Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge to launch with less bloatware
Those unhappy with the amount of bloatware found on previous versions of Samsung's flagship phones, will be happy to hear that less bloatware is expected to be on the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge when the pair is unveiled during Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event less than 24 hours from now.

Samsung is said to be moving some of the bloatware to the Google Play Store, or will place it inside its own Galaxy Apps marketplace. According to a report, the only pre-installed applications on the new flagship models will be the Browser, File Manager, Music Player, Gallery and Voice Recorder. A brief 14 second video gives a quick look at the software on the phone, which will apparently be weighed down less by bloatware than in previous years.

We should see confirmation that Samsung has lessened the bloat on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge tomorrow, starting at 1pm EDT, when Samsung Unpacked 2016 takes place. As we told you the other day, you can view the festivities live streamed by Samsung in 360-degrees.
