Samsung Galaxy S7 to launch on March 11th?
A tweet from Evan Blass disseminated by the tipster on Friday, reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will have its U.S. release on Friday, March 11th. We expect to see the new flagship phone unveiled on February 21st during Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event. That happens to be the day before the 2016 Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona.

The latest rumors call for the Samsung Galaxy S7 to carry a 5.1-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Depending on where you live, the phone will be powered by either the Snapdragon 820 chipset (US. and China) or the Exynos 8890 SoC (for the rest of the world). 4GB of RAM is inside, and a model recently tested by AnTuTu offered 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the rear of the phone, with a 5MP selfie snapper on front.

At the same time that the Galaxy S7 is introduced, we should see the larger-screened Samsung Galaxy S7 edge unveiled. This model will sport a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen. There is some speculation that the Galaxy S7 series will bring back some of the features found on 2014's Samsung Galaxy S5 that disappeared the following year. We are talking about a microSD slot, IP67 certification (proving that the phone is protected from dust and water), and a removable battery.

I am going post some exclusive news about the new Samsung s7

The news is from my carphone contacts
2 sizes 5.1 and 5.5 in the uk comes with Samsung CPU
Both with 4gb of ram
And this is the big one sd card support
And the 2nd big one and the Apple under cut, they are only stocking 1 model type and that 64gb, 5.1 prices same as 16gb iPhone and 5.5 s7 prices same as iPhone plus 16gb, no joke

Please note the 1 64gb model I am on about the uk only what they offer in China may be less, but I think it will be the same for the USA, please note I be thinking they doing this to save cash so they do not need to stock more than 1 model

Also this is why all the models that have been in testing have all had 64gb

I just hope they figure out the ram management with S7 then it will be the best android skin

The memory management was an intentional programmer design... They wanted to achieve similar endurance ratings on the S6 using a smaller capacity Lithium-ion battery. Killing tasks in the background after a certain number has been open was a battery conservation mechanism. A bad one at that, let's hope they found a more sophisticated way to curb power.

I doubt that's the reason, since killing tasks would mean there's much less memory used most of the time, while there's actually not that much memory free, even after a long time of idling. In fact, killing tasks doesn't save extra battery, freezing them (if active) does. Unused memory is wasted memory in Android and no meaningful correlation with battery usage.

They fixed it later on with updates. It's not as good as some other phones still but marshmallow beta seems even better in RAM management and on par with other flagships.

Also killing tasks doesn't save power. The major battery killing apps like Facebook and Google restart themselves and do what they do best: suck power. Also fetching tasks from RAM is more efficient than fetching them from storage everytime.

It was a stupid decision and thanks to backlash, they are fixing it. I personally never had an issue since i never juggle between more than 5 apps at a time.

I got Marshmallow on my S6 and multitasking has definitely improved, though it's still nowhere near as good as my 6P

That's bad. I guess they need to rework their software.

That being sad, I have no issues with even the worse multitasking on 5.1.1, so it will be enough for me.

I saw this though. It's more than enough for me:

I was hoping for February since I've had my Galaxy S5 since launch and usually buy a new phone every year but the Galaxy S6 was such a disappointment, and I kept thinking so much about whether I wanted the LG G4 I figured I might as well just wait for the Galaxy S7, and with the SD slot and waterproofing I've finally found a phone I'm actually looking forward too.

If the S7 was the one with the 5.5" screen, I would definitely buy it. I liked the S6 well enough, except for the screen being too small, and I still have zero interest in an Edge model.

Ram management was great on my note 5 so it doesn't look like that's a thing anymore. The 820 with 4gb of ram with a fat trimmed TouchWiz will be a beast of a phone! Waterproofing and sd card slot will be icing on the cake!

The hardware will be great but as always the software will be untrustable, updates won't be seen for months and we'll get the usual, carriers are in the way/region excuse.

Always a hit and miss when it's comes to new Android phones. Either Google needs to step in and somehow take control of the software or something the Oems needs to shove the carriers out of the way and directly feed software to the device.

Every other day new software glitches are found and phones carry more personal data than ever, we need to have an instant update mechanism, at least just for security patches.
