So the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress in February and the leaks on specs have flown freely.
There have been some differences on some of these specs such as Venture Beat claiming the Galaxy S7 will come with a 5.5” curved display while mobile spec site GSMArena points to 5.1”. Both sites agree with the display being an AMOLED screen with 1440×2560 resolution, but that’s expected for smartphones coming out at this point.
Other spec expectations seem to match up: 4GB RAM, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be in the house, an octa-core processor, and a split between whether a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 Octa 8890 will be used. Back in late November Samsung announced that it was working on BRITECELL, a piece of camera lighting tech that some believe will make it to the Galaxy S7.
The Usual storage sizes have been mentioned for initial launch phones: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. A lot of this is speculation based on how the phone developed over time. Some things such as display size that have remained the same between S5 and S6—with differences in resolution—can change in the S7 or the company could decide not to mess with what works. Also the release window has always been fairly accurate—early spring.
We’ll have to wait until the MWC to see what Samsung cooks up or what bread crumbs the company drops between now and then.
