Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge prices have been slashed by nearly Rs 5,000 (~$75). The price cut is followed by the recent Galaxy Note7 unveiling in India. The drop means that the effective price for the Galaxy S7 comes down to Rs 43,400 while the S7 Edge would cost Rs 50,900. The price drop is noticeable on both Amazon.in and Flipkart.
It is almost confirmed that the price drop is official as some offline stores have also confirmed the new prices. The price drop is not something new with Samsung as we had seen huge discounts for Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge. However, this move caused a furore among the people who had already bought the devices early. What is laudable though is that Samsung kept the launch prices of the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge intact for the last six months, since its launch.
