Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Launch Date In Confusion After Alleged Unpacked 2016 Date


Samsung's Galaxy S7 has started to see leaks and new information surface at an increasingly fast pace over the past couple of days. We've seen rumors ranging from its technical specifications, dimensions, colors and launch date pop up, which apart from giving us a good picture of what to expect, also end up muddling things a little bit. After we told you earlier that the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge might be seeing an early launch date, some more information has surfaced which suggests that Samsung might be sticking to its current schedule.

Samsung To Launch The Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge At The Sidelines Of MWC In Barcelona

Earlier today, some information surfaced which claimed that Samsung has already started work on developing the firmware for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. In addition to somewhat confirming the existing of an edge variant for the device, it also managed to point out the fact that Samsung is exactly a month ahead of schedule in development terms when compared to the progress on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

However, now serial tipster Ricciolo claims to have some new information about the Galaxy S7's launch date in a twitter post. According to him, there's no change of plans at Samsung for the Galaxy S7's launch, with the company to still launch the device at the cohorts of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, set to take place from February 22nd to February 25th.

So as of now, nothing can be said with surety about Samsung's flagship smartphone launch plans. There's no reason for the Korean manufacturer to launch the Galaxy S7 earlier next year either, as there shouldn't be any direct competitors that it should be looking to get ahead of through an expedited launch. The Galaxy S7 is turning out to be quite an impressive device so far however if the current information about the device's specifications and features is to be believed.

Not only will the device be launching with both the Exynos 8890 and the Snapdragon 820, but the Galaxy S7 will also be featuring a rear camera with resolution 20MP, coupled with Samsung's proprietary ISOCELL and RAW image support. This should account for some high quality photography on the device, which coupled with expanded multimedia capabilities should make the Galaxy S7 one good device indeed. There's no word on the device's design so far, but that should change in the near future. Stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
