With Samsung set to launch its new Galaxy flagship handset – Galaxy S7 - worldwide on March 11, 2016, US wireless carrier AT&T Mobility’s wholly-owned subsidiary Cricket Wireless has announced that it will start selling the new Galaxy handset next week.

According to a Cricket Wireless press release, the Galaxy S7 handset will be available on the company’s official website, as well as its retail stores across the US, from March 18, 2016.

Sharing details about the price of the new Galaxy S7 handset, Cricket Wireless said in its press release that the cost of the 32GB model of the handset will be $650. Customers who purchase the new Galaxy handset before April 1, 2016, will -- as a limited-period promotional offer -- also get Samsung’s $100 Gear VR headset for free, together with a six-game package which reportedly costs nearly $50.

According to Cricket Wireless, the promotional offer announced by Samsung for the Galaxy S7 handset will run only till stocks last.

Both the new Galaxy S7 models were unveiled by Samsung at the Mobile World Congress trade show held in Barcelona, Spain, in February.
