It's Available Here - in Bahrain / Arabian Gulf - (( $810-850 ))
As it turns out, I will not settle for the gold platinum, as I really want black. I could change my mind any time, as the carrier agent told me. They have no definite information when supplies for the black version will be ready. Sigh. So, I am willing to wait, than settle for something that would be regretting as I may even use it for the next two years or so.
The overwhelming demands from pre-orders has created shortages, and some countries have moved their launch dates as much as a month.
Otterbox is offering a limited free Alpha Glass front screen protector if I would be buying a Commuter or Symmetry case. Tempting, however reviews for the glass protector has been bad, with "rainbow effects" and dust creeping from the middle sides as the only adhesive areas are at the top and bottom to hold onto the device's front glass. Just fair warning to fellow buyers.
Love the protection both Otterbox cases offer though, with very deep front lips to prevent the front glass hitting a flat ground. Back fully protected.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2016USB type C is faster.Type-C is only the connector standard, it has nothing to do with the speed.
Type-C was introduced with USB 3.0, but still there exist devices that only support USB 2.0 with the Type-C connector (for example the Nexus 5x and 6p).

AnonD-430264, 17 Aug 2016That's the funny thing about the complaint of a glass back is: Yes, the glass can withstand si... moreBy simple drop, you mean 1m or 3ft, right?
By simple drop, you mean it has to perfectly drop flat on that back cover, not on the corner glass, right?
By simple drop, you mean it shouldn't flip to the exposed front, as Samsung's free clear back will not protect those front corners, right?
People whose phone's glass cracked after a simple drop were just unlucky, and have the burden to pay half the cost of the smartphone for it to be fixed. It won't happen the next time, for sure.
For sure, I'm not in the action of construction workers... That's why I don't need to wear a hardhat, nor safety boots, nor safety harnesses while on construction sites... Nothing's going to happen.

Anonymous, 17 Aug 2016Welcome to the world of "fragile" glass phone hypocrite.That's the funny thing about the complaint of a glass back is: Yes, the glass can withstand simple drops. It's not like dropping a drinking glass on the floor.
They have heavy duty cases available for the Note 5, pretty sure they are going to have them for the 7. Even if dude is an architect, he doesn't get in the action like the construction workers do. What's the big deal?
I happen to think the glass back is sexy, that's why I have a crystal clear case that doesn't hide any phone features, with corner shock absorbers.
No radio? I don't understand Samsung's choice not to have radio in some models. It's useful and costs almost nothing...
N7 still has till slept to launch. But blue color has been colonised. Why it's high time to come out clean!

N, 17 Aug 2016I would really want to just get a clear cover, or just a normal cases, but those corners are w... moreNote 7 plastic cover has protection on the four corners so no need to worry.
A quick search on Google image Note 7 clear view cover will show you.
The problem is, it doesn't have always on display.
