Ready for the Galaxy S7? A second report has surfaced claiming Samsung will release its next flagship phone a lot earlier than usual.
According to ETNews, the Galaxy S7 will be revealed at an event in January. The report mentions the 19th (a Tuesday) as the possible date for the company’s big announcement. That’s more than a month ahead of Mobile World Congress, where Samsung typically unveils its next big thing.
The report also notes that the Galaxy S7 will feature a new chip that combines multiple sensors for a more efficient design. The device will allegedly come in “premium” and “sub-premium” options. We’re guessing that’s a reference to the more expensive Galaxy S7 edge and its flat-screened sibling.
The Galaxy S7 is also expected to feature a USB-C charging port and a Snapdragon 820 chip in America. The company may also offer its own version of 3D Touch using new ClearForce technology from Synaptics.
We’re not really sure what to expect from the design, but Samsung may not need to change much. The Galaxy S6 is still one of the most beautiful smartphones around, though hopefully the company can still find a way to improve on its work with the S7.
