Samsung may concurrently launch three variants of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7. A prolific tipster claims that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer plans to launch the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge+ at an upcoming event – without providing a time-line.
Well-known, credible tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks took it to Twitter to note that Samsung plans to launch the aforementioned three variants of the Galaxy S7 at once. Missing from the list is the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus. At this point, it is not clear if Samsung intends to launch this variant later or if it has cancelled the version altogether.
Multiple reports suggest that Samsung will utilise the Mobile World Congress event, scheduled to commence from February 22 through February 25, 2016. As for what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S7, the smartphone is expected to offer top-of-the-line hardware specifications and features including an iris scanner. Samsung was previously tipped to have a Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event scheduled for February 20.
According to a report from earlier, the Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch Super Amoled display with a QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution. The Galaxy S7 Edge is said to have a 5.5-inch Super Amoled display, also with a QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution.
Both the handsets are rumoured to be either powered by Exynos 8 octa-core (Exynos 8890) or Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM. They are expected to come in two storage options: 32GB and 64GB and support expandable storage up to 200GB via microSD card. On the camera front, both the smartphones are rumoured to feature a 12-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture.
