Samsung’s next Android smartphone, reportedly called the Galaxy S7, will apparently be released in the next two months.
Reuters report that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S7 in two screen sizes come February.
Ivan Luchkov, a Ukrainian tech blogger, who has previously leaked reliable dates for other Samsung releases has corroborated the timings.
He also claimed Samsung may hold an ‘unpacked event’ on February 20th in Barcelona.
A 5.2-inch Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge are being developed and it’s also claimed there are plans to produce 3.3 million smaller S7’s and 1.6 million of the larger model.
Right now these are just rumours, so take all this with a pinch of salt.
However, it’s suggested the S7 will have a similar design to the current S6.
A microSD card slot may be built into the phone, which should please those disappointed by its absence in previous models. Other rumoured features include a pressure-sensitive screen and possibly an iris scanner.
All in all, it sounds like the next generation of Samsung smartphone is going to be pretty awesome.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
