Today, confirmation that Sammy's new flagship will be introduced on February 21st came from a pair of images tweeted by none other than Evan Blass. The first frame shows a partially opened box with #TheNextGalaxy overlaid on top. The next frame shows the same background image, but this time the date Feb 21, 2016 is overlaid on top. It isn't clear where the images came from, but the implication is that they are from Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 should be accompanied by the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge at the Unpacked event. We expect the Samsung Galaxy S7 to feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. Depending on where you hang your hat, the Exynos 8890 SoC or the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be under the hood. 4GB of RAM will be inside, along with a 3000mAh battery. A 12MP BRITECELL camera will adorn the back of the handset. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge will carry a larger 5.5-inch, Super AMOLED screen with a QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution.
Some of the features that we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S5 that disappeared on the Samsung Galaxy S6, like IP67 certification for dust and water proofing, and a microSD slot, are expected to return on the Galaxy S7.
Thanks for the tip!
