Samsung Galaxy S7 to be released February 21. See specs and pricing details


Its not official yet but insiders and big tech websites believe that Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S7 will be launched during Samsung’s Unpacked Event on February 21st,2016 which will take place at Mobile World Congress (MWC) which is an international tech event where mobile tech is showcased.

According to my sources, we should not expect a lot of design changes to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge following last year’s major changes but it is rumoured that Samsung is bringing back the microSD slot which is a major attraction to users. The camera is also expected tp have more support for low light photos and it looks like Samsung is back to using Qualcomm’s powerful processors.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be released on Marh 11, 2016 in the US and shortly after in Nigeria so start saving up. This date was given by popular tech leaker Evan Blass popular called evleaks. The battery of the S7 Edge is also expected to be larger than that of the S6 Edge by about 38 percent.

Samsung might also launch the S7, S7 Edge and S7 Edge+ all at the same time. This was suggested in a photo by @evleaks on Twitter showing the three phones in a single line. The screen is also rumoured to increase by 0.1 inches to 5.2 inches, a heartwarming but unsubstantiated rumor by an analyst in China suggests that Samsung could lower the price of its flagship by 10 percent to better take on its competitors.

It seems Samsung has decided to have its own version of the iPhone’s pressure sensitive 3D touch screen which is used on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The 3D Touch feature allows you access secondary menu items whenever you touch and hold the screen harder than normal. Other rumoured features include: Samsung’s version of Apple’s Live Photos, A retina scanner which is used to unlock the phone by scanning the eyes.
