Is Samsung set to launch a new smartphone? Will the brand launch Samsung Galaxy S7 this year or do we have to wait till 2016?
It hasn’t been long since Samsung launched Galaxy S6 and there are already stories about the company planning to launch its next flagship – Samsung Galaxy S7. If you are a fan of this brand and how it announces new products every year, here is everything you need to know about Samsung Galaxy S7:
Rumored release date and pricing
As the brand has not officially announced anything yet, tech experts are only speculating about the price and release date. As per the report published on Tech Advisor, Samsung will launch Samsung Galaxy S7 somewhere around £649 either by the end of 2015 or in 2016. But yes, the publication also says that the device might be priced at £649 only if it is designed with the curved screen technology in mind.
Samsung S7 specifications
More good news for Samsung lovers. The latest device from the brand is said to be finally upgrading to 4K resolution. If Korean site Kbench is to be believed, Samsung is planning to register a trademark for Turtle Glass, a glass stronger than Gorilla. Another website, inews24.com, says that the brand is planning to bring a lighter yet tougher magnesium-based alloy to this new device.
Whether this new smartphone will have a slot for microSD card is unknown. Unlike some of the high-end smartphones from the company, Galaxy S7 might not be waterproof. The experts also believe that this smartphone can just follow one of the latest smartphone designs and feature a USB Type-C port.
Another news is that Samsung may not use its own chip for Galaxy S7. The brand may actually switch to Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820. With JK Shin admitting to using Qualcomm products for the brand’s next set of products, the rumor may not be a rumor after all. Here is what the head of Samsung Mobile had to say about Qualcomm:
“We have to use the best engines to make our products competitive, which is why we opted to use our own chips. But we may very well end up using products from Qualcomm again in the next Galaxy phone.”
No matter which rumor turns out to be true, it looks like Samsung Galaxy S7 is going to set new records.
