The new rumour comes from Italian-speaking HDBlog.it. According to its sources, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be available in two versions – the regular 5.2-inch Galaxy S7 and a bigger 5.7-inch Galaxy S7 Edge. The report adds that the larger S7 Edge will only be slightly curved, but, not only will we see a curved screen on both sides, we will also see a curved screen on the top and bottom of the device.

Here’s another bit of information about the upcoming Galaxy S7. If you were disappointed that the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge did not come with a microSD card slot, Samsung could be planning to make up for this by re-introducing the feature in the Galaxy S7. According to HDBlog.it’s sources, both versions of the S7 will feature a microSD card slot.

Here’s what we know so far:

We’ve learned from past reports that the Galaxy S7 will rock either Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, depending on the region. 50% of S7 units are said to feature the former, and 50% are said to feature the later. As far as RAM goes, the S7 is said feature 4 GB of RAM. In the photography department, the S7 is said to feature Samsung’s new 20-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera. Lastly, it is said to feature a USB Type-C connector, which seems to be the trend of flagships these days. A USB Type-C connector allows users to enjoy more from faster data transfer and faster charging. It also allows users to never worry about plugging in the USB connector the wrong way, since it is reversible.

According to reports, Samsung will lift the lid on the Galaxy S7 on schedule in February of 2016, which is around the same time it announced the Galaxy S6 this year. The difference is, the Korean tech giant is rumoured to launch their next flagship earlier than usual, possibly soon after the S7’s unveiling.

Of course, since none of this is official, take this with a pinch of salt.
