Samsung announced the pink gold (or as I like to call it “shiny pink”) version of the Galaxy S7 back in April, but that was only for international models. Now, the pink gold version of the phone is finally coming to the US. It will be exclusive to Best Buy, though.
This phone will be identical to the other US GS7 variants except for the color. That means you’re looking at a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with a microSD card. The phone is supposed to go on sale August 28th as an unlocked device. That means it will work on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon in the US. Pricing should be the same as the other unlocked colors, so a little over $600 and $700 for the GS7 and GS7 Edge, respectively. The specifics are somewhat fuzzy at the moment, though.
Best Buy’s website appears to list carrier versions of the pink gold phone too. In fact, the AT&T version is showing as available for purchase today. The Edge variants of these phones on the Best Buy site have a free Gear Fit2 included. The unlocked phone should come with a $150 gift card.
Update 1: 2016/08/25 12:03pm PDT
We reached out to Samsung to see what was going on with the carrier listings on the Best Buy website. Apparently, reports of an unlocked version of this phone were greatly exaggerated. It will only be available on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon as carrier-branded devices via Best Buy. There is no unlocked version.
