Samsung Galaxy S7 to Launch in February

While we’ve long realized that Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were going to be unveiled at some point in mid-2016, recently a renowned smartphone leaker Evan Blass tweeted a quick note claiming that the S7 phone will hit the U.S. market on Friday, March 11.

The company will likely unwrap its next flagship smartphone S7 either on February 21 at a dedicated special event or at Mobile World Congress that will take place between February 22 and 25 in Barcelona, Spain. It will be unveiled alongside up to three other models including the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 Edge+.

It will also come with a pressure sensitive screen and a feature similar to Apple’s Live Photos. Waterproofing and a Micro-SD card slot are looking more probable, as well.

It likewise fits in with a noteworthy leak from China Mobile a month ago which claims the device will be released there in late February. Generally eastern markets have a tendency to get a slight head start on Samsung phone releases.
