Samsung officially teases its Unpacked trailer for 'The Next Galaxy'

Samsung officially teases its Unpacked trailer for 'The Next Galaxy'
A short while ago, Evan Blass leaked a couple of screenshots to all-but confirm the launch of the Galaxy S7 on February 21st. Now, the full clip and source of those screenshots has been officially shared by Samsung, casting aside any lingering doubts. It's only a 15-second teaser, and surely the first of many as Sammy looks to ramp up hype in advance of its forthcoming flagship. 

For those still excited by a new Galaxy S release from Samsung, the S7 and S7 edge should deliver more of the same in terms of aesthetics. The standard model is expected to offer a 5.1-inch display, whilst its more curvaceous cousin will probably boast a 5.5-inch panel. Under the hood, there'll no doubt be some great improvements, with reports of vastly improved battery life to accompany the customary processor bump. 

Despite being easy on the eye, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge lacked what many long-time fans deemed to be a core feature in a microSD slot. With the S7 family, it would appear that users will once again be able to add many gigabytes of memory on-the-cheap, which will only add to the appeal of these two new handsets. 

While the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will now unquestionably be revealed on February 21st, many will be eagerly awaiting news on a potential release. Evan Blass, who's usually correct with information on such matters, believes that both handsets will hit the European and U.S. markets on March 11th.

So, five weeks from this coming Friday, early adopters will likely be able to get their hands on Samsung's next major release. The question is, will you be indulging? 

Check out the brief teaser, and be sure to let us know if you're excited for the Galaxy S7 by dropping us a comment below.

USB-C with v3.1 would be awesome!

I agree in that USB-C with v3.1 would be amazing but after seeing this video, I highly doubt it. It looks like the 2015 Gear VR is in the video, which means the S7 will be compatible with it.

People waiting for s7 should already be saving now for two things: S7 and a 128gb microsd card. Powerbanks? Not on the list anymore if s7's 3000mah is well-optimized. Just one frustration on samsung: Bring the god damn a3 2016 in asian countries! I'm itching to test that compact phone with superb camera.

The most anticipated device of 2016 is coming out. Samsung = King

It's the most anticipated device in Q1 of 2016. You still have the Note 6, LG G5, NEXUS 7 and if Sony and HTC get their head straight we might have a great 2016. Outside of Android you still have to wait for iPhone 7 and the rumored Surface phone. Not that Windows phone will sell more than a few thousand but still you have to wait for all of them.

For the next few years, in the business/tech world, the most anticipated device is still the iPhone. That's just a plain fact, for now it's still the "it" phone, but it's coming down to earth.

Most anticipated phone of 2016 is one and only iphone 7 and 7 plus nothing else matters

14. TerryTerius unregistered

For you, and that's fine. Given the couple hundred million galaxy S phones Samsung has sold so far, there are plenty of individuals that care about the release of the S7 as well. And then there are people like me, who by both. Either way, there's no need to be so fanboy-ish about it. It's one thing to say that iPhones are generally the most anticipated devices, I would agree with you on that from a sales standpoint. It's another thing to say that nothing else matters.

Last time I looked. All nexus devices only get 1 najor software update per year and none of them have even come close to offering anything that Samsung offers, my nexus 6p does nothing with it big screen, just a joke
