Samsung has paid attention while crafting the retail boxes of the Galaxy S7 duo, as the devices ship in smart black cardboard boxes, which have a fabric-like feel to them. The box carrying the Galaxy S7 edge is bigger than the one carrying the S7, due to difference in screen sizes. Since luxury translates to bling for a lot of people, the front of the boxes feature the device names etched in glitzy shades of silver and blue. The boxes can be opened by lifting off the magnetic flap cover.


Apart from the midnight-blue insides of the box, you’ll see the smartphones resting on top of black plastic trays when you open the boxes. The box contents remain the same for both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.


You get all the necessary documentation secure in thin black cardboard packaging…and with it, a SIM ejection tool. Beneath the documentation, you get a 2-pin 2A wall charger with Adaptive Fast Charging tech, a USB cable, a USB OTG adapter and a small plastic box carrying a pair of in-ear headphones, with spare ear-buds.
