Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge launched in Malaysia. Special appearance by Lee Kwang-soo from ‘Running Man’

Just this morning, Samsung Malaysia launches their latest flagship device, the Galaxy S7 Edge at KLCC. Apparently, the company is only bringing in the Edge version, leaving the Galaxy S7 out of the Malaysian shelves.

“We believe in a world that is brighter, sharper, more convenient, and more fun. We strive to deliver on that vision with the Galaxy S7 edge by marrying elegant design with functionality and providing a seamless mobile experience. We empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life and will continue to push the frontier of what’s possible,” said Lee Jui Siang, Vice President of Mobile and IT Business Unit, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Here’s a recap of the specs for Galaxy S7 Edge in case you are not aware:
