Alongside Samsung’s Sunday release of its new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge devices, U.S. wireless carrier Sprint unveiled its new “Galaxy Forever” Android device lease program.
The program launch marks the carrier’s extension of its “iPhone Forever” smartphone lease program, which was rolled out in August. Under that program, iPhone users pay a monthly lease fee for their device and can upgrade anytime a new iPhone is released.
On the new Galaxy Forever program, Sprint customers can obtain a new Galaxy S7 or S7 edge for $25.99 per month for 24 months or $30.50 per month for 24 months, respectively. Galaxy Forever customers have the option to upgrade to the latest Galaxy smartphone any time after making 12 payments on their Sprint Lease.
“We’re inviting consumers to join the millions of customers who have switched to Sprint with an offer that lets everyone get their hands on each new generation of Samsung Galaxy smartphones from Sprint every year,” Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said. “With Galaxy Forever, our customers can easily swap out their new GS7 or GS7 edge for the next generation after just 12 payments of less than $26 per month – that is less than a dollar a day.”
Sprint is just one of four carriers who will open preorders for the new S7 and S7 edge starting tomorrow.
The devices will become available in stores on March 11, Sprint said.
