Samsung Galaxy S7 will debut in January 2016
South Korean news sources have eliminated one more secret regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship smartphone. According to recent publications there, the device will be launched in January 2016 but the exact date is still unknown.
The device will be available in several versions that will be based on two processors – Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and an unspecified Samsung Exynos chip that will combine processing cores, graphics and a modem. The Snapdragon-based version will be available in China and the USA, while Europe, Japan and South Korea will get the Exynos-based model. There are also rumors that Samsung will have a special version for emerging markets such as India.
Previously the Galaxy S7 was expected in March 2016 during the Mobile World Congress exhibition in Spain but intense competition from Apple has prompted the Korean smartphone maker Samsung to pull the launch with two months. The Galaxy S7 may also come with several new features that we haven’t heard of before in order to battle the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The smartphone may come with ClearForce technology that is similar to Apple’s 3D Touch screen tech and even better audio hardware that this time might be the SABRE 9018AQ2M, which is currently the world’s most powerful 32-bit stereo converter for mobile devices. The Galaxy S7 should also have a USB Type-C connector and a glass and magnesium design but it is unknown whether the device will have a removable battery or not.
