Nick Hystaad Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

After the grand launch to the media and VIPs yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge goes for sale officially in store and online today. Samsung’s roadshow booth at the KLCC concourse accommodated over 1,000 walk-in customers in a staggered format. Earlier yesterday, the 3,000 customers who pre-ordered, picked up their orders from various locations across the country.

Fans arrived in the wee hours of the morning at KLCC to catch early-bird deals. The first lucky 2,000 customers who purchase the Galaxy S7 edge receive a free Gear VR headset. Samsung also offers a trade-up promotion for existing S series owners.

First in line this morning was Norwegian backpacker Nick Hystaad, who started queuing at 4AM. The 24-year old traveler has been globe-trotting across five countries including India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia. He’s currently in his fifth week of travel, with a overall three-month stint.

According to Hystaad, he first heard about the Galaxy S7 edge in Vietnam, when he visited a Samsung store there. He found out about the local launch here, and decided to upgrade from his Galaxy S5. Black Onyx was his choice of colour for his spanking new Galaxy phone.
