Recently, we showed you alleged press renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which were leaked by master leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter). Now, Samsung has released a new video trailer that teases “The Next Galaxy.”
“The Next Galaxy” is coming
Unfortunately, the video doesn’t show the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It does mention, however, that it will be lifting the lid on “The Next Galaxy” at its Unpacked 2016 event, which kicks off on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain (the rumoured time and place Samsung is planning to unveil its new flagship).
Here’s the video:
Here’s what we know so far:
The 21st of February is a few weeks away, but, if you can’t wait for Samsung’s official announcement, we’ve gathered a lot of information about the unannounced devices via past rumours. Judging from the devices’ leaked press renders, we can see that the two look a lot like their predecessors. As for specs, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, is expected to feature a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). In the photography department, the device is expected to feature Samsung’s new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera (although it offers a smaller megapixel count, it is said to be an upgrade to the 16-megapixel camera on board the Galaxy S6) that is more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a ever-familiar 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC for markets such as the US and China, and a Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC for international markets (including the UK). 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Unlike its predecessors, the S7 and the S7 Edge are said to feature microSD card slots and IP67 certifications, meaning they will be dust and water proof. The two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port, which means faster charging, faster data charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the connector the wrong way ever again.
