Having seen the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge details continue to surface over the last few weeks, the build up to the inevitable release continues to build momentum. We’ve seen benchmarks for the new Exynos processor for the Galaxy S7 leaked out, as well as a website detailing the screen sizes for the devices.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 was first released on April 10th, 2015, and it was widely expected to be around the same date that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge would make an appearance. However, new details have emerged stating that even though Samsung will continue to announce the Galaxy S7 devices at MWC 2016, just as it did with the Galaxy S6, the delay to actual release won’t be as soon. In fact, @evleaks states that Friday March 11th, 2016, will be the chosen date for Samsung to unveil the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

Proposed Samsung Galaxy S7 Specs
- Adreno 530 Graphics
- 4GB LP-DDR4 RAM
- Exynos chipset or Snapdragon 820
- 32GB or 64GB storage

- Galaxy S7 – 5.1-inch UHD screen

Samsung always set the benchmark when it comes to specs it can pack into a device, so there’s no doubt that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be powerhouses. What will be interesting is how Samsung implement their TouchWiz software on the new devices. The skin overlay has continued to be stripped back as the years go on, so it’ll be interesting to see the direction Samsung take with their next version.
