Don’t look now, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 rumors are sneaking up right behind you. Indeed, we’re barely a few weeks beyond the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 announcements and already talking about next-gen stuff. Yes, it’s time to look to 2016 and the presumed Galaxy S7 models.
According to sources close to SamMobile, the Galaxy S7 will be offered in two display sizes. If accurate, the smaller model will have a 5.2-inch screen while the larger one offers up 5.8-inches of display. Reportedly, the Galaxy S7 could feature an UHD display at 4K resolution, but it’s not certain whether this would be for just the bigger one or both.
It makes sense that Samsung might want to follow the path set forth with the Galaxy S6. Specifically, giving customers the option between a standard size and a Plus model, too. This, conceivably, opens the door to Edge variants of both sizesas well.
Other details already tumbling about in the rumor mill for this device include two processor options: Samsung Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon.
As to when we’ll see the Galaxy S7 remains uncertain, but we’re guessing it’s some time in early spring. Historically, Samsung has launched its flagship device around Mobile World Congress and IFA; however it seems to be speeding up the pace a bit.
Given Samsung may have turned to using the Agile developmental system, it could cut the time by another 1-2 months. Either way, it’s still really early in the game and there’s plenty of time for things to change.
