The Galaxy A7 (2016) won’t be available in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg

The Galaxy A3 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2016), and Galaxy A7 (2016) were made official today as the latest mid-range smartphones in Samsung ever-expanding Galaxy lineup. The company didn’t tell us when the phones will be made available outside China; Samsung Benelux was kind enough to let us know the pricing of two of the three handsets, and it has also revealed another interesting titbit.

It turns out that the Galaxy A7 (2016) will not be made available in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, and Samsung isn’t telling us why. The original Galaxy A7 had a limited launch as well, but for the new A7 Samsung only seems to be excluding the Benelux region as firmware for most other regions are under development. It’s possible Samsung doesn’t want sales of the Galaxy S6 edge+ to be affected, but we can’t know for sure why these three countries will not be seeing the most impressive of the new Galaxy A trio.

Why does Sammy wants to force the edge crap on us? The only non-edge phone bigger than the S6 is still the aging Note 4. And the S6+ isn’t available in 64GB as well. Well, they make it real easy to try another manufacturer.

And then they’re wondering why they’re losing market share every year…
I think this is why the Note 4 isn’t getting 5.1.1 in LUX (Luxembourg and Belgium).

They’ve just given up.

What are you talking about? My Note 4 is running 5.1.1 Proximus build. As for the first comment, yeah, come on, what a good treatment the Benelux is getting!! I have no hopes for a Note 6.

The Lux-version is the unlocked (no carrier) version sold in Luxembourg and Belgium. I have the Lux-version and still haven’t received anything.

Oh well, my Note 4 is a SFR (France) version, but i flashed the Proximus rom on it. SFR was also very late with the 5.1.1 update 🙂

I thought Samsung was losing money— then they go restricting markets.
The deadhead in charge of sammy distribution wants sacking- real quick.
