Evan Blass, who leaked information on the BlackBerry Priv, has claimed that there will be two phones – the S7 and the S7 Edge.
There will be Micro SD compatibility, water resistance and a better battery. In another tweet, he said he wasn’t convinced there would also be an S7 Edge+ – claiming that the size difference wouldn’t be significant enough.
Samsung Galaxy S7 release date
The current rumour is that of January release as Samsung set their sights on usurping Apple’s position of power by pre-empting any release of a 6C/7C device in spring.
If these rumours turn out to be false, then recent history would point to a late February unveiling. Samsung has unveiled its past three Galaxy S flagships at the Mobile World Congress. The MWC this year is being held in late february.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Price
There’s been no insider knowledge to suggest any variation from previous models, so it would make sense for it to follow the pricing structure of the S6 which at launch was £599.
