The Galaxy S7 Edge is the current highlight of Samsung's smartphone lineup... and boy, don't they know it. The 32GB version of the phone goes for approximately $800 unlocked in the US, well above the non-Edge version of the S7 and considerably more expensive than more budget-minded flagships like the Nexus 6P or the Moto X. But that doesn't mean you're out of luck when it comes to deal hunting. Right now an eBay vendor is offering the international, unlocked, dual-SIM version of the S7 Edge for just $669.99 . Silver, gold, and black models are available.
Samsung's "Duos" dual-SIM phone variants are rarely sold in the US, since the feature isn't in much demand here, but it's reasonable to expect a premium for the feature - new models on eBay are selling for well over $750. Dual-SIM phones are popular in areas with low coverage where users often buy SIMs from multiple carriers, plus international travelers who use different SIMs for different countries. This particular model is version G935FD, which according to PhoneMore supports the following bands:
- Quad-Band 850/900/1800/1900
- GSM 850/900/1800/1900
- UMTS 850/900/1700/1900/2100, TD-SCDMA 1900/2000
- LTE Cat9 700/800/850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 (Bands 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,13,17,18,19,20,25,26,28)
- TD-LTE 1900/2300/2500/2600 (Bands 38,39,40,41)
Also note that the second SIM slot shares space with the MicroSD card slot, so it's impossible to use an expansion card and a second SIM at the same time.
