Samsung released a teaser video today on its official YouTube channel announcing that the new Galaxy S7 will be officially unveiled on Sunday, February 21, at a media event in Barcelona, Spain.
During the past few weeks, those interested could crunch through a decent amount of rumours revealing the tech specs Samsung’s flagship handsets — the S7 and S7 Edge — will pack. Following an image of the front panel that leaked about a month ago, Ben Evans of Evleaks posted an image showing the rear of the handsets today.
The forthcoming devices will allegedly pack a much bigger battery, addressing the concerns of Galaxy users who complained about the S6’s battery life. Hence, the S7 will pack a 3000 mAh battery, while the S7 Edge will have a 3600 mAh battery.
Earlier leaks also revealed that the S7 and S7 Edge will be equipped with a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor (depending on the targeted market), 4 GB of RAM and a 12 MP rear camera (downgraded from 16 MP), which has the benefit of dropping the camera bump.
VentureBeat also confirms that Samsung will bring back the microSD slot, and the new phones will be dust- and water-resistant.
As for the display size, the S7 will feature a 5.1-inch display, while the S7 Edge will have a 5.5-inch screen — previous reports put its size at 5.7 inches).
