Samsung Galaxy S7 hits Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile USA
Some exciting news for Galaxy S7 fans: the new Samsung flagship will be arriving on Boost Mobile on March 11 and Virgin Mobile USA on March 18. The device will be available in any color as long as it’s black, and the formal price tag is $649.99. The smartphone will work on no-contract plans on the network, which means this is a great option for someone looking to maintain network flexibility. Also great for people with commitment issues.
The Galaxy S7 is one of this year’s most anticipated smartphones. Its reveal last month at the Mobile World Congress turned a lot of heads, and fans of the S-line were elated to learn that some very missed features that were absent in the S6 would be returning on the S7. These included a microSD slot and some very impressive water-resistance (Samsung claims the device can survive completely submerged under five feet of water for up to thirty minutes, meaning showering with the device isn’t a risk at all.) The S7 comes with some Samsung exclusives like Samsung Pay, and its internal memory is 32GB, expandable to an additional 200GB.
If you switch to Boost Mobile from T-Mobile, AT&T, or Verizon,the company will hook you up with a pretty sweet family plan that supports 10GB of data for two lines, only $60 per month. Virgin Mobile is also putting up some pretty cool offers to attempt to woo users from other carriers. They’re touting their three “unlimited” plans with 4GB of high speed data and unlimited data at lower speeds. Streaming music through a variety of apps like Pandora, iHeartRadio, Slacker, 8tracks, and Milk Music won’t count toward your monthly data on these plans.
