Earlier rumors pertaining to the Samsung Galaxy S7 launch date have been split. The rumored months include January, February and March 2016. However, a credible tipster now says the device will be introduced in February.

The Galaxy S7 and the curved-edge clad sibling Galaxy S7 Edge will reportedly be launched on Feb. 21, 2016, just eight days earlier than the predecessor, the Galaxy S6 that was announced on March 1 this year, according to the trust-worthy tipster @Ricciolo1.

Also, it is worth noting that the Mobile World Congress i.e. MWC 2016 has been scheduled in the week of Feb. 22, 2016 in Barcelona. This year, the same event started on March 2. Samsung announced the flagship just a day before March 2. And in 2016, apparently, the South Korean tech giant will be following the same pattern and announce the device just a day before the MWC 2016 event, according to GSM Arena.

Moving on to the rumored Galaxy S7 specifications, the handset will reportedly come as two variants. Samsung’s new Exynos 8890, also known as Exynos M1, will be powering one of the variants, whereas the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC will be part of the other model.

The device is also believed to sport a 5.7 or 5.8-inch display. Plus, a 5.2-inch variant has also been tipped for those that like their handsets to be handy. The Galaxy S7 will apparently feature a magnesium alloy body. This alloy is apparently stronger than the aluminum series 6013 used in the Galaxy S6. Overall, the device will be made of a mix of glass and magnesium materials.

Moreover, a cool 12-megapixel rear-facing BRITECELL sensor is expected to be part of the upcoming flagship. Other key Galaxy S7 features include ESS Technology Stereo D/A converter, microSD card slot, Cat.12 modem capability and a replaceable battery. In any case, readers should note that the South Korean tech giant has not confirmed the specifications or launch date thus far.
