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.
