The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut on the 21st of March at Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, Spain. This is a day before Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in the country. The question is, when is the Korean tech giant planning to release their new flagship? A serial leakster may have the answer to this question.
March 11 release?
The serial leakster in question is Evan Blass (also known as @evleaks on Twitter). According to Blass, Samsung could release the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge on the 11th of March, in the US at least. We still don’t know if this also applies to other markets, but we’re guessing it will arrive in the UK at around the same in the US.
Here’s the tweet:
Starting to look like a Friday, March 11th Galaxy release in the U.S.

We’ve learned from previous reports that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to feature a larger 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). In the photography department, the S7 is expected to feature a new and larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that is more ideal in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. The S7 is expected to feature different processors depending on the market. For US and Chinese markets, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC is expected to be found under the hood. For international markets (including the UK), the Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC is expected to be found under the hood. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Unlike the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, the S7 and S7 Edge are expected to sport a microSD card slot for additional storage options. The S7 is expected to be IP67-certified, which means it will be water and dust proof. Design-wise, the S7 is expected to offer the same glass and metal design just like its predecessor.
