Samsung Unpacked event to take place at Mobile World Congress

Samsung announced today that it will unveil the Galaxy S7 at the Unpacked event held on February 21st at 7PM. The event will take place at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The doors to the event will open one hour earlier. You will also be able to watch the event live on YouTube and Samsung Newsroom.         Samsung released a teaser video to go with the announcement and their lips and images are sealed shut because there is not much to speculate from the vid. All we get is a hashtag, a Gear VR-using person and a floating cube. Rumors put the device packing a Snapdragon 820 processor with a returning microSD slot and possibly USB Type-C support.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3g3O94WALV8     Rumors put the official launch day of the next Samsung flagships on March 11, but we will find out for sure on February 21st. We will keep you posted with details regarding the devices. Stay tuned!   Source: Samsung  

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge renders surface online

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge may have just sprouted on the Interwebz today. The renders show a design similar to the 2015 Samsung flagships, but there are a few design changes to be had. One of them is the taller fingerprint sensors and the rounder corners of the devices.       We must thank Evan Blass (@evleaks) for these renders because, as usual, he managed to make them public for all of us to enjoy. The devices are expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress in February.   According to previous rumors, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will have larger batteries than their predecessors, going for 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh cells respectively. On the inside, the devices should sport Samsung’s Exynos 8 octa core processors and 4GB of RAM. The devices for some regions may show up with Snapdragon 820 variants. The return of microSD slots has been vehiculated as well.   As it happens with all leaked renders, you should take it all in with a grain of salt. We only have to wait for a few more days before Samsung unveils its newest flagship anyway. Stay tuned!   Source: AndroidCentral  

Samsung Galaxy S7 renders appear online – could the 2016 flagship really look like this?

Its official release is still a long way away, but that does not mean that the internet and its snitches will not show us everything there is to know about a device beforehand.       The released images show a Galaxy S7 pretty similar in shape and form to Galaxy Note 5. In order to make the device look thinner, its corners are curved inwards on the back of the device. The S7 Edge variant should be the same with the exception that its edges would point up front. We don’t have an official spec list yet, but speculation runs amok.   Here’s what we know about Samsung Galaxy S7: 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560p (Quad HD) Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Samsung Exynos 8890 4 GB RAM Android 6.0 Marshmallow 20MP back camera with 4K video recording features 8MP front camera 3,500 mAh battery 16/32/64 GB storage with microSD slot (possibly) fingerprint scanner force touch pressure-sensitive panel under the display Corning Gorilla Glass 5 front and back panels, curved glass edges on the rear dimensions: 143.4 x 70.8 x 6.9mm.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw19QpNNDgk     The video above was published by 3D designer Jermaine Smit, who says that he based his images on the leaked designs of Samsung Galaxy S7. The images in this article are also based on Smit’s 3D designs – they are not photos. Expect the real device to […]
