There have been rumors that Samsung plans to launch Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in January 2016. Samsung’s upcoming flagship is said to come in three models that are expected to feature different screen sizes. The first variant will sport a 5.2 inch screen, a second model’s screen will stand at 5.8 inches and for the third it is speculated to be an Edge variant. Here is a few details on the Galaxy S7 released date, specifications and price.
Some rumors also suggest that the MicroSD functionality will be reinstated in the Galaxy S7.
Sources from SamMobile suggest that among the accessories set to be released with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge include a keyboard cover. The S7 and S7 Edge are expected to come with a Keyboard Cover, S View Cover, Clear View Cover and Glitter Cover. A physical keyboard could mean competition to the BlackBerry range.
A premium Samsung Galaxy S7
Rumors surfaced that a premium edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 would be launched exclusively to South Korea. According to the information, the device will be equipped with a 14-core Mali T880 GPU used on the Exynos 8890 chip different from the 12-core version that will be featured on the Galaxy S7.
Force Touch Technology on Galaxy S7
Back in April 2014, Samsung filed a patent in April 2014 which led to speculations the company could be working on their own 3D touch technology. Though speculation has never been confirmed, a 3D touch technology may seemingly appear on the Galaxy S7. Galaxy S4’s Air View feature which gave users more options menus a simple hand hover on the screen, is similar trial of the technology.
Galaxy S7 powered by Exynos 8890 chip
Reports show that Samsung is set to use three chip variants for the upcoming S7. For the Galaxy S7 in India, sources suggest that it will run on the Exynos 7422 chip, US and China are set up for Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 whereas the Exynos 8890 has been reserved for Europe, Korea, and Japan.
Galaxy S7 display
Speculations claim that these new variants will be complemented by a 4K screen resolution which is one of the latest adopted technologies by many platforms. Samsung’s S6 happens to feature a 2560 x 1440 pixels screen resolution which is larger than 4K.
In addition to this, Samsung is said to be developing a new screen protection technology known as Turtle Glass moving from Corning’s Gorilla Glass.
Android Marshmallow is another development expected to be seen on Samsung’s upcoming flagships.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Release Date
Galaxy S7 is expected to be released at the MWC 2016; this is considering that the Galaxy S5 was released at MWC 2014 and thereafter at the MWC 2015 Samsung launched Galaxy 2015.
Galaxy S7 Price
If specifications such as the 4K display, set to be featured on the Galaxy S7 are anything to go by, the price should be a tiny bit high than its predecessor.
