You can already buy the Galaxy S7, S7 edge, LG G5 in Dubai
The latest handsets from Samsung and LG are already on sale in Dubai.
The Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, and the LG G5 — which won’t get their official unveilings until February 21 — can be purchased on Dubizzle, the Craigslist of Dubai.
All of the G5 handsets that were listed appear to have been snapped up now, but you can still get the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. According to the seller, these handsets were imported from the U.S., and they’re brand new in perfect condition.
The Galaxy S7 is priced at 4,200 AED (about $1,144), while the Galaxy S7 edge is priced at 4,500 AED (about $1,225).
We’ve already seen the Galaxy S7 handsets a number of times, so these photos don’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. The box doesn’t look like a retail box, though — it appears too flimsy for that — so this could be a prototype or test unit.
The images below confirm the G5’s all-new design in the flesh for the first time. Just as expected, it sports a more premium form factor made mostly out of metal, a dual rear-facing camera, and a fingerprint scanner.
I have to say the G5 doesn’t look quite as pretty as I was expecting, but these photos probably aren’t doing it justice. The Galaxy S7 edge looks pretty awful, too — and we already know how good-looking that’s going to be thanks to its predecessor.
If you don’t fancy buying these devices on Dubbizle, they should be available in early March.
