11. All Australians who pre-purchased a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge before 10 March 2016 in line with the T&Cs will receive a Gear VR (virtual reality) headset to use with their new device.
