Samsung Unpacked 2016 set for February 21st, 2016; Samsung Galaxy S7 to be unveiled?
Hoping that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released earlier than usual? According to a tweet from tipster @Ricciolo1, the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event will take place on February 21st in Barcelona. Traditionally, Samsung unveils its new flagship Android phone at the event. Additionally, Samsung Unpacked usually takes place the day before the annual Mobile World Conference kicks off, and next year won't be an exception. MWC 2016 will take place in Barcelona from February 22nd through February 25th.

There has been talk about Samsung unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S7 in January. According to the rumor, Samsung had finished designing the new model in September, and would release a premium version of the phone using an Exynos SoC. A cheaper variant of the phone would be powered by a Qualcomm or MediaTek chipset.

Last month, a report stated that the Samsung Galaxy S7 would be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC in the U.S. and China. Elsewhere, the new Exynos 8890 will be found under the hood. We could see both a 5.2-inch and 5.8-inch version of the Galaxy S7, with 3GB and 4GB of RAM inside, respectively.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 could be unveiled on February 21st at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event

Can PA post the following ASAP so I can decide whether or not to forget about Samsung forever ???
Will samsung delete the following?
- Non-removable battery
- No Micro SD
- Fragile glass construction

If Samsung removes all 3 that CRIPPLE the S6, I will happily buy the S7 to replace my S5.

All metal body, Stereo speakers, IP68, Bigger Sensor with 2 micron pixel size, Fastest UI with software marvel.

All these make it extend its market leader position.

Stop trolling Samsung phones. They make other phones the way you want them. Go look at them. The S and Note are no longer using legacy options.

The fact you keep posting this, shows just how ignorant you really are. I guess ignorance must be bliss as you're just as ignorant as ifans.

It will probably sell better once the GS7 comes out. Just like the iPhone 6 is supposedly carrying the 6s right now.

I hope that the glass on the back "if any" would get a texture or something that no fingerprints could stick on it. I bought the white GS6 Edge, just because the white color is the only color that doesn't show the fingerprints, but I love to have other colors as well, if Samsung gets it right.

I can't believe it's almost been a year already. I think this is the longest I ever had a phone as my daily driver since I became addicted to smartphones. All hail the GS6!

The previous king was th Xperia Z3 I had from launch until the GS6 launch. And if I pass on the GS7 like I intend to, I might even keep the GS6 as my daily driver for 2 years which would be blasphemy. Of course I have a Nexus 6p coming as my back up so that might be cheating. Lol
