Samsung might launch two versions of the Galaxy S7 in February

1 min read

Most of the rumors we’ve been hearing about the Galaxy S7 claim the smartphone will be released shortly after next year’s Mobile World Congress ends on February 25th, but Reuters is reporting that the company might actually launch the Galaxy S7 at an Unpacked event a couple of days before the trade show. The report is based on the claims of a Ukrainian tech blogger by the name of Ivan Luchkov, who has been accurate in the past, and also claims that the company will launch a 5.2-inch Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge at the same time. Separate rumors claim that the design of these smartphones won’t differ much from their predecessors, as Samsung is choosing to focus more on hardware and software improvements rather than design.

Samsung’s next flagship Android smartphone — tentatively referred to as the Galaxy S7 — will reportedly arrive in a few months. According to a report from Reuters, the Korean electronics giant will launch the Galaxy S7 in two screen sizes in February. Ukrainian tech blogger Ivan Luchkov, who leaked the date for Samsung’s Unpacked 2014 event for the Galaxy S5, corroborates that timing and claims Samsung may hold an Unpacked event on Feb. 20 in Barcelona, days before Mobile World Congress. A 5.2-inch Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge are reportedly in the cards. The report claims Samsung is planning to produce 3.3 million of the smaller S7 and 1.6 million of the larger curved model. Samsung’s current Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have 5.1-inch screens. The company also sells the Galaxy S6 Edge+, a larger smartphone with a 5.7-inch screen with curved edges along the screen. Though we won’t know for sure until Samsung makes it official on stage, the latest rumors suggest the S7 will sport a similar design to the current S6. The smartphone may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and include a USB Type-C port. It may also have microSD card slot as well, which would mark the return of a much-desired feature. Other rumored features include a pressure-sensitive screen (similar to the iPhone 6S’s 3D Touch) and possibly an iris scanner. And for everyone’s sake, we sincerely hope the rumor on a TouchWiz redesign is true.
