Best Buy scores pink gold Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge US exclusivity

Well, that didn’t take long. Samsung globally launched the high-end Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones in four “standard” colors way back in March, then added pink gold (not rose gold) to the paint job selection just a month later, but only in Korea.

Today, after an excruciating, seemingly hopeless waiting period, US-based fans of pretty, stylish yet somewhat tacky gadgets are finally treated to a happy ending to their miserable saga. Starting August 28, Best Buy and only Best Buy will be stocking the swankiest GS7 and S7 Edge flavors stateside, selling the two unlocked and fully compatible with both GSM and CDMA networks, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon included*.

Remember, Samsung barely brought unlocked variants of the 5.1/5.5-inch premium phones in black, white, gold and silver to American shores officially a couple of months ago, so the pink gold model’s tardy expansion doesn’t come as such a big surprise if you think about it.

Pricing remains under wraps for the moment, but since all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge configurations are made equal on the inside, regardless of their outer coating, we expect BB to charge $620 and $750 respectively for these snazzy fuchsia-colored flagship Androids.

*CorrectionThe Pink Gold versions of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are only available locked to AT&T, Sprint and Verizon — ironically, not T-Mobile. Pocketnow regrets the error.
