Samsung To Surprise Users? Will They Launch The Samsung Galaxy S7 This February?

Samsung has been Apple’s biggest competitor in the smartphone and tablet industry. With everyone watching their every single move, people are wondering when Samsung would be launching their next big product.

Just like Apple, Samsung follows launching traditions. For Apple, it would be on the fourth quarter of every year. With Samsung, they host this event every February. The event, called Samsung’s Unpacked, was believed to happen on Feb. 20 or Feb. 21. There is a big possibility that this is where Samsung will release the much anticipated Samsung series for 2016.

According to Android Headlines, popular Twitter account @evleaks has posted a teaser image about the event. There were two photos of this cube. The first photo has a headline “#TheNextGalaxy” while the other one has a “Feb. 21, 2016” date on it. There is no confirmation yet on whether these are authentic photos, but the account has been known for releasing big leaks on these tech giants for some years now. Other rumors also support the claim that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge would both be launched during that date.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge have been praised for its innovative design and hardware power. According to Gottabemobile, there are features that would be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is reported to have a 5.1-inch dimension with a 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will be 5.5 inches. With a 4GB of RAM, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will also have an added boost of 8-Core Qualcomm 820 Processor.

There are also the storage options of 32 GB and 64GB. However, the specs for adding a micro-SD has not been confirmed yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 will also have a 12.3 Megapixel Rear Camera. Though this is not on par with Sony’s latest offerings, this is still above average. Still, it would have other features like low light capabilities. One other report indicated that the camera will not bulge on the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and it will not appear like the previous “S6 hump.”

Both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge would both have Wireless Fast Charging and 3,000 mAh Fast Charging battery. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will have a 3,600 mAh battery.

As for the OS, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will have the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with TouchWiz. There will also be Fingerprint and Iris Eye Scanner for improved security.

Samsung S7 Series Design

Twitter user @evleaks has also provided information on the possible Samsung Galaxy S7 design. According to VentureBeat, it will not be too different from the Samsung Galaxy S6 series.

Though previous reports suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge would have a 5.7-inch feature, it was suggested that it would be too big to pair with the 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship model.

There were reports suggesting the new Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a curved design. Though speculations point to having similarities with the LG Flex, it was rumored to be the opposite. Samsung Galaxy S7 series might have a convex curve design where the screen display might be highlighted.

Samsung has been trying curve designs from some time now. The Edge versions have been one proof that the company is actually trying out different ways to improve screen and navigation features.

So far, there are still no confirmation on whether the new design would be an entirely new concave one.
