Someone is selling this on Ebay, # 172155189703
I cannot find anything on google.
Wait for Ferrousbutt a.k.a. ironass. If anyone knows, he would.
I am touched by your faith in me Snakeyeskm but I cannot say for sure that this is either real or fake/clone without knowing if, in Download Mode, it displays the Knox Security flag. As we have seen from the S2, S3, S4, S5 and S6, clone/fake phones can flood the web even before the real things are launched and they can be excellent copies. My search only turned up one Polish site offering the G930F2... http://allegro.pl/samsung-galaxy-s7-g930f2-okazja-bcm-od-1zl-i6056626882.html
Already, as I mentioned, there are fake/clone S7's...
My advice is, CAVEAT EMPTOR... let the buyer beware!
What kind of fake would a fake S7 be?
Surely it would be obvious in seconds whether the phone is anything like an S7?
I have had posters on other threads who posted to say that they had not received the latest update to their phone's only to be told by me, after investigation, that they had been using a fake for 6 months or more. See...
Galaxy S5, Fake Clone or Genuine - Dummies Guide
Fake, clone, not genuine, Galaxy S4 phones
MADE IN KOREA...original or not?
Fake, clone, phones are a multi million $ business.
Looking at that video, the easiest way to tell is to take some full-res photos and see the image size in pixels.
There is also an app, free from the Play Store, Genuine Galaxy - Phone Info that is designed to help determine whether a Samsung Galaxy phone is a clone or not. Not always 100% accurate on newer models or carrier variants which is why I always rely on the Knox security flag.
Here is another fake phone video...
As I stated earlier, I cannot be certain from the photo from just a photo in post #1, if this is indeed a genuine S7 or not. Perhaps you could post a link to it and we can see if that sheds any more light on it.
Here's another example of Buyer Beware shared with us from our very esteemed AF member @mikedt:
Don't we all wish the Galaxy S7/Edge had a replaceable battery..................
