I’m beginning to think that Samsung‘s latest flagship might just be the worst kept secret in smartphone history. Case in point, somebody in Dubai has gotten their hands on aÂ Samsung Galaxy S7 edge in black and is selling itÂ for the tidy sum ofÂ 4500 AED (that equates to aboutÂ $1100 USD). The listing onÂ Dubizzle suggests that the device came from the US and emphasizes that you can get it before the device is announced. Of course, this might just be an elaborate hoax, but you can’t deny that the pictures that accompany their listing are of a genuine Galaxy S7 edge (though it’s impossible to tell whether it’s a test unit or not just looking at the device).
What is interesting about the photos is that we get a look at the contents below the phone. What we see is a variety of chargers, but no headphones – this does give credence to the theory that this might not be a retail-ready unit, but I’m sure there’s many a Samsung fan willing to risk it to get their hands on one of these a little early.
As fate would have it though, the listing has now been taken down, whether because it was actually a hoax, or Samsung has tracked down the culprit. Either way, you’re fresh out of luck. For now.
