Galaxy S7 cleared for U.S. landing, more details revealed

The Galaxy S7 is just a few weeks away from its official debut, and it looks like the device is already cleared for landing on all the major U.S. carriers. A new FCC filing recently surfaced for both the flagship Android phone and the curved-screen Galaxy S7 Edge.

Special variants of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were spotted for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and even US Cellular. Interestingly, it looks like the AT&T and Verizon versions were manufactured in Korea, while the rest come from China and Vietnam. We also see a new outline of the device, confirming the placement of buttons and ports around the edges.

Additionally, the FCC filing includes a list of key features for the Galaxy S7. Most of these are pretty standard (GPS, NFC, SMS/MMS and Bluetooth). However, it also offers Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST), essentially confirming that the new phone will offer Samsung Pay for making contactless mobile payments.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to pack plenty of high-end hardware, including a Quad HD display, a cutting-edge processor and 4GB of RAM. Samsung may also introduce a few new features, including USB-C, expandable storage and a water-resistant design, though the design isn’t expected to change very much from last year’s Galaxy S6.
