Check out Samsung’s “The Next Galaxy” video

The video doesn’t show us the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, nor does it tease the devices’ design or feature. What it does mention is the date Samsung is planning to lift the lid on its next flagship. It lets us know that we’ll see the two on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain.

Here’s the video:

Here’s what we know so far:

The 21st of February is a few weeks away, but, if you can’t wait for Samsung’s official announcement, we’ve gathered a lot of information about the unannounced devices via past rumours. Judging from the devices’ leaked press renders, we can see that the two look a lot like their predecessors. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to sport a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, is expected to sport a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC (US and China) and a Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC for international markets (including the UK). 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. In the photography department, the device is expected to feature Samsung’s new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera (although it offers a smaller megapixel count, it is said to be an upgrade to the 16-megapixel camera on board the Galaxy S6) that is more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a ever-familiar 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Unlike its predecessors, the S7 and the S7 Edge are said to feature microSD card slots and IP67 certifications, meaning they will be dust and water proof. The two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port, which means faster charging, faster data charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the connector the wrong way ever again.

3D renders allegedly show LG G5

Earlier this January, we came across diagrams that allegedly show the unannounced LG G5. The diagrams showed that LG has moved the volume buttons from the back of the smartphone to the left side. Additionally, the renders showed a device with thinner bezels and a curved back. The curved back is believed to provide a better grip for users. Alleged case renders of LG G5 also surfaced re-confirming that the device’s volume buttons have been moved. They also reveal that the device will feature a fingerprint scanner under the rear-facing camera. Now, new 3D renders of the device have surfaced, giving us another look at the unannounced device.

Techconfigurations created the 3D renders above. The new renders are based on the leaked diagrams and case renders that surfaced in the past. According to the site, the LG G5 will feature a 5.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The front-facing camera is said to be an 8-megapixel snapper that will take care of snapping selfies and video chat. The dual camera setup is said to consist of a 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. This new rear-facing camera setup is said to allow users to change the field of focus after an image is captured. This camera also comes with 4K video recording support and optical image stabilisation. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It is said to feature a reversible Type-C USB port. Lastly, it is expected to be 8.2 mm-thick, which is slightly thinner than the LG G4.

Like any unconfirmed report, take this information with a pinch of salt.

An LG press event will be taking place on the 21st of February (a day before Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in Barcelona, Spain) where the South Korean phone maker is expected to lift the lid on the LG G5. This is the same day and venue the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut.

Check out these new Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and S7 Plus case renders

MobileFun (1, 2, & 3) has leaked what it claims to be case and cover renders that show the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus. The cases and covers are now available for pre-order from the UK-based online retailer.

Case makers have been known to create accurate renders of unannounced devices sporting their cases. These renders are likely based on leaked CAD renders that leaked in the past. If the CAD renders show the real deal, the renders above should show what the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus actually look like.

We’ve learned from previous rumours that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is said to feature a larger 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus is expected to feature an even larger 6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). If you were disappointed that the S6 and S6 Edge did not come with IP67 certification, you’ll be happy to know that the S7 is rumoured to be dust and water proof. Bummed the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge did not feature a microSD card slot? If so, you’ll be happy to know that the S7 series is expected to feature the said feature. Its camera combo is said to consist of a new and larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that is more ideal in for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. The S7 is said to rock two different CPUs, depending on the region. US and Chinese versions are said to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version is expected to feature the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. The S7 is expected to rock 4 GB of RAM.

Samsung is expected to officially announce their next flagship on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain and launch the devices in the 11th of March.

Galaxy S7 phone upgrade program from Samsung coming?

If you’re worried you won’t have enough to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, we’ve got potentially good news for you. Samsung is reportedly planning to launch a phone upgrade program that will make it easier for buyers to get their hands on Samsung’s upcoming flagship.

Samsung Galaxy S7 phone upgrade program

This new rumour comes from Korean-speaking ET News. According to the report, Samsung is getting ready to introduce a new phone upgrade program that will works similar to Apple’s iPhone upgrade plan. It is said to launch in March, which is the same time the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to hit shelves.

According to the report, the program will initially be only available in South Korea, but we’re guessing that it will be available in other markets soon after.

In the UK, iPhone buyers can get store credit if they turn in their older iPhones or iDevices. This store credit can be used to get a discount on the Apple iPhone 6S or the Apple iPhone 6S Plus. In the US, iPhone buyers can opt to get their hands on a new iPhone for a monthly fee and by trading in their older iPhone. It still remains a mystery on how exactly Samsung’s phone upgrade will work, but it’s likely that it will offer options similar to the options offered by Apple’s upgrade program.

Of course, since we can’t verify if this information is accurate, take it with a pinch of salt.

According to past reports, the S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the S7 Edge will feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Its camera combo will consist of a new and larger 12-megapixel front-facing camera (rumoured to be more ideal for images capturing and video recording in low-light conditions) and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It will feature two different processors, depending on the market. The US and Chinese versions will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version (UK version) will feature the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Unlike its predecessor, it is said to feature a microSD card slot and have IP67-certification (dust and water proof). A USB Type-C connector and fingerprint scanner is expected to be on board.
