Samsung To Launch Galaxy S7 Variants At MWC 2016?
In the past couple of years, Samsung has used the Mobile World Congress (MWC) as the launch pad for releasing tech products. This time, it is no exception for the South Korean tech giant as the company is almost certain of launching its Galaxy S7 model at the event in Barcelona starting Feb. 22.Advertisement
Last year, the company launched the Galaxy S6 along with the Galaxy S6 Edge at the MWC event. Chances are high that Samsung will follow the same strategy of unveiling its Galaxy S7 model with the Galaxy S7 Edge at Barcelona this year. However, reports suggest that the multinational conglomerate company may surprise fans with not two, but three variants of the Galaxy S7 with varying screen sizes, notes Master Herald.
According to GSM Arena, Samsung will have three different screen sizes for its S7 device, which hints at three S7 variants. The Galaxy S7 will sport a flat 5.1-inch screen size which will not be curved, the Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a slightly bigger 5.5-inch screen, while the Galaxy S7+ Edge will have a bigger screen measuring 6 inches.
Reports state that Samsung had chosen to release the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge during the MWC event in February in 2015, while it went on launching its Galaxy S6 Edge+ five months later in August the same year. However, this time around the tech company won’t be splitting the launch date of its S7 flagship models; instead, it will opt for a same-day release.
The Indian Express reports that the Galaxy S7 will be 10 percent cheaper than the Galaxy S6, although it is not sure how the Korean company will finally determine the price tag of the device. Another report in the Korean Times indicates that there are minimal design plans for the Galaxy S7, and the model will share similar metal and glass design as was used in the S6 and S6 Edge.
